Another p3 political pop quiz

South Carolina newspaper The State got a look at (still-)Governor Mark Sanford's press secretary's email traffic during those awkward days last month when the Governor's whereabouts were still unknown.

Via TPM Muckraker come the following excerpts from those emails, each written by a media site using the prospect of an obviously impending scandal (exact details still unknown) to get on the good side of Governor's (and, at the time, presidential hopeful's) office.

But one isn't like the other three: Can you spot which one?


Having known the Governor for years and even worked with him when he would host radio shows for me -- I find this story and the media frenzy surrounding it to be absolutely ridiculous! Please give him my best.


If you all want to speak on this publicly, you're welcome to Washington Times Radio. You know that you will be on friendly ground here!

And finally:

If the governor is looking for a friendly place to make light of what I think is a small story that got blown out of scale I would be happy to have him on. In person here, on the phone, or in South Carolina.

Stay strong,

The first two quotes are from a Fox News correspondent and a Washington Times staffer, respectively.

The third is from Stephen Colbert.

You can't tell the right-wing whores without a score card.
