: Govenor Sandford of S Carolina has given birth to a new euphemism for adultery.
: He skipped off to Argentina to see his girl friend. His absence was noted and, on return, he told his wife that he had 'been hiking the Appalachian trail'! It wasn't long before the actual truth came out and the new phrase born.
Yes, a phrase is born. Red State Update -- an online comedy team -- has done a video on it.
