There’s a side of me that thinks a governor heading down to Buenos Aires for a little “exoticism” isn’t all that important. On the other hand, every meal Obama has is viewed as a sign of possible weakness and when it came to scrutiny of Clinton’s every move…maybe reductio ad absurdium is the only way forward here.
Update. Commenter TGP explains what about this does matter:
The real story is not if he has a “little something on the side.” It is the fact that the state of SC had no effective executive in charge of the state for several days and NO ONE knew. The Lt Gov didn’t know, and evidently his staff had no idea the guy was out of pocket. Had he transferred executive powers to the Lt Gov it would be mere sensationalism. However silly the story may be on the surface this does require some investigation and possible legal proceedings by the state legislature.
