Aren't all Republican affairs 'innocent'? Like the driven snow.

Another Family Values Republican. Yee-haw!

Sanford didn't have an problems entering Clinton's 'zone of privacy'. Hey-oh!

Damn gays! Messin' up hetero marriage!

I’ve been unfaithful to my wife, Sanford admits:

"South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted to an extra-marital affair with an Argentinian woman Wednesday afternoon, at an eagerly-awaited press conference to explain his sudden disappearance last week.

Sanford also announced his resignation as chair of the Republican Governors’ Association.

“I’ve been unfaithful to my wife,” Sanford said in front of the cameras. “I developed a relastionship with … a dear, dear friend from Argentina. It began very innocently, as I suspect these things do. In the last year, it developed into something much more than that.”

“I spent the last five days of my life crying in Argentina,” Sanford said, explaining his break-up with his love interest.

As a consequence of his actions, “I hurt a lot of different folks,” Sanford said. He apologized to his family, to his staff, and to South Carolina voters, in that order.

Sanford asked the press to respect “a zone of privacy” for his family, saying that the work of rebuilding his family life is “not best dealt with through the prism of TV cameras and newspaper headlines.”"

Oh, I get it. He was only against stimulus for his state, not... ok, clear now.

The Raw Story � Sanford’s South American sojourn taxpayer-funded:

'"South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford spent more than $21,000 of taxpayers' money on international travel last year, at least part of which was spent on travel to Argentina -- where his mistress is located."

So I'm at the newsstand leaving NYC yesterday. I pick up the times and drop it on the counter. The clerk, who appeared to maybe of Indian descent picked up the cover - with a large picture of Sanford and asked, "You know who is this man?" -- Yes, I answered, the Governor of South Carolina. The clerk held the paper closer and squinted..."This man, you know why he is crying?" - Just had to shake my head and try to explain and pay and get out of the way of the next 10 people in line.

Hope you had a good time in NYC!
