SouthCarolina08.com Under New Ownership February 19, 2007

FITSNews – February 19, 2007 – Two Republican communications consultants have purchased the domain name www.SouthCarolina08.com for $1,000 from Laurin Manning, who has shut down her blogging operations to work on the campaign of Democratic presidential hopeful Barack Obama.

FITSNews has learned that House Republican Caucus Communications Director Jason Zacher, a former Greenville News reporter, and longtime Republican political consultant Chip Felkel will post a message to the website at noon today announcing that they have jointly purchased the site.

No word yet on whether the pair plan to have the website appraised for 25 times its value or use it as an ostensibly unbiased mouthpiece for a presidential campaign. Wait … that would be these guys.

Demure? I’ll give you “giggly,” but I don’t think anyone would characterize me as “demure” … as much as my mother might like for that to be the case.

[…] SouthCarolina08.com for being a John McCain-Mitt Romney spitball match. In fact, until the site was purchased by new owners in February, it was little more than a running diary of Never-Been-Laid College Republicans arguing […]
