Mark Sanford Irony of the Day: Michigan’s Admitted Adulterer Gubernatorial Candidate’s Ads

By Debbie Schlussel
When news of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s affair broke, last week, and he held his bizarre press conference about it, I couldn’t help but laugh at the Mike Cox for Governor ad that popped up on my computer screen as I read the Associate Press story online.
Michigan Attorney General Mike Cox, about whom I’ve written quite a bit on this site, is Michigan’s version of Sanford . . . only far worse. A serial philanderer, he’s a sleazy, Napoleonic Republican trying to become Michigan’s next Governor. But things turned out differently for him. Unlike the classy Jenny Sanford, Cox’s wife Laura is a lot like Hillary Clinton and she appeared, crying by his side, as he admitted just one of his many extramarital affairs . . . because hubby helps her advance her political career. And he got away with it. There are rumors that a courtroom videotape shows Cox having sex with yet another of his many paramours in an empty Wayne County courthouse, when he was a prosecutor.
So, it was a strange coincidence that the Islamo-pandering fraud, Cox, had his ads pop up, as generated by Google Ads, on the Yahoo page showing the AP story on Sanford. Let’s hope that Cox’s political career goes in the same direction. He’s far more sleazy than his South Carolina counterpart.

The one thing I don’t get is wives who condone and excuse their husband’s serial philandering. It may be one thing if a man shows poor judgment once in a marriage; its a different matter when he repeatedly breaks his marriage vows and the wife is asked to come out and justify it because “every one does it.” As long we don’t expect high standards of behavior of those run for and serve in public office, we shouldn’t be surprised when they have the comportment of a pig wallowing about in the mud. Shame is truly gone in this country and we can’t count on it taking the likes of Mike Cox down.

Why must I forgive this person? If anyone else took off form their job without letting anyone know of their whereabouts, how long would they have their job? On top of that, how would an implausible lie followed by an squalid truth be received by any employer? Would any normal employer retain such an employee? Why must the people of South Carolina endure such a person?

If the fear of G-d isn’t with you, there is nothing to restrain one’s earthly desires. The only true restraint on human nature is morals imposed by religion and in a post-Christian world, we would expect to see people act as they would in the absence of faith. In a fallen world, that is exactly what we’re seeing before our own eyes today.

Kudos for not letting the sick irony of Cox’ candidacy go unnoticed, Debbie.
Heck, since Cox is Michigan’s top law enforcement official as AG, and John Conyers (from Michigan) is the head of the House Judiciary Committee, felon perjurer Kwame Kilpatrick was mayor of our biggest city, Monica Conyers, president of the Detroit City Council is now a bribery convict, etc etc, it seems that sleaze is pre-requisite for high office these days in the idiocracy of Michigan.
Thus, Cox is emminently qualified for our governorship! I can’t wait for the rest of the bodies to float to the surface in Cox’ role in covering Kwame’s fat ass in the sham $6M “State investigation” he “oversaw.”
Keep the lights white hot on Cox, Debbie.
To the rest of you Michigan media stooges–do your damn jobs! Suck up Beckmann, Paul W, all you morons at channel 2,4,7 etc–stop covering for Cox.

Waaaaaaaaaaaaaa. But here’s a question that was never answered: http://online.wsj.com/article/SB121305642257659301.html And I wonder if Sanford supported Bush for this? And as for D-G, I said previously, the religious Retardicans, the Christians are a bunch of hypocritical buffoons. The Jews took care of my people and not the fucking Christians…And Sanford proved it. At least the Jews don’t believe in the bugga boo in the skies.
