Intelligent New Blog - Dems, Pay Attention
When FITS first saw the name of the blog "Me and My Diet Coke," we figured it was the handiwork of powerful Charleston Senator Glenn McConnell's first mate on the H.L. Hunley, John Hazzard.
For those of you unfamiliar with Mr. Hazzard, you had better get to know him soon. He's been drinking about a dozen Diet Coke's every single day for the past decade-and-a-half so we're guessing his stomach lining is probably going to give out sometime within the next two to three months.
At any rate, FITS clicked on the site and was pleasantly surprised by what we found. Manned (or womanned, as it turns out) by a young female Democrat who calls herself CCS, "Me and My Diet Coke" is actually one of the smarter, sassier and politically astute blogs out there - very much in the same vein as the oft-celebrated Laurin Line.
Sister CCS does tilt a bit more to the left than Laurin, our beloved Queen of the SC Blogosphere, but the content on her site does include a Laurin-esque mix of political commentary, social and cultural musings and those random everyday occurances that make life what it is - pretty much random.
Plus, she's a very good writer.
Democrats running for office in South Carolina, who at present have managed to come up with precisely one idea after a solid year on the campaign trail (Dr. Oscar Lovelace's cigarette tax increase), would be wise to bookmark "Me and My Diet Coke" as a must-read SC Political Blog.
