Maureen Dowd on Gov. Sanford

The snarky New York Times columnist Maureen Dowd has skewered South Carolina's Mark Sanford, a governor who fell in love with himself.

Here's her comment:

As in all great affairs, Mark Sanford fell in love simultaneously with a woman and himself — with the dashing new version of himself he saw in her molten eyes...

With Maria, he was no longer the penny-pinching millionaire Mark, who used to sleep on a futon in his Congressional office and once treated two congressmen to movie refreshments by bringing back a Coke and three straws.

No, he was someone altogether more fascinating: Marco, international man of mystery and suave god of sex and tango.

Maybe Dowd's writing would be more at home on Soap Opera Digest. She rarely has anything of substance to say these days.
