SOUTHERN CHARMER WOULD RATHER “FLUSH $100 BILLS DOWN THE TOILET”

|| By FITSNEWS || Having failed (miserably) to pull off a political comeback last fall, former South Carolina treasurer and reality television star Thomas Ravenel says he’s done with politics.

In an interview with Bravo TV, the Southern Charm star was asked the following question: “After time has passed do you ever see yourself running for office again?”

His answer?

“I love politics, interacting with people and the challenge of creating solid changes in the government,” Ravenel told the network.  “However, if I do get the urge to run again I am going to start flushing 100 dollar bills down the toilet until the urge passes.  As far as future career plans, I will continue to develop real-estate, and keep my main focus on my daughter.”

Obviously Ravenel’s political viability is nonexistent … which is a shame.

We’re not saying he could have beaten U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham (who is also crazy), but the potential was there in 2014 for Ravenel to re-brand himself as a credible candidate – one consistently advancing pro-free market, pro-freedom ideology.

Obviously that didn’t happen …

Yes, snorting $100 bills sounds like a better idea.

If little lady Lindsey is running for President then T-Rav might as well run as well. They are both certifiable.

“comeback” — as in a witty answer? Don’t ya’ have to have been somewhere first before ya’ can comeback?

Or have won in order for it to be a comeback? Or achieved something for it to be a comeback. Sanford – that’s a comeback – he won. T-Rav didn’t even get toilet paper mention on his.

Metaphor for hiring Will Folks as a campaign consultant.

A shame? Why in the world is it “…a shame…”? Don’t we already have enough drug using, drug dealing, narcissistic, man child, philandering, “reality stars” and “baby daddies” in office now?

Good that he’s realized what the rest of us already have, that a Ravenel running for office is just like flushing $100 bills down the toilet.

Well, except you were saying that…for months…until T-Rav threatened to send you back to the trailer park from whence you came.

Had he run a flawless campaign,he would had still lost.

In statewide elections SC is a ONE PARTY state.As long as you have been around politics you certainly understand this.

Accordingly, your deceptive statements are being done purposefully,I suppose just to create comments like this one.
