OMG - Who Would Believe This?
If you wrote a novel with this plot your agent would send it back as "too unbelievable." You maybe could get a film maker interested. After all they come up with movies like Terminator.
Seems that rising GOP Presidential hopeful in 2012, Gov. Sanford, is not missing from a hike on the Appalachian Trail. He flew to Argentina to be with his new lover.
He has been having an extramarital affair with a "dear dear friend" in Argentina. The affair, he said, began "very innocently" but blossomed into "something much more than that."
Something much more than that is one of those phrases men use when they get caught with their pants down around their ankles. He admitted to lying to his staff and obviously lying to his wife today. He has promised to resign as chairman of the Republican Governor's Association and it does not look like Ensign, the Governor of Nevada, will be picked to fill the position.
I have just one question: Aren't the Republicans what we used to call the moral majority? Yes, they are a minority now, but I don't think the Christian Right can endorse this sort of behavior. Though frankly I have know a few Baptist ministers to screw around. And a couple leaders of the Promise Keepers in Colorado Springs have not kept promises.
My ex-husband and I used to have this catch phrase we would repeat about news like this: "What were they thinking?" Clearly he wasn't; Proving once again men, even Republican ones, can only think with one head at a time.
Sorry, adult content. But why do they call it adult when they are obviously acting like spoiled little boys?
