What bothers me most about South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford’s affair isn’t the fact that he abandoned his wife and children on Father’s Day weekend to be with his mistress – though that is pretty reprehensible. What bothers me the most is his continued statements that his mistress is his soul mate. In an interview with the Associated Press, Gov. Sanford said, “I will be able to die knowing that I had met my soul mate,” and the “soul mate” he’s referring to isn’t his wife.
As a man who’s never taken marriage lightly, I just really want to punch Mark Sanford right in the face, because he’s a Grade-A jackass.
