FITSNews – May 6, 2008 – In addition to being a walking rainbow, La Socialista editorial page writer Cindi Ross Scoppe (a.k.a. Pippi Wrongstockings) is also quite the sunshine advocate – assuming you can translate her “insider” blathering and figure out what the hell it is she’s talking about.

Take her column this morning, for example, in which Pippi waxes on for 918 words to make a point that we can sum up it 18 words: 

“Two powerful politicians are secretly rewriting the state budget, shutting their colleages and the public out completely.”

Ta-da! It’s called “main idea” thinking people.

Not surprisingly, Pippi is referring to Senate Finance Chairman Hugh Leatherman and House Ways & Means Chairman Dan “Egg-Tooth” Cooper here, two Socialist bozos whose inability to play it straight with your money is legendary in S.C. politics. Looks like that trend’s continuing again this year …
