Kind of chuckled when I read an article by Bill Davis of the Statehouse Report. He’s listed a number of conservatives in the senate as the “Juicebox Caucus”. Stating that we have the “ability to swallow Sanford’s philosophical and political Kool-Aid.” I’m curious why he didn’t include Sen. Shane Massey (R-Edgefield) somewhere on this list. Also, since Bill refers to the patriotic citizens attending the tea parties as “animals“, how does he view the left side of the ideologue spectrum? Maybe next week?
Here’s an excerpt:
The first four are considered the most loyal of those loyal to Sanford: Tom Davis of Beaufort, Greg Ryberg of Aiken, Chip Campsen of Charleston, and Kevin Bryant of Anderson. The next five are members of the freshman class, and received some help or support from Sanford in their bids: Mick Mulvaney of Indian Land, Paul Shoopman of Grier, Shane Martin of Spartanburg, Michael Rose of Summerville in his second stint in the Senate, and Lee Bright from Roebuck.
And the remaining four usually side with the governor, but show a more independent streak than the loyalists: David Thomas of Greenville, Danny Verdin, the head of the Ag. Committee, of Laurens, Mike Fair, also of Greenville, and Larry Grooms of Bonneau.
BTW, orange is my favorite flavor of Kool-Aid. oh yeah, crash, bang, boom!
