The horizon is not so far as we can see, but as far as we can imagine


Can’t say I find this all that interesting.  Yes, he’s a hypocrite. Yes, there’s a train wreck quality to it all.  Yes, he’s hurt people in his life. But, at the end of the day, his public life is over (not because he cheated, but because he’s become a laughingstock), he’s clearly in a lot of pain, and I don’t see any real reason to kick him while he’s down.

Now booting him solidly for being the sort of Repubican bastard who wouldn’t take free federal money to help people who needed help, that’s another matter.  And in that sense, I’m not sorry he self-destructed.  The country will be just fine with one less Republican who has no empathy for other people.  But I can’t take any real pleasure in watching him, any more than I did in watching Spitzer implode.

  1. I usually am really disinterested by these stories. Sanford’s is an exception, partly because of the naked hypocrisy, and partly due to the fecklessness of disappearing for a week to have this affair. I suspect that if I were from South Carolina, I’d be calling for his impeachment right now. He certainly deserves to be called on the carpet over that.
