A “Cadence Of Excellence”

Remember Shun Griffin? It’s okay if you don’t … he’s thoroughly unimportant.

We only wrote about him because he was hit with a criminal stalking charge and alleged honor code violations during his tenure as president of the Student Bar Association at the notoriously inept Charleston School of Law (CSOL).

Why are we writing about Griffin today? We’re mocking this 25-year-old “leader” for some of the ridiculous statements made on his nauseatingly self-promotional website.

“He’s a big deal – to some at least – but to those that know him best, Shun is just the goofy kid that loves gummy bears, meeting people, hanging out with friends and family, and of course politics,” the bio page on ShunGriffin.com reads.

Wait … did this kid just proclaim to the world that he’s “kind of a big deal?”

It gets better …

“Frankly, you wouldn’t get a sense of his achievements just by talking with this remarkable young man,” Griffin’s bio continues. “Humbled, committed, mature, and focused, Shun A. Griffin walks the cadence of excellence through profound courage and determination. He truly believes in doing all he can in all he does.”

Wait … walks the “cadence of excellence?”


What kind of gait is that, exactly … like a shuffle? A pimp stroll? A samba?

Sheesh … talk about getting drunk on your own Kool-Aid.

Over on his booking page, prospective audiences are urged to “let Shun’s optimistic message inspire and encourage people at your next event.”

Don’t worry though, if you represent a youth, church, nonprofit or community initiative, “booking engagement fees are never charged.”

Wow … this kid’s inflated sense of self would make a Macy’s Thanksgiving Day parade ballon blush.

The saddest thing about this story? Griffin probably has a bright political future ahead of him in South Carolina … were no bad deed goes punished and self-promotion has become an art form.

Why again do we have a vendetta against this guy?

Sic willie is anti any self promoters except Sic Willie. Put a dollar in a jar every time Sic Willie proclaims that he broke some news “exclusively”. You will have a tidy sum in no time flat.

As far as making money….TBG is considering trademarking “Perp Walk of Pomposity”.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 20, 2013 at 9:05 am

When TBG first got married , he and his beloved put $1 in their “Love Kitty” each time they had sex. After 5 years they emptied the kitty and used the money for a REALLY nice dinner and drinks.

The very next day, TBG went out and bought a fully rigged sport fishing boat. When the missus asked where he got the money, TBG gently explained that he had secretly kept a kitty of his own and added $1 for everytime he was told “Not tonight.”, “Not now”, “I’m not in the mood.”, I’m too tired”, “Maybe in the morning”,” Maybe tonight, Maybe tomorrow”, “It is almost/is/was just that time of the month”, “Is that all you ever think about?”,” Not here”,” Not in the car/boat/Piggly Wiggly!”, “I have a headache/backache/etc”

What’s an entrepreneur? Does he start a business or does he go into politics after getting a degree in poly sci and getting a worthless JD?

Griffin’s 25 years old and trying to get paid for telling people about all his life experience after spending most of his adult life being in school and participating “in an adopt a highway or community service project” on his weekends.

Seriously? What’s next for the community advocate? Why isn’t he slaving away at a legal firm someplace, earning his chops?

What a joke.

See my post above…

Baruch September 20, 2013 at 6:23 am

It is a joke that anyone cares about what this guy does. But then again race probably has nothing to do with that …….

Honky Whitebread September 20, 2013 at 10:02 am

I think the race card bears a striking resemblance to Old Maid now a days.

As for decrying electronic lynching, there’s always perpetual victims cheering you on even if it doesn’t reflect reality.

Egads, maybe “slaving away” was a poor choice of words. You could only use that with a white lawyer, not a black one.

Baruch September 20, 2013 at 11:30 am

I think right wingers now think that unless an action is overtly racist, then it’s okay. Their version of a “post-racial” society.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 20, 2013 at 4:30 pm

Knew a (white) guy once that complained to his (black) supervisor that he was being “worked like a nigger.” The RCA Dog/What Just Happened? look on the supervisor’s face was priceless.

let’s worry about that brother after he gets elected – or are you stumping for him a tad. Sort of like the “I can’t endorse Sanford endorsement”?

The term “greaseball” popped into your head.

They do put a lot of that stuff in their kinky hair.

He’s just following the protocol handed down to him from Nikki. All he has to do is fill-in some blanks. Excuse me, but I mean “blanks” as in lines on a page.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 20, 2013 at 8:26 am

Yep….”your libel to get sued for liable.”

cousineddie September 19, 2013 at 11:39 pm

Self-promoting, ego-maniacal, lying, heroin addict, convicted woman-beater trashes a self-promoting, ego-maniacal, lying, accused woman-stalker on his blog…while wondering why no credible media outlet wants to pick up this “story” he “scooped”.

I’m actually a fan, Folks. When viewed in your most favorable light, you encourage accountability among our elected and appointed officials. Stick with that and stay away from the crap that fills up the other 70%ish of the site. Other than the clicks you know it will get, why publish this? It offers no value and it opens you up for the same personal attacks you unleash.

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 20, 2013 at 8:24 am


Is that like the “Skulking of Stalking”?

nitrat September 20, 2013 at 9:43 am

Does anyone really know or care about this pathetic little nothing of a twerp?
Why is this site so obsessed with him?
Is it just the laziness of having someone at CSOL feed you everything he does and that means you don’t have to do any real work yourself?
Or, is it because you have obvious race issues and love to pander to the GOP base that also has obvious race issues, too?

The Tooth Fairy September 20, 2013 at 5:18 pm

Why would Fits pander to the GOP base.Hes not a Republican.He says hes not.What?You dont believe him?

TontoBubbaGoldstein September 20, 2013 at 11:01 am

TBG went to Shun’s website and found out that he is also:

…an editorialist, political analyst, social commentator, and concerned citizens, Shun is raising the standard in public service.

(Italics TBG’s)

shifty henry September 20, 2013 at 4:11 pm

TBG has done it! BigT/GrandTangerine has been identified and located!

shifty henry September 20, 2013 at 7:00 pm

Does he mention that he is the “founding editor”–?

TyroneButterballs September 21, 2013 at 8:41 pm

You guys are so racist

Guster September 22, 2013 at 10:49 am

I do find it funny that while he mentions his high school and college he is conspicuously silent on where he received his law degree. Thanks Infilaw!

A ‘Cadence of Excellence’ is almost as queer as,’in a rare display of intestinal fortitude’.Fits needs boot camp.
