RANDOM PALMETTO POLITICAL SMATTERINGS … 

A couple of items to draw to your attention on this fine Thursday, September 4, 2014 …

First, from The Atlantic here’s a great write-up rebuking the ridiculous opinion editorial published recently in The New York Times by U.S. Warmongers … err, Senators John McCain and Lindsey Graham.

Next up, here’s a rebuke of Graham on a colorful rainbow-themed site … urging voters to pay attention to recent polling data highlight the vulnerability of the “Republican” incumbent as he faces voters this November.

Finally on the U.S. Senate front, we’re told independent conservative Thomas Ravenel – the Lowcounty businessman who is challenging Graham – has launched the first radio ad of his general election campaign.  According to our sources, the spot targets the incumbent for his support of amnesty for illegal immigrants.

We’ll publish that ad as soon as we get a copy of it …

In Nikki Haley news, South Carolina’s governor – and specifically her media relations efforts – come under fire in a post written by operative John Osborne on his new website East Coast Politics .  Osborne has written guest posts for FITS before, so we look forward to seeing what his new site brings to the marketplace of ideas.

In other South Carolina gubernatorial news, independent Republican candidate Tom Ervin is hosting three town hall meetings in the Palmetto Lowcountry tomorrow – one in Beaufort at 7:30 a.m. EDT (here), one in Mount Pleasant at 12:00 p.m. EDT (here) and one in Goose Creek at 6:00 p.m. EDT (here).
