I could use a couple days off, too

South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford is due back in his office today, about a week after disappearing.

Following the bruising legislative session, Sanford (seen measuring something at right) apparently drove his SUV to a trailhead and went for a hike on the Appalachain Trail. He didn't tell his staff where he was, nor his wife, and he wasn't home for Father's Day.

It remains unclear who was running the state in Sanford's absence, but as a former South Carolina resident, I can say that no government might be better than the one that exists there.

UPDATE: Sanford was apparently in Argentina, not hiking the AT. What is he, moonlighting as a Nazi hunter?

I'd take a spot in the New York State Lock and Key Legislature.

Now reports are out that he was in Argentina. Just more proof that SC (and people from the state) are just nuts.

I'm sure you can relate, Mr. Naturalbl0g. :)

It has been said that Mark's party is in the wilderness. Literally.
