Poor South Carolina. Too small to be a nation, and too large to be an insane asylum.

My wife is going out with some friends tonight, and assuming (god willing) that the girls go to sleep fine, at home it’s just going to be me, the GOP debate, and my liquor cabinet. I don’t know any drinks that are particular to South Carolina, but down Dixie way you have to assume bourbon is involved. So maybe an Old Fashioned is in order, or perhaps a Bourbon Stone Sour.
I’ll probably just be drinking straight from the bottle by the time they are finished with the questions on executive power. We could call that drink a Modern Whig: chug bourbon, smash bottle, use glass to slit wrists. Cheers!
At any rate, I’m going to live-tweet this thing at @MattGlassman312, so check it out. And enjoy the debate.
And anyone local to me, c’mon over. I’ve got plenty of liquor.
