Wasn't Governor Sanford Just Following The Politician's Handbook?

Governor Sanford is the latest to stand before us reading the same canned and overly-rehearsed speech apologizing to his family and the public. It's the same drill, different names, different day. Cue the phony tears of shame. Is anyone outside of the situation ever truly shocked? Sleeping around seems part of the job requirement once you have any bit of fame and/or power. In fact, I believe it's all there in black and white in the Politician's Handbook, Chapter 1, Section 4, Sub-section A. Let's take a look, shall we?:

How To Become A Politician *
* Though not necessarily a good one

Interested in Politics? Here's what you do:

1. Major in Political Science, work hard, and never keep it in your pants.

2. While you're getting established and gaining experience, find a great woman who will stand by you as you embark on this career. Make sure she will sacrifice everything for you and your own gain, raise your children, and then cheat on her. She may find out, she may not. But if the affair is exposed, make sure it's super humiliating for her. CONTINUE READING ALICIA'S POST AT THE NJ MOMS BLOG >>>

This posting had me laughing pretty hard. You are spot on regarding the politicians.

It is such an old tried-and-true formula. The ones who are caught are contrite because they got caught. They're not sorry for what they've actually done.

This case still has me baffled. I wouldn't be able to leave the house for more than 2 hours without someone hollering for me. And I'm only being watched by 4 people, plus 2 dogs and various other pets. This guy was in the eye of an entire STATE (and now, thanks to his idiocy, the entire nation) and he thought nobody was going to notice he'd taken off???

It's like... do they WANT to get caught???? or, are they just THAT stupid?!??!?!

LOL! I'm so tired of being apologized to.

Just finished your post on the other blog. You forgot one: send your wife to be on "I'm a Celebrity, Get me Out of Here" to try to regain the public's sympathy. Oh wait, that's if you get caught trying to sell a senate seat. Never mind.
