Well, it looks like Gov. Mark Sanford's marital healing needs a bit of work.

South Carolina first lady Jenny Sanford and her four sons vacated the Governor’s Mansion on Friday and returned to the couple’s Sullivan’s Island home, where she said they would live for the upcoming school year.

Jenny Sanford and at least seven other women spent several hours Friday packing up four sport utility vehicles.

Women carried armloads of clothing on hangers, boxes, a small appliance and other items to the cars. Much of the clothing had been stuffed into plastic bags.

His wife released this terse statement:

I am so thankful for the overwhelming support and prayers we have received from people all across South Carolina. I am literally in awe of how blessed we are to have such love and support from family and friends, old and new. It is with this support, and after much careful and prayerful consideration, that I have decided to move back to our home in Charleston with our sons for the upcoming school year. From there, we will work to continue the process of healing our family. While we will be leaving Columbia, we will return often, and I will remain engaged in activities in my role as first lady, acknowledging that my responsibilities to my family come first.

That was the polite Southern way of saying f*ck off, dirtbag. Come on, what else was she to do to retain any dignity as her husband (who, more pertinently as far as the public is concerned, abdicated his responsibility as governor when he went AWOL for nookie) referred to his concubine lady love as his "soulmate" in the same breath as he told the media that he's got to learn how to fall back in love with his wife again. Gee, that was a great way to win her face-saving support heart back.

Sanford's problem is that his pious tossing around of his Christian faith and the sanctity of marriage has blown up in his face and the people of the Palmetto State need to eject this former aspiring 2012 Clown Car occupant for incompetence and self-absorbed "sexual healing" at their expense.
