Maybe this is a new strategy for the Republican party--everyone who wants to run for President in 2012 has to try to catch up with Newt Gingrich in the infidelity sweepstakes.
Gov. Mark Sanford admitted Wednesday he's been having an affair with a woman he visited on a secret trip to Argentina and said he'll resign as head of the Republican Governors Association.What's Sarah Palin going to have to do to keep up? Sleep with Letterman?
Seriously, though, as I said about Ensign, marital infidelity doesn't bother me (as far as a politicians qualifications are concerned), and it's getting to where I don't even care about the hypocrisy anymore. I expect it now, just like I expect every baseball player who's denied taking steroids or HGH to come up dirty in a test. Besides, just like with Ensign, there are plenty of other reasons to think that Sanford would be a train wreck as President--no need to drag his marriage into it.
Side note: Sanford is apparently from Fort Lauderdale. South Carolina can keep him.
