My admonishment was directed toward the mainstream and alternative media. It simply never entered my mind I needed to worry about Sanford himself using the occasion of an AP interview to let his inamorata know she's still his "soul mate."
This is classic masochism on Sanford's part, enduring pain to increase desire. Fine. If he's going to get off on public self-inflicted humiliation, who am I to stand in his way?
In fact, I dedicate this Tom Lehrer classic to the governor--while he still is the governor.
