Democracy In America

Well! South Carolina’s in the news again. The story this evening is that the swinish philanderer Mark Sanford has defeated the liberal candidate, Elizabeth Colbert Busch, for the vacant House seat left open by Rep. Tim Scott’s ascent to the Senate (which in turn followed Jim DeMint’s abdication of his Senate seat in order to take over the presidency of the Heritage Society).

Two things are clear. One is that if the Democrats couldn’t even manage to beat the odious Sanford there is reason for us conservatives to be guardedly optimistic about 2014. The other is that, given how quickly the disgraced former governor has risen from the dead, we all have good reason to fear an impending zombie apocalypse.

My darkest fear, though, in light of this surprising result, can be summed up in three terrifying words:

Mayor Anthony Weiner.

    “…there is reason for us conservatives to be guardedly optimistic about 2104.”

    Taking the long view, I see.
