Hollings Unplugged

The Nitty-Gritty Senator (

I got a call from The State today. The reporter wanted to get a comment from Bob Jones University regarding statements Earnest "Fritz" Hollings made to her regarding the school. She pointed me to the above story as an example of some the type of comments he made.

The BJU quotation (he calls the administration "jackasses") doesn't bother me in the least. Been called worse. However, the rest of the interview is embarrassing! I wonder how many times he can use Jesus as a curse word? And there is more...

When asked for a comment, I had to pause. What do you say when someone calls you a jackass? So I said something like, "Hmmmm, how do you respond to that? I'm speechless. I guess I can say I'm not surprised. I would expect him to say something like that about Bob Jones University. We are a very conservative institution and we would not be in agreement with most of his positions."

I can't wait to read what he says about us in The State piece.
