What the hell was Mark Sanford doing?

South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford was missing for more than four days late last week and early this week.

First off, how does a head of state disappear for four days, with no one, not his wife, his children, his chief of staff, his security detail, I mean no one, having a clue where he is?

This man has been in the news a lot for his opposition to the state accepting stimulus money, often for reasons that are clearly based on the fact he simply wants nothing to do with anything Barack Obama does. I think Obama could offer to heal every sick person in South Carolina, and Sanford would object simply because Obama is a Democrat.

But I digress.

When the leader of your state disappears for four days, leaving the state without anyone in charge (suppose there had been a disaster, or some other unanticipated event, that required his, and only his, signature or approval to deal with), something is wrong with that person mentally.

To top it all off, he clearly had no means of contacting the outside world, because when he finally did call to check in, he had no idea anyone was looking for him.

What? You are the governor of a state. You disappear for four days. And you think no one is going to look for you? 

Clearly, this man is mentally incompetent and should not be the governor of South Carolina, or any other state.

Now, he's apparently told several different stories as to where he was during his absence. First, he was believed to be in Atlanta. Then, his staff said he told them he was hiking the Appalachia Trail. Now, he claims he was in South America.


Surely there's something in the law in this state that says mental incompetence disqualifies you from serving out your term. If not, he needs to be removed by whatever legal means necessary, before he severely damages his state.

Of course, he's no Rod Blagojavich. Or Elliott Spitzer (who, apparently, New Yorkers now want back in office). However, he's still nuts, and needs to go.

  1. When I first heard he might have been hiking nude on the Appalachian Trail, I thought he might not be too bad. Now that I've found out he's just another adulterer I'm not surprised.


Thanks for reading -- and for the feedback!
