Governor Mark Sanford compares himself to King David (yes, that King David) in order to explain why he's not resigning, and then says the first step to "pick[ing] up the pieces" is humility—all without a trace of irony.
I've been doing a lot of soul searching on that front, and, um, what I find interesting is the story of David, and the way in which he fell mightily; he fell in very, very significant ways, but then picked up the pieces and built from there. And it really began with…humility—humility toward others, humility in one's own spirit.
lol your fat lack of perspective

[ETA: Just to be clear, I don't think that anyone axiomatically needs to resign from public office over an infidelity. I do, however, think that someone who goes AWOL from his post for a week and charges taxpayers for international trips to get laid does. Sanford has a few more problems than a guy who gets caught with his pants down but does the job he was hired to do.]
