Where Else but South Carolina?

From the place Jon Stewart dubbed the United States’ political “whoopee cushion,” we now have this:

Dog Brings End to Master’s School Board Bid: Labrador mix chews up petition with almost 200 signatures

Even your dog wants you to lose.

I bet he's a plant for the other party.

Of course this is the sort of thing that would only happen in South Carolina, the home of such impossibly weird luminaries as Mark Sanford and Alvin Greene.

At least the canine-thwarted would-be politician in question, a retiree and substitute teacher named Terry Thomas, has a sense of humor about his predicament. He now says he’s inclined to believe students who give him the old “dog ate my homework” excuse.
