Drama Outpaces Discussion of Issues in South Carolina

The New York Times observes that almost no issues are being discussed in the special election between Mark Sanford (R) and Elizabeth Colbert Busch (D) in South Carolina's 1st congressional district.

"One has to scratch hard to get through the divorces and lovers, the tearful odes to Mama, the exploitation of celebrity and the Sharks-versus-Jets nature of the political parties to find out what the candidates propose to do if they win a special election on May 7 to succeed Representative Tim Scott, a Republican who was appointed to the Senate."
