...if the alternative is a complete lack of compassion. Recent comments by South Carolina Lieutenant Governor Andre Bauer likened government welfare for the poor to feeding stray animals. I presume that the Lt. Gov didn't think through the logical progression of that train of thought, which is the suggestion that poor people should be left to starve, turn feral, or be euthenized.
So if you're like me and wondered why Governor Mark Sanford wasn't immdiately removed from office after betraying his deep conservative values by spending tax dollars to fund personal international travel, the answer is simple. All he wanted to do was fornicate with an Argentine on the sly. Who among us can cast the first stone on that one?
