COMMENTARY

Congratulations South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford on becoming the latest Republican “defender” of marriage to be caught getting some on the side. How’s it feel to be a walking cliché?

Well, if we’re to judge from the press conference he held to announce his infidelity, it feels very, um, awkward. Sanford rambled on and on and apologized to his wife, four sons, and every other person he has ever seen or heard of. Just when you thought he was about to go in for the big reveal, he’d say something like, “Let me throw one more apology out here and that is to people of faith across South Carolina or, for that matter, across the nation.”
