All we can say is that there better be some chocolate-covered doughnuts left this morning when we roll into S.C. Comptroller General Richard Eckstrom’s Office (with our mainstream media friends) to get a sneak peek at our state’s 2008 annual report.
How come? Because we like chocolate-covered doughnuts … and we can already sum up the annual report in four words:
“South Carolina: Still F*cked.”
That’s seriously about it. In fact, if we were the Comptroller(s) General, that’s exactly what we’d put on the cover of this year’s report.
Sure, Pippi Wrongstockings over at La Socialista will probably projectile vomit about a thousand unintelligibly sanctimonious words about the report in one of her columns (a.k.a. your yawns) … but now you don’t have to read that crap anymore (which judging from the paper’s dwindling circulation, you’re not).
Anyway, the only reason we’re attending tomorrow’s gathering (well, other than the doughnuts) is that Eckstrom is planning to make some news on the issue of government transparency, which has become the preeminent drama magnet of the legislative off-season.
We’re hoping to record Eckstrom’s remarks on our new pimp daddy digital video camera … and then play them back for you … although there’s a good chance it’ll be sometime next year before we’ve figured out how to work the friggin’ thing.
As they say … stay tuned … we could just say screw it all and spend the whole time stuffing our faces with doughnuts.
