It Didn't Take Sherlock Holmes
... hell, John Holmes could have figured this one out.
Not that this will come as a shock to anybody, but the Shealys are indeed behind State Sen. Jakie Knotts' possible third party challenge to Gov. Mark Sanford.
According to the Blogland of Earl Capps, an e-mail was sent Friday to an undisclosed list of recipients urging them to collect diet recipes ... er, signatures ... for the Jakie Knotts for Governor campaign.
FITS has confirmed today that the e-mail was sent by none other than Rod Shealy, Jr.
So much for the theory that downballot Republican races like those of Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer and Treasurer candidate Thomas Ravenel (both of which Rod Shealy, Sr., is running) would be hurt by a weakened governor at the top of the ticket.
We'll have a lot more on the Jakie factor and its contribution to the further disintegration of an utterly clueless Republican Party in tomorrow's "Heard in the Echo Chamber," but for now it's safe to say that the Shealy assualt on the Governor's Office continues.
