Mark Sandord appears to be in trouble, more trouble

Gov. Mark Sanford will look back at 2009 and say, “What happened? I was in position to run for the presidency of the United States in 2008. McCain, Palin and Romney seemed to be out of the picture. It was just me and that guy from Minnesota. Then, Brazil, press conferences, C Street, the wife’s statement, and now travel expenses.”

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford, already under fire for an extramarital relationship, should be impeached for abusing state finances, a Republican state senator said Monday.

Sen. David Thomas, in a letter to leaders of the constitutional/administrative subcommittee of the South Carolina Senate Finance Committee, accused his fellow Republican of violating state regulations.

The allegations involve flights he took to London, England, and China in 2006 and 2007 on state business. South Carolina requires the governor to charge the state the lowest rate available unless there are overriding circumstances, such as emergency travel.

“The two flights by Gov. Sanford were in violation of the South Carolina Code of Regulations,” Thomas said in his letter. “The difference in price between the most economical and the more expensive price of the seats the governor chose is approximately $13,700.” (more…)

Sarah Palin serves up more nonsense as she leaves office

I’m not sure how “stepping down” helps anything. One thing is for sure. Palin loves being in front of the camera. She loves the spotlight.

Alan Colmes has more:

In her bizarre farewell speech as governor of Alaska, Sarah Palin fed red meat to the right-wing, invoking patriotism and the military in her first sentence.  It was unclear to whom she was referring when she talked about those who are “tearing down our nation”, “American apologetics” and unmentioned forces “suggesting that our best days were yesterdays.” How can that be, she pleaded, when there are volunteers willing to fight for our freedoms.

Next it was on to criticizing the press, lecturing them that soldiers “are willing to die for you,” so “quit making things up!” And the new governor, Sean Parnell, has a nice family too, “so leave his kids alone!”

After what sounded like a campaign speech for re-election, it was time to defend gun rights, and warn that “You’re going to see anti-hunting, anti-Second Amendment circuses from Hollywood.”  This will be done by using “delicate, tiny, very talented celebrity starlets” who will “use Alaska as a fund raising tool for their anti-Second Amendment causes.” Luckily, “patriots will protect our individual guaranteed right to bear arms.”  And “Hollywood needs to know we eat, therefore we hunt.”

A couple of things

  • I haven’t seen Milk yet, but I think that need to. The screenwriter has just won an Oscar.
  • NAACP calls for the cartoonist to be fired. I’m not worried about the cartoonist. Firing a cartoonist really doesn’t help anyone. He/she is low-hanging fruit. I’m thinking that the editor should have to formally and publicly apologize.
  • Some GOP governors aren’t interested in taking the stimulus. They would rather have people out of work. I wonder if they think that those out-of-work folks didn’t vote for them? I just wonder. (BTW, they should do the right thing and give the money to California.)
  • Secretary of Housing Shaun Donovan states that the mortgage help will go to people who have been playing by the rules.
  • Cruz has won an Oscar for best supporting actressHeath Ledger won best supporting actor for his role as the Joker in Batman. I think that I may be the only person in the world who didn’t think that Ledger was all that and a bag of chips. I think that Jack Nicholson was much better.
  • Former Bush officials are having a tough time finding work.

The Guys from Red State Update have a couple of words about Bristol Palin and teenage girls to throw in here.

Watch and laugh:
