Gov. Sanford Admits Affair

According to the Associated Press, "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...He said he's known the woman about eight years, but their relationship turned into something more a year ago while he was on an economic development trip to Argentina....Sanford, a rumored 2012 presidential candidate, refused to say whether he'll leave office." When asked if he is trying to reconcile with his wife, Jenny, Sanford nodded, "I am, yeah."

We can all learn lessons from this, I suppose. One is that, if you're disenchanted with your wife and so decide to go on an "economic development trip" to Argentina, it's probably best not to "hike the Appalachian Trail" with a woman you've "known" for about 8 years. (Especially if she's a "woman".....)

Another is that it's probably best not to respond with a resigned "yeah" in these situations, when asked if you're going to try to reconcile with your wife....
