Before Governor Sanford sends SLED to kick his ass into next week, it is important to point out to Blogland readers that references to Anthrax are referring to ANTHRAX THE HEAVY MOSHIN' THRASHIN' METAL BAND.
His explanation for this plan was simple:
Since I bought my Zune player before the holidays, I've copied a lot of my collection to digital format and backed up those files as well. I've got quite a few CDs that I don't need anymore, so I thought I could share some Anthrax with fellow Republicans who really need to get infected with this stuff. But I'm willing to bet if I sent some to the Governor's office, they really wouldn't get the joke - especially after someone sent him fake anthrax not too long ago.
My advice to anyone who may have gotten fake Anthrax - accept no substitutes. Only real Anthrax will do.
This announcement to start mailing out Anthrax took some observers by surprise, even for those who have become used to Capps' irreverent and possibly pyschotic ways:
I'm not sure what he's getting at by sending out Anthrax. Personally I think he needs to be sending out Black Sabbath CDs, starting with my house.

This is exactly what the GOP needs. I'm sure under Earl's leadership, it won't be long before the SCGOP is the first political organization with its own "Behind the Music" episode.

What the hell is this Anthrax, and why don't we just send SLED to his house to kick his brains in?
