Sanford’s Former CoS Makes Argentina-Pope Joke, Wins Twitter

Posted March 13, 2013 at 4:15pm

Remember former South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford? The Republican one, the one who’s running for the Palmetto State’s 1st District seat? He made quite a splash when his gubernatorial staff lost him somewhere on the Appalachian Trail and he popped up again with his mistress in Argentina. 

Today, just after the brand-spanking-new Pope Francis I (nee Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio) was announced, Sanford’s former chief of staff Scott English tweeted: “See, nobody complains when the College of Cardinals goes to Argentina.”

He rounded the tweet off with a #marksanford hashtag.

We’re calling it: English won Twitter.
