For example, after our careers were ruined (the first time) we drank a lot. And wore hoodies. The [...]
In the event we haven’t made it abundantly clear, we’re big fans of U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama. We get that she’s a socialist (or at least a socialist groupie), but that doesn’t mean she’s not classy.

The social networking website that served as the initial forum for DePass’ unfortunate [...]
The story that broke here on FITS last Friday about a racist comment made by S.C. Republican activist Rusty DePass continues to spiral out of control …
Yesterday, over fifty South Carolina lawmakers filed a resolution expressing their “dismay and regret” at DePass’ remark, which jokingly compared U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama to a gorilla that [...]
Check it out! We’ve found a license plate that’s perfect for S.C. Republican activist Rusty DePass – what with his love of black people and New Yorkers …
Honestly, this post should probably go on the website of our satirist friends over at The Discust, but like everything else in Palmetto politics … we got there [...]
Add the Huffington Post and ABC News to the growing list of national media outlets picking up the story about S.C. Republican activist Rusty DePass and his comparison of U.S. First Lady Michelle Obama to an escaped gorilla at a South Carolina zoo.
