Don’t cry for me South Carolina

Well, if nothing else they know what they’re getting.
Mark Sanford has won the South Carolina special election in a competitive race for what in normal circumstances is a safe Republican seat.
The former governor beat Democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, the sister of comedian Stephen Colbert Busch, for the state’s 1st congressional district.
The AP called the race for Sanford, with the Republican leading Colbert Busch 54 percent 46 percent.
For those of you who have been hiding out in the Appalachian Mountains the last few years, Sanford is the former governor of South Carolina who was forced from office when it was discovered he was skipping off to South America to see his girlfriend.
The reluctant Republican support he was getting in his comeback bid disappeared after it was discovered Sanford was charged with trespassing at his ex-wife’s home. However, the very Republican district carried him through against his Hollywood-by-proxy opponent.
By coincidence or fate, today is also the late Eva Peron’s birthday. She would have been 94. Funny how Hollywood likes dead fascists.
Anyway, here’s video taken from the Sanford victory party. I think.
