South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford just doesn’t get it. Reports the Washington Times:
Embattled South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford acknowledged Tuesday that he has been shaken by the failure of a single fellow Republican to back him in his fight to save his job, but vowed to fight on for conservative causes and for “what God wanted me to do with my life.”
The governor, trying to survive a scandal involving a widely publicized extramarital affair, also compared a new ethics probe over his travel and personal expenses to what he called the baseless complaints brought against former Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin.
“I think I now know what Sarah may have been feeling,” Mr. Sanford told The Washington Times.
Well, I hesitate trying to speak for God. But I suspect he didn’t want Gov. Sanford to cheat on his wife and pick up an Argentinian mistress. And he probably wants Mr. Sanford to concentrate on healing his family. As for fighting for conservative causes, well, as Charles DeGaulle once observed, cemeteries are filled with indispensable men. God will get along just fine if Gov. Sanford becomes Mr. Sanford.
