T-Rav T-Shirts - Get 'em While They're Hot!

FITS' mailbag was full of surprises today in the wake of uber-crybaby Terry Sullivan's latest hissy-fit in La Socialista (a.k.a. The State newspaper).

Hot on the heels of the 22-point drubbing his $2 million man received at the hands of GOP Treasurer nominee Thomas Ravenel, Sullivan went ape poo-poo yesterday against both Ravenel and SC GOP Chairman Katon Dawson, calling the former a liar and the latter an "idiot."

To Sullivan, who once jumped all over poor Tommy Windsor for calling Sen. Jim DeMint an idiot, all we at FITS can say is it takes one to know one, bo-bo.

Sullivan's gaffe did open the door to a brand new cottage industry, however, the "That's How Thomas Rolls" T-Shirt and bumper sticker business.

Seriously, how cool is this?

Our next Treasurer is not only a bad-ass fiscal conservative with impeccable business credentials and devastating good looks, he's also fluent in jive!

Kudos to Thomas for his big win and to the Quinn team for backing out of the Treasurer's race yesterday with class and dignity. It's a huge contrast to Team Ryberg's pathetic attack on Ravenel and consultant Warren Tompkins' inability to restrain his attack Shi-Tzu.

As Redfoot once said to Dean Keaton in The Usual Suspects, "better put a leash on that puppy."

Oh my gosh - where can we get one of those bumpers or t-shirts - you are so right Thomas is a bad-ass all the way around and he proved it in his handling of Team ryberg.

Will I expect you to send one of those shirts to me in the upstate. Maybe we should look at printing up shirts that say my treasurer is hotter than yours. Funny post.

I have met Terry Sullivan and think he's an OK guy. But a - savvy political operative - he is not. Sullivan and his running buddies - Thomas, Malryck & Wetzel have ridden Thomkins coattails and now it's showing.

So is Quinn officially out? I had heard he plans on challenging T-rav?

Gang-

We hear the flip side of the T-Shirt is going to show a picture of Ryberg saying "I spent $2 million on the Treasurer's race and all I got was this lousy T-Shirt."

Seriously, place your orders. They're $25 each.

We hear sic Willie himself is designing the shirts right now so e-mail him at w@viewpolitik.com if you want one!!!

You are correct. Terry Sullivan couldn't campaign his way out of a paper bag.

Funny no mention of RQA getting embarrased AGAIN. You would think Quinn could carry his former house district, but he lost AGAIN. I guess the coming Hunley expose will finish off RQA once and for all.

Thomas Ravenel is a phony and that is sure to come out. Sure he made his money, but not without Daddy being in the US Congress and having crazy name ID in the lowcountry. It also didn't hurt Daddy ran for guv (and lost) and then served in the Senate, and has his name on the largest construction project the state has ever encountered. The boy has name ID...very similiar to Mike Campbell...name ID will carry a lot of weight. Look, i know how T-Rav "rolls" cause I have rolled with him before. Smooth - yes, Wealthy - yes, Conceeded - yes, Womanizer, - Yes, Wears Tu-Tu's on trips to France - don't know. The truth will come out though. Hey don't get me wrong, he's not a bad guy to chase some skirt with, but Treasurer...what does building a Food Lion have to do with investing the state's money...unless it's in shopping centers. By no means would I vote for Ryberg, but he is more qualified than T-Rav, Rick the Copy Guy, and Willis the builder. So it's easy VOTE GRADY and keep a good thing. Then if we can get rid of Eckstrom and Sanford or Bobby & Hugh take a pick, but the first two would be nice, we'll get that AAA rating back. Funny how they point at the lone Democrat on the Budget & Control Board...when he's outnumbered 4-1.

Don't worry those photos will surface he will be as you say serviced and then we'll see how T-Rav rolls.

Dear "Let's Get it Right,"

You obviously have JW Ragley syndrome and are overcompensating for something.

We'll leave your rant up because it's amusing to see how pathetic some people are, but seriously, go start a Palmetto Voice blog or something.

Interesting matchup come November: T-Rav vs. Trav. Who'da thunk it?

Anon, T-rav vs. Trav is going to be the joke from now until november. I think all this talk really is a compliment to Trav and how good he really is. Forget T-rav, we are now going to see how Trav rolls.

"With Ryberg out of the way, it is now now T-Rav Vs. Trav in the General; let the fun begin."

i actually agree with some of what Lets Get It Right said. T-Rav has never been truly scrutinized as a candidate. The press or opposing campaigns never really paid attention to him during the Senate race b/c no one realized he was a threat until it was too late. Pretty much the same happened here. He got in the race at the last minute and was again never truly vetted by the press. There are plenty of stories to tell about T-Rav and its time that they are told so that voters can actually make an informed decision for once about the Rav. People are voting for Rav, not having any clue about his past and his present. Its time for some serious interviewing, op research, or whatever it takes for the truth to be told about this non golden boy.
