Today in Narcissism

An update from the Palmetto state via NY Magazine:

According to Jenny [Sanford], she had already told [ex-husband] Mark she would be taking a pass on the [Congressional] race the day before, at the funeral of a mutual friend. So when Mark came to visit her, he arrived with a proposal. “Since you’re not running, I want to know if you’ll run my campaign,” he said. “We could put the team back together.”

Jenny told him, in so many words, that wasn’t going to happen. Mark made one last appeal.

“I could pay you this time,” he said.

“I’ve got cash,” Sanford did not say. “I’ll leave a $20 on the dresser.”

Sweet Jeebus, what is wrong with Wingnuts today? Of all people, why did bad-haired GOP sex-lizard and notorious Appalachian trail hiking, amateur castanet playing Lothario, former South Carolina Governor Mark “Kiss Me South of the Border” Sanford think that the woman he cheated on (who, it seems, was the brains of the operation) would want back on the Crazy Train?

It must be the haircut

Just a reminder of the seething hotbed of unbridled lust, a sample of Sanford’s correspondence to his firecracker lady:

“I could digress and say that … I love your tan lines or that I love the curves of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of night’s light.”

    “I could digress and say that…”

    If nothing else, he sure is a romantic bastard.

    You see, THIS is why I can’t stand these Holier-Than-Thou-I’m-Saved-So-F-You Politicians. I hope he gets his clock cleaned, but I won’t be surprised if he wins.

    OK, I was completely in Jenny Sanford’s corner until I read this (emphasis mine):

    His own embarrassment having dissipated (and processed into a talking point), Sanford is just beginning to absorb the other major fallout of his affair: his loss of Jenny. When he showed up on her porch last December, it was his final try in a years-long effort to somehow make room for both Jenny and Chapur in his life. His infidelity notwithstanding, it seems he never considered ending the marriage. Even after Jenny discovered the affair, he tried to find some middle ground that would allow him to preserve both relationships, begging for his wife’s permission to have visits—albeit non-conjugal ones—with his mistress. (On one occasion, for a trip to New York, Jenny granted it, on the condition that a friend serve as chaperone. “Sleep well,” the friend texted Jenny at the end of the evening. “He played by the rules.”)

    Really, Jenny? Really? I guess it takes two to dance with the stupid…

    Jenny’s being classy. Were she as despicable as Mark, she would take the gig and “mishandle” his campaign so Mark would be unelectable, if such a thing is possible in South Carolina.
