The Mysterious Missing Mr. Sanford

I was tempted to join in the snarkfest over SC Gov. Mark Sanford's disappearing act. I mean, as the saying goes, it would be irresponsible not to speculate. Lord knows there was plenty of snarking going on, if you sift through the commentary. But having been burned by snarking too soon in the past, I held back on the chance that something bad had actually happened to him. However, the latest reports allege he's been in contact and was hiking the Appalachian Trail.

I would normally be inclined to doubt that, but then again, he would have been there on Hike Naked Day. While it's unlikely he was hauling ass over the trail buck nekkid himself, it's no stretch to imagine he was hoping to do some sightseeing of the homo-erectus variety.

And in another twist of irony, if Mr. "I Don't Want No Steenking Stimulus" was really hiking on the trail, he was tacitly endorsing the expenditure of stimulus funds for trail improvements. Odd story all around, but then again, all high profile GOPers are weird.
