So the “Mystery of the Missing Governor” has finally been solved. Turns out South Carolina’s Chief Exec (and former GOP 2012 Presidential contender) Mark Sanford was not “hiking” or “writing something” as the varying excuses for his whereabouts claimed, but rather was balls-deep in his Argentinian girlfriend for the past week. I must admit that it was refreshing to hear a politician confess so openly to an extramarital affair without the typical deflections and spin. It was especially inspiring to hear a Republican admit to an affair with a WOMAN!
However, our friends at Fox News seem to have been confused by the gender of Sanford’s paramour and automatically assumed he was a Democrat.
