— Reading about the governor’s Christmas gift brought several thoughts to mind — is this what she calls “transparency”? I think posting something like this on her Facebook page looks infantile. It is something that the teenagers do: Posting all of their personal behavior is childish and comes across as braggadocio.

Come on, governor — grow up. Post something that matters to many people — perhaps expanding Medicaid. That would impact more South Carolinians in a positive way.
