Politics makes strange bedfellows

Earlier this week Will Folks over at FITSNEWS was again criticizing Adam Fogle of Richard Quinn and Associates for something Fogle wrote on his blog, the Palmetto Scoop. Those who read either of their blogs know the two scrape at one another from time to time.

But, it seems that they have found a common enemy: Lt. Governor Andre Bauer. With Folk’s pet candidate, Rep. Nikki Haley of Lexington County in the race for Governor, and Fogle working for Richard Quinn, who is handling McMaster’s campaign, the two found friendship yesterday in writing about charges that Lt. Governor Andre Bauer’s chief of staff will resign due to some sort of scandal with Senior Shield. Folk’s FITSNEWS post even cited Fogle’s Palmetto Scoop post. Wow.

The casual political observer might wonder how two men who scrape with one another seem to now join forces, as least for a post. It is simple, both Haley and McMaster need Bauer out of the picture. Haley needs the Lexington County GOP vote without any other Lexington County power in the picture. McMaster needs to be the only candidate with statewide ties on the ticket. There is also some of the aged old sentiment of “I hate that guy, but I hate that guy more,” involved.

The problem with the Folks and the Fogle posts is that neither offers any details about the alleged scandal revolving around Jim Miles. Those two guys are plugged in and it is unusual for them not to lay out the red meat details. Until the details are laid out, VUI reserves judgment on Bauer or Miles. As of now, this smacks of an effort to make political moves to ease Bauer out of the race.

    This shit is crazy. Folks is calling Fogle his nigger. Damn, those crackers must need something bad.

    I guess that is what crackers with little crackers do, show some love to each other.

    Check this out. Both of those crackers wish they were brothas. Fogle because a fat brotha gets laid, and a fat cracker can't get laid with a credit card in the whore house. Folks because, well, he wants to to tap the hottest white bitches, but the brothas got the big crackers going on.

    Just two pale ass crackers lovin' one another while brothas like me take their women.

    My shit is stupid. Theirs is sad. Wait till my President comes down here and makes a Democrat Governor. I hope those crackers both have working hands and you too, Cracker under the Influence.

    Willie, if it was 1845, you would be glad to have my beautiful black ass on your plantation. With your small cracker, the lovin I could give your wife, your sister, your adult daughters, would keep them from running off.

    Praise God. I am so blessed to be a black man. I am so blessed to have my President looking out for me and making sure your cracker ass gets justice.
