Are There Any Non-adulturous Republicans?

Having lived my whole life -- until three months ago -- in North Carolina, I have a more than passing familiarity with South Carolina. It is a state that has been near the bottom of the list in education, income, and, well, a lot of things. So, it really comes as no surprise to me that, during his career-ending press conference today, Governor Mark Sanford exhibited extremely poor speaking skills.

What? You hadn't heard? The Governor was "missing" for several days last week. Turns out he was with his mistress.

On Wednesday, he admitted he had been on a private visit to Argentina because he had "wanted to do something exotic".

Now, whilst rambling on about God and family, Sanford mentioned that his staff did not lie to anyone, that they were actually told he was off hiking the Appalachian Trail. I'm not sure I believe that though. You remember that game you played as a kid where one person whispers something to the person next to them, and you go around the circle and see how the original message comes out?

In this case, the end message was "Hiking the Appalachian Trail."...

Actually, they were playing that game where each word has to start with the last letter of the previous word.

Nothing to see here, folks
