In a country with justice, this guy would be hard-pressed to get a good job.

Though, sadly, you are absolutely correct. Something like this is indeed a resume enhancer for a Democrat. Just look at John Edwards. (well I don’t literally mean look at the Breck girl)

Move to Massachusetts and run for the Teddy Kennedy seat. The perfect qualification (except the girl didn’t drown).

Political suicide for a Republican; resume enhancement for a Democrat.

One of the Republican primary candidates for this seat left the race and resigned his seat in the SC Legislature after being arrested for harassing his girlfriend.

Must be something in the water.

SC hasn't had their primary yet, so this just means that the other Dem gets the nomination.

This story only made local and state news. You know if it was a Republican, it would be national news.

I’d like to see a photo of the coed before rendering judgement. So far, my biggest criticism is that he was carrying only a little Kel-Tec .380.

...and unlawfully possessing a firearm,...

I object to this slander! According to the 2nd Amendment it's not possible to unlawfully possess a firearm.

Why should he withdraw? That’s just resume enhancement for a democrat. Hell, Teddy Kennedy did that and topped it off by drowning the girl! And he went on to spend another forty years in the Senate lecturing conservatives about right and wrong! Who do these voters in South Carolina think they are?

From the article:

Vick is an open supporter of the U.S. capitalist system ...

I realize this is the Daily Caller but this has got to be the strangest statement I've ever seen coming from media that is not admittedly communist.

resume enhancement for a Democrat.

Kind of what they say about Democrat politicians in Massachusetts and being found with a dead girl or a live boy.

As a Democrat in South Carolina, he has a legacy to uphold--it's the state John Jenrette (D) represented until he got caught in the ABSCAM scandal. He allegedly had sex with his then-wife on the Capitol steps.

Apparently his ex-wife is now married to an Italian prince.
