South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford released another statement today, this time blaming her husband’s affair on the declining moral values in America.
I really shouldn’t be surprised by this–in fact, I should be shocked that it’s taken so long for some conservative asshat to actually say it. I really have no words, the first line of the article says it all. That, and the fact that Rush Limbaugh rushed to add his two cents,
“It’s finally happened,” said Rush Limbaugh, conservative radio personality. “America, I’ve been warning you for years that gay marriage would destroy the American family and look… there they are, a husband, wife, and four children — destroyed. When is this going to stop America? When will the liberals be satisfied? When all the marriages break up? This wasn’t Mark Sanford’s fault, this was Ted Kennedy’s fault. Sanford didn’t cheapen the value of marriage, he was victimized by the cheapening of marriage.”
So marriage wasn’t cheap before states began allowing same-sex couples to legally marry? Maybe they don’t know any divorced people…
