I've always admired South Carolina's Governor Mark Sanford. He is not Mr. Charismatic on television, but he is probably one of the most principled Republicans out there today. He is what the Republican Party brand should be. He is the true "Maverick" swimming against the rancid tide of big government.
The Democratic National Committee is playing politics and attacking Sanford for his principled stand on the highly political stimulus bill. Below is the YouTube video (link):
Is Rick next up? Or do they not care about Rick, because he's not as likely to run for President as Sanford. Thoughts? Seems like the Texas market is a bit pricey compared to South Carolina, so it would be a surprise if they went after Rick, but if the DNC has any principles, we'd be seeing these ads in our TV markets starting next week.
What is it about attack ads that make you just emotionally rally around your guy? That's my gut feeling right now with Sanford.
