As Mark Twain wrote, "truth is stranger than fiction." In fact, truth can also be much funnier and often more surreal. Such is the case in the new comedy Tail! Spin!
Having to deal with your former husband's cheating in such a public way must have been awful, Jenny. But to still be dragging him to court five years after you filed for divorce speaks more about you now than him, quite honestly.
Jenny Sanford, the former wife of Rep. Mark Sanford (R-S.C.), offered words of sympathy to Huma Abedin, whose husband Anthony Weiner admitted Tuesday to sending sexually explicit messages to a woman over the internet two years after a similar scandal led him to resign from Congress.
Huma's decision to forgive her husband should not be subject to criticism. It's her right and, indeed, may be a very admirable choice for her family. However, her timing, her choice of venue, and her complicity in her husband's spectacle has made her unrelatable to millions of everyday women.
What's wrong with this picture? Judging from the outcome of Tuesday's contest, it seems that Sanford, South Carolina's devout citizens and God herself surely work in very mysterious ways.... (Anthony Weiner and Elliot Spitzer, are you listening?)
Court documents related to Mark and Jenny Sanford's divorce have focused almost entirely on the complaint filed by Jenny Sanford alleging that her ex-husband had trespassed on her property. The other court documents leaked to the press, however, have largely been ignored.
