i pretty much said "how I feel" in my first comment. Mr. Sanford has used up all of his political capital already. Vote "smart" residents of So. Carolina. Thats how I feel in a nutshell.

This was all Jenny’s Sanford's fault, she let herself “go” and forced Mark to outsource their martial relations to Argentina. Now Jenny is one of the “takers” that Mitt warned us about with her excessive alimony and so called “child support” demands! Typical lazy and unmotivated US worker that Mark so often talks about! And Mark only used our Tax Dollars because he could get some hot Argentina poontang, and any red blooded family values guy can understand that, I understand why his hysterical and emotional opponent does not. Further, his son put Mark in a bad situation by wanting to leave the Superbowl party. What was Mark to do – the only place this new technology called “Television” is available is in downtown Charleston and Jenny’s house.
