JESUS AND TAXES …
We have no idea who David Royce is … nor do we particularly care who wins this week’s special election to fill a seat on Berkeley County, S.C. school district five.
South Carolina’s government-run schools are an unmitigated disaster … and our guess is a special election in the Palmetto Lowcountry is unlikely to move the needle one way or the other when it comes to the state’s $16,211 per kid, per year price of failure.
Our interest in Royce? The pure pandering pablum of his yard signs … which as far as we’re concerned perfectly encapsulate every single Palmetto Republican politician’s rallying cry.
He loves JESUS and WON’T RAISE TAXES.
Ha! How rich …
In fact, change that sentence to the past tense and you’ve got what every Palmetto Republican politician would love to see chiseled on their tombstones (no matter the eternal judgment such a demonstrably false inscription might incur).
Whatever it takes to get elected, right?
