Katon's Wikipedia Page And Other Musings
We've got to hand it to the good folks over at Wikipedia for hitting the proverbial nail on the head in describing South Carolina Republican Party Chairman Katon Dawson.
In case you haven't visited Mr. Dawson's Wikipedia page lately (we've got a thrice-daily habit ourselves), we'll save you the trip and republish the entry in its entirety:
"Katon Dawson is Chairman of the South Carolina Republican Party. He lives in Columbia. He owns an auto parts store."
Yup, thatta 'bout sums it up.
And while we were tempted to open a Wikipedia account (a la Morton Brilliant) just to poke (post) a little fun at the chairman's expense, what more can you really say about the Forrest Gump of Palmetto Politics?
He is the chairman. He does live in Columbia. And yes, he does sell auto parts.
Dawson deserves kudos this week, however, for finally bringing someone on board at party headquarters with an IQ higher than 70 points.
The addition of former Sanford and DeMint campaign aide Kara Borie is a quantum leap forward for the SCGOP apparatus in terms of intelligence, political savvy and sound, fiscal conservative moorings.
And while the same probably could have been said had the party hired a semi-literate pipe fitter to replace the barely literate J.W. Ragley, Borie's statewide and national experience, diverse skill set and seemingly endless reservoir of contacts nonetheless gives the party a potent weapon for 2006.
Borie, who can incidentally fill a little black (or red) dress with the best of 'em, is well on her way to becoming one of the most sought-after political operatives of the 2008 election cycle.
2006 FALL FASHION UPDATE
We are pleased to report that FITS girl Stephanie S. is hard at work on our first annual "FITS Fall Fashion Preview," which should be available for your consumption within the next week or two - just in time for bargain-hunting the sale racks along Devine Street.
And while we're sure all the gals at the State House are eagerly awaiting our pearls of wisdom, odds are that the members of the "Metrosexual Lobbyist Caucus" (Larry Marchant, Ed Givens and Michael Gunn) will be the ones glued to their fancy Treo cell phones for hours on end upon its release.
Don't worry Larry, Ed and Michael, we'll be sure to e-mail you an advance copy!
