The National Rifle Association is getting personal. In a new web video the gun lobby calls President Obama an "elitist hypocrite" for using the Secret Service to protect his two children, Sasha, age 11, and Malia, age 14.
Mark Sanford, he of the naked hiking on the Appalachian Trail–who knew it went all the way down to Brazil?–will supposedly announce tomorrow that he's running for Congress in South Carolina. There is no report as to whether or not his ex wife will vote for him at this time.
Sanford will announce via press release tomorrow; there will be no press conference or public events associated with it, according to an aide.
NBC previously reported that Sanford would attempt a political comeback running for his old first congressional district seat. Sanford would be running to replace Tim Scott, who was appointed to Jim DeMint's Senate seat.
Get the popcorn and the beer! This is gonna be fucking great!
UPDATE: We have the de riguer invocation of God's Will ™:
"I'm not saying it was God-ordained or anything like that," Sanford said, "but a series of rather miraculous events have coincided here, that did not escape the attention of the friends who were urging me to look at this."
God DOES love me, to give me such a show!
