S.C. Legislators Get Throwback Jerseys July 2, 2007

Posted by fitsnews in SC Politics.



FITSNews – July 2, 2007 – For their awesome work growing the size of state government by 41% over the last three years, South Carolina legislators (well, those who aren’t in the Nikki Haley Caucus, anyway) were awarded official throwback jerseys by Major League Baseball today.

The stylish jerseys, modeled after the famous 1969 New York Mets’ threads, feature the name “S.C. Spending” and a big “41%” stitched onto them. Interestingly enough, the 41% figure is approximately four times the growth rate of population plus inflation in South Carolina over the same time period. Not to mention the growth of South Carolinians’ personal incomes.

There’s a rumor going around that these might even be worn during the next legislative softball game …



1. Disappointed - July 3, 2007

Historians will observe the Sanford Period not so much for the historic growth of government, or the complete lack of the Governor to have any influence whatsoever, but for the lack of critical thinking displayed in the media.

Today’s Cindy Ross Scoppe column is just another case in point where the media misses the point of the large events that shape public life. The banal and humorless tank of estrogen known as Scoppe seems to always err on the side of the mediocre, just skimming the surface of her ideas and never daring to tread into stupidity from which her point of view is taken.

The Sanford Period, a period dominated by Jenny Sanford and her tanned minion the Governor, will certainly receive much ink in the future…and for the life of me I can’t see where any of it will be positive.

2. Weak - July 3, 2007

Weak, Will. Very weak.

3. ABC (anybody but Colts) - July 3, 2007

Why did you have to impugn the uniform of Tom “Terrific” Seaver in this way. Shame. Why not a Colts 18 to highlight this years growth?
