This certainly was convenient for Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer. How many times does somebody have the courtesy to wreck his or her vehicle right in front of a campaigning politician, allowing him to come to the rescue?
This, on the other hand, had to have been embarrassing for Gov. Mark Sanford. (And the story was on CNN's homepage earlier today. I have so many reasons to be proud to be a South Carolinian.)
(Note: I don't actually dislike Gov. Sanford. This incident was just too funny to not remark upon.)
