Because sometimes you care about South Carolina politics for microseconds at a time

You know, I never intended to turn this into a political blog, but seeing as I've been a bit of a political junkie for the past, oh, 235346 years, it just kinda happened.

So, queen of the welfare queens Mark Sanford disappeared mysteriously on Thursday, and didn't tell his staff or even his wife (who "was not concerned because he'd told her he wanted to get away and do some writing" lolz) where he was going.

Here's the good part! Sanford returns today, through Atlanta so that he could avoid press in Columbia, SC, but is cornered in the ATL by some podunk the SC paper of record (?). He gives a bunch of contradictory answers re: his whereabouts. Finally says he was in Buenos Aires driving along the coast and couldn't be bothered to check in.

And then the AP (!!!) gets snarky.
Sanford told The State he was alone on the trip to Argentina. He declined to give any additional details about what he did other than to say he drove along the coastline.

Trying to make such a drive could frustrate a weekend visitor to Argentina. In Buenos Aires, the Avenida Costanera is the only coastal road, and it's less than two miles long. Reaching coastal resorts to the south requires a drive of nearly four hours on an inland highway with views of endless cattle ranches. To the north is a river delta of islands reached only by boat.


You know, there's a term for people like Mark Sanford that I vaguely recall....what was it....oh yea:

That's an asshat btw
