In Search of Stimulus

First he was lost and now he is found. This new Mark Sanford show is better than that old Jon & Kate crap.

When the South Carolina governor went incommunicado for a seven days, his staff happily told us he was vacationing out in the wilderness... probably praying and possibly naked. If it turned out this upright Republican was a weekend nudist then the story would have been interesting enough.

Ends up the governor was in Argentina breaking up with his mistress.

His confession and tears are a little insincere. He was caught by a reporter at Hartsfield-Jackson Airport in Atlanta after changing his flight plans in order to avoid the press. If he could have gotten away with this liaison, he would have.

Hypocrisy and sex scandals are nothing new of course, but let's see how FOX News tries to spin this one:

There must be some kind of neocon defense mechanism at work here when they label an affirmed Republican adulterer as a Democrat.

Anyway, some legislators are talking about impeaching Mark Sanford. I'm hoping they do it for the right reasons -- not because of his affair, but because he shirked his duties as governor by being out of contact with his office.

And if they can't impeach the guy, well maybe Mr. Conservative can run for president in 2012?

Typical.. Faux does this often. I don't think we can call it a simple mistake anymore.

Yeah, I don't think it's a mistake now either... and I doubt we ever see them put an (R) after Barack Obama's name.
