Last night I made a bet with the wife that South Carolina governor Sanford was off visiting his gay lover out in Utah.
I was wrong.
Turns out he was out of country slappin' his pasty conservative thighs against some Argentinian boo-tay! 2012 isn't the end of the world, just any hope you might have had at running the big show, Mark.
Read all about it here.
My favorite part:
ATLANTA (Reuters) - South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford tearfully admitted on Wednesday he had been unfaithful to his wife, likely ending any chance he might be a Republican contender for the U.S. presidency in 2012.
Sanford resigned as chairman of the Republican Governors' Association and was replaced by Mississippi Governor Haley Barbour, another possible 2012 candidate.
"Any aspirations for 2012, if he had any, are certainly out of the question," said Robert Oldendick, a political scientist at the University of South Carolina.
Sanford's confession at a tumultuous news conference ended days of speculation over his whereabouts. After he disappeared last week, his staff first said he was hiking on the Appalachian Trail. It later emerged he had traveled to Argentina to be with his lover, leaving his family over Father's Day weekend.
"I spent the last five days of my life crying in Argentina," he said.
You are going to be crying over the death of your career and the end of your family as you know it for a lot longer than that. Fucking douchebag had nothing but invective for Craigslist prostitution. Mark Sanford should have had more sympathy for his fellow whores.
