Great, now we’re outsourcing mistresses!

I’ll see that Jon Stewart take on “Hiking The Appalachian Trail” and raise you with Craig Ferguson’s take on how the jilted politician’s wives should be handed out a T-shirt when their husband gets elected, reading “I’m With Stupid”.

There’s more text, but it’s kind of icky to read any of these, and a bit weird to wonder how these emails became available, and so quickly.

State Rep. from South Carolina, Nikki Haley
State Rep. from South Carolina, Nikki Haley

Nikki Haley [website] is a wife, a mother of two children, and a State Representative in the South Carolina government from the Republican Party.

At this moment, there is every indication that Ms. Haley is a fine and upstanding Republican.
Ms. Haley apparently has never been to Argentina.
