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.
