Southern Comfort

If there is any comfort to be taken in the defeat of Elizabeth Colbert-Busch by Mark Sanford, the disgraced ex-Governor of South Carolina, in the special Congressional election on Tuesday, it is probably to be found in the realization that Chicago is not alone in preferring party loyalty to public decency.  Sanford may have been duplicitous, adulterous, deceptive, and furtive, but he is charming and above all, a Republican.  Welcome to the U.S. Congress.
