Show us, Drew

In last night's Comptroller General debate, Democratic candidate Drew Theodore singled out our own Sic Willie (and the rest of the FITS girls, for that matter) for "attacking his family" and "attacking his father."

We're not exactly sure what Mr. Theodore is talking about.

Perhaps it was a deflection technique given that during last night's debate, voters learned for the first time that two of Mr. Theodore's businesses have been dissolved by the Secretary of State's office.

Mr. Theodore called the charge a "lie," but the Eckstrom campaign has the documentation to prove it.

In that spirit of fairness, we'd now like to give Mr. Theodore a chance to show us he's actually telling the truth for a change. Specifically, we'd like to know when and where we have written anything on this blog (or anywhere else, for that matter) specifically attacking his family.

Seriously, Drew, show us. You went on television last night and accused us of doing just that, so we naturally assume you've got some proof to back that claim up.

Hopefully, you weren't speaking to a statewide audience and making stuff up about us with no supporting documentation, because that would be the definition of a "reckless disregard for the truth" and our lawyers really don't appreciate that sort of thing.

There's no doubt that we've had some fun at "Drew T's" expense, but we've also had some fun at Gen. Eckstrom's expense too. In case you haven't noticed, we have fun at everybody's expense. That's the purpose of entertainment.

So show us, Drew.

And in the event you can't, how about doing us all a favor and putting a sock in it.

Last nights debate showed Drew Theodore is the Forrest Gump of SC politics. He was unable to reach, maintain and project a thought. He could not find the camera. Some of his sentences…just did not make any sense. And lastly…during the CLOSING ARGUMENT…he launched a cowardly attack on Eckstom and Folks, neither of which had the opportunity to defend themselves.

I have not paid much thought to this race. I was voting for Eckstom…and I assumed Theodore to be credible. What a misjudgment on my part. Grab the Shepard’s crook and pull this loser off the stage now before he makes an even bigger fool out of himself.

His father was a man of moderate abilities, but he understood the old adage “better to keep you mouth shut an be thought a fool, as opposed to opening it and being known a fool”. Drew DESPERATLY needs to learn this lesson.

Maybe you did make fun of his father...and just did not know it. You did give Jakie Knotts hell!

Drew revealed his dark side in last night's debate. He very nearly flew off the handle. With such a short fuse, I would'nt be surprised to see a total melt down before November 7th.

On the other hand, Mr. Eckstrom remained calm and even tempered.

Eckstrom may be a bit boring and wonkish, but he's not going to get in a fist fight with some citizen or voter who might challenge him on an issue.

It seems that Drew has had plenty of time to produce the evidence to back up his claims...but nothing.

His attack was cowardly ...and rather stupid as well.

Is there anyone who actually knows what happened between Eckstrom and the woman he settled with? I never hear anyone defend him on that and if the actual facts are defendable in some way, I'd like to hear what they are.

You should really put the "the" back in Faith in THE Sound. You can't be FITS without the "the". So please put it back in. It's driving me nuts.

3D ought to be running against Mike Campbell, best of three falls WWF cage match style. Perhaps we could have Columbia's wrasslin Diva, the Fabulous Moolah referee and deliver the coup de grace if needed and Charleston's Mike Mooneyhan deliver the ringside commentary...

Will, you aren't the one that tried to pull a Sandy Berger and delete the wenching and armpit of the world posts by any chance?

That would be shameful, though I think that Drew did look like Clinton following a Carville script on Fox News' Sunday Morning broadcast a few weeks back.
