It looks like we'll still have Mark Sanford to kick around

House lawmakers Wednesday rejected a measure to impeach Gov. Mark Sanford, making it unlikely the governor will be removed from office.

However, the special House impeachment panel approved an official rebuke -- or censure -- of Sanford for bringing "ridicule, dishonor, disgrace and shame" on the state, its citizens and the governor's office.

Funny (sad?), isn't it, that "ridicule, dishonor, disgrace and shame" do not amount to impeachability? Have we just come to expect all that from our elected officials?
