Gervais S. Bridges' New Man-Crush
It's true ...
In case you haven't visited Barbecue and Politics lately, the saucy Gervais S. Bridges (a.k.a. Ross Shealy) appears to have dropped his man-crush on Will Folks in exchange for a new obession with libertarian extraordinaire and big-money school choice donor Howie Rich.
A crestfallen Sic Willie was overheard this morning complaining about the six consecutive posts Shealy has devoted to "exposing" Rich as, well, a staunch supporter of school choice who likes to put his millions where his mouth is.
Never minding where Mr. Shealy's mouth has been, apparently Sic Willie, who is clinically diagnosed with "Look at Me Syndrome," felt that six straight posts in a row was a bit much.
"He hasn't run my mug shot in months," Folks said.
The FITS mailbag is literally bursting at the seams from our little blog the other day on Horry County Republican diva Katherine Jenerette. In addition to generating a lot of political commentary (and a tinge of jealousy in some circles), we've had more than a few requests for additional pictures of the striking Gulf War vet who nearly ousted longtime status quo Senator Dick Elliot back in 2004.
FITS has since learned that Elliot is not planning on seeking re-election in 2008, and that Rep. Tracy Edge is currently not inclined to take on Jenerette for the GOP nomination.
Some say an immensely popular Democrat is considering a run for the seat, which we'll have more on in the coming days ...
At any rate, stay tuned for what is obviously going to be one incredibly hot State Senate race.
WHO IS HEATHER S.?
Another top query in the FITS mailbag this week has been the identity of FITS girl Heather S., who believe it or not exists in flesh and blood as opposed to merely being a figment bouncing around the spacious confines of Will Folks' head.
Many say she's House Judiciary hottie Heather Smith, who burst on the scene with a suprising No. 2 appearance on the entirely professional and non-demeaning "Babies with Back" list.
As much as Sic Willie would probably do anything in his inconsiderable power to make that true, it's probably past time we let Ms. Smith off the hook - it's not her.
But keep guessing ...
COMING THIS WEEK - THE NEW BACK PORCH
This week look for an article on the "new" Back Porch on Gervais, the downtown restaurant/bar that might as well have been a candidate for election this year given the unmitigated scorn it received at the hands of Warren-Tompkins-wanna-be and T-Rav blasphemer Terry Sullivan.
Hell, thanks to Sullivan, the place has actually been in Lee Bandy's column ... twice.
Politics aside, the Porch has undergone some major changes in recent months, with a new chef, menu and staff representing just the tip of the iceberg.
FITS will dish the N.Y.-style review and let you see for yourself just what we're talking about ...
