Or he was missing.
'Case you hadn't heard, the retarded Governor of South Carolina, Mark Sanford (R - with former Presidential aspirations), went unexpectedly bye-bye for a while. For most of a week in fact. Without telling his wife, his aides, his Lt. Governor or anyone in the state of South Carolina where he was going.
So, when his wife naturally started to worry and went public about this, after he'd been gone for days already, his aides put together the story that he was just out for a hike...on the Appalachian Trial. But he wasn't. They lied. They didn't know where he was and they couldn't or wouldn't admit it. (That's the Republican version of "accountability" at work, kids).
Real story? Gosh, but it seems that Governor "I Don't Want No Stinkin' Obama Money 'Cuz I Wanna Run for President Agin' Him!" Sanford was actually off with his mistress in Argentina. Crying, he says. Yeah, crying.
As a follow-up to yesterday's post, this couldn't be more apropos. I wrote the snarky little piece below because I was pissed not at Sen. Ensign's affair with a married woman but because I was pissed about the gushing Return of the Prodigal Philandering Son Welcome given him by his GOP buddies in the Senate.
Remember, It's OK If You're a Republican - So Long As You Apologize Afterwards (and Preferably Mention God and/or Jesus While Doing So). That's IOKIYAR-SLAYAAAPMGAOJWDS. I doubt that acronym is gonna catch on.
Screw the acronyms - let's just call them Republicans! No bigger insult available these days.
Governor Sandford should resign from office. Not for his affair, but for his total and complete abrogation of his elected duties as Governor of the State of South Carolina. If Illinois had such an incompetent Governor, we'd be clamoring for his head!
