the curious case of Mark Sanford

Deep craziness out of South Carolina.

A self-professed "man of faith" and full-throated bellower of "family values" admitting to an affair is hardly news these days.

But this one just kept slipping farther into Looney Land.

Not only did Sanford spend the first two minutes of his press conference rambling on about his love for "adventure trips" and then bizarrely insisting that his love for such trips was "true", not only did it take him over seven minutes of apologizing, (only breaking down when apologizing to his friends as opposed to his wife) but during the entirety of the press conference, directly over Sanford's right shoulder, two grinning young women beamed at the cameras, particularly lighting up when Sanford would say something like:

"I hurt her. I hurt my boys."

Fiends in human form? Non-English speakers who thought they were getting a tour of the Statehouse?

Curiouser and curiouser...
