Sanford Or Steel: Can You Tell The Difference Between The SC Gov's Writing And A Romance Novel?

I think we can all agree that while the future holds many things for Mark Sanford, a career as a writer is not one of them. His emails to his Argentinian mistress were full of syrup and cliche, to a point that Jimmy Kimmel couldn't help but reenact them, Jimmy Fallon made karaoke out of them, and Conan couldn't tell the difference between his writing and that of Danielle Steel's.

Here's one of many terrible examples:

"I could digress and say that you have the ability to give magnificent gentle kisses, or that I love your tan lines or that I love the curve of your hips, the erotic beauty of you holding yourself (or two magnificent parts of yourself) in the faded glow of the night's light -- but hey, that would be going into sexual details..."

O'Brien made his sidekick, Andy Richter, guess as to who authored a series of passages like this last night. He had a little help from a pre-recorded Fabio, but all in all did pretty well considering.
