Maher: Sanford Had ‘International F*ck Fiestas’ And Got Redemption, So Why Not Weiner For D*ck Pics?



VIDEO here: http://www.mediaite.com/tv/maher-sanford-had-international-fck-fiestas-and-got-redemption-so-why-not-weiner-for-dick-pics/


Bill Maher ended his show tonight bringing up the double standard of giving politicians caught up in sex scandals a second chance. New Yorkers are still very wary of Anthony Weiner, even as he plans a run for governor in New York, while Appalachian trail-hiker Mark Sanford gained not only forgiveness, but the Republican nomination for a seat in Congress. Maher surmised that the only reason Sanford gets redemption but Weiner doesn’t is because Sanford can say God forgave him, but Weiner doesn’t have that luxury.

1. While I agree there is a double standard

For Dems and Reps when it comes to forgiveness for, shall we say, personal failings, I have to is ask:

Is it really redemption in Sanford's case if he ends up getting his arse handed to him by voters and loses to Elizabeth Colbert-Busch? Yeah, he won the primary, but still...

2. Maher can be such a fool.

 

The GOP has not only forgiven Weiner, they're praying he runs for mayor.

3. Maher is wrong

 

Sanford's so called 'redemption' means nothing - He is still the amoral asshole he was when he left office ....

Democrats do not need to match republicans; asshole for asshole ...

Weiner should go away .... become a lobbyist or sumfin ...

4. If men could not have positions of authority (yes I said that) due to sexual indiscretions,

a very high portion of the CEOs of our major corporations would have to quit.

The double standard is not just between Republicans and Democrats but between men in government and men in big business. Bunch of hypocrites, our CEOs.

7. What rdemption did that asshat Mark Sanford get? He's going to give up a GOP seat...

to a Democrat, and the RNC quit giving him money over a week ago giving up any chance of Sanford winning - he's more than 9 points in back.
