A Children's Treasury Of Wacky Media Inquiries About Mark Sanford's Sexy Disappearance

News

For several days in late June, Mark Sanford spokesman Joel Sawyer had just about the worst job ever, having to deal with every national reporter and local legislator asking about Sanford's whereabouts -- which he did not know and could not find out, because Mark Sanford makes sure to turn off his cellphone when he's sexing Argentine Firecrackers, which is always. What hilarious e-mails did Sawyer receive during these mysterious times, from the terrible media, and Stephen Colbert? Thanks to asuccessful open records request from South Carolina's The State newspaper, we now present a Children's Treasury of several!


Ever wonder what intrepid reportorial mind games the Washington Post's Chris Cillizza uses to procure "The Fix" on a daily basis? He just asks, hey, brosef, what up playaaaa?

Stephen Colbert, meanwhile, writes in-character for portions of his media requests, because why not? He also offer to treat the story lightly, because he is a comedian who hosts a comedy show.

Fox News doesn't air comedy shows, however, so its correspondent had to maintain the station's rigorous journalistic ethics in a pitch, which may not even be a pitch, but is still very Objective:

Having known the Governor for years and even worked with him when he would host radio shows for me — I find this story and the media frenzy surrounding it to be absolutely ridiculous! Please give him my best.

More super-objective was the Washington Times staffer's pitch, which was essentially some guy screaming "WE HAVE AN INSANE CONSERVATIVE BIAS IN POLITICS."

A staffer with The Washington Times wrote in an e-mail that “if you all want to speak on this publicly, you’re welcome to Washington Times Radio. You know that you will be on friendly ground here!”

The point is, never send a private e-mail to Mark Sanford's office. Also, don't be an asshole.

And now for some very serious TUT TUTTING! It's time again for Republicans to make sad words about President Treason McTraitorpants selling out the country. This time they are seriously concerned, nay even deeply troubled, that Donald Trump would stand next to Vladimir Putin and pretend the Russians didn't hack the 2016 election. These patriotic Republicans are shocked, SHOCKED! Well, not, like, upset enough to do anything about it -- not with a fascist carpooler to jam into the Supreme Court. But they've got tweets, so it's all good!

Republicans are in a pickle. Midterms are coming up and the party in the White House usually loses seats in those elections. It doesn't help their chances that their guy Donald Trump frolics through fields holding hands with self-made Russian dictator and coincidental poisoner Vladimir Putin, who our own justice department believes attacked our mostly free elections and our true national monument, the Internet.

If you're as old as I am, you'll recall that back in the 1980s, the whole Republican brand involved not trusting the Ruskies, and they were especially disappointed when Kevin Costner turned out to be one in No Way Out. Now, the current Republican president is talking like some kind of crazy commie lib, bashing the FBI and giving the benefit of the doubt to a former KGB agent. During an interview Sunday where he wore a hat with "USA" in big letters on it, presumably so someone could easily return him if he got lost on the field trip, Trump went so far as to call the European Union a "foe" of his country, which if you believe his hat is supposedly the United States not Russia.
