Sanford in 2012

OK, time for a little baseless speculation (and take full advantage of the opportunity to snicker):

Check out this set of facts. Fact 1: Gov. Mark Sanford went missing Thursday and hasn't been seen since. Fact 2: His staff has since told us that the governor has been hiking the Appalachian Trail. Fact 3: Sunday was "Naked Hiking Day" on the Appalachian Trail. We kid you not.


While no one I know wants to see a naked republican governor, Sanford could take a bold step to change the image of the republican party. Imagine him declaring "I'm the only candidate who's openly pro-walking naked in the woods." Where would Obama stand on the "nude hiking" issue? I'm thinking this could be a real winner for the republicans.

(added: Sanford now says he was in Argentina. I'm still looking for a good political snark angle in that.)

Dude, he's a Republican. The only way he would be naked in the woods would be if he was boffing his mistress or wooing one of his (male underaged) interns. And even there, I think checking the pay-per-hour motel rooms (especially those that have no problem with livestock in the room :-) likely will hit pay dirt sooner than checking the AT. The party of family values, indeed - heh!

Well Py it looks like you're back to running speed. Once again you beat me to it. And that was some nice snark for a penguin.

'Tux, looks like you were right (except the location).
And Demeur, don't we all hate it when they make our snark irrelevent?
