Cal Thomas Has Got Some ‘Splainin’ To Do

In his Friday column, Cal Thomas discussed how we all have a little Mark Sanford in us:

The first thing that should be acknowledged about South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford’s admission to an extramarital affair is that it could happen to any of us. That is not an excuse (and no, it has not happened to me, or to my wife). Every married person has heard the voice; the one that says you deserve something “better.” [emphasis added]

Most of us have wandering eyes and there’s nothing wrong with that.  Some marriages survive even when it’s other parts that are doing the wandering. To be human is to be fallible.  But my guess is that Thomas’ little voice that says “you deserve something better” reveals a lot more about him than it does about “every married person.”

Anyone want to bet Cal Thomas will be sleeping on the sofa this weekend?

    If my husband ever said his “little voice” said he deserved better, he’d be sleeping at his mother’s house. x^p

    If a husband thinks he deserves better, the marriage is probably over. I think Cal Thomas somehow imagined it was better to say he deserves better than to admit that every now and then he thinks, “Yeah, I’d like a piece of that.” Silly Cal.

    Thankfully, my husband at least has enough clue to not SAY something like that publicly. ;)

    Yeah, he’d be sleeping on the couch or I’d be telling his mother she’s getting him back if he took that tack, which to me would be the same as saying “you’re not good enough for me”.
