Well, going to Argentina without telling anyone is a bit weird. A politician having an affair, not so weird. No, not John Ensign, Mark Sanford:
The married father of four emotionally apologized to his wife, staff and others at a news conference after returning Wednesday from a trip to Argentina that followed a dayslong absence. He staff had said the Republican was hiking on the Appalachian Trail.
Sanford says he met the woman about eight years ago and it became romantic about a year ago. He says his wife and family have known about it for the past five months.
I guess we can at least be rest-assured that several of the sons of Mitt Romney are robust enough that there is going to be a natural deterrent against their father having a midlife life crisis that leads to extra-marital adventure.
