"Now They See Me, Now They Don't. I've Come & Gone"

Good ol' South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford. Caught with his pants down. In Argentina.

And even though his pants were down and we all could see that his package looks like a golf pencil hanging between two Planters peanuts, he has the balls to act surprised when we wonder where the fuck he was for 5 days and why he wasn't at work.

But that's Sanford. He's a staunch conservative who opposes gay civil unions, meaning he's not JUST opposed to gay marriage, but civil unions, too.

As a Senator in the 90's, he voted AGAINST a bill that preserved sites linked to the Underground Railroad.

And I found this on Pandagon...

"When South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford learned that his state was being advertised as a gay tourism destination, he ordered a Cabinet-level department head 'to do the right thing personnel-wise or process-wise to ensure this does not happen again'"

I think Jon Stewart said it best last night on The Daily Show when he described Governor Sanford as...
"Just another politician with a conservative mind and a liberal penis."

Yes, this is my governor. I even voted for him. This affair does not surprise me, because he is just a human bean. Human beans do this stuff sometimes. What pisses me off is the hypocrisy of it all.

Maybe this will be his turning point, and he'll get to the center of who he is and become real and reasonable. Or not.

As the wabbit used to say, What a maroon. He should be stood up in a public place and forced to re-read the words he used against President Clinton during his impeachment...

Ironic that this tool who railed against ad outreach to gay tourists got done in by some sexual tourism of his own. Mr Family Values ditched his kids (on Father's Day, no less) for a transcontinental booty call with some Argentine Vagine. What a shit head.

All we can hope for is that one of his kids turns out to be ragingly gay.
If there were a god, I'd pray for that.

I can't stand his politics, but I feel a little sorry for him right now. I think he really believes he's in love, not just banging some chick for fun.

Living in SC is such a joy.

"Just another politician with a conservative mind and a liberal penis."

Perfect summary.

Your observation is beautifully and succintly put. I think of political life like "Fast Times at Ridgemont High." Every politician thinks he's Mr. Hand, the Ray-Walston conservative teacher. Their member, on the other hand, wants to be Jeff Spicoli, the Sean-Penn slacker.

I like Philip's philosophy. We need another Phyllis Schlafly moment right now in our history...
