Myrtle Beach is nice this time of year. That’s the opinion of one who spent several years there and loved the winters far better than the summers. There is something that is powerful about the Atlantic Ocean slapping the desolate winter beaches, the wind blowing a chilling wind toward the land, and the gray days that make us all look forward to warmer weather.
Of course, Jon Huntsman had said that he would run in South Carolina primary, but a few days into the politics of the Palmetto State and Huntsman had decided to drop out of the hunt. He didn’t have a snowflakes chance in hell of winning or coming in second, so maybe it was a good decision. Few who endure a primary in S.C. come away unscathed.
Goodbye, Jon. It was fun while it lasted.
