Gov. Sanford Confesses to Affair

I used to really like Gov. Sanford. I wrote about him previously here. He admitted today that he cheated on his wife with a woman in Argentina. Ironically, one excerpt from an earlier speech he made mentions judging others based on their actions:

[T]he Bible says, “Let your light so shine before men that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father that’s in heaven.“ Hopefully, by the way in which you act. The way in which you make decisions.

Two Republicans have been outed as morally deficient in less than a week (than other man is Nevada's John Ensign). Maybe this is God's way of forcing the Republican Party to stop catering to the religious right and to convince them to return to old-time republican principles: small government, low inflation, personal humility, and anti-unnecessary wars. Or, maybe it's just karma for spending millions of taxpayer dollars going after Bill Clinton.

I hate to smile at anyone's misfortune, but I did manage a chuckle at one of the names given to this scandal: "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina." By the way, Jenny Sanford has issued her own statement. Click here to read her heartfelt words. I predict she'll hold public office someday in South Carolina.
