    I knew SC’s governor Mark Sanford in college, as his dorm room was a few doors down the hall from mine. He always struck me as a not-that-bright rich kid. I think I may have overestimated his smarts.

    South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford (R) has completed his review of the recently enacted stimulus package and will be sending President Obama a letter in the next few days asking for permission to apply a quarter of South Carolina’s stimulus money, approximately $700 million, to paying down state debt rather than using the money to fund government programs.

    I have no doubt that Obama will tell Sanford to pound sand. Whether Sanford really is this dumb or is positioning himself for 2012 is irrelevant. It’s a stupid play no matter what. SC voters are watching.
