I think it's kind of crappy that their personal emails got released, but then again, this is another republican who called for Clinton's impeachment for his loose moral code. What are they putting in the water at those GOP congressional retreats?
True to form and right on schedule, Sanford pulled out the bible card this afternoon, likening himself to King David:
" I have been doing a lot of soul searching on that front. What I find interesting is the story of David, and the way in which he fell mightily, he fell in very very significant ways. But then picked up the pieces and built from there."
For you biblically ignorant, as King of Israel and Judea, one day while walking on the roof, David saw Bathsheba in the bath. He shtupped her and got her pregnant. Craftily he called Uriah, Bathsheba's hubby, back from the Russian Front so that he would sleep with his wife and everyone would think he was the proud poppa.
But Uriah wouldn't leave the battlefield. So David gave an order that Uriah should be abandoned in battle, ensuring his death. Then he married Bathsheba.
If Sanford is my buddy, I'm treading really carefully right now. This guy could go all old testament on you at any second.
