Morning News – Governor Sanford Admits Affair

By brettsinger |

Obama GovernorsSo it turns out Mark Sanford wasn’t hiking on the Appalachian Trail. He was in Argentina sleeping with a woman other than his wife.

That’s pretty much all you need to know. The press conference Sanford gave is absurd in a number of ways. Here it is if you want to check it out:

The thing that really gets me is the way he looks all moony-eyed. You know, he’s just a man in love. It happens to all of us. Not really, dude. (I have stronger words for the Gov at DaddyTips.com.)

This guy on YouTube (zennie62) offers a little commentary. Kinda funny. A little too long (2+ minutes) but the beginning is pretty good.

Here’s the really good one — Sanford talking about another man who lied to his wife. Yeah. OK.

There’s more — like the EMAILS HE SENT TO HIS MISTRESS — but let’s move on.

President Obama will meet with the Pope next month. Good thing we separation of church and state in this country, right?

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad (does anyone else feel smart because they can pronounce his name? I do) says that President Obama is doing what President Bush used to do. “Mr. Obama made a mistake to say those things. Our question is why he fell into this trap and said things that previously Bush used to say.” PRESIDENT Obama (not MISTER Obama, Mahmoud) has been critical of the Iranian crackdown on protestors. As far as I can tell, he’s mostly been critical of the police, many of them not even wearing uniforms, KILLING protestors. Not exactly a radical position. Then again, Ahmadinejad appears to be insane.

Anyone who was desperate to see the Danielle Straub sex tape — sorry. Not gonna happen. A judge blocked the release of the supposedly steamy cell phone video. (How do you hold a cell phone camera while having sex? The mind boggles.) Straub is on the Bravo series “Real Housewives of New Jersey.” As if you didn’t know.

Let’s end with something kind of annoying. A Long Island mom of 3 named Maryann (no last name given) lost her $19,000 engagement ring at Target. They found it. But an employee of the store gave it to the wrong person. It’s like the old joke “hey, did anyone lose a twenty dollar bill?” “Oh! That’s mine. Thanks!” Personally, I wouldn’t wear a piece of jewelry that cost that much money. Not even while shopping at Target.

(I used a version of the image that has Sanford’s head chopped off. Because that’s probably what his wife wants to do to him. Wrong head, but you know. We do what we can.)

    Well, uhm, actually, the Pope is the Head of State for Vatican City. I think most US Presidents have met with him.

  2. Amanda B. says:

    What does that crack about President Obama meeting with the Pope mean? He is the head of a sovereign state, afterall, and the head of a faith with over 1 billion followers worldwide. Do you think American presidents shouldn’t meet with religious leaders?

  4. KellyK says:

    Yeah I don’t understand either why he wouldn’t meet with the Pope. I mean he has “met” with all different kinds of religious leaders, right?

  5. Brett Singer says:

    No offense meant, and I’m not saying he shouldn’t meet with the Pope. But why is it major news?

  6. KellyK says:

    That makes more sense…I agree it shouldn’t be MAJOR news.

  7. Amanda B. says:

    I think it may be big news because of the whole Notre Dame thing a month or so ago and Obama’s decision to federallly fund embryonic stem cell research, which the Pope is against. Plus,. Obama supports abortion rights, including partial-birth abortion. So maybe the two of them will have some interesting conversations about issues like that. Who knows?

    I am sure they’ll be talking about MAJOR news, such as Jon and Kate..

  10. Brett Singer says:

    Hey, maybe the Pope is a fan of the show. :-)

  11. Bluster says:

    I was there at the time, and it went like this:
    The old man came into the tavern, calling out,”Anyone loose five bucks outside?”
    The town tightwad fumbled through his pockets, then responded, “I did. It’s mine.”
    The old man reached his hand across a table to the tightwads hand. “Here, I found a nickle of it on the side walk.”
