While everyone is fixated on the bizarro press conference held by South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford, we thought it might be fun to remember Fred Sanford.

You remember, Redd Foxx, the owner of the junkyard in the 1970s sitcom, "Sanford and Son." True, his son Lamont was lame. But Fred was funny. Hilarious, in fact. So we provided this video (below).
