Kid Invites Nikki Haley To Gin Blossoms Concert

|| By FITSNEWS || We’re obviously not big fans of S.C. governor Nikki Haley around here … but we can appreciate those who are.

And we can certainly appreciate young Winston – whose “Winston’s Wish” foundation is inviting the governor to participate in its annual spring/ summer (“Sprummer”) concert event next week.

“We will dance together – and eat yummy food together,” Winston tells the governor in a video greeting posted to his foundation’s Facebook page.

Sounds like a good deal …

Winston’s Wish is “a statewide non-profit foundation created to support children with autism and their families who reside in South Carolina.”

The foundation will hold its eighth annual “Sprummer Concert” on Thursday, May 2, 2015 at 7:00 p.m. EDT on the roof of the Carolina Walk in downtown Columbia, S.C. – just across the street from Williams Brice Stadium.

Performing live?  The Gin Blossoms (no really, The Gin Blossoms).

For more info on the show, click here …

Oh, and whatever we may think of Haley, we hope Winston gets his “wish.”  It’s always nice to see young people receive inspiration and encouragement in pursuing their dreams.

You can do better, kid.

Go eat some pussy, bitch.

SYNTwist April 24, 2015 at 9:32 pm

Wow – we go from a kid who wants to dance with Gov. Haley to….”Go eat some…..” How does that work for ya?

Buz Martin April 26, 2015 at 9:08 am

pogo has likely never eaten pussy in his life. He thinks it’s a bad thing. Thinks it tastes like chicken ass. Does not know that women, unlike hens, do not have the cloaca. He is a product of school choice. Meaning, the choice not to educate a child at all.

Nawww…he’s a lot cuter than all that ;)

Alias The Buzzman April 26, 2015 at 8:37 pm

Glad you think so. But I find Miss Fever Blister (despite her burlesque name” to be attractive. btw, guess what? She’s a committed Christian, a non-boozer and non-druggie, and extremely conservative on most issues. A conversation on religion and politics with her would twist GT and pogo’s minds into worst shape than they’re in already, trying to find a pigeon-hole for her.

Peace offering Boz…damn we lost Dink, General Johnson and I sure hope Jackie don’t leave us real soon…

This song was from the 1989 Embers…best group i ever heard…jackie,craig,barker etc…

Alias The Buzzman April 27, 2015 at 10:56 am

Nice video. Good music. And you know how much I admired Dink and General.

But fuck you anyway, pogo.

L.C. Finch Jr. April 26, 2015 at 9:14 pm

John Bulushi,John Candy or Boz? LMAO!!!!!

Boz is ok…just an easy target for ridicule as he humiliates himself by falsely alleging that everybody his disagrees with is a felon in MB,Horry County and SC as he professes his American hating, socialist and perverted view of society…

Alias The Buzzman April 27, 2015 at 10:54 am

I don’t hate America. I’m just realistic about it. Some of you loonie righties are all about keeping the rewrites of history that puffed up certain people with lies and exaggerations, and reduced whole races to animals in order to justify enslavement, rape and genocide — all blasphemously done in the name of Jesus btw. And now your ilk is trying to write Jefferson out of the textbooks in Texas, seeking to go against the Founding Fathers by declaring Christianity as the national religion, etc. You espouse hate and division in the guise of Christianity and American patriotism — when in the fact your utterances who that you wipe your ass on both the Bible and the Constitution. Then you have the nerve to assert that what i present, based on actual historic records, is “revisionist history.” You have no honor, you have no principles, even your bleating about being pro-life are bullshit. You have no real respect whatsoever for human life. You prove that constantly.

Alias The Buzzman April 26, 2015 at 8:22 pm

pogo, that is Miss Fever Blister, of Parma Ohio, now residing in Los Angeles CA. An actual woman, roughly half my age, with boobs twice as big as my head (each one of them). Just because you can’t find the real pix of me made up as a highly attractive woman is no reason to post false bullshit about Fever. See if can rouse old TD of Garden City (formerly of North Litchfield Beach, Pawleys Island, J. Rueben Long, etc.) out of his latest drunken stupor — oh, excuse me, I meant after-seizure coma — and see if he still has the original.

mamatiger92 April 27, 2015 at 8:51 am

Nah… with the exception of a few experiments in my early twenties, I’m not interested in the ladies. Thanks anyway.

bamburger April 24, 2015 at 3:14 pm

I’m guessing she orchestrated this whole invite thing. Need that press.

John Boy April 24, 2015 at 3:19 pm

The Gin Blossoms? Why does SC suck at getting good bands?

Why do they suck at getting good food? When I was a kid I loved eating out! My kids love eating at home and I am sick of cooking….LOL

Buz Martin April 26, 2015 at 9:05 am

Because Cecil Corbett — SC’s version of Bill Graham, and the major concert booker/promoter in the Southeast back in the day — who, through his Beach Club Promotions company even brought the Rolling Stones to the 1000-seat MB Convention Center at the height of their popularity — has been dead for many,many years now.

Alternative answer: We are somewhat less than even a tertiary market for Live Nation and other major promoters, nationally.

Bonus alternative answer: Boycott over that flag. (this point, unlike the others, is actually debateable)

The REAL answer: GT lives here.

John Boy April 26, 2015 at 11:58 am

Lol! Great answers!

Skanky Nikki April 24, 2015 at 5:18 pm

I guess he heard the rumors about how easy she is and was hoping to get some of that stank poon.

Unless he has money or means to seriously elevate her political career, he’s probably SOL.

Skanky Nikki April 24, 2015 at 5:50 pm

I apologize. I made the previous comment while my contacts were out and I did not even skim the article well. My comment was wholly inappropriate for the article. I will need to read the articles in the future before commenting. Fitsnews has my permission to delete the erroneous comment.

My permission is also given to delete…

There might be a method available on disqus that would allow you to do that — you should check into it.

Buz Martin April 26, 2015 at 9:23 am

Nah. I only give Will that permission because he can already do it. lol But why should he want to . My posts piss off enough people to help create long comment threads — which yield more hits.

shifty henry April 26, 2015 at 9:32 am

Have you experienced folks replying to any of your old comments? I’ve had votes on my posts as far back as 3 years within the last few months — it’s almost creepy.

Buz Martin April 26, 2015 at 7:15 pm

Hey, that’s happened a lot. It’s weird when it does. Half the time, I don’t remember ever having said that. In many cases, my position has changed, at any rate. As the delightful and insightful SYNTwist says, I am extremely consistent. Meaning consistent on being anti-corruption, anti-collectivist, anti-communist, anti-cronyism, and pro- civil liberties. But I’m also consistently adaptable and open to seeing things in a new light.

shifty henry April 26, 2015 at 7:27 pm

interesting —- I can understand you, but me?

Alias The Buzzman April 26, 2015 at 8:30 pm

Hey, I got enough problems figuring my own shit out, dude. I just know you’re funny and I enjoy our exchanges. Thought for a while about changing my handle on here to The Drummer Boy From Illinois.


GrandTango April 24, 2015 at 5:20 pm

I really don’t think it appropriate for FITS to even touch anything this serious. Stick to the usual FILTH – and gossip – you’re known for…

Please don’t tarnish any of these people involved by mentioning it on this site. I’m sure this boy’s family would agree.

Saluda Rapids April 24, 2015 at 6:18 pm

Hey Dwight Schrute, you are in no position to discuss editorial content. You quit your blog faster than Jim DeMint and Sara Palin. Leave things to the professionals.

GrandTango April 24, 2015 at 6:55 pm

You decided to use your old moniker, for a change.

PS: You still advocating the termination of Steve Spurrier because you blame him – not Lo – for the defense collapsing last year???…LMAO…Dumb@$$…

Columbia Star Reporter April 25, 2015 at 5:15 pm

BigT’s deflection!

Buz Martin April 26, 2015 at 8:54 am

Please! Dwight Schrute is a thousand times more interesting, successful, and quotable than GT. Arrogant dickishness doesn’t count.

Buz Martin April 24, 2015 at 7:04 pm

Nice post.

SYNTwist April 24, 2015 at 8:26 pm

Thanks WF, this is a great post! It is always nice to think of others and I hope he gets his wish. Governor Haley is generous with her time, at least in my opinion, so I think he just might. I hope we have a follow up video of the event.

Thanks for posting this – a refreshing break!

Mom April 25, 2015 at 3:08 pm

People who attend this event are the movers and shakers in downtown Columbia. Winston comes from one of the most wealthy and influential families in the state. Don’t get me wrong they are also humble, kind, generous and altruistic. Winston’s family has done amazing work in raising money and awareness for Autism. This is an opportunity for Governor Haley to mingle with potential donors.

Mike at the Beach April 25, 2015 at 3:55 am

I’d like to dance with her too, but her security detail “asked” me to stop calling…

TroubleBaby April 25, 2015 at 9:44 am

They just don’t understand that you two were meant for each other.


Mike at the Beach April 26, 2015 at 12:16 am

I am so often misunderstood, amigo. At least that’s what my attorney told me to say.

shifty henry April 26, 2015 at 10:13 pm

A felon on trial is concerned about his chances. His lawyer tells him, “Be calm. I’m a terrific lawyer. I’ll prove
to the jury that you were in Hong Kong when the crime was committed. I’ll put on two doctors who’ll prove that you were temporarily insane. I’ll pay off two of their witnesses. I have two school buddies on the jury, and my wife’s uncle is the judge. ———
Meanwhile, try to escape!”

My wish April 25, 2015 at 4:30 am

Yeah. Fuck this. She is generous with her(our) time because she doesn’t do anything worthwhile. Her(our) time, consists of Facebook postings, Golf Tournaments, Out of state fundraising events, Out of country job pitches. BTW, have we heard of the supposed jobs to come from India yet? Contrast that with the meaningful pieces of legislation she has signed during her tenure. Yeah, she’s got time to do this alright.

Fran April 25, 2015 at 10:47 am

Haley would take his Kidney if it meant a job in the white house.
