BENNETT: SANFORD NEEDS TO STOP ‘EMBARRASSING HIMSELF’
(CNN) – Mark Sanford is “embarrassing himself” and needs to resign as governor of South Carolina, conservative talk radio host and CNN contributor Bill Bennett said Thursday on CNN’s American Morning.
Bennett, the latest high profile conservative to call for Sanford’s ouster, said it’s time for the onetime Republican rising star to ditch politics and focus solely on getting his life back in order.
“I know Mark Sanford. I know him quite well,” Bennett said. “He needs to get his life back in order, his marriage back in order. He is embarrassing himself.””
Sanford needs to “stop embarrassing himself.” Really? Really? Is THAT what he needs to do, Bill Bennett?
I guess when you’re talking about embarrassment, it’s probably always better to stick with the experts. I mean, who better to give moralizing lectures on who’s an embarrassment and who isn’t, than a guy who LITERALLY wrote a book called: “The Book of Virtues” at roughly the same time period that he was losing MILLIONS OF DOLLARS gambling? And this has got to be money shot:
“We have other people,” he said. “We have other people who are not only fiscally interesting and sound but also can keep their lives together.”
People who can “keep their lives together” eh? People who can keep their lives together? Would part of that whole “keeping your life together” process include shitting out millions of dollars at the craps table?
Bill Bennett . . . shut the fuck up. It ain’t up to YOU to decide who’s “got their life together” and who hasn’t, you moralizing, self-righteous hypocrite.
