SIX-FIGURE BUREAUCRAT HAS AN “AMERICA’S MOST WANTED” CONNECTION

Last week we learned comedian Stephen Colbert’s sister was a six-figure bureaucrat at one of the state of South Carolina’s most notorious higher ed boondoggles … in addition to being a candidate for the U.S. Congress.

This week’s big news about Elizabeth Colbert-Busch? Her ex-husband Robert Walker Legare … who just so happens to have made an appearance on America’s Most Wanted.

Wait … what? Yup … according to reporter Ali A. Akbar (Admiral Akbar? What?) of Viral Read, Legare’s secret past was mentioned in a 2010 article in the Charleston, S.C. Post and Courier – although the paper neglected to mention his name.

Hmmmm …

Frankly, we don’t really care if Colbert-Busch’s first hubby was a fugitive from justice. Been there, done that. We’re far more concerned she had the audacity to rake in more than $120,000 a year (not counting benefits) doing “business development” for a government entity which shouldn’t even exist.

Seriously … raising, preserving and displaying a Confederate submarine is not a core function of government, yet Colbert-Busch is part of an ongoing multi-million dollar effort to do just that. Of course in typical South Carolina fashion this effort is nowhere close to achieving its stated goal. Hell, it took eleven years after the Hunley was raised from the floor of Charleston harbor for this crack team of taxpayer-funded “restoration experts” to simply turn the ship upright.

God knows how much more taxpayer cash it’s going to take to fit it for a starring role at some over-priced taxpayer-funded museum …

This reminds me of that joke:

Q: “How many bureacrats does it take to flip over the Hunley”?

A: “Shut up and appropriate the money, it’s what the voters want.”

What? It’s not a joke?

Oh.

If it involves the Hunley, it’s controlled by McConnell.

If six-figure pay is given for non-work involving the Hunley, it’s McConnell.

If this sounds queer, it’s the Hunley.

If it’s McConnell, it’s queer.

Asshole, the Hunley was not raised to go on display for the general public.

OK, it has taken 11 yeas to roll it over

It will take another 11 years to stand it up

It will take 2 more years to cut off the rear quarters

It will take another 2 years to retro fit the rear with booster rockets

Upon his death Confederate Corporal First Class Glenn Francis Beauregard McConnell will be entombed in the Hunley’s forward compartment

The booster rockets will be fired and the queer little son of a bitch will be blasted into another galaxy to screw to the wall whatever alien race is dumb enough to resurrect his ass

As for Cougar Colbert she deserves the vote of the Holy City residents. Take another look at her picture, the profile, the hair style, the blouse

Praise the Lord, Scarlett O’Hara’s Grandmother is running for Congress.

It is hard to read Sic’s attacks on others without picturing a caricature of a jealous, spoiled schoolboy bemoaning the successes and accolades bestowed on those classmates who’ve done better. He loves to talk about his admiration for the free market and for those who have worked for their bread and butter; and yet, and YET he butters his own bread by tearing down everyone else and by throwing down speculative commentary on so many who are at least trying to engage the process in much more honest ways than throwing the rest of humanity under the bus.

You had me going there for a minute Reasonable

Had a slight moment of doubt. Probably the same type of doubt the

Russians had in March 1917

French had in September 1792

Colonists had in July 1776

Don’t believe in my lifetime that this blog or those who comment can achieve the level of results of those events but there is always hope.

As for who is throwing whom under the bus, I do believe you have, let me think how to say this politely, oh – you have lost your mother fucking mind.

Many of us have waited and waited and waited for elected/appointed officials to lead us to greener pastures. The only consequence is that they end up with the greener pastures and we, our children, our grandchildren and great grandchildren end up with their goddamn fertilizer bill.

I have no apologizes for chucking every last one of the sons of bitches under the bus. As a collective group they have had over 200+ years to be the Government of the people, by the people, for the people and it fucking ain’t happening.

Our Government will not disappear due to dissent. It will disappear when those who dissent are berated, censored, jailed or assassinated into silence.

At that point the cockroaches will have total immunity. That is until another Major T. J. “King” Kong is born.

Great points Jim.

“so many who are at least trying to engage the process in much more honest ways”

Even further, there’s nothing honorable about making a living via money that is forcibly taken from others.

Which is why everyone should respect a McDonald’s worker 10x over any elected official or their army of bureaucrats.

It’s those health insurance benefits he seems to pine for – “(not counting benefits)” – always alludes to the salary of any state emeployee PLUS the benefits.

I, too, am curious about the Hatch Act. But, think it’s possible her job is paid with state funds only. The filing is today? Will she have to take leave if she runs?

Hmmm………

Dear ELIZABETH COLBERT-BUSCH, it is rather telling that FITS has spoken so kindly of you so much lately…don’t ya think..? You do know that you are the perfect “O’Hara” type that will give Sanford a real run for the congress seat. All you need to do is practice a good “eye roll” and wink tactic. You could make any guy look like Mr. Wang from “Caddyshack” or Judge Smells.

When you get a moment Elizabeth, get yourself a copy of the latest Skirt Magazine and see if you can realize your campaign tactic that are begging for your attention. Maybe give Darla Moore a call or Colleen Condon and compare notes.

Elizabeth…..it doesn’t take the MACE Group to stir the pot….

Okay, start ‘splainin

How does Clemson Restoration Institute, which deals with ENERGY, have anything to do with the damn submarine?

Sounds like someone is so damn desperate to find junk against her that he has to use bs like this…..

Just because the sub and the Institute are near one another in physical location doesn’t mean the two have anything to do with one another. And it doesn’t mean Cobert-Busch does anything for McConnell’s pet project, either.

If you think you’re correct, then prove it or stfu. Damn….desperate whiz from wil

If you google Clemson University Restoration Institute it will provide you with:

http://www.clemson.edu/restoration/

If you pull up the website, there are 4 Focus Areas defined for the Institute

Number 2 on the Foscus List is,

Historical Preservation & Materials Conservation – techniques for historic preservation and materials conservation
Warren Lasch Conservation Center

Translation: Number 2 is the fucking Hunley

Now on a more personal note.

If a goat is fucking you in the ass do you really need to reach back and feel his nuts or will his pecker in your ass satisfy your curiosity that you are being fucked.

reg January 22, 2013 at 3:00 pm

And if you actually click on the “Hunley” link on that page, you’ll friggin read that the sub is at the Warren Lasch Conservation Laboratory, which is separate from the RI, and that the only relativity of it to RI was its use to test chloride use as rust treatment on nautical vessels. Keep at that reading and you’ll learn that the similar testing projects were done with the Pinckney Site, which *also* doesn’t have a friggin think to do with RI.

Translation: Number 2 is of minute relativity to the Hunley, which itself has absolutley nofuckngthing to do with Restoration Institute.

Now on a more personal note.

If a goat tastes raw shit on his beard, how long does he have to keep licking it before he learns he should just keep his stupid fucking mouth shut?

You have to be the dumbest son of a bitch alive.

Try this one fucktard

Go back to the website and go over to the heading CURI Facilities to the right, no dummy your other right

If you scroll down you will see

Warren Lasch Conservation Center
1250 Supply Street

listed as a FACILITY of the CURI

I know Clemson does some weird shit but to claim a facility which in your words “is separate” begs to question whether you are in fact Ms. Cougar or the goat fucking her.

Reply
reg January 22, 2013 at 4:01 pm

And it still ain’t the site of the Hunley, billygoat.

And the Hunley itself still ain’t a project of RI; it was just used as test subject of a restoration method that’s also used on other sites.

And it still has nothing to do with Colbert-Busch, no matter how friggin desperate for shit against her that this is all you could manage to pull out of the shit-loaded GOAT-ee of yours.

Jesus Christ, is it going to take 3 nails and a mallet

Click on the link below

When you get onto the Hunley website scroll down 4 paragraphs and read

The Hunley is located at:
Warren Lasch Conservation Center
1250 Supply Street (on the old Charleston Navy Base)
North Charleston, South Carolina 29405

I do believe that is the same fucking address in my earlier post.

When you see Cougar Colbert tell her she may want to find a new campaign manager, you ain’t worth a damn.

whoa, you’re lickety split when you lickety shit off your goat-ee, jim-boy.

Again, if your herd is so friggin desperate for shit on her that you gotta keep applying coats of shit on your own faces, then … damn! You need a shower *and* a bitch-slap (in that order, of course).

Its address is BUILDING 255 at the address. And that same numerical street address is for AN ENTIRE SQUARE BLOCK in that industrial area at the shipyards, fumduck. There are a OTHER BUILDINGS at that same address, WHICH IS SHARED BY FOUR OTHER FACILITIES —- including the Public Works office and a boat repair shop. HAVE YOU EVER BEEN ANYWHERE NEAR THAT ADDRESS TO SEE FOR YOURSELF, OR IS YOUR GUBBAMINT DISABILITY CHECK NOT ENOUGH TO GET YOU A CAB DOWN HERE FROM YOUR COLUMBIA TRAILER PARK?

Do you know how fucking stupid you’ve made yourself out to be? You got a tax-payer funded philanderer and a coke-head wanting to run for congress; you’ve got candidates buying the rights to website addresses of their opponents’ names ….. and you’re trying to blow dust out your anus because a completely different candidate works at a facility which has a building near the submarine, and one pissy diddly project done by just one office of the same facility was on that sub, along with other historical sites in the area. Damn her, that confederate-sympathizing McConnell pal!!

Yeah, fumduck, you’re like, master of twisted connotations to influence the votes of elementary school dropouts who’ll need you to give ’em a ride to the polls and to buy them slurpees on the ride home after they realize they’re not registered to vote because of their child abuse records but that’s okay because they know you’re sympathetic and will stop the car under the overpass to wiggle each others weenies.

Keep up the desperate plight!!!

Now I know what it must have felt like when the crew of the Hunley realized that they had made a direct hit and listened as the USS Housatonic came unglued.

Best of luck to you young fella as you manage Cougar Colbert’s Campaign.

Just a word or two of advice. Don’t forward your last post to potential SC-1 voters unless you can attach some of your peyote cookies.

I am sure you will respond to this, my last post on this story, but there are only so many times one should poke an idiot in the eye.
