A lot going on at this hour. Perhaps you’ll want to discuss one of these topics:
- Continuing bad craziness in SC Senate — So they postponed the vote on Yancey McGill today. The State says they postponed the vote making him lt. gov., but surely they mean making him president pro tem, after which he would automatically become Gov Lite on McConnell’s departure. This is ostensibly to allow some Republicans a chance to contest the post, because you know, there are Republicans who think the sun won’t rise tomorrow if a Democrat occupies an almost meaningless statewide post for seven months. Which is ridiculous, but there it is. On the other hand, the delay might be about sorting out votes on whether Leatherman or Martin replaces the person who is automatically demoted to Gov Lite. So. As I said. Both bad, and crazy.
- Lexington Sheriff Metts indicted — By a federal grand jury, on charges of accepting bribes and abuse of his position. Wow. Metts has been sheriff of Lexington County since forever.
- U.S. captures top Benghazi suspect — Translation for some of our Republican friends — this means one of the attackers, not the Obama administration. So don’t get all excited.
Or whatever y’all prefer to talk about.
