I was listening to Mark Levin tonight and there was a guy who called in from SC District 1, who said that on the ballot there were three choice lines,
Colbert-Bush Working Family Party
Obviously aimed at the “low information” aka stupid voter who didn’t realize there was no “Working Family Party.”
Unbelievable. But where are the Republicans and why do they put up with this sh!t!!
Best best BEST NEWS!!! Let every one of the mafiosofascist ozombie leftwingers be squashed to to the ground.
yes he was running as a Republican...........
“Story developing on Drudge.”
I wonder how it’s developing on The Colbert Report?
One more seat to vote FOR impeachment!
This is great news!!! Now.....if the Stupid Republicans in the house tomorrow just simply conduct their Benghazi investigation simply gathering the facts with no political slant, we can finish off Obama...making him a full lame duck!!! I would not want to be a red state Democrat going into the 2014 mid-terms in love with failed POTUS and traitor Barack Hussein “Benghazi Murderer” Obama!!!
And....if the voters of SC-! want to dump Sanford in the 2014 primary, be my guest!!! It was not close at all. The Colbert-Busch woman got a proper butt spanking....and so did her useless, left-wing brother!!! Good!!! Now she can disappear into the obscurity she and her brother so richly deserve!!! Good Job...Stanford, and....voters in SC-1!!!
>>After all, he has to REDEEM himself now, and we know you dont redeem yourself by being conservative. You redeem yourself by going hard left. Which is where Mark will be now.
I doubt it. He was a conservative the last time he was in the house. The only way he can REDEEM himself in S.C. is by being a solid conservative again.
Associated Press has called it
I haven’t followed this race much, but anything that will make the Comedy Central lemmings cry makes me smile.
Good. We believe in redemption and forgiveness, right?
This should get “the Weiner” aroused. He has a chance after all.
thanks Arec Barrwin
you know that isn’t really Pelosi? :)
“Search twitter etc & see Democrats saying we GOP voters should have rejected him based on our Conservative standards etc. Well, how he will vote is all that I cared about.”
OK, then what does that say about liberal democrat standards? Do they realize they are admitting that they are perfectly comfortable with scumbags?
I don’t think divorce and marital infidelity were the problem from a voter’s point of view. But basically, Governor Sanford abandoned his state, lied about his whereabouts (”hiking on the Appalachian Trail”!) when they couldn’t find him, and threw over all his responsibilities to the people who had elected him in order to run after his Argentine cutie. Talk about a midlife crisis...in which the citizens of SC were the abused party.
We’ve got to do better than this for candidates. Sanford (from an old SC family) had the money to run, and that’s all it takes.
I’ll bet there’s no joy in DUmbassville tonight....
As awful as many Republicans are (and there are many), I still maintain the worst Republican is better than the best Democrat.
I was watching the live returns tallied on Politico and shouted for joy when the check mark went up alongside his name. He easily beat her yet the media said it would be so close that a recount may be necessary. They’re truly worthless!
I had to look that up - I’ve never watched it! I don’t much like current comedy, too many cuss words and bodily function jokes that turn me off.

Once the disgraced and tearful figure at the epicenter of an embarrassing scandal, former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford will return to public life as a U.S. congressman.
The Associated Press has projected Sanford to be the winner of Tuesday’s special election in South Carolina’s first Congressional district race.
No numbers but projection of a win.......
Hear hear! Red state Dems have to be worried about primary challenges as well, with Bloomberg and the Morning Schmo banging to drum. With any luck, we’ll be running against full-blown commies in red states. haha
Just Wow! wow oh wow oh wow! wonder what the margin was..?
“And the stupid national Republican party refused to support Sanford. What stupidity.”
That’s what they’re paying that fat little louse, Karl Rove, for. He’s got his hand on the pulse of the Democrat Party....so why are the Republicans paying him for this cockeyed advice?
The comeback was complete when he defeated Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of political satirist Stephen Colbert. With 87 percent of the precincts reporting, Sanford had 54 percent of the vote.
What did she do?
Yep. I agree. Until his weird meltdown, he was THE most outspoken elected official about the Obama agenda. I felt like he had created the blueprint for beating Obama, and drawing a line between the states and DC. Sort of what we saw later from Perry and Brewer on specific issues.
Sanford has all the conservative creds; he has unfortunately unraveled in his personal life since 2009. I am cautiously optimistic that he could be a real asset in the House.
Ultimately, I’m just glad this guy isn’t my representative. Adultery, dereliction of duty, and misuse of funds is bad enough, but what I really couldn’t stomach was that press-conference of his in which he was sobbing and emoting like a 15-year-old girl, rambling on about his “soul-mate.” Good Lord! Again, what an embarrassing, pathetic excuse for a man.
who cares. he’s a disaster and he will be a disaster for the republicans.
There’s always the possibility he will serve honorably. One never knows.
I did a lot of soul searching over the past few week about what I would do if I lived in that CD and think I’d have voted for him, hoping against hope he would serve faithfully. We’ll see.
Loved the fact that she thought the race was in the bag, and began announcing her support for all the liberal positions on gay marriage, etc. Apparently, Ms. Colbert-Busch forgot she was running in the First Congressional District of South Carolina and disdain for Mark Sanford (alone) would not put her over the top.
Wonder how much money the DNCC, George Soros and other groups dumped into the race? I heard Sanford was outspent 4 or 5 to 1.
Sanford was actually a good Congressman before he won the governorship. If Mark can keep it in his pants, he can do a similar job this time around. My fear is that he’ll interpret his Congressional win as a mandate to run for statewide office again. Memo to Sanford: be thankful the voters of your district were forgiving enough to give you another chance. Now go to work and do your job. And stay the hell out of Argentina.
Right, like we should take standards advice from Dims. Rich.
Another RINO scumbag. Now Primary his ass.
Cheated on his wife
Disappeared from his mandated Office for over a week.
Lied about it for almost a month in public and private.
Is that what passes for a conservative in South Carolina?
Yes!!! We are doing the dance of joy at our house.
Part of it goes through South Carolina. Or at least through North Carolina, or one of the other 57 states.
It helps to stop the socialist and obama agenda, I could never figure out why a couple and I mean just a couple did not want him to win and would rather see a socialist win
You are mistaken. Had the Dems taken this seat, Pelosi would have had an easier time raising money for all Dems in 2014.
This victory gives the House GOP a bit more breathing space.
It is good news whenever a liberal Democrat loses any race.
Though not without fault in his moral value, it's clear that Mark Sanford is not a sodomite. And, unlike his vile opponent, he the type of individual who merits our prayerful forgiveness.
Good. Now primary his freaky ass out in 2014.
Right-—like that’s going to happen after he spends the next 1 1/2 years voting in a conservative, tea party fashion. I predict you’ll be pretty lonely on this quest!
While you’ll be busy trying to primary conservatives in red districts, I’ll be busy trying to bring MORE conservatives into the House and more conservative Senators in to reinforce Ted Cruz. I bet I’ll be having more fun than you.
Sanford, who turns 53 later this month, has never lost a race in three runs for Congress and two for governor.
yet again the elitist establishment refused to help him and just sat there not bothered seeing a socialist win the seat.
Thank goodness SC, I love your state and GA
HUH, not sure what you guys think in CA but here in the south we would rather see us win than someone who would help the socialists and oabma
Sanford had a great debate with “Nancy Pelosi”.
my thoughts too, well said
Woo Hoo, Yay Team!
