Survivor – South Carolina

Apparently sometime over the last few years, Survivor, hit the air in SC.  That and King George (isn’t he dead) has retaken the throne and rules in SC.  Well according to exiting House Pro Tem Doug Smith, it appears both are true.

In Sunday’s Herald Journal article, Doug Smith claims the elected seat is the incumbents to hold come come hell or high water, “you (county chairman), ought to give them (incumbents) protection.”

Understand that he his referring to Ralph Davenport and Bob Walker.  I don’t know of anything personally concerning Walker’s affairs, but Mr. Davenport hung himself after his second attempt to over run Spartanburg County School District 2 (School District Consolidation and attempting to take property from the district in 2006).

This appears to be a common theme in politics as well, at least it exists on both sides of the aisle.  When speaking with a younger Reese concerning his fathers re-election campaign against Mike Gardner, he quickly took up arms stating (paraphrased) “his father deserved that seat and that there shouldn’t be a race.”

The point is, every race should be contested.  The people should have a choice and if the incumbent deserves the immunity idol, he will win handly on election day.

By the way, somebody call up Jeff Probst and get Jim Ritchie and Glenn Reese an immunity idol before June 24th and November 4th elections.
