Somebody Needs to Tell Mark Sanford to Shut the Hell Up

I read an article yesterday morning about Sanford’s spiritual mentor, Warren “Cubby” Culbertson, who gave an interview to the AP about the whole Sanford debacle.

He was very forthcoming, but when the reporter asked if he’d ever met Sanford’s mistress, he had no comment. Which means the answer to that question is a definite yes.

My first thought was, under what possible circumstanced would that happen?

Then another article filled in the gaps. It seems that when his wife discovered a letter he had written to his mistress five months ago, Sanford took his buddy Cubby with him as a chaperone to New York so that he could break up with the mistress. Apparently, they all went to church together and then had dinner together… weird.

But as we all know, Sandford didn’t really cut it off then. He not only continued to lie to his wife, he lied to Cubby, too, which is why Cubby got a personal apology during the infamous press conference.

So, back to Sanford. It’s now also come out that he lied during his infamous press conference about how often he met up with his mistress. So, if he was lying to us about that during his “apology,” why should I believe that he’s really sorry? Well, I don’t actually believe that.

Why don’t I believe that? Um, maybe because he told the AP during a two day interview that “he would die ‘knowing that I had met my soul mate.’”

He also admitted, “There were a handful of instances wherein I crossed the lines I shouldn’t have crossed as a married man [with other women besides the mistress], but never crossed the ultimate line.” Uh, huh.

Stanford also admitted that his relations with his mistress “was a whole lot more than a simple affair, this was a love story. A forbidden one, a tragic one, but a love story at the end of the day.”

Here’s where that little tip about shutting the hell up comes into play.

You’ve already hurt your wife tremendously. Now you’re going to tell the world that the other woman is your soul mate and the subject of a great love story? Twist the knife a little more why don’t you?

What a self-centered, narcissistic, jerk-off.

The guy has no future in politics, not just because he’s a low-life scumbag, but because he’s a moron about the fact that he’s a low-life scumbag, and he just can’t stop telling the world about what a low-life scumbag he is.
