Mark Sanford’s Trail … Of Hypocrisy

All the explanations for Gov. Mark Sanford’s absence — the recharging, the writing, the catching up on projects, the naked Appalachian Trail hiking — are officially inoperative. Come to think of it, Sanford did take a hike — from his obligations to his wife and family and to his constituents.

A secret Argentinean affair! Wow! You have to give the righteous Republican Brownie points for creativity:

Mark Sanford’s Trail … Of Hypocrisy (Limerick)
By Madeleine Begun Kane

The myst’ry of Sanford is solved.
We have learned an affair is involved.
Argentinean tryst!
Now that’s quite a twist.
Say goodbye to his Prez hopes. Dissolved!

    The myst’ry of Sanford is solved.
    It finally has been resolved.
    A lover he had.
    His wife’s bloody mad.
    Cause he thinks that he’ll be absolved.

    I don’t know about limericks, but we can paraphrase Andrew Lloyd Weber:

    Don’t cry for me, Carolina!
    The truth is, I up and left you.
    Through all the sneaking,
    The weird deceptions,
    I broke my promise.
    What? Keep my distance?

  3. I expect him to resign after July 4. An investigation has been launched to see if he used public funds for his sexual expedition. Another mess for the GOP.
