Hometown paper calls on idiot to resign

After Sanford tells a reporter he "was surprised the story was attracting such attention," the editors conclude that not only is the man a lying criminal horndog, but completely off his fucking tree.

A South Carolina newspaper called Thursday for the resignation of the state's governor, who has admitted to having to an extramarital affair with an Argentine woman.

Republican Mark Sanford told The State newspaper he was surprised the story was attracting such attention.

Gov. Mark Sanford "cannot navigate a deep and painful personal crisis and lead the state through its economic crisis at the same time," an editorial in the Spartanburg Herald-Journal said. "He should resign."

After disappearing for nearly a week, Sanford admitted after he was caught that he had not hiked the Appalachian Trail after all. Unless by "hiking the Appalachian Trail" you mean "bonking the bejeebus out of some foreign babe on the taxpayer dime." Then, yeah.
