This is a great short piece that Jon does, and it works quite well. One thing I think we have to remind ourselves of and Sanford needs to remember, is get religion out of government. We have a separation of church of state for a reason.
Yet Republicans mostly, some Democrats seem to want to constantly insert their beliefs into government. To use this analogy as a reason to stay in office is just ignorant. Sanford and the people of South Carolina need to look at what he has done.
Has he been effective as governor? Did he break the trust of the people of his state when he left them for 5 days with no one in charge and no way of getting in touch with him? His religion and his faith have nothing to do with his governing. Keep it in church and out of the office.
That's my advice to the people of South Carolina and to the Republican Party who are involved in this mess. It would be the same advice I would give to any Democratic individual in the same circumstances.
But here is Jon Stewart's take.
