Politics in Charleston
Don’t worry…this ain’t ma thang. My opinions are scattered and varied and I lose interest quickly.
However, I HAVE to mention how flooded Charleston has been with politics – especially in this past week!!! Ya see, the story goes that the winner of the South Carolina Republican Presidential Primary has gone on to win the nomination since 1980…so it’s all kind of a big deal around here. The Primary will be held this Saturday, January 21st, so the madness has been kicked into super high gear!
My Dad met Jon Huntsman for some waffles at Honeymoon Cafe on Daniel Island. He shook everyone’s hand. [This just in: Huntsman’s reportedly dropping out and endorsing Mitt Romney like.right.now.]
Both Mom and Dad went to Rick Santorum’s question-and-answer session at Daniel Island School.
My parents also went to Mike Huckabee’s forum at the College of Charleston’s Sottile Theatre in downtown Charleston. They said it was a lot of fun. I question their fun-o-meter, but they didn’t ask. Ha!
Romney, Santorum, Paul, Gingrich, and Perry will be in Myrtle Beach tonight for a debate and there will be one more debate in South Carolina on Thursday.
If Charleston gets a Ron Paul sighting, we’re there! But if I’m being honest, these kids know more about politics than I do…
So…serious question…will all of the commercials stop post-January 21st? Pretty please??
Did I lose you? Don’t worry – me talking politics is a major, circumstantial FLUKE!
p.s. Off to Starbucks for a celebratory we-have-a-Monday-off Frappucino. =)
p.s.s. I will catch up on responding to comments today…PROMISE!
