You'd be laughing too if you had duped everyone into thinking you were honest.........
Had enough yet people? Actually, I am a bit stunned that Katon Dawson put out a press release about Jim - it's a rarity. Maybe he realizes that taking this crook on instead of play concede and submit works better. Yes, I said crook. The man hasn't made a dollar that wasn't paid for by your taxes his entire life, all to build his own temple of personal power. A Taj Mahal to himself!
Don't believe me. Look at everything that has gone on this year since he became Whip. Everything has been aimed at self-promotion. Every news report makes it sound like whoever he endorses is a magic coronation from God himself. And all the while, the 6th District has lost it's representation. Oh, he's still in DC, but multitasking is clearly not is forte. All his focus is on being Whip, and powerbrokering for his own benefit. Look at the numbers for projects in the 6th District - Lake Marion Water Authority, on life support.......... Clyburn Connector, dead. By the way, it's a very good week for politicians pushing bridges to nowhere........
Now he talks about Iraq in terms of what is bad or good for the Democrats ??? It gives you a good idea of where his priorities lie. This Whip gig has gone to his head, and every issue now is dealt in terms of 'how can i maximize this for my Party?' Real Nice.
Jim likes to think of himself as an astute, well-spoken and intelligent man, but he overestimates himself. He stuck a Size 16 Dress Shoe into that well-spoken mouth of his. Is it any surprise that NO ONE trusts Congress?? Iraq is not a game... It is not a political football........ It is an issue that affects people's lives today, and the shape of our world in the future from now on!!
Can we please have a candidate to challenge, question and call out Jim Clyburn? Can we find one person with the guts to say what we all know - that our Congressman has lost his way more than ever. That we all know his main focus is to put himself in position for the Secretary of Transportation post if a Democrat is elected next year. All signs point that way, as long as you are paying attention. Or maybe, in these days of "Bring Home the Pork", all we care about is how high up the power chart they are.

The following is a true story........................
As you read previously, National Action Network Chair Al Sharpton is on the warpath to discourage the use of the word 'ho'. Santa Claus has already changed his tagline to 'Hey, hey ,hey", and we had other examples. Well, Sharpton has an uphill battle on his hands...
It seems that African-Americans are using the term 'Hoe' for something even I never heard before........ The Chevy Tahoe. On Saturday, I had a customer (female A-A), and on the back window was "My Hoe". Yes, she hets asked a lot about it, but she says she's keeping it on her window. More power to her !!
I can understand. I used to call my old Toyota 'Camry Diaz'. But, I never called her a hoe...... or a Ho. Any stupid names you eve had for a car? Sure, it has nothing to do with politics, but hey, it's the weekend....
I saw a Yahoo piece about Scott Baio while at work today, and the amount of high-grade A lit women that this guy has dated is truly amazing...... Sure, everyone knows he went out with Erin Moran during their "Joanie Loves Chachi" days, and a lot of us know that Baio went out with Pam Anderson when she was a nobody. Well, Yahoo had a list, and it is truly impressive - even compared to chicks that Moye has dated! In addition to Moran and Anderson, here are a few more to consider....
Julie McCullough. In case you forgot her, she was the hottie on Growing Pains that got fired after Kirk Cameron couldn't take that she did a Playboy spread. Do you know why Kirk Cameron is gay? THAT'S WHY.
Erika Eleniak. The original hottie from Baywatch.
Heather Locklear. Yep, before she got hooked on Rock Stars, she hooked up with Charles in Charge !!
Natalie Raitano. The little brunette from VIP. Guess Pam gave him a good review...
Not impressed? How about adding Nicole Eggert, Denise Richards, Alyssa Milano, Nicolette Sheridan, Beverly D'Angelo, Leslie Anne Warren, Jeannette Jonsson and Connie Woods ? Honestly, I don't know the last two, but they both look pretty good.
Still going at 45, Baio is starring in a reality show on VH-1 , "Scott Baio is 45... And Single", where he is forced to rehash his bad-boy days with his ex's to figure out what he is doing wrong.....If what he had is wrong , i don't wanna be right !!
BAIO IS GOD !!!!

In a recent post, Bobby left one of his famous long diatribes at all things political, and once again, he ended it by complaining about President Bush. In it, he had a neat little equation about politics that I personally hadn't seen before. Then, after I read it, I had Bobby killed. I kid, I kid........
It's short, but it has a lot of truth to it. So, without further adieu, I give that theory to you....
The opposite of Pro is Con.
Therefore, what is the opposite of Progress?? CONGRESS.
So simple, yet so true.

Above - Bill Clinton, dreaming of someone else, and Hillary, wishing she were ANYWHERE else.....
We all know that those poor Clintons are caught in a loveless marriage of convenience. There are few things worse in life than being clamped onto a spouse that you don't love, and worse, having to perform PDA's to 'show your love'.
We're not gonna list the entire evidenciary pile here, but I've noticed a little example that seems to occur everytime I see the Clintons in public - especially on their recent tour... It's real simple. Watch them when they meet each other. Bill will hug Hillary, maybe try a peck on the cheek. Hillary?? She smiles, but she won't even fake kissing him. There is some real anger there, folks....
Maybe she doesn't know that they make lipstick that doesn't rub off now....... And maybe she still hates Bill for getting a little action in the Oval Office, among numerous other places. Or perhaps Hill has discovered the love that dare not speak it's name, and she is repulsed by Bill and his Peironi Pepperoni. I have no idea, but next time they're on the campaign trail, check it out - it's pretty Hill-larious..

Break Out the Alka-Seltzer....... Kobayashi Tops His Own Record by Eating 63 Dogs....... And Still Loses !!
We're proud to report that the Nathan's Hot Dog Eating Contest Champ is once again an American. Joey Chestnut, a college student from California, munched and contorted his way through 66 hot dogs and buns in a mere 12 minutes!!
If you have never seen this event before, it must be experienced. It was on ESPN today, and it had all the pageantry and tension of the Super Bowl. Watching it is like reading the stock ticker as Chestnut and Kobayashi quickly showed them to be the ones to beat. In the last minute, the two were literally neck and neck, but Kobayashi nearly puked up a mouthful of the garlicky dogs, and at the end, it was clear that Chestnut had won.
Joey Chestnut............... A true American Hero !

SC6 Celebrates Independence Day.. Mr. Clyburn, Please Read Below for What the "Basic Tenets" of America Actually Were.
"It's nice, Thomas....... But where is the part about Affirmative Action?"
Like most holidays, we Americans forget the reason we have the day off. So, we here at SC6 are hoping that you take just a second to remember WHY we celebrate the 4th of July. It's not about hot dogs, hamburgers, beer and fireworks..... Trust me, those last two don't go together very well!
Nope, we have off to commemorate the day a group of men , tired of being treated as unequals while still taxed as equals, stood up against a King 3000 miles away, and demanded equality.....EQUALITY , not special treatment. If you want special treatment, move to Quebec ! If you think otherwise, let's go back and read the text............
We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness. — That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that Governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shewn that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security. — Such has been the patient sufferance of these Colonies; and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government........
Sure, these were a bunch of white guys, many of whom owned slaves. They were human - not perfect. Room was made to correct any inequities that might have existed when the Declaration was written, and these amendments leveled the disparities to give people the opportunity to be equal. Somehow, our leaders have lost that sense of equality. Reparations, Affirmative Action, Quotas........ These are terms that are incorrect, misguided , and - dare I say - Un-American.
Of course, my argument is falling on deaf and paid-for ears. Maybe if politicians voted how they felt, rather than who's paying for them, our country would probably solve it's problems faster. That's not the American way , is it? Imagine if Clyburn and I had the same campaign budget.... Hey, I can dream .....
Happy Indepenence Day!!
Pardon Me As I Sound a Lot Like Sunny Philips..... Rudy Wins the GOP Fundraising Battle This Quarter..
Looks Like Rudy's Got a Little Extra Lettuce on That Hero.. Or is it a Sub.. Or Grinder... Or Hoagie ????
Ah, the first week of July...... When beancounters like our beloved Sunny wait with eager anticipation for those candidate fundraising reports. I never got very excited about them when I ran - adding up all those zero's wasn't much fun. Now I know how Ron Paul feels - or Jim Gilmore or Sam Brownback.
For those of you who care, my man Rudy Giuliani ran away with the fundraising battle this quarter, raising $15 Million for the primary and $2M more for the general election. Mitt Romney raised $14M, but if you peek a bit closer, the numbers aren't a s good as they look. M-Rom gave a personal check for $6.5M to the campaign, so he actually only raised $7.5M.. It looks like Romney has his own 401k matching plan. I wish I got a 85% match !!
John McCain actually beat Romney by raising $11.2 M, but most people are treating this as a disappointment. True, he is laying off 50 employees, and others are now working for free or reduced salaries, but I wouldn't write him off yet. McCain will now be leaner and meaner - but those cement shoes he has on his feet from the Immigration debate are pretty heavy. Is this talk breaking Reagan's 11th Commandment ?
Now, someone's name is missing: Fred Thompson. By next Quarter, he will be, so this will be one to watch. My prediction? Thompson will win. Thousands of his supporters are just sitting there , waiting for the announcement so they can send money. Thompson better win. If he doesn't , he will be in big trouble financially. Giuliani has $18 Mill IN THE BANK, with NO DEBT !! Paying for that startup will eat up a lot of Thompson's cash. Money in politics is like money in life - it isn't everything, but you need a certain amount of it to be comfortable....
Speaking of comfortable, those Dems sure are raising a boatload of cash! The question is: How much of that will be left after the Primaries? We all know Dems don't think much about saving for the future. That reminds me....... what ever happened to that Amerislave.. I mean Amerisave program of Nancy Pelosi's ????

Wow! Less than a week out of jail, and Paris Hilton already has her first Erection 2008 Candidate report done. Maybe she IS turning over a new leaf, but from that tape I saw, I kinda liked it when she turned over..... UGH !!!
SC6: Paris, before you give your first report, tell us - What was it like doing Larry King Live??
PH: He smells like Vapo-Rub.
SC6: Yeah, i've heard that before...... Were you worried about what questions he might ask?
PH: Not really.. like, my Mom and Dad already told him what he could and couldn't ask before the taping...
SC6: Gotcha.. I love a good game of softball when i know I'm gonna win before the game too.. So, tell us about Sam Brownback...
PH: Brownback Mountain?? I LOVE that movie !! Heath Ledger is a hottie , and Jake Gyllenh.... uh, that other guy has the sexiest eyes! I didn't like it when they kissed in that film, but I've seen worse. Did you ever see Cameron Diaz at a Red Carpet event? Who's her designer, Gianni Versucky?? it's like, 'Look, I weigh 60 pounds , I haven't seen daylight in a year, and I shop at Big Lots'.....
SC6: Paris sweetie, that's Brokeback Mountain.... We're talking about Senator Sam BROWN-back from Kansas. He's running for President.
PH: Whaaaaaat ? Who's he?
SC6: Ok, we'll help you.... Some people say that his candidacy is impotent now, because his views are similar to first tier candidate Fred Thompson. What's the real story?
PH: Fred?!! Ha, ha! Back when I was a kid, Nicky and I used to hang out and go clubbing in the Hamptons, and we'd dance to 'I'm Too Sexy' and drink Long Island Iced Teas all night !!
SC6: That's Right Said Fred, not Fred Thompson....... and weren't you like 12 when that song came out?
SC6: The train is way off track here, Paris . What about Sam Brownback ??
PH: Uh, whoever he is, he needs a new publicist, 'cause nobody I know has heard of him. Might I suggest Lizzie Grubman, or that guy from 'Entourage'....... They Rock !
SC6: Well, it took awhile, but in the end, Paris is right on the ball......... Ahem.. Stay tuned for Paris' next report on the Presidential candidates as Erection 2008: The Candidates With a Hard-On for the Presidency ( Except One) continues.............
If you live in Dorchester or Berkeley Counties, and you can vote in the SC Senate race Tuesday (something about 90% of you eligible didn't do), get out and vote for Rep. Shirley Hinson to replace the late Bill Mescher.
I met Bill Mescher a few times, and I consider him to be a friend. He was always willing to put his name out for me, and he was a sensible guy in Columbia. More importantly, several people I know well were very close with Bill, and they are for Hinson. They would know best who would fill his shoes, and in their opinions, Shirley Hinson is the person for the job.
Of course, I have met Shirley several times at GOP functions, and she seems pretty well respected, and she was supportive for what I was trying back in my glory days. Sure, there was a lot of hubbub when she ran against her ex, but that is long over, and those who were working against her now are working for her - that says a lot.
Honestly, I don't know much about the other guy running. Word is that he is for the selling of Santee Cooper, something that Mescher , a board member of Santee Cooper, would never go for. We all know that Gov. Sanford has tried in the past to sell the utility, and I am a supporter of him. However, I'm not obligated to agree 100% with someone I support, and I don't think selling it is in the state interest right now. Santee has big plans the next few years, including a $1 Billion investment in Kingsburg, and I would rather see any sale happen after the investments are complete. That's a blog post for another day...
Choose Hinson as the lesser of two evils?? Who knows.. All I know is the ones who knew Bill Mescher best say Shirley Hinson in the right one on Tuesday, so get out and vote, and bring a friend!
