Going over the wall and to the beach
I am officially heading out tomorrow morning and away from the daily barrage of the utter tragic and bizarre silliness that is life in these United States. I will be taking refuge in Charleston, Myrtle Beach, and Pawleys Island as the Republicans come to crow and roost in my home state for what I'm sure will be a reality bending weekend for them. From Huckabee's proposal to amend the Constitution to fit the Bible to the latest McCain swiftboating episode in this state that says he was giving aid to the Vietcong while a prisoner I'm sure the poop is going to get very deep here until someone is declared the winner. This being a truly strange state there is some talk that Fred Thompson has actually awoke and is moving up the in the polls. Given the number of times this state sent Strom Thurmond back to the senate we do have a nasty habit of voting for the dead.
My brother Joe Cool and his lovely Mrs. Cool will be joining the kids and myself as we range up and down from the Lowcountry and Grand Strand. While we will not be looking to meet any politicians Joe Cool will be bringing his two attack Chihuahuas, Steve and Dodo, and any encounters that might happen will not be pretty. As long as my kids and Steve and Dodo avoid biting anyone I should be back Tuesday. I wish everyone the best.
