I completely disagree with this selection. Tara is no Ann Coulter by any stretch but she's no Richard Todd either. Her 'Liberal Latte' crack the other day sealed the deal for me. Richard was right of center and sure he'd get stuck on an issue or two but he was even in his contempt for both Liberals and Republicans. He understood that just because you call yourself a Republican doesn't mean you're a Conservative. Tara is just abrasive and loves to hear herself speak. I will always love John Quincy and Fred Storey but they can't keep me there. Charleston has a definite dearth of local talk radio talent. Hell, as much as I can't stand Rocky D, he's better than Tara any day and at least I can enjoy his show.
I'll admit, it took me a while to warm up to her too, but she's kind of grown on me. Compared to Todd's daily harping on not being able to play Crazy 8's with his son for fear of being arrested for gambling, or the Crosstown flooding, I'll take Tara any day. And don't even get me started on the mindless witch hogging up the airwaves on 94.3 Now, if we could just cut down on all these nonstop Jeff Cook realtor testimonials...
I recently moved here, and only got about a month or so of Moredock.
Fuck off, Jack Hunter.
"Since Mat usually finds and executes justice on wingnut CP commenters ."
And if need be, I or others execute justice on Matt's far left wingnut shit.
How did Clarkie and/or Larry not win? It's rigged I say!
Congrats, matastrophe. I'm gunning for your crown next year. Let me get the ball rolling:
All pregnant women should have mandatory abortions. Guns are for pussies who can't handle their beefs like real men. I want to get gay married to Larry Carter Center.
Game on, bitch.
Congratulations to my talented Creative Writing students at the Academic Magnet High School for winning best locally produced video for their Six-Word Memoir film! Watch the film at:
unfortunalty the woman that writes for city paper does not have a clue what minx is really about. Minx no longer discusses sexual issues in the publication. We believe that women get their empowerment when their mind, body and spirit is aligned as one. We focus on words of Enlightement filled with Encouragement to move forward in life through ones own Empowerment. To learn more about Minx, check it out at www.charlestonminx.com
Congrats! It was the beets and pickles that swayed my vote.
THANKS to everyone who voted! XO
Foodmancing - Are you the same person from the Foodmancing the Girl Blog? Nice writing.
"Im not afraid to say something out loud"...
...he said, with great conviction, anonymously, from behind his keyboard in the finished room over his mom's garage...
Folks. I'm black myself and the term "calling a spade a spade" is no big deal. First of all, most sensible people know that the context of this idiom refers to a small shovel and means to be blunt about something. Secondly, the reference to black people as "spades" went out in the 1950s and younger people would have no idea what you are talking about. Finally, we tend to have a lot more important things to worry about. Most of us are not weak kneed fanatics who suffer from apoplexy over minor league stuff like this. Trust me, I grew up here in the 1970s and know a thing or two about REAL racism, so let's worry about REAL issues. With that said, I'm not exactly shedding tears over Rocky's D-parture muself!
@Greg, Im not backtracking, as I said in my first post You can't defend someone being accused of being a bigot by using a racial slur and pretending it isn't. Im not "Playing on a narrative" I don't even know what you mean. Im making an honest, legitimate observation.
Chris Haire, who the hell is Chris Haire. Some hack nothing newspaper writer.
No, Foodmancing. You are playing on a narrative. Now you are backtracking because Joan called you out.
@Joan, you need to relax. The point I'm making is spade is used as a racial slur. In a comment defending someone who is accused of being a bigot, the term is used. Its a pretty simple correlation. Im not a liberal, I've never voted for a Dem in my life. I've had three email accounts banned by the P&C for forum comments (Ask Andy Paras). Im not afraid to say something out loud. Im just saying POOR CHOICE OF WORDS TO DEFEND YOUR ARGUMENT. As I said before I've never listened to Rocky D so I have no idea what he says, never less know if he is a bigot. Anyway, enjoy this beautiful day
Foodmancing: I use a spade in my garden to dig dirt and plant beautiful flowers. For you it is a racial slur. Who is the bigot here? Those who are CONSTANTLY looking for racial slurs in EVERY comment. "African" Americans are American people...PERIOD. Stop segregating. BTW, Rocky D says what we're all thinking but because of people like you are afraid to say out. When guys like Rocky D are silenced we all suffer. Bring him back!!!!
