According to the official story, South Carolina governor Mark Sanford called his chief of staff today just to check in, and was "taken aback" by the interest his hiking trip has received. He'll now return home tomorrow "given the circumstances and the attention this has garnered." Hey man, don't try to pin this on us, as if it's amazing we even care about the humdrum minutiae of your life. You're the one who stalked off into the woods one day like Christopher McCandless and left South Carolina, which you are ostensibly responsible for governing, in a state of bewilderment. [HuffPo]
