This is just sad.  Warning: I read the first two comments and could feel my blood pressure rising.

    Oh Sunshine. I love that name. I would absolutely have died if that had happened to me at that age, I know it. Oh well! I don’t even have a valid passport now, and whose fault is that? Sunshine’s? Gracie’s?

    It must be Gracie’s because I don’t have one, either.

    I am pretty sure if my golden ate my passport, I’d have a hard time staying mad at her. Pups are just too cute and they love us too much. Keely has been less into paper lately, and more into chipmunks. Ick. But still cute and loveable.

    Commenters on madison.com seem to be boneheaded and abrasive – on either side of issues. I’m not sure why I keep scrolling to read them, but I do.

    Looks like the DOJ reductions were restored for you!

    They were restored! Hooray! We’re all breathing a deep sigh of relief.

    It definitely is hard to stay mad at a pooch. But I’ve never been denied a high school trip to Peru because of one, so I’m not sure if that would test my dog-anger meter. I kinda think it might. Sometimes when Gracie does something really lousy, we dont’ talk to each other for a half hour or so. That’s about it.

    But Gracie would never eat a passport! Although, she might if she realized it would prevent you from being gone. Hmm… Maybe that pup was more calulating than I realized.

    I love the “Possibly Related Posts” for this one.

    Hee hee. They are funny. Open mind, blood pressure and McCain.

    Shall we discuss the crazy-ass antics the South Carolina governor has been engaged in? I think someone needs to check him into a hospital and put some duct tape over his mouth. The guy can’t shut up.

    Yeah, I am leaning “not fit to govern” on that guy. He seems perhaps like he’s having a breakdown. His statement that his feelings are the barrier to moving past all of this and getting his crap together – well, I am all for feelings, but COME ON, you’re bananas. The infidelity is troubling but doesn’t mean he should get ousted – it’s the recent immature/erratic behavior that is making me think he should resign. His poor kids, having to listen to him talk all about his Feelings, which made him miss Father’s Day.

    But if it weren’t for this scandal how would we have learned that “the biggest self of self is indeed self?”

    I agree that the cheating has nothing to do with whether he can govern. And although I’ve heard (from Terry) that apparently the governorship of SC doesn’t have a lot of power anyway, I think it’s time for this guy to go. If I had known him before all this, and thought he was a stable guy, I may be leaning toward mental break, but for all I know, this is how the guy always is.

    His judgment is off the charts whack-o. Disappearing to Argentina for days on end with no one knowing where he is is totally bonkers. But then talking to reporters like they are his friends is just plain insane. His poor, poor kids. And that wifey of his needs to file some papers pronto. How awful.

    Andy Roddick is through to the semis!

    OK- as usual, too late.

    A) The passport thing is a little crazy, but better in the US than out of it. Also they once let my dad on a plane to lord alone knows where after he’d washed his passport and it was completely coming apart. Good standards.

    B) I’m not in love with politicians who talk about their feelings/ soul mates/ personal problems. Especially after they mysteriously disappear to Argentina.

    But Sanford lucked out for a bit with the Michael Jackson news –took some of the heat off of him. If only he could have kept his mouth shut to avoid becoming front page news again so soon! My problem isn’t with the cheating either — or even the unwise babbling about his feelings — it’s the complete and utter hypocrisy. It’s the fact that he’s judged every other politician harshly for the same conduct and built his entire image around having family values and high moral standards. I just don’t see, having called for Clinton’s resignation, how he can retain any credibility by not insisting on his own. And it seems that he’s still lying about how many trips to Argentina?Makes for great news though.

    And although I’m a huge dog lover, not sure I’d be as cool about the passport thing. Esp. at that age!
