After disappearing, South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford surfaced on Wednesday to admit he ran off to Argentina--leaving the country without telling anyone-- to have an affair. He had a press conference on this today.

And what do you think?

THIRD GOVERNOR TO DISHONOR THE OFFICE, THE GUY FROM NEW YORK, ILLINOIS AND NOW SOUTH CAROLINA BITES THE DUST!
I THINK THESE GUYS ARE GOING THROUGH MID-LIFE CRISIS, THEY ARE DESTROYING FAMILIES IN A HEARTBEAT!
THE GUY FROM ILLINOIS IS GOING TO PRISON!

In general, people's private lives are their own business! There are ethics and responsiblity however. I did not like Governor Corzine dating a senior union official.. there are boundaries please! I am disgusted with the GOP hypocrisy... endless divorces, serial marriages, and diehard opposition to gay marriage. Sanford is a mess.. he needs therapy not running a state, and positioning himself as another holy hetero railing against same sex relationships. As a social worker I am personally familiar with the complexity of human relationships. However, I believe people need to figure out their ethics and have responsible relationships particularly with those who care about them!

for me, the jury is still out. lets have a look at her. if she looks anything like the argenitines i've met, hey, let the good times roll. who wants to be governor of south carolina anyway? or president for that matter.
now, sarkozy, he's got it going ON!
