a way with words

i still don't care about this sanford thing. i really wish the press spent as much time on policy as they did on the sex lives of politicians. but damn, did sanford really say "I spent the last five days of my life crying in Argentina" without trying to be funny? maybe he was trying to quell rumors that he was having a homosexual affair by making it clear that he doesn't know his show tunes?

this was just a few hours after he told the press that he went to argentina instead of hiking the appalachian trail because he "wanted to do something exotic"--not the best choice of words if you're caught sneaking off to see your foreign mistress.
