Thanks to everybody who took the time to read and react.

I guess working for John McCain for President takes up too much time to post hit pieces on Mitt Romney.

McCain or any 2008 candidate will never hire Folkss. He comes with built-in negative press stories bcause of CDV convistion. SC media is done with him and thnkafully now so are wee but any nationwide candidate campaign would get slapped pretty goof for hiring Folks. I suspect he has taken a job in the TReasurers office with T-Rav

Kudos on a well-written blog that was consistently entertaining and managed to break a story or two. The S.C. political scene won't be the same without your two cents, but I wish you well in whatever endeavor you take on next.

Good lord people Will Folks is an asshole who did NOTHING but attack people who did not agree with his right wing views on ANYTHING.

Will:

Rarely did I agree with your political commentary but depriving us of your comedic stylings is criminal.

I fancy myself a writer but you have a gift, and one which will be sorely missed at that.

May you experience continued success in all your endeavors.

This is one of four things-

A) Will got hired by a presidential campaign

B) Will is going to work for Thomas Ravenel

C) Will is going to go start up another blog where we will all figure out it is him in under a week

D) There is some female involved in this situation

I got 3 to 1 on anybody betting against D.

Is there anyone commenting on this blog who has any grasp of either spelling or grammar?
With Wilbur, there's always a female involved. And Ashley is too smart to go there again.

Goodbye. Thanks for the most entertaining, well written blog in the SC blogosphere. Now we are stuck with the Laurinline and the Crunchy Republican...neither of which holds a candle to this blog.

Hope to see you back soon.

I will miss your exposing the failing schools/status quo that is eating our tax dollars, while the Educrats rig elections and the liberal media does nothing. The indocrination centers of the Education Establishment will be stopped, in part thanks to you Will.

OMG...25 anonymous comments?!? I know people say you write your own comments, but damn...25? I just can't believe that. Then again, I can be naive like that.

But, wow. I'm kinda sad. I do enjoy reading. Very few blogs I can say that about, but you're the only R leaning one that struck my fancy...that is for sure.

Good luck though. Stay out of trouble. :-) And do touchbase for drinks when in Upstate. Open invitation stands.

take care,

Thanks Will. Good show. Though I disagree with some of what you say and more often the way you say it, I totally agree with you on one very important matter: the spelling of “ya’ll.”

"Ya'll" should be the correct spelling. First, defense of the contraction. In the English language, we don't utilize what Greek and Latin have with second person plural. Only in the South is it used.

Now, on to the spelling issue. We're in the South. We say things like "How ya doin'?" rather than "How are you doing today." Much like the Blackcountry accent of England, we have developed a style that comes with its own phonetic spelling and pronunciation. It can be said that the Shibboleth for the South is the way one spells "ya'll". For those of ya'll that spell it "y'all", be glad we’re not in Old Testament times.

Thanks Will.

AN OPEN LETTER TO THE SCGOP LEADERSHIP
RE: KATON DAWSON & HOWARD RICH

If you are not familiar with Howard Rich, you need to spend time reviewing the information at www.howierichexposed.com.

Mr. Katon Dawson has spent the last several years focused exclusively on supporting and promoting the hand-selected candidates of Howard Rich (primarily Sanford, Floyd and Eckstrom). He has not done his job, which is promoting the interests of the SCGOP. Mr. Rich is a Libertarian, and gives millions of dollars to any candidate, in any party, that will push his special interests, which are: promoting tax-limitation and real estate referendums to alter state constitutions that exclusively favor the very wealthy Libertarians (like Rich, Sanford, Floyd, and Eckstrom), and private-school voucher programs, his first step attack at removing education from the responsibility of state government altogether.

Many states have already had local folks, too late unfortunately, form local organizations to fight Howard Rich and his Libertarian attacks on local issues. The reason many long-time SCGOP leaders took the unusual step of publicly supporting the Democratic Governor candidate, myself included, is that we see and understand the long-term danger of the allowing Rich/Sanford/Floyd/Eckstrom to continue to permeate and take over our party. Unfortunately, most SC Republicans don’t realize that our party is being hijacked by the Rich Libertarians (although enough have woken up to defeat Floyd). Your job is to expose it, and to make sure that the leadership of the GOP is focused on electing REAL Republicans, who are focused on the REAL conservative issues that will make SC great.

Think about this. The most popular SC political news website, SChotline.com, is moderated and censored by Joshua Gross, who works for and is paid by Howard Rich. His blog, thebodypolitic (actual web address schotline.blogspot.com) is a mouthpiece for Howard Rich and his Libertarian ideology. Mr. Gross is also heavily involved in both South Carolinians for Responsible Government and SC Club For Growth, both Howard Rich shell organizations formed to skirt SC campaign donation laws. Mr. Rich has successfully positioned his SC mouthpiece, Joshua Gross, as the gatekeeper of political news and ideas in SC.

I’m a long-time Republican, and nobody is paying me. Simply, I’m sick of watching the Libertarians continue to grow on our party, like a cancer, and I decided to do my part to raise the red flag. I’ll continue to do so as long as I’m breathing and Howard Rich and Mark Sanford continue to attack our great state.

All of the above is irrelevant though, to Mr. Dawson’s campaign for a third term. Either he steps aside, which solves the problem, or he runs. If he runs, he is a stone-cold liar, and unfit for the position. In that case, the leadership must throw him out.

Dearest Bill,
From a conservative mother of three, you have lightened my laundry duty and made dinner prep delightful! I will sorely miss your inside perspective on South Carolina politics.Your humor has kept me off of prozac... Please be back in time for breakfast...or maybe reconsider your retirement.

We still need Will to uncover who the absolutely idiotic jerk known as Upstate Voice is.

It's hilarious that UV is so stupid that he doesn't know that school choice is in the national and state GOP platforms. Let's see...George Bush supports it, Jeb Bush supports it, Mitt Romney supports it amd John McCain supports it. In fact, two years ago - the State Republican Executive Committee voted 45-0 in favor of school choice.

UV is no Republican.
