This week saw coverage of the Iran revolution overtaken by coverage of the Argentina revelation. It was at once utterly familiar (GOP family values hypocrite hoisted on his own, uh, petard) and utterly unique ("Appalachian Trail," "tan lines," and "Don't Cry for Me, Argentina" jokes will never be the same). Sanford's TMI press conference, in which he repeatedly spoke of the role his heart played in things, was the most disheartening use of that vital organ since Woody Allen tried to explain away his relationship with his lover's daughter by saying, "The heart wants what the heart wants." This week also brought the passing of the King of Pop, Charlie's favorite Angel, and TV's greatest second banana. Rest In Peace.
