Via my buddy Megan Carpentier at Air America , Jenny Sanford is writing a book-an "inspirational memoir"-that sounds remarkably similar to Elizabeth Edwards' memory of coming back from a public humiliation, Resilience . Sanford's book will even be published by the same publisher, Random House. Jenny Sanford has always comported herself with dignity, and she seems like a smart enough, nice enough lady. But does she have anything to teach the world that Elizabeth didn't already cover? From her perspective, is it just about cashing in her hefty advance so that she can support her family?
In any event, Megan has the best zinger about the whole sordid situation: "Apparently, Edwards' book did well enough that Random House ordered the sequel."
