Shealy party a hootenanny

Originally uploaded by johnvierdsen

For those of us proles, Rod Shealy’s Christmas party is one of the highlights of the holiday season. Even while the place is packed, there’s enough booze and food to satisfy a crowd twice the size.

Among the VIPs were U.S. Rep. Joe Wilson (with Preston Grisham tied at his hip), Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, State Sen. Jake Knotts, State Sen. Ronnie Cromer, State Rep. Nathan Ballentine (though Vierdsen missed him because John was talking to a girl, natch), State Rep. Anton Gunn, GOP operative Mike Green (who still has an S.C. Hotline sticker on his car, and likes a Crown and Diet Coke), Democratic operative Zeke Stokes and a bevy of other friends and well-wishers who gathered to celebrate the season.

Among the best food were the platters delivered by Zaxby’s and Zorbas. Mmm, mmm, good. Unfortunately, there was no Chick-fil-A (curses!) and Captain Morgan seems to have been at sea. Still, saying that is like wishing your team won by 21 instead of 10. It’s unusual that one Christmas gathering will have average working Joes rubbing elbows with the state’s political elite, so it can be assured that, as the cliche goes, a good time was had by all.
