And Now?

It’s Primary Day in South Carolina (and elsewhere around the country), and now … what?

Will the Neanderthal politics of yesteryear still work in the Information Age?

Will this whole “Tea Party” movement prove to be the force of its potential or just another episode of “The Silent Majority?”

Will voices be heard or ignored?

Do rumors trump ideas?

Will 2010 be the start of something new and exciting in the Palmetto State, or will it be just another year of the same old?

Will history be made or will time just pass by?

Do voters really care or are they just gonna be milquetoast bystanders?

Will South Carolina become relevant or continue to be inconsequential?

Will there be light at the end of the tunnel, or just more tunnel?

Will the scoundrels be put on notice or will they be renewed?

As for the future, your task is not to foresee it, but to enable it.

  1. Get the pliers, pull the hooks out of you ass, get out and vote. We The People are going to send a message and shake up the good ole boys.


  2. “Cry ‘Havoc!’ and let slip the dogs of war!”

    Okay, maybe that’s overdoing it a bit. On the other hand, people have seen clearly how the establishment is waging a war of corruption on us and does not respect our power nor our intelligence.

    It’s time to get in their faces with our ballots. Hit them where it hurts!


  3. I’m excited about waking up tomorrow & seeing the answers to your questions. I hope, more than all, no more same ol’ same ol status quo!!!!

    I say leave Folks, Marchant, and Bauer tied up. They’ve pooped all over the state and need to stay on their leads for a while.


  5. The heavy turnout in Greenville County worries me. That is prime Huckabee territory and he backed Bauer. However, it would seem to be prime Palin territory, too. Greenville is notoriously late in reporting (plus they had some “glitches” up there, too), so it’s either going to be a nail-biter or Greenville will put Nikki over the top to avoid a runoff. I hope it’s the latter!


  6. WorkingTommyC – Thanks!

    I have two questions:

    Given Haley’s 49%, will Barrett pull out tomorrow and leave Haley as the GOP candidate?

    I’ve only lived in the Palmetto State for 16 of my 60 years and remain unaware of local courtesies and customs, so I have to ask what period of time is considered polite before we can apply tar and feathers to our soon-to-be former lieutenant governor and ride him out of state on a rail?

    Also, which state should we dump him in? In deciding I suggest that we find out what the fines are for littering in North Carolina and Georgia. I argue strenuously against dumping him in off the coast because 1) the rail will float, and 2) we don’t need to add additional tar to the Atlantic given the disaster in the Gulf…
