In case you haven’t heard, Gov. Mark Sanford of South Carolina finally came back. Also, we correctly predicted that yes, there WAS an Argentinian mistress in this story. McClatchey Newspapers say they knew about the story. But we were still right before anybody publically said it. Thank you very much.
Sanford disappears and says he’s gone “hiking on the Applachian Trail.”
His staff and others then say we think he’s there. Now we don’t know.
No one else (including his wife) knows.
Then we find out that he’s in Argentina. To try and be a step ahead, he comes back to the States via Atlanta. He’s met by a reporter and ends the conversation by saying, “who was I with? What do you think”? Maybe not the smartest move when you’re trying to avoid these people?
Then today, he says he’s had an affair with a woman (“a close personal friend”) in Argentina. The affair has been going on since last year. Two weeks ago, he and his wife agreed to a trail seperation.
Now, time for more predictions.
Will he resign? We say no for this reason. The rampant neocon hypocracy continues. Sanford, Larry Craig, Gengrich. The list goes on almost forever. The boring neocon response? Well, what about Clinton? What about David Patterson? We say, what about them? At least they’re weren’t running around saying we’re holier than thou (we’re morally superior to the Democrats). It’s funny on the cable news channels how the Great Debate turns out to be a joke. Because what do the neocons do? They can’t say, yeah this is great. So they dodge the issue. We support our party values. Oh really? Doesn’t look like it. Yet you keep saying you’re better than those damn “Socialist” Democrats. You’re against gay marriage. How does Larry Craig (who was convicted of gay solicitation, which IS a crime, by the way) feel about that? Naturally, they’re blissfully ignorant of the facts and will play along with these pointless “debates.”
He’ll continue to fight it out as long as he can. But we say eventually he’ll resign before the end of his current (and last) term. They’ll file for divorce. And sombody will write a tell-all book about it. Then get ready for the book tour, the TV mini-series option, the feature film option, Broadway play. And every marketing ploy you can imagine.
Now back to reality. Does anybody realize that we’re at war in Iraq?
