Sweet jebus I love Mark Sanford

He fears we may be headed to a "savior-based" economy:

“We’re moving precipitously close to what I would call a savior-based economy,” Sanford also said Sunday on CNN’s State of the Union.

The South Carolina Republican said such an economy is “what you see in Russia or Venezuela or Zimbabwe or places like that where it matters not how good your product is to the consumer but what your political connection is to those in power.”

“That is quite different than a market-based economy where some rise and some fall but there’s a consequence to making a stupid decision,” Sanford said after pointing to the powers granted to the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve to help deal with the current economic crisis.

Reached for comment, DNC Chairman Gov. Tim Kaine said "Ummm, that's 'Messiah-based economy' to you, you racist bastard."
