Sanford presidential prospects go south (of the border)

GOP Gov. Mark Sanford probably ended his chances for 2012 with a Father’s Day romp south of the border. Politico has the details…

Politico asks:

But is the straight-laced Republican base ready for a candidate whose idea of relaxation is leaving his wife and kids on Father’s Day weekend to skip the country?

The same weekend Obama exhorted men to be better fathers than those of the previous generation, Gov. Sanford is in Argentina “doing something more exotic.”

One thought on “Sanford presidential prospects go south (of the border)”

    Republicans seem to have a propensity for shooting themselves in the foot. Perhaps though it is because they have such big feet – large targets derived of such righteousness.
