I have close ties with the state of South Carolina. It's the home state of my parents and the Myrtle Beach area is practically a second home for me. So needless to say I absolutely can't stop watching the insanity going on with the SC gov right now. It's better than the movies, Mamas!!
First, he disappears for a week. Lies about where he is (oh, I'm just hiking. Yeah, that's it. Hiking right up here on the Appalachian Trail!). Then gets caught getting off a plane from South America (Doh!). Last week he held a far too long and kinda creepy news conference detailing his affair with an Argentinian woman, tan lines and all. Now, he's mooning like some lovesick puppy about how his mistress is really his soul mate, but he's going to try to fall back in love with his wife.
Is he dropping acid? Seriously. He's going to "try to fall back in love with her?" Rrriiight. At this point, his wife is probably like, "Uhh, no thanks. You can pretty much just keep it moving." Jenny Sanford is no dummy. FINALLY ... a political wife who's dealing with the embarrassment of a cheating husband with strength and a semblance of dignity instead of being given the standard 2 shots of Jack Daniels and a Valium so she can endure being propped up by her dog of a hubby's side while he spills his cheating guts to the media. AND she let it be known that her main priority was her kids, not her husband's career.
I DO like her! In my mind's eye, I can truly see her smacking him upside his head whenever he opens his mouth and lets dumb shit roll out.
What the hell is going on with these governors? Last year my state's former Governor Spitzer got busted with hookers. This year, my adopted state's governor decides to turn into the roving Romeo. Hmmm. Maybe it's me?
