SC Gov Completely Out Of Touch

SC Governor, and national buffoon, Mark Sanford - who was determined to refuse to accept Federal Stimulus money previously - deserted his office last weekend, to take some personal time to reflect while hiking the Appalachian Trail in Northern Georgia. No calls to his wife (he has 4 kids, and it was Father's Day weekend), to his staff, or to the head of the SC National Guard or State Police, who both report to him, since he's the governor after all.

Now, I can comment on Sanford, because I voted against him in 2002 when I lived in SC, and lived there for 16 years (11 of which were before he was 'guv-nah' and his regime took power). He's a wealthy real estate broker from an affluent barrier island who is convinced that his state, which has consistently ranked last or next to last in national education rankings, infant survivability rates, high school graduation rates, literacy rates, and first or 2nd in unemployment, numbers of mobile homes per-capita, belief in quick creationism and in support of the marketing strategy known as "Intelligent Design" as well as proclivity to secede from the Union.

This joker wants to run for President in 2012. Oh please oh please run! That would be awesome! Perhaps you could go hiking in Northern VA and not tell your secret service detail, or NORAD, or Homeland Security where you're going then too Jeff! We all know you need your personal time of reflection, and you told Colbert how hard it was to "get away from the office" in his interview with you. What a maroon! Not able to effectively govern SC, not ready for a national office - the epitome of an incapable, minimalist, hypocritical, State's rights, white gentry land owner, Old South politician.


  1. Oh Man! This just gets better and better everyday! So now he says he was in Argentina, driving "along the coast" - LMAO!

  2. My favorite part is that he chose Buenos Aires because he needed to go "somewhere exotic." I can't wait to see what Jon Stewart does with this tonight!

  3. He was actually Not "out of touch", but "touching a whole lot" in South America with his mistress . What a freakin moron and hypocrite! Awesome family values, head of the Republican Governor's association. You, and Newt, and Ensign, and ... I could go on and on for days, but that's a waste of time.

  4. The icing on the cake... perhaps the best part... IMHO... is this "C Street Group" - a "Christian Bible Study", of which both Gov. Sanford and Sen. John Ensign are active members. Rough week for the C St. Group, huh? So... do they have Bible study meetings at strip clubs or what? Do they lace the water with Viagra?


    Oh, and my word verification is "aburtion" - lol!

  5. Dont cry for me, Argentina!


    "I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night's light..."

    Sorry, but my schadenfreude meter is hitting at about 9 right now - lol.

  6. And wait until South Carolina finds out (for sure finally) that Sen. Lindsey Graham is a flamer and buys mint 1994 Mustang GT's for his little boy toys. C Street material fur sure.

  7. I don't really care that he had an affair - if he can't keep it in his pants, that's his business. What does GET me is 1) his abandoning his post, shirking his responsibilities as he indulges in his proclivities and 2) his holier-than-thou campaign ads from 2002 where he's going to restore integrity, be a man of his word, a good family man, and be someone you can trust. Mark McKinnon was on Maddow last night, and as W's previous media adviser he said (after seeing the 2002 ad replayed) "Sanford has to resign". It's MASSIVE hypocrisy, and he's completely lost the trust of the State of South Carolina.

    TBD on Lindey... I'm amazed the log cabin Republicans have not yet outted him. Il faut voir...

  8. As Jon Stewart said succinctly yesterday "Oh, OK, he's just another Conservative Politician with a Liberal Penis".

  9. And my verification word is trigr...Palin must be spying on us via Captcha!

    I wish this guy had waited a bit to get caught. It would've been the motherload of hypocrisy if he had spirited his Argentinian mistress into the US illegally. Two birds with one stone anyone?
