A little over a year ago when it was revealed that Elliot Spitzer was "Customer 9" I wrote a post expressing my feelings about how his actions were a gift to people who are in the dis-trust business, and bad news for the rest of us.
And now playing out over the past couple days is the story of another Governor who had a loose interpretation of his marriage vows, and who was willing to pay even more for a hook up than Elliot - when you consider the cost of international travel.
But instead of being pissed at Governor Sanford, I am actually grateful.
You see, I live in Illinois.
Until yesterday, any serious discussion of the Craziest Governor in the US was pretty much a slam dunk for our guy Rod Blagojevich. At least now it's a horse race for the title of Craziest Governor.
My money is still on Robo-Hair, but a couple more steamy emails and one or two press conferences and this could become competitive.
