The Carolina Tomcat

Sanford Cartoon, originally uploaded by rbtenorio.

I enjoyed the cartoon but there's a big difference in this story and Edward's (which, by the way, received lots of media attention, forcing him out of the major race of his political career!): Sanford disappeared for a week while in office in a most irresponsible way, without leaving anyone in charge of S.C. And, he was repeatedly vocal when he voted to impeach Clinton for "breaking his oath" and lying to his wife and constituents.
