Ahh, Republicans and their bathroom antics.

Sanford then hid in a bathroom. When Chapur arrived, the waiter said she had won "a prize" for being the 100th customer of the day and handed her the bag, which she opened, finding the ring. Sanford then appeared.

How romantic.

*gag*

Seriously, lamest. Proposal. EVAH.

The live feed of his "Soul Mate" confession made for one of the greatest Fark threads ever.
 
2012-08-29 10:02:01 AM  
And a year from now, when his "soul mate" finds him involved with another woman, she's going to say "but how could it happen? He loves me!" and totally not understand that no, he doesn't. He loves being in love. Actually, he loves falling in love. Once he's married, the thrill is gone, so he'll go looking around again. And cheat on his former mistress with his new mistress. As Dear Abby says, a man who will cheat with you will cheat on you. She's marrying a guy who has proven that he's a liar and a cheater. She won't get what she wants; she'll get what she earned.

I remember that. For some kind of reason, he never said "she" until pretty late in the speech, so everybody was waiting for things to turn positively fabulous.

Don't cry for him, Argentina!

Most of the people posting on this page are the reason this country is in the state it is. You are narrow minded, wearing blinders, and could care less about ths country. It either has to be Democratic or Republican, no compromise, no meeting in the middle for the good of the people.
If some one in your party came out and said "If elected, I will place your children in Bondage and kill all the puppies and kettens. If he/she was running on your parties ticket, you would vote for them. You will follow a Judas Goat to slaughter.


I love the Internet...

THIS

CSB time: A former co-worker's wife divorced him and took the kids after she found out he was cheating on her with a stripper. While he was dating the stripper, he had a meticulous Excel spreadsheet to track all of the women he was trying to hook up with on various dating sites. Screen names, their real names, interests, any friendships with other women in the list, even a ranking system. Anyhow, after a couple of years, the stripper dumped him because she "couldn't trust him."

Gee, what was the first clue? Maybe the fact that he was cheating on his wife with you?

The paper said Sanford arrived early at the restaurant and gave "a bag with the (engagement) ring to one of the waiters," asking him to "to invent a good story for his girlfriend."

He certainly put a lot of thought into it.
 
2012-08-29 10:39:40 AM  
I remember when they released his love letters to her and they weren't even really salacious. It was like reading love letters your dad wrote to your mom, and then it felt kind of awkward and wrong to be reading them. At that point I decided that maybe they could potentially actually be in love for real. I guess time will tell if he's a serial cheater as people are assuming, but I hope he's not. Sometimes people marry the wrong person.

/Actually from what I've seen of Fark, most people around here think marriage is a mistake with anyone

Well, if this makes him happy, good for him, I guess.

I was thinking the same thing.

Well, last time he came up with "hiking the Appalachian trail." I could see why he might want to get some assistance.

No, just with anyone I've been married to.

But yeah, I do not really predict a happily ever after for these two.
 
2012-08-29 11:24:14 AM  
It's the classic "man meets younger woman, farks around on his wife with her, makes up some bullshiat story to cover up the infidelity, gets caught, dumps his wife, then proceeds to celebrate the sanctity of marriage by proposing to his girlfriend" story.

Sweet.

I loved the comment by his now ex-wife. "I didn't think he had it in him"

Well, he didn't have it in you so where do you think it was going?

If she has a good lawyer negotiate the pre-nup, what she earns out of this could be quite substantial.

I met this idiot once and knew he was a moron right off the bat. But I had no idea he was an immature moron. That's no way for a grown man to ask a woman to marry him. It would be a good way to ask someone to the prom, though.

Our last great export may be pretentious narcissistic jackasses. It appears that's the one thing we still do well. Now if we could just send them somewhere else and stop electing them.

I had a friend standing right to his side on some cameras during that, and he visibly gulps, laughs, and starts texting right after the whole confession.
