It seems the most enduring divide in American politics isn't between left and right, conservative and liberal, or Republican and Democrat, but voters who want real change and politicians who refuse to give it to them.
Mark Sanford is not that politician. As a South Carolina congressman and now governor, Sanford has had one primary guiding principle his entire political career limited government. Not just limited government rhetoric, the sort of lip service paid by milquetoast Republicans to pacify their right-leaning base, but genuine, strict, fiscal conservatism. More importantly, Sanford has the guts to back it up.
If you ever need a good illustration of just how duplicitous the GOP can be, just take notice of how frequently S.C. Republicans get angry at Sanford for daring to actually represent the limited government principles they pretend to. It's as if they're saying, "C'mon Mark, you didn't really think we meant all that conservative stuff, did ya?" Luckily, Sanford does mean it, which to some makes him dangerous.

Palin is on the 'global warming' bandwagon, btw.
I can't support Palin until she puts together a few sentences without a grammatical error and exhibits some intellectual depth - something Sanford and Romney have in abundance.
Were going down to Daniels Island to shop for houses.
Come to Lake Greenwood in SC. There's a 3700 sq ft home on big water for $505k in a golf/amenity community. Let me know if your interested!
You need to get out more, some fresh air, instead of reading left-wing weenie newspapers.
You’re dead-wrong on Palin. Go back to DU!
So I'm waiting on an apology. I'd stack my conservative credentials against yours or anyone else's on FR any day.
Don’t believe everything you hear on TV. That’s foolish.
