It is very disheartening these days, with jobs as scarce as a hen's tooth, gas and groceries keep flucuating (usually upward, and for no good reason), and what's a person to do? Yet it seems that our elected, yeah, I said elected officials (elected by saps like us) can only fuss about being called "ma'am" instead of "senator" and sneaking off to Argentina to have an affair (I have heard of discretion, but were there honestly no mistresses in South Carolina???)
Mark Sanford, the governor of South Carolina (apparently when he feels like it) really takes the cake for unmitigated gall. At a time when the average citizen is having a hard enough time just making it to work without hitting up a loanshark for a full tank, he trapses off to Argentina to see his woman on the side. Way to rub it in, pal.
The soap opera this has touched off has gotten better by the day! Now we are supposed to believe that Sanford spent five of seven days with his mistress...crying? What can you expect from a guy who voted that former President Clinton should be impeached in the name of "moral legitimacy." Guess he figures Republicans are exempt from that need!
In a parallel story, you can pretty well guess who blew the whistle on Sen. John Ensign's (R-NV) affair. Senator, what put you in the mindset to screw a staffer then fire her husband? No seat belts or roll cage is going to protect you when karma flip over on you...
