One of the purposes of this blog is to expose those who abuse the Holocaust and anti-Semitism for cheap political gain. To that, I’d now like to add a new campaign against those who exploit the Hebrew Bible for the purpose of making moronic analogies to their own personal peccadilloes and predilections.
Sanford then compared himself to the Bible’s David, who slept with another man’s wife, had him killed and then married the woman.
“He fell mighily. He fell in very significant ways but was able to pick up the pieces,” Sanford said.
About the only thing you can say on behalf of Sanford is that his inamorata was already divorced, so luckily there was no competing husband for him to kill off. Imagine if there were??!
But does this King David analogy mean that after Sanford resigns, we can expect to see him reborn and newly remarried to his Argentine Spitfire and living somewhere out on the Pampas? Maybe he can earn his living organizing Argentine trade missions for U.S. state governments. Though I think he should eliminate the R&R portion of those junkets.
