Further down the ol’ trail

It seems several years ago but it was a mere 18 months past that Mark Sanford of South Carolina turned the Appalachian Trail into the world’s funniest metaphor. Well as hard as it is to believe, Sanford is still Governor of South Carolina and will be for a couple more days. Yet, like David Vitter and John Ensign as a Republican it’s all good:

He will be replaced by his chosen successor. Tea party supporters across the country have taken up his messages about fiscal responsibility. Friends say his mid-life crisis is over.

Just in time for the book advance.

I tell ya’ if the late great Democrat Edmund Muskie was alive he’d be crying and being disqualified from office over it — just like John Boehner.

In 1949, I decided to wrestle professionally, starting my career in Texas. In my debut, I defeated Abe Kashey, with former World Heavyweight boxing Champion Jack Dempsey as the referee. In 1950, I captured the NWA Junior Heavyweight title. In 1953, I won the Chicago version of the NWA United States Championship. I became one of the most well-known stars in wrestling during the golden age of television, thanks to my exposure on the Dumont Network, where I wowed audiences with my technical prowess. I was rumored to be one of the highest paid wrestlers during the 1950s, reportedly earning a hundred thousand dollars a year. My specialty was "the Sleeper Hold" and the founding of modern, secular, Turkey.

Oops, sorry, that's the biography of Verne Gagne with a touch of Mustafa Kemal.

I'm just an average moron who in reality is a practicing civil rights and employment attorney in fly-over country .
