Your Backyard is a Wonderland

Update: Ex-Gov/Ex-Husband responds:
I did indeed watch the second half of the Super Bowl at the beach house with our 14 year old son because as a father I didn’t think he should watch it alone.
Our dad took us to a Dirty Harry movie at 14, but we don’t think it was as violent as the Super Bowl.
Update 2: And, the Republicans cut him loose…
Blindsided by news that Sanford’s ex-wife has accused him of trespassing and concluding he has no plausible path to victory, the National Republican Congressional Committee has decided not to spend more money on Sanford’s behalf ahead of the May 7 special election.
But oh, so gently…
“Mark Sanford has proven he knows what it takes to win elections. At this time, the NRCC will not be engaged in this special election,” said Andrea Bozek, an NRCC spokeswoman.
That’s how you backstab in the big leagues.
Update 3: But wait! It keeps getting better!
Meanwhile, the Washington Post has learned that tensions within the family flared up as recently as April 2, at the celebration of Sanford’s runoff election victory when the former governor thrust two of his sons on-stage with the Argentine woman who was at the center of the spectacular sex scandal that broke up his marriage.
For Sanford’s teenage son Bolton, that very public moment marked the first time he had ever been in the presence of Maria Belen Chapur.
As a father, Mark Sanford didn’t think his son should meet his mistress alone.
