Most Governors are Easy to Find

GOP Presidential Material?

Texas Gov. Rick Perry was raising money at campaign headquarters when an Associated Press reporter called his press staff to ask what he was doing. An hour later, he walked into AP’s statehouse bureau to show he was alive and well and not, say, in South America for a romantic rendezvous.

Most of the nation’s governors were willing — even eager — to prove they were on the job after revelations that South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford ditched his security detail and disappeared for a secret weeklong tryst with a mistress in Argentina.

The day after Sanford admitted his indiscretion at a tearful, rambling press conference, The Associated Press called governors’ offices nationwide to ask: What’s the boss doing right now?

Virginia Gov. Timothy M. Kaine was sitting in his office. His staff did not release his calendar, citing privacy and security concerns.

State Republicans have filed Freedom of Information Act requests seeking Kaine’s travel record in a flap over trips he’s made as chairman of the Democratic National Committee.

Kaine refused Friday to provide the documents, saying a 1991 state Supreme Court on gubernatorial phone records provided precedent for the denial.

When a reporter called the office of Gov. Mike Beebe, of Arkansas, staff said he was at the dentist. Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley was fishing with his 10-year-old son. Wisconsin Gov. Jim Doyle was flying back from a Washington speaking engagement, while Alaska Gov. Sarah Palin was visiting U.S. troops in eastern Europe.

It would be so very refreshing and genuine for these politicians who go out and get a BJ, get laid, get tied-up and tickled, etc. to just admit what everyone (except those bible-thumping Republicans of the religious-reich) already know...

Sex is good. Sex is fun. Sometimes sex is better outside of marriage, other times, it is better inside of marriage.

To the politicians: Just cut the bullshit and admit it...you had a great time during your affair and your only regret is the stupid reaction that news of your adventure caused when it became news fodder.

So next time, and there will always be a next time one of you politicians gets caught fooling around, just come right out and say something like:

"Yeah! I F*cked her/him (or THEM, as in Jack Kennedy, or Bill Clinton's case! It was awesome, too! I have no regrets, whatsoever. You citizens should keep in mind that when your (insert: President/Governor/Senator/Congressman/Councilman.../Dog Catcher/miscellaneous elected official) is happy, then you poor bastards get much better government."

Thank you for commenting on my blog.
I wonder if you would mind if I removed the double post?
