    Well you lefties rush over to the other thread for Wilson's hand-slapping ceremony. Take a condom with you so you don't come in your hand.

    That's only from one of the agencies cited. Comments on the story are running mostly against Wilson's behavior, as does public opinion, both in the SC polls and nat'l poll's.

    People don't like what he did, regardless of what politically interested people on a message board think.

    I guess, in the end, time will tell.

    Wasn't it, like, 147 people that said they were going to boycott South Carolina?

    147 + dozens + 100 (from the excerpt quoted in the OP).


    Not huge numbers, but enough that it made the local paper.

    First of all, Wilson doesn't represent Myrtle Beach. Furthermore, do you honestly believe that people are going to cancel their vacation over this? Yeah, sure they will....

    I don't think anyone but hyperpartisan liberals actually care.

    I don't know exactly where his district extends, but I recall it starts inland below mid-state level and stretches in a skinny curve toward the coast.

    And, nope, they won't cancel, but yup, they'll go someplace else.

    So, less than a thousand? I'm bettin' that the South Carolina touraist industry is probaby thinking, "big woop!", over those numbers.
