Sanford's Book Deal Off

Yesterday, word came out that Gov. Mark Sanford had a book deal for a weighty, pre-admitting-to-crossing-lines, tome outlining his 'policy beliefs.' Hold your breath for it no longer: the deal's off.

From his publisher, Via The Page:

"Sentinel has agreed to release Governor Mark Sanford of South Carolina
from his contract to write a book about fiscal conservatism, which was
to be called WITHIN OUR MEANS and was scheduled for publication in March
2010. This is a mutual decision. We wish Governor Sanford the best."
