Dear Governor Sanford,
When Senator John Ensign confessed to an affair with a former staffer, we were amused but not necessarily impressed .
Then you came along with your unplanned vacation to South America.
Your staff thought you were hiking in the woods – but not you, you wanted something special. Something exotic.
And thus the summer just got more interesting.
Your motivation? You wanted to get away from a tough legislative season. [take the money]
Who among us hasn’t wanted to get away from it all. But not since the runaway bride have we seen someone take stress so far – and for that we salute you.
Best hopes for the future.
PS: Did you happen to snag any souvenirs while you were away?
