Well there goes another potential GOP presidential candidate. After confessing in prime time to having an affair in Argentina -- instead of hiking on the Appalachian trial -- things can only get worse for South Carolina's Governor Mark Sanford.
Politico reports that Sanford took at least three taxpayer funded trips to Argentina.
And did you see the 2 laughing women standing behind Sanford during his press conference? Maybe that will teach somebody about the wisdom of putting women as props behind cheating men. I guess they couldn't get Sanford's wife to stand behind him so they ordered some state employees to stand in for her. Sanford was invoking God and sobbing with humiliation and confessing his "sin" against the sanctimony of marriage while the 2 young women stole the show by smirking and texting to goddess-knows-who.
Mark Sanford should quit his day job and go into the country music writing business. Between his heady line about "crying in Argentina" and e-mails to his lover about "magnificent gentle kisses," the homophobic governor may have talent.
Already Governor Sanford's love letters or love e-mails to his lover in Argentina have been published in his local newspaper. The paper has been sitting on them since December:
E-mail from Gov. Mark Sanford to Maria in Argentina -- You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light - but hey, that would be going into sexual details ...
I wish we didn't care to know about the private sex lives of politicos. And I wish Mark Sanford wasn't a sanctimonious homophobe who voted to impeach Bill Clinton. It's hard to disagree with Michelle Malkin: I mean What kind of man leaves his wife and kids alone on Fathers' Day so that he can rendezvous with his lover in Argentina? It's too bad Sanford's wife and kids have to pay for his mistakes. At least his wife doesn't have cancer.
