Frailty and Power

Governor Sanford has enriched our language with a new euphemism: “Hiking The Appallachian” which henceforth will evoke steamy Argentine dreams and the feckless fools who abandon reason to pursue them.

Most people are justifiably eager to see Sanford resign from office but some folks don’t mind if he stays.  Neither party is relevant. 

Sanford ditched his formidable security detail, hoodwinked his staff, flew to Argentina and rocked out for a week.  While it may provoke all kinds of indignation from people there’s one fundamental truth to all this:  ANYONE who is capable of contemplating then carrying out a plan of action like that couldn’t give less of a shit what you or I or anyone else thinks.
