Democratic Congressional candidate Elizabeth Colbert Busch lost to Republican Mark Sanford in Tuesday night’s special election for South Carolina’s First District, an election that drew national attention.

Even with the endorsement of younger brother Stephen Colbert, Colbert Busch didn’t come close to beating the former Palmetto State governor who was censured by the state legislature after it turned out he had been trysting with his Argentinian lover and using public funds to pay for the romance.

The result of Tuesday night’s election raises the question, if Colbert Busch can’t beat a guy who has completely disgraced his party by lying about a foreign lover…whom can she beat?

The answers may surprise you.
