Tell a lie Saturday and you will be ashamed on Sunday.

The “missing” South Carolina governor, Mark Sanford, has finally ended the mystery over his bizarre week-long disappearance by confessing on live television to an affair. Seen as ultra-conservative and a potential GOP candidate for the 2012 presidential elections, he definitely has ruined his chances. (Ironically, he was a strong attacker of Bill Clinton‘s affair with Monica Lewinsky.)

Governor Mark Sanford is now facing pressure to resign and also to repay the state funds that he used for a trip to Argentina to see his mistress . At first, the word was that he was hiking somewhere along the 2,175-mile Appalachian Trail, which runs from Maine to Georgia. However, he was confronted by a reporter at Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport on his return from Buenos Aires. As the Arabs of Egypt say, “Tell a lie Saturday and you will be ashamed on Sunday.”
