Wait, there was one reporter. And two aides. Does that count? If so, the headline should read: “Three People Showed Up.”

Everyone has to start somewhere — even presidential candidates. But for Mark Sanford, who is making a quixotic challenge to Donald Trump for the GOP presidential nomination, things can only go up from here.

Sanford kicked off his impossible dream of a campaign yesterday in Philadelphia. This account, from the only reporter present, gives us a flavor of the absolute futility of Sanford’s effort….

“Nobody knows me in Philadelphia. I get it,” Sanford said. “I think in life we all do what we can do, what’s within our power to have an effect. So we’re just sort of moving along as we go along.”

That’s a campaign slogan for the new century. “Moving along as we go along. Elect Sanford to something.”

It sure won’t be the presidency.

    He had the bare minimum of smarts not to kick off his campaign here in South Carolina.

    A few years back, Sanford said he was going hiking on the Appalachian Trail and wanted to be alone. 2020 voters are just being respectful of that wish. You’re all alone on the Trail, Mark.
    You’re Welcome.
