Governors Pataki, Sanford Getting Their Bog On in Horry
Not one, but two of America's most fiscally-conservative governors will be in Horry County this evening for the 12th Annual Elephant Stampede "Bog-off," an event sponsored each year by the Myrtle Beach Republican Women.
Joining our own Gov. Mark Sanford will be New York Gov. George Pataki, a possible 2008 GOP Presidential contender, as well as a veritable slew of other statewide and local candidates.
Pataki, who has yet to say definitively whether he's running for President or not, has nonetheless developed potent grassroot networks in early decision states like Iowa and New Hampshire. Tonight marks his first major visit to the Palmetto State, a chance for him to size up our various "Chicken Bog" recipes while we in turn size up, well, him.
In addition to Pataki's visit, a straw poll will be taken at the event on statewide contests that organizers claim has correctly predicted the like, uh, winner, in like, uh, each race in like, uh, every year, like, since its inception over a decade ago, or like, something.
Of course, to find out who's really going to win, you'll have to wait for FITS "2006 Primary Endorsements and Prognostications," scheduled to be released next week.
