Disappointment – Take 2: The Sanford Edition

I was shocked, saddened, and disgusted once again to hear of South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s admission that he is the latest politician to cheat on his wife.

Of course, there has been intense media scrutiny on this situation over the last several days given that his staff had no clue where he was. I suspected there was a problem when his wife told the media that she was also unaware of his whereabouts. That’s just not normal.

Then he was hiking the Appalachian Trail. Then he came back and told the press that he had changed his plans last minute and gone to Argentina.

“I wanted to do something exotic,” Sanford told The State.

My first gut reaction to reading that was, “Uh huh, what’s her name?”

And now, the emails have come out that he’s sent to her.

“Two, mutual feelings …. 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 …”


To make matters worse, if that’s possible, is the fact that his wife found out about this affair five months ago, and he still didn’t cut it off.

He’s lucky his wife didn’t “cut it off” for him.
