Governor Sanford: Rush Limbaugh is an Idiot

I can stop being embarrassed when one of my colleagues from some less benighted state sneers: “What about that Governor of yours?” I can stop muttering apologies that, whatever you might want to say about Mark Sanford, he is an unwavering proponent of smaller government, and if you ever had to work with South Carolina’s mad house of a “government,” you might understand why he says some of those things. (Some, not all, mind you.)

Because none of their progessive, flexible, stimulus-spending chief executives ever had the moxie to call Rush Limbuagh an idiot. In an interview published on Real Clear Politics, Governor Sanford was asked about those people in his party who want President Obama to fail.  The biggest example of that sentiment is Ditto-Head-In-Chief, Rush Limbaugh, who said, on the eve of the inauguration, “I hope he fails.” Sanford replied, “I don’t want him to fail. Anybody who wants him to fail is an idiot, because it means we’re all in trouble.”
Now, the Governor and I disagree about a lot of things. But at least we agree one thing: Rush Limbaugh is an idiot.

  1. I’ll be impressed if he can withstand the blowback from the rabid conservative attack dogs.Congressman Phil Gingrey (R-Ga.) said something similar and the next day was groveling for forgiveness.Let’s hope Sanford has more testicular fortitude than Gingrey displayed.Doug
