Nixon on abortion:
“There are times when an abortion is necessary. I know that. When you have a black and a white,” he told an aide, before adding, “Or a rape.” (hear)
We now know what "Hiking the Appalachian Trail" is a euphemism for (here). There's problems with some of the video feeds of Sanford's presser, but from what I gathered he's a home-wrecker who struck up a relationship with a married woman having marital problems of her own. After some earnest talk about God's laws and her kids, things went in a bad direction. My initial reaction is that he seems like a scumbag, but Josh Marshall is giving him points for fessing up (here).
