As the Blogosphere Turns

Sombody get us Lindsay Lohan on the phone, because the S.C. political blogosphere is turning into Mean Girls ...

We literally couldn't believe our eyes when we say this post from self-proclaimed "token liberal blogger" Roxanne Walker.

With about as much class as we should probably expect from someone who attended both Western Kentucky and USC-Spartanburg, Walker point blank called Crunchy GOP Girl Sunny Philips a "self absorbed bitch" for getting her (Walker's) name wrong during ETV's election night coverage.

Whoa!

Undeterred, Sunny responded by saying "Angry liberals like Roxanne are nothing new" and telling Walker to "keep your teasing and insults coming."

Ooooooo Goodie goodie gumdrops!

Now all we need for this to officially become FITS' "Best Week Ever" is for Laurin Manning to start suffering from some kind of online identity crisis ... wait a minute ...

Seriously, there is nothing like a good catfight to get the juices flowing ... and there is nothing like someone calling someone else a "self absorbed bitch" to get a good catfight started.

Of course, we were a tad disappointed upon visiting Roxanne Walker's website. It's not that you're liberal, honey. Or that you're mean. Or that your blog is not particularly well-written or interesting.

Not to put too fine a point on it, darling, but your problem is that you look a lot like Jakie Knotts.

And for God's sake, put some damn shoes on.

Yes, Sunny gets under our skin from time to time, too, Elizabeth ... er, Roxanne.

She's so friggin' cheerful all the time, for one thing, and when she starts blathering on and on about how great Katon Dawson is we literally get sick to our stomachs.

But a "self-absorbed bitch?" Hardly.

Currently, we'd have to give that blogger award to you.

THAT REMINDS US ...

FITS will be unveiling its Second Annual "Bloggie" Awards in this weekend's "Echo Chamber." If you thought last year was hilarious, wait 'till you see what we've got in store for your funny bone this go-round ...

Wil, don't get in the middle of this one unless you've got a trasnquilizer gun and large quantities of animal tranquilizers (for yourself once its over).

Now (sort of) in Roxanne's defense, if you think she looks like Jakie, it is time for a new pair of glasses. Granted election night she had what appeared to be a lawyer's scowl, as opposed to a symptomatic Alzheimer's scowl, she's still easier on the eyes than Jake Rino (or Mike Reino for that matter).

Wil, I'll grant that I can't be an arbiter for your own tastes, but I don't mind leaving a few punji stakes in the mosh pit.

Didn't you do some sort of superlatives last year before the legislature reconvened? I'm too lazy to look for it, but I'd like to see that again.

And has calves like Wahoo McDainels...

So of course Roxi Baby is a bitch.

Tammy baby,

You wound us to the core but we still got nothing but love for ya. We don't defend Sunny because of her politics (which we often loathe), we defend her because of her friendship (which we have always been able to count on).

You did serve us a little bit, though, so congratulations.

FITS honey,
wasn't trying to "wound" you by any means...just wish sunny wouldn't let it bother her so and wish Rox had not gone there...simply no need for it all. Especially knowing how all you boys love a good cat fight...

i do respect your respect for your friendship with sunny though...

And don't forget about Laurin Manning losing it because I posted a freakin link on her site. Good grief you would think it was the end of the world. She told me my posts are annoying and I'm not even worth reading.

She also said I was one of the reasons she was thinking about closing the site. Well good writtens that is one less liberal I got to worry about.

ROFLOL. God almighty...I almost blew diet coke through my nose when I read that...I'm surprised Lauren said you're not worth reading...

Tammy,

Here is the direct quote and link from Laurin Line:

"I read the stuff that's worth reading. Frankly, most of your stuff isn't."
