Hey Walter, did you happen to be a governor too? Cause you nailed what it means to be a politician!
Mark Sanford cheats on his wife with an Argentinian woman pretending, on FATHER'S DAY weekend mind you, to go hiking in the Appalachian Mountains. First of all, who in their right mind hikes in the Appalachians? It's full of Hill Folk that rival NYC's Mole People as the most frightening man-beast legends to ever enter our collective nightmares. Secondly, when did becoming Governor get so hot? McGreevey, Spitzer, and now Sanford.
If you thought it was confined to just Governors think again! David Vitter, Mark Foley, Larry Criag, Ed Schrock, Jack Ryan, Antonio Villaraigosa, Gavin Newsom, Marc Dann, Vito Fossella, Kwame Kilpatrick, John Edwards, Jim Gibbons, and most recently John Ensign have all had their share of disgrace, many of whom were forced to resign. That's a huge list... and that's only since 2004!
Who know becoming a civil servant would rival priesthood for sex scandal?
Governor Mark Sanford's first explanation of why he went missing for 5 days without telling anyone raised a few eyebrows. He broke a vase in the living room and had just seen a Southwest commercial asking him "Wanna get away?"
There had been anticipation Mark Sanford would run for President in 2012. When asked about this Sanford replied, "Oops."
Mark should have learned from history: First become President THEN have the affair. Did you learn nothing from Clinton?
Two words Gov. Sanford should have remembered before having an affair: John Edwards. On the plus side, at least Mark's wife did not have cancer at the time of the affair.
