Has he tried a GPS?

Mark Sanford, the Governor of South Carolina, went missing over the weekend, just dropped out of sight for five days, no security detail with him, his wife didn't know where he was. "He was writing something and wanted some space to get away from the kids,” she told the A.P. on Monday.

(Nice for the kids to hear, by the way, that their father didn't want to be near them on, um, Father's Day.)

Anyway, when the press started asking where he was, his staff said he was tired after a long legislative session, and was "hiking the Appalachian trail."

Uh huh.

Ooops, well now it turns out, apparently he was in Argentina on a personal trip, driving along the coastline there.

That's a hell of a discrepancy. And from what I understand, the coastline of Argentina is not that accessible.

Hmm, something fishy going on here, wouldn't you say?

Oh, and do I even need to note, this guy's a Republican, of course - the party of weird, freaky fetishes. I'm pretty sure you can find a few down Argentine way. (It's also the party of hypocritical family values right-wingers who screw around. Paging: Larry Craig, Newt Gingrich, David Vitter, Rush Limbaugh, Mark Foley, John Ensign, etc., etc. - there's not enough room on the Internet to list them all).

Sanford better hope that what happens in Buenos Aires, stays in Buenos Aires.

If there's not another woman (or man!!!!) involved in this story I will be very surprised!

I'm sure there's much more to the story. Did he break up the affair only because his wife found out about it five months ago? Wonder if he bore a child. What a shame he didn't spend Father's day with his family.

Two Republicans in a row fessing up this month.Third one's a charm. Nex
