Mark Sanford the Appalachian Democrat?
Just in case you haven't acquainted yourself with South Carolina Republican Governor Mark Sanford's emails, here's a link in his lessons of love. But let me indulge myself and give just a few tidbits of just one of his email lessons:
He used flattery:
"..you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of night's light"
He used power:
"The following weekend have been asked to spend it out in Aspen, Colorado with McCain-which has kicked up the whole VP talk allover again in the press back home.
He used poetry:
"Have you been told lately how warm your eyes are and how they softly glow with the special nature of your soul."
And he used himself--- the misunderstood Governor, who just desired unrequited love, but who would use his power to corrupt she who he pursued:
"The rarest of all commodities in the world is love. It is that thing that we all yearn for at some level--to be simply loved unconditionally for nothing more than who we are--not what we can get, give or become. There are but 50 governors in my country and outside the top spot, this is as high as you can go..."
Is it any wonder FOX had a (D) for Democrat at his news conference in the picture above?
But Mark doesn't need to worry.
John McCain's daughter, Meghan, forgives him over at the Daily Beast!
Maybe he can send her that story, in an envelope with a stamp!
