Sanford Implodes

Yeah, it looks like the governor was having a fling. If you've been paying attention to the news lately, you know that Governor Mark Sanford left town over the weekend. His wife didn't know where he was and aides said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. Inventive excuse, that one.

Naah, he's got a girlfriend. In Argentina. Seriously.
South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford acknowledged Wednesday that he was carrying on an affair with a woman in Argentina when he disappeared from his office last week, only to resurface this morning.
I've got to give the governor props for this indiscretion. Not that I agree with it. No, it was tacky and wrong.

But Argentina? Dude! If someone would have told me that he was in Paris, or Rome, I'd have immediately thought about the Paris in Texas or the Rome in Georgia. But Argentina? That takes some serious planning. As wrong as it was, she must've had something going on to make a guy get in an airplane and fly to South America for a little hoochy-coochy.

Our own governor Edwin Edwards had a reputation as a lady's man. Our own Governor Earl Long managed a notorious affair with Blaze Starr. Then there was Bill Clinton, of course, who managed to get impeached over lying about an affair.

Of course, he can kiss his political aspirations goodbye. He's done as a politician.

I wonder if he ran on a family values ticket?

Argentina, huh? Dude!

He's a good example of what happens when a man's brain goes to his testicles.
