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.

Tough week for Suzanne Israel Tufts, the nice Trump campaign lady with no experience doing investigations who was almost appointed to oversee, or at least overlook, the Interior Department's four ongoing investigations into Ryan Zinke's "ethics," for want of a better word. Not only did she not get that nice job as acting inspector general after the media got hold of the story and everyone said it stank to high heaven, but Tufts, who had been employed at the Department of Housing and Urban Development, suddenly up and quit that job too late Friday. Pour out a 40 (gallon barrel of industrial waste, into a poor community's water source) for her, won't you?

Once again, the Trump administration is coming after birth control. Specifically, they are looking to issue rules that would roll back the Affordable Care Act mandate that requires that most employers provide insurance that covers it, which would leave god knows how many women across the country without access. The administration had previously attempted to eliminate this mandate last year, but said attempt was blocked by two federal judges on the grounds that doing so would cause "serious and irreparable harm."

But now they're trying again, because forcing people to have unwanted children just seems like a really fantastic time to them, I guess. If these rules manage to get passed, and if the Supreme Court overturns Roe v. Wade as it is expected to, the Right will soon be closer than ever to the future filled with barefoot and pregnant women making them sandwiches that they have always dreamed of. For the rest of us, it will be a pretty shitty time.
