Gov. Mark Sanford admitted today that his secret trip to Argentina over Father's Day weekend was to visit a woman he is having an affair with.But, but, but I thought he was hiking the Appalachian Trail!
"I have developed a relationship with what started as a dear dear friend from Argentina. It began very innocently as I expect many of these things do, just casual email back and forth," Sanford said. "But here recently this last year developed into something much more."Ah, yes, I know how he feels. For months I have been having casual back and forth emails with a very dear friend of mine from Nigeria. He promises to get me lots of money. Oh sure, our relationship is innocent now but I can see it developing into something much more.
Sanford said his wife has known about the affair and they have been working through it for the past five months.Yes, and she continues to "work through it" by alerting the press to your "mysterious disappearance."
Way to go, Marky Mark.
He didn't need to clear his head, he needed to clear his pipes.
