    She’s cute. I really hope holy Joe Wilson is caught with his hand in the cookie jar.

    They can cry and whine and obfuscate but really they show their true selfish nature when caught in compromising positions.

    So funny. I see the SC GOP censured Huckleberry Hound again too.

    What a joke that state is. Too bad, because between the upstate and Charleston, its beautiful.

    @Max: I agree, I even LOVE going to Mississippi and driving the roads along the river.

    The problem always comes back to meeting people who have a stick up their butt about the way this country should be run vs. reality. Conservatives truly live in a fantasy world and maybe all these nice places make them more clueless than usual?

    Mr. Wilson has apparently found his own Chunky Reese Witherspoon. Let’s hope they don’t get snowed in and pull a Donner Party, when she really masticates on his neck.

    @Max: What, where? I live between the two and I thought they had to be better than here. The upstate is full of the “duelling banjos” crowd and the coast is full of yankees (and rednecks) who don’t want to pay taxes. The state has come under republican domination over the last 40 years, and bad as it was then, it’s worse off now, far worse off, than before.

    Is there some law in SC that states it is illegal for an elected official to “hike” with his wife?

    Do people your age really say “coed”? That term was coined in the 1920s when men and women attending college together was a novelty, and I thought it went out 40 years ago. Wait, you’re being saucily ironic, right?

    @Annie: Or if he is really hiking as opposed to “hiking”, his kids. Or his grandkids, for that matter (per Wiki).

    I’m sure there’s a perfectly innocent explaination for this…somewhere. Joe Wilson’s still working on the “somewhere” part, and as soon as he’s ready to inform us what that is, I’m sure he’ll twit…er twitter us about that.

    On a somewhat related note, the ‘talk to hot women’ ad currently gracing the sidebar reminds me of this recent Onion story.

    Clearly his wife is just for breeding and raising the kids. Here’s how he refers to his wife on the occasion of their anniversary:

    I am grateful today, my 32nd anniversary, my wife Roxanne has done well raising four sons with three great daughters-in-law, 5 grands!

    Good to know raising the kids is wimmin’s work. Menfolk don’t get involved except for the occasional trip behind the woodshed for a whuppin, of course.

    Now his “You LIE! moment makes sense – he was projecting.
    They must make that a requirement or something, also, too.

    It was reported today that Rep. Henry Jones (R-SC) is retiring. He’s a 74-year-old crackpot and neo-Confederate, so good riddance. They’ll probably just elect some teabagger to replace him. My own congressman is one of those two-faced Blue Dogs who’ll vote for any Pentagon boondoggle but is against affordable health care.

    I’m sure there will be yet another open thread tonight, but unfortunately I have work. So completely OT: my cousin (recovering from H1N1) was suppose to go home from the rehab hospital today but demanded to go home yesterday and they accommadated her. She’s fiesty and I really believe that spirit is what has gotten her from coma to recovery in record time. They’ve made a big batch of Italian food to help get weight back on her. She has a ways to go, but she’s home and that’s amazing.

    As for Joe “You Lie!” Wilson…dumb as bricks, that one. Hiking, my ass!

    And, my bro uploaded all the food pics from our trip thus for onto Flickr (for those who are not on FB). Enjoy. Actually, this is only a portion of the food pics.

    And, I can walk my Raven…I just walk–and he follows me.

    I’m not thinking about the hike, so much as I am thinking about what Joe does when he goes to the men’s room. All GOP politicians ought to be required to have a chaperone for that.

    (normal voice) He looks so much like my dear departed Hamish, even to the little white chevron on his chest. Lovely boy.

    @asiangrrlMN: I tried that first (clicking on ATR’s name) but all I saw was the snow scene with chemical toilet. A thing of beauty, but hardly in the Henri category.

    Do you mean the PeeDee region or the Midlands? Coz those are the areas between the Upstate & Charleston…

    I live in the Midlands and don’t know if I’d call it beautiful. I’d rather be in the Upstate or Charleston. Now those areas are beautiful!

First play of the game Stanzey throws a pick six. He just stares right at his receivers. He is the anti Favre. I cant even venture into that next thread during foosball.

    gnomedad says:

    OK, I smell a setup. According to this, Wilson has family along. So he drops a tantalizing tweet, waits for the mockery, then holds a presser with his family and the tearful intern, damning the libruls for slandering her.
