The media could silence this matter by no longer covering it. Sanford needs to be fined for trips down south on his taxpayer's nickels and dimes. If there's other legal action to take from the office standpoint, go that way. Otherwise affairs are not out business.

Did this guy do something illegal? If not then who the hell cares? I don't. Why can't we just grow up and worry about what kind of job he is doing and leave it at that? I've been out of the country for a while but I don't think fucking is illegal.

That was funny! And, yes, we do think it's "just another run-of-the-mill mid-life crisis being played out in public by another narcissistic elected official" and a "more silent mode" from the media as well as Sanford would be great!

Frankly I'd rather the media talk less about some weird dead pop star and more about hot Argentinian mistresses.

It was funny - the TDS is so good at running these clips in humorous succession. As for the "real news" - this is the media obsessing on the Republican party's weird pretense that they are shocked that one of their annointed is hung up on his mistress. When you're the "party of family values" and home to the King Davids of the world, this is what you do.

I don't usually even try to imagine what it's like for the spouse when this kind of crap comes out - most ofthe time I fugure the spouse already had a pretty good idea what was going on. Sanford is really weird though, why does he think his public pining for his girlfriend is something his wife or we want to hear?

Hey Tim, honest question: has anyone tracked the number of people who voted for Bill Clinton's impeachment, but then announced extramarital affairs of their own?

Including Sanford, I can name a half-dozen off the top of my head.
