.... MSM [mainstream media] outlets exceed their quota for quotation mark use.
S.C. Governor Mark Sanford [R] takes a four day weekend hiking the Appalachian and he forgot to tell the media, mix that with a slow news day and a little liberal bias and what do you get...
Governor goes missing! Sanford abandons his duties! Mark Sanford clearly insane! What rational human being leaves town for four days and can't be reached by cell phone/iphone/laptop/tracking chip?! How can he twitter when he takes a dump in the woods?!
I guess the idea of a man just wanting to get away, even from technology, has become completely foreign in our instant message age. Sanford decided for Father's Day he wanted to get away. Suddenly he is mentally incapable and a bad father too.
MSM is quick to crucify.
or are they...it depends on your political affiliation. Republicans are held to hire standard, I suppose. I have yet to see national headlines about VA Governor Tim Kaine [D] who is famous for mysteriously vanishing on the tax payers dime. Hell, the Washington Post blog Virginia Politics routinely asks for information on his whereabouts.... have you seen this Governor? What's next, milk cartons?
What ever the case may be surrounding his "mysterious" disappearance the incredibility lies in the absurdity that this is even news worthy compared to the scandelous misdeeds of other "certain" governors. Imagine if Obama did the same, he would be lauded for having the sensibility to take a "sabbatical" and "clear his head" resulting in "better performance of his administration duties".
