OH, GOOD GRIEF: Sanford admits affair, apologizes to family. “Gov. Mark Sanford admitted today that his secret trip to Argentina over Father’s Day weekend was to visit a woman he is having an affair with.” With that sort of judgment, I guess we should be glad he didn’t get any closer to the White House. . . .

UPDATE: Priorities.

ANOTHER UPDATE: The Anchoress is not amused. “I am not without compassion, but Gov. Sanford just handed the whole nation a crap sandwich that the press will chew on for weeks and weeks, while they ignore other – much more pressing and meaningful – stories. And in that way, we are all injured.”
