All regions of the nation have their own styles of political corruption, but something I tripped on today in the Myrtle Beach area takes the cake in terms of bad timing and superb irony. While shopping for lunch items at the local supermarket in Pawleys Island this morning, I decided to pick up the Myrtle Beach Sun News. I didn't look closely at the newspaper until I returned to the condo and sat down to lunch with my wife. If the dining room table hadn't been in the way, I might have doubled over in laughter. I won't say anything more except look closely at the item immediately to the left of the stick-on advertisement for the candidate. You have to wonder how the person or persons who paid for the ad feel about it today. Unless, of course, the candidate paid for it, in which case maybe he was trying to get his money back by accepting the alleged bribe. Priceless.
