More drivel from Governor Sanford
Governor Mark Sanford (R-SC) is a prime example why public relations people and other damage control experts counsel no comment after the wrong doer has been exposed.
After rambling for several days about his love affair like no other, the overgrown horny adolescent continues his ramblings in the South Caroline state blog, explaining God will make him a better person after all his public travails.
Hey, great comfort to the wife, their kids, his constituents and his lover.
Life is indeed about way more than public standing or political views, it's about recognizing that none of us are the arbiters of truth, that there are moral absolutes, and that there is a God to whom we will all report for our actions. My failure has been most glaring on this front, where no public apology can make wrong right. As a consequence, it is on this plane that I've grown the most over the past weeks - and where I'm committed to growing the most going forward. I've been humbled and broken as never before in my life and as a consequence have given up areas of control in a way that I never have before - and it is my belief that this will make me a better father, husband, friend and advocate. Governor Sanford, shut up already!
It's in the spirit of making good from bad that I am committing to you and the larger family of South Carolinians to use this experience to both trust God in his larger work of changing me, and from my end, to work to becoming a better and more effective leader.
