Thanks, SC

Well, the state of South Carolina has certainly provided us with some amusement of late. Gov. Mark Sanford was supposedly off hiking on the Appalachian Trail, and then he wasn't; he was off in Buenos Aires instead. Tha's cool – Buenos Aires has many attractive things, including for Sanford a little trick. Remember Fanne Foxe, the Argentine Firecracker, who put pore ol Wilbur Mills into the soup? You remember the NYTimes financial writer with the Argentine wife whose mad-dog spending habits put him into the soup a few weeks back? Guess Sanford found one of those chicks. Anyhow, we are all grateful for Rs displaying D tendencies in their screw-ups. It's quite refreshing.
Sanford, 49, spoke at a news conference today in Columbia after returning from a seven-day disappearance from the state. He said he has been involved with a person from Argentina.

Despite the nice weasel of 'a person from Argentina,' it was apparently a girl he was fooling around with, so, improving in a way the reputation of R politicians.
And then there's Sen Lindsey Graham, R-SC, who comes over as remarkably pissybitchy in his TV appearances. So, from a 2007 article in the Charleston City Paper, "Is Lindsey Graham gay?
At 52, the life-long bachelor has been fodder for such rumors for years …" Read it all here. Gotta tickle to find mean R pols who swing from the other side of the plate.
