It’s the only fitting word for a man who abandons his wife and four sons on Father’s Day weekend to indulge his “overdrive” on an Argentinian fling.

Mark Sanford: Bastard.

***

If you missed Sanford’s rambling, surreal disaster of a press conference, consider yourself lucky.

He had a hell of a lot more passion and pathos for his mistress than his own wife. He referred wistfully to the “great friendship” and “that sparking thing” he had with the mistress for eight years — during which his wife was raising his four children.

No excuses.

No “but, but, look at all the dirty Democrats.”

This is a disgrace. I called Michelle Obama what she is earlier this week. I call Mark Sanford what he is now.

He called himself “selfish” at the press conference. That’s the least of it.

***

If you can’t honor your marriage vows, how can you expect voters to trust you to honor your damned oath of office?

Philip Klein:

It’s absolutely disgraceful not only that he had an affair, not only that he lied about it publicly, but that he put his staff in a position to lie about it. And anybody who has followed Sanford was given the impression that he was a family man. Always close to his sons, so tight with his wife that she managed every one of his campaigns and even served temporarily as his chief of staff while he was governor. And yet he abandons them on Father’s Day weekend to fly off to Argentinia to see his mistress, and now forces them to live through all this emotional pain in the media spotlight.

A reminder about what I said regarding stupid, selfish John Ensign: here and here.
