The Continuing Saga of Sparky Marky Mark

Just days ago on As the World Turns Meet the Press, Lindseypoo Graham had this to say about Governor Sparky Marky Mark Sanford and “that whole sparking thing“:

I think if Mark can reconcile with Jenny, and that’s not going to be easy, that he can finish his last 18 months. He’s had a good reform agenda. And I do believe that if, if he can reconcile with his family and if he’s willing to try, that the people of South Carolina would be willing to give him a second chance.

The Bucks Start Here

May 27 (Bloomberg) — John McCain’s challenge in winning the presidency isn’t unique. George H.W. Bush in 1988 and Al Gore in 2000 also struggled to chisel an identity separate from a two- term incumbent president of their party.

Bush’s rating is 28 percent and the leading House Republican political analyst, Virginia Representative Tom Davis, said the president is “absolutely radioactive” for party candidates, including McCain, the presumptive presidential nominee.

So why is the Arizona senator going to appear with Bush in Phoenix tonight for a closed-door fundraiser? McCain, whose fundraising totals are dwarfed by those of Democratic candidate Barack Obama, needs Bush to bring in money and signal to conservative Republicans that he can be trusted.

Boehner Rubs His Crystal Balls

From The Hill:

House Minority Leader John Boehner (R-Ohio) is backing off his bold prediction that Republicans will gain seats this November.

A confident Boehner told reporters in April that once voters heard the Republican message, the GOP would put on a strong showing in the fall.

“I think we are going to gain seats this year. Period,” he said at the time.

Six weeks and three special-election losses later, a spokesman for Boehner attempted to tamp down expectations.
