    Really McCain and Sanford do have a lot in common. They both cheated on their wives. McCain went so far as to divorce his first wife in time of her desperate health needs for a much younger woman with a ton of money.

    Why yes, they are part of the of The Three Amigos- along with Senator John ‘Mr. Teresa Heinz’ Kerry. They are a truly bi-partisan gang.

    Isn’t this the same ex governor who when married took trips to Argentina on the taxpayers’ dime to snuggle with his girlfriend?

    I always thought of flip flopper Kerry and McLame as Manchurian candidates.
