Either some editor at the Washington Times has a truly awesome poker face, or this is the most unintentionally hilarious news paragraph I’ve ever seen:
Extramarital affairs, gambling, alcohol abuse, prostitution and sexual pursuit of minors have taken a toll on the GOP.
Gee, ya think?
On a related note, I have to say that while Mark “The Luv Guv” Sanford has been pretty useless as a wingnutty Republican, his unintentional contribution to the English vernacular merits the highest praise. By helping make “Hiking the Appalachian Trail” the instant preferred euphemism for adultery, Sanford may even have trimmed a few thousand years off his time in Purgatory.
