E-mails are forever

My old boss and mentor used to tell me: Write the letter, then tear it up. Same holds true for emails.  How many times have you been so pissed you wrote the most vitriolic letter, put the stamp on the envelope (or had your finger on the Send button) and then thankfully came to your senses.  That shit’ll come back to haunt you…every time.

The Governor of South Carolina is realizing this now.  His behavior is certainly not surprising…politicians screw around all the time…on their wives AND their constituents.  But what IS interesting is actually reading the content of correspondence between he and his Lady Love.  Is NOTHING sacred?

Check it here at Gawker.  Here’s a snippet of one of his many now-public emails written to his Argentina Sweetie :

You have a particular grace and calm that I adore. You have a level of sophistication that so fitting with your beauty. I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night’s light – but hey, that would be going into sexual details …

“Sexual details”?  Are you kidding me?  Dude, when you are the Governor, you say this shit, you don’t write it.

    This man is smiling because Michael Jackson died. Mark Sanford is a forgotten man in the news cycle. His girlfriend could be a boyfriend with a 14 inch penis an a kilo of meth stuff up his but. It wouldn’t get an inch of copy.

    Michael Jackson gave us the gift of his music, he gave Mark Sanford the gift of anonymity.

    I think your tag of “stupid politicians” sums it up quite nicely, albeit redundantly.

    Phillybikeboy-Yes, I’m sad too. We’ve been playing Michael’s music in the offices all day.

    And, Jake-You Betcha! Sanford might even be “stoopider” than the ones we have in Illinois!

    Hey – in Illinois we are just happy someone else’s govenor is in the hot seat. And – very true about email. I teach a couple of colleges classes and am always cautioning my students that once it’s out here in cyberspace, it’s always out here. Better to make the phone call – or better yet to not say it at all.

    I was eating lunch when I read that lovey-dovey bit.

    The nausea may be from baby hormones, but I don’t think so…
