Egg-tooth Bared Briefly at Sanford Gas Tax Event

House Ways & Means Chairman Dan "Egg-tooth" Cooper attended a gubernatorial press conference at the State House today, briefly baring his trademark Maxillofacial (above, back right corner) as numerous other unsuspecting RINO's herded around Gov. Mark Sanford to show their support for his new gas tax proposal.

Cooper and the rest of the pictured RINO's (Mayor Bobby Harrell, Reps. Annette Young, Joan Brady, Ken Clark, Alan Clemmons, Bob Leach and Nathan Ballentine) apparently got their signals crossed with the Governor's Office (surprise, surprise) on the purpose of the event, evidently thinking they were attending a press conference to show their support for an increase in the gas tax.

FITS photographers were able to capture the precise moment when Gov. Sanford announced a temporary suspension of the gas tax instead, prompting the emergence of Cooper's now infamous tooth.

Revered USC Anthropologist and longtime Egg-tooth observer Dr. Spen Ding Adeekshun said today's appearance of the tooth measured only a 4.3 out of a possible 10 on the University's $18.4 million Egg-Tooth-O-Meter.

"Wee eexpect da beeg one to come dureeeng da budget committeeee," Dr. Adeekshun told FITS.

Dan Cooper is a fine husband and a great father. I don't understand why you have to pick on him for something that he can't help. Maybe you have teeth like baby alligators or chickens breaking out of their shells and that's why you write about him and his problem that his dentist says will just go away once his head just grows into his teeth.
