Governor Sanford endorses Tim Scott, incites a riot

Chanting "no games, more cooperation", supporters of State Treasurer candidates Earl Capps and Converse Chellis set aside their differences to storm the Governor's office in an effort to "clean house".

After Sanford called upon legislators to appoint Charleston County Council Chairman Tim Scott (R-North Charleston) to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of former State Treasurer Thomas Ravenel, supporters of Capps and Chellis seemed puzzled and silent, until a denim and leather clad supporter of Capps yelled "rock and roll". After that, the suddenly enraged crowd charged Sanford's office.

While the Governor and most of his staff escaped unharmed, two budget staffers, Pork and Barrel, were not so fortunate. Barrel was captured and served up to the crowd on a hastily-constructed BBQ pit, and Pork was reported missing.

While several political commentators at the scene could not agree on the reason for the Governor's endorsement, they all agreed that Barrel was a tasty line item and hoped that Pork would soon be found.

    Dawber, I'd tell them, but since they all seem tuned into this blog, I'm sure they'll find out soon enough.

    ... and I'm sure they all love you too.
