Today Mark Sanford detailed his affair with an Argentinian woman, and even though we now know that he was forced into it, it's difficult not to kinda admire his candor in comparison to the brazenness of other busted politicians.

Again, Sanford was informed that a South Carolina paper was set to publish details they'd uncovered about the affair, including those hilarious emails, prior to his press conference, but looking back at other politicians who acted defiantly after being caught equally red-handed doing things they shouldn't have been doing, Sanford's emotional mea culpa was, well, kind of refreshing. When watching the entire thing, it was hard not to feel some twinge of sympathy for him, no? Especially when you look back at the four guys in this clip for a reminder of the absolute worst way for politicians to handle getting caught doing things they shouldn't have been doing.
