    just for the record, i don't think he would last one day on the A.T.

    •  And indeed he did not. Which is the point. (1+ / 0-)

      I'll break the cardinal rule and explain the joke:

      In his last days as governor, before anyone realized it was his last days as governor, Sandford disappeared over a long weekend. His staff told the press that he was hiking the Appalachian Trail and unavailable for comments.

      Two problems with that:

      First, it was some kind of hippie back-to-nature weekend on the Trail, and the majority of hikers were wearing no clothing above the ankle.

      Second, Sanford was actually in South America screwing the daylights out of his mistress.

      It was a really bad excuse to cover up really bad behavior. (Not that I typically think a politician's marital life is any of my business -- but since Sanford thinks my personal life is fair game for political discourse, I'm happy to play on his sandlot by neighborhood rules.)
