Your Moment of Hoekstra

alg_mark_sanfordMark Sanford (R-SC):

A guy from the northeast did a study on generational accounting. Generational accounting says what is the imputed tax for a young person born in America today? And remarkably, that number is 82,which at all ain’t that far from a thing called slavery.

Shorter Mark Sanford: When the South Carolina Supreme Court made me take the stimulus funds, I knew what it felt like to be torn from my family, sold into slavery, and beaten within an inch of my life.

Sanford Predict Stimulus Will Result in a ‘Thing Called Slavery’ [Think Progress]

Isn’t South Carolina where they still fly the Ku Klux Klan Confederate flag over the statehouse? Or is it the state that still has the stars and bars in the state flag?

Did y’all know Sanford’s been missing for four days?

Obviously, they’ll find him in a sling in the nearest bath house surrounded by empty meth vials with his ass in the air.

Stop on by and say hi, y’all!

@Original Andrew: They found him. I love that his wife told the AP she didn’t know where he was…and wasn’t concerned.

@SanFranLefty: Nah, they cut that out a while back. SC’s state flag is a pleasing blue with a palmetto and a Mooslem crescent.

You’re probably thinking of Mississippi’s flag.

@SanFranLefty: @finette: Yes, the battle flag is now flying at the Confederate monument that is a good 200 or so feet from the Capitol. Controversy over, people–move along, nothing to see!
The stars marking the spots where Union shells hit the SC capitol building are still there, as far as I know. Don’t know if the KA frat at USC still marches to the statehouse to re-enact the secession as part of their Old South Ball festivities, but I wouldn’t be at all surprised.


We all know what “it’s not uncommon for him to go out of pocket for a few days at a time to clear his head” is code for: Repressed Republican power-bottom closet-case snaps his leash and seeks Tom of Finland-inspired daddy bear for hawt, sweaty, M on M action. Also known to Lindsey Graham’s staff as his “me time.”

I thought the answer was 42. Stupid Douglas Adams.

TJ/ I guess it was bound to happen. One of my exmo friends died of leukemia last week. I just found out. This is Denise Stein

@Original Andrew: and that he needed time apart from his children to write something said his wife.

What, he needed time to write that idiotic statement?

@JNOV: Sad

Does anyone know if any DC stinquers take the metro Red line? Just heard about the crash and trying to check in with DC friends.

@Mistress Cynica: A friend of mine does and is now walking home.

@Mistress Cynica: If Mellbell is still living at the same place she was when HF and I were in DC, she shouldn’t be on the Red Line on that stretch. Two friends who live in Takoma Park and ride that stretch every day have now checked in on FB, much to everyone’s relief. The location is right by the elementary school that another friend’s daughter attends.

@JNOV: So sorry to hear, my dear.

@Mistress Cynica: Some friends and family do, but mostly on the other end of the line, and so far everyone I know is accounted for. I just keep thinking how much worse it would be if some trains had piled up in a tunnel, versus above ground where the EMTs can actually get at them.

@mellbell: I agree about the tunnel. Not knowing that part of the line, I wasn’t sure if it was above or below until I saw pictures. And looking at the pictures, I can’t believe anyone in that first car survived.
