FITSNews – November 22, 2007 – “London Calling” isn’t just a famous song (and iconic album cover) from legendary British punk rockers The Clash, it was actually something that happened to our very own Sic Willie this Tuesday morning. That’s because the Times of London, Great Britain’s newspaper of record since 1788, actually “rang” him at the God-awful hour of 7:00 a.m. seeking his wisdom for this story on South Carolina’s rock ’em-sock ’em 2008 presidential primary:

“The question this year is not whether the race will be dirtier than 2000,” said Will Folks, the former spokesman for Mark Sanford, the Republican Governor of the state. “The question is, when will it cross that threshold?”

A succinct recap of the rampant shadiness that is Palmetto politics, the article refers to South Carolina as “the foulest swamp of electoral dirty tricks in America,” noting that it “has already become the sleaziest leg of the 2008 presidential campaign.”

Of course, Sic is taking some serious local heat for his international exploits, as fellow political bloggers The Palmetto Scoop and Shot Politics are apparently miffed at his suggestion that their websites are in cahoots with the presidential campaigns of John McCain and Mitt Romney, respectively.

Come on guys, it’s not like we’ve never said that before. Besides, you really can’t blame Sic Willie for anything he says prior to 11:00 a.m. That sh*t is all the snooze button’s fault.

Palmetto politics, the article refers to South Carolina as “the foulest swamp of electoral dirty tricks in America,” …tell me about it, Will.

Congrats on the article. You and Rod are the gods of politics.

My boss is very impressed.

“Sleaziest leg?”
You sure they didn’t mean you.

The foulest swamp? Obviously there haven’t been many Londoners spending their vacation in the backwaters of Alabama or Louisiana. But, hey, it’s all the South. We like our corruption out in the open, so we can gossip about it over beers and bourbon. Like that rumor I heard about Dick Harpootlian running guns. If it weren’t for that, we’d never be able to deal with the rest of the year after football ends.

You need to watch your mouth. After all, we’re FITS to judge ourselves around here.

Anyone on The Clash kicking ass? Anyone? Anyone?

I’m sure the Times of London made you feel important, Sic, since they were asking about the SC primary and who you’re supporting. Let’s not kid ourselves. We all know you love Ron Paul.
Matter of fact, with another Ron Paul fundraiser coming up, where he’s expected to raise $10-12 million in 2 days, the SC Ron Paul boys on Hampton Street can probably offer you a bribe. Actually we, oh, I mean they, can probably offer one to Rod, too—if y’all will just come out of the closet.

Be a Ron Paul man today.

sic(k) willie is as “international” as a toilet plunger. Just as smart, too.

The poor boy ain’t never been out of the States (except maybe to pick up a load or two in Tijuana – and that don’t count).

[…] mention the alleged love affair between Hillary Clinton and hot aide Huma Abedin, now it’s a Times of London article (also featuring our very own Sic Willie) that is once again forcing the rumor to the forefront of […]
