Rule of law and repug values

Where’s the fire? Argentina?

When a Highway Patrol trooper told a driver Tuesday that there was no good reason for him to blaze down a busy stretch of South Carolina interstate at 85 mph, he got a surprising reply: "Tell him that."
The ‘him’? Adulterous SC governor/hypocrite Mark Sanford.
The governor's driver did not get a ticket.

It's a new controversy for Sanford. And the episode will remind the public of criticism from Sanford's office in 2006 of Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer's speeding. The governor's spokesman at the time said Sanford "believe[s] very strongly that preferential treatment should never be a factor when enforcing the law."
Snort. Right.
