Stupid Quote of the Week

From Rush Limburger (of course), who seeks to blame South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s extramarital affair with an Argentine woman on President Obama:
The best way to put it: He’s trying to kill spirit. All this hope and change, he’s trying to kill it … This Sanford business, I gotta tell you, one of the first thoughts that crossed my mind … What he did defies logic. This is more than being 180 degrees out of phase because of lust or love … This is almost like, “I don’t give a damn, the country’s going to Hell in a handbasket, I just want out of here.” He had just tried to fight the stimulus money coming to South Carolina. He didn’t want any part of it; he lost the battle. He said, “What the hell. I mean, the federal government’s taking over--what the hell, I want to enjoy life.”
Sheer lunacy. But what do you expect? (Hat tip to Steve Benen.)
