Self of the self is indeed the Self!

In the latest Republican scandal, South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford admitted he was cheating on his wife. The events leading up to the revealation were hilarious - first they said he was missing with neither his staff nor security guys nor wife and sons knowing where he was. Then it was revealed he was just taking a break hiking the Appalachian trails. Then it turned out he was seen in Atlanta, which is nowhere close to the Appalachians. And then it was revealed he was in Atlanta because he was flying back from Argentina. And then, in a bizarre press conference, he revealed that he had a lady friend in Buenos Aires and he had been unfaithful to his wife.

Which is all very amusing. But not as hilarious as this deconstruction by Rachel Maddow of some of the more WTF parts of what he said, one of them being "self of the self is indeed the self".
