Do lawd Jeebus, help us. Guess who might enter the SC Senator picture:

Mark Sanford Mulls Second Act in South Carolina
Mark Sanford at the GOP convention in August 2012.
So could departing Sen. Jim DeMint be followed in a few years by…Sen. Mark Sanford?

Don’t rule it out. In an interview, the former South Carolina governor said he’d been by bombarded Thursday by calls and emails from former donors and allies encouraging him to consider a run in the 2014 election for Mr. DeMint’s seat. And, guess what? He’s not dismissing the idea.

“It’s not a ‘no,’ but it’s not a ‘yes,’ ” Mr. Sanford said.

Pleeeeeeeaze come back Markie Mark. You and your hiking trail companion will be a sight to see on the stump. I hope Jenny Sanford primaries you.

Depends on what part of the Bible people decide to invoke.

6. When Jesus said to the mob: "Let he who is without sin cast the first stone"...

... the object of their wrath was "a woman taken in adultery." Her partner in this heinous crime was nowhere to be seen.

To this day, the one who gets punished by death in cultures like this is the woman. Never heard of a guy being stoned, though in a few books there are references to other eye-opening forms of punishment for some (but by no means all) men.

Makes me SO glad to be an American woman born in the 20th century.

3. Why isn't that guy in Buenos Aires with the "love of my life"?

I don't think that guy should be visited upon any electorate at this point. He is too besotted to have a realistic picture of the world and how it works.

7. Well...let me see... there's:

Mrs Governor (can't remember her name...Haley?); Jenny Sanford, Stephen Cobert, and now Mark Sanford. Of course Mrs Governor has to appoint someone to DeMint's seat to finish out his term? (which ends in 2014?) Who knows how that is all going to settle out. I just hope Mark is left in the dust... Didn't he marry his mistress? Seriously, I thought I read he married her.
