First came the libertarian S.C. Policy Council to argue that the deal lawmakers gave Boeing was unnecessary and wasteful.

Then came Republican S.C. Sens. Glenn McConnell and Hugh Leatherman to argue that the Policy Council is, basically, a passel of freakin' idiots.

So take your pick: pro-business or anti-pork. Which flavor of South Carolina conservatism deserves to call itself truly conservative? Go to FITSNews and join the scrum.
