And by that we mean, of course, that he's back with that Argentinian woman. Sanford has admitted to the press that he was with his former mistress (he's divorced now, so she's really more like a standard girlfriend at this point), Maria Belen Chapur, in Florida over the weekend, trying to rekindle the flame.

"As a matter of record, everybody in this room knows exactly who I was with over the weekend," Sanford said. "That is no mystery to anybody given what I said last summer. And, you know, the purpose was obviously to see if something could be restarted on that front given the rather enormous geographic gulf between us. And time will tell. I don't know if it will or won't."

Best of luck, you crazy romantic. And don't be so pessimistic. Your shared passion for The Holiday, a very mediocre movie, can overcome all obstacles.
