The Big Secret Isn't Such a Big Secret, But Who Are We to Ruin the Surprise ?


If there's one thing we bloggers love, it's scooping a good story. There are few things that get us going than beating everyone else to the punch on the latest happenings. Especially when it happens in our own backyard....
Here is the news.... The Pee Dee Republicans have been circulating messages that there is a major announcement coming from Florence on Friday at lunchtime, and again in Columbia later that afternoon. What is it? They're not telling - it's a secret. While we hate to burst bubbles here, the fact is that anyone who knows even a modicum of local politics knows what the 'secret' is..... and have known for about 2 weeks.
So, what is it? We're not telling. We'll sit this one out, announce it with everyone else, and let you guys give us your reactions. Why spoil the surprise, right?

I assume its related to the emails you and I exchanged the other week when we were swapping scuttlebutt.

Ain't much of a secret , is it? Even die-hard Dems know...

Let's put it this way, if politicians seeking higher office held the Colonel's secret recipe of 11 herbs and spices, he really would have needed to put an addictive chemical in his chicken to make you crave it fortnightly in order to franchise.

Let me see. The National GOP is getting to be a Regional party. The SCGOP is a state party. The Pee Dee Gop is a Pee Dee Party/Florence party and the Florence GOP is a Pee Dee Party also. You know you guys are going to find yourself by yourself one day. Thats right the Pee Dee GOP is also a Sixth District party. We are going to start a Wyboo GOP party. In fact we have already been accused of that on Lake Marion. We are going to challenge the Pee Dee GOP to a game of Lemon Shots.

Maggie Glover announcing to run against Clyburn as a Republican?

Mike Reino said...

Good God, No! God thing you posted that as Anon - you might have to turn in youyr membership card for even suggesting that !! :)

Maggie as a Republican? I doubt she could spell Republican much less pronounce it! But it would be fun to watch a Democrat primary with those two trying to out play each other to the SC6 Democrat base. It would be better than the main event at Wrestlemania!! Clyburn would be the Junkyard Dawg and Maggie could be Scary Sherrie (sorry Sherrie). After they got through with each other any Republican nominee would look like Ric Flair. You know I may have hit on something there...teg

I like these - you guys have much more vivid imaginations than I do. Since it's only 8 hrs away, I'll give you a clue. If I were lookign ina mirror this is what I'd see.... Andre Bauer is running for Florence County Council.

Hmmm...a car rear-view mirror?
Not really an easy clue...

I dunno, I am going to guess Kris Crawford is running for Lt. Governor.
