Some contributors have accused me of picking on South Carolina. You know, I just don’t think I do. I think they dangle it out there for us to poke at. That state is the gift that keeps on giving. You don’t even need to remember what they did last…there always seems to be something new.
The latest set of incidents is much like the Twelve Days of Christmas. First you have a woman running for governor of the Palmetto State, NIkki Haley. Nikki has been accused of having an affair with a blogger named Will Folks and a lobbyist named Larry Marchant. Nikki was born a Sikh. She converted to Christianity.
(Is it getting good yet?) Nikki is also a Tea Party Person. The blogger has said he had a physical relationship with her and the lobbyist insists he had a one night stand with her in Utah. Sarah Palin endorses her and Governor Mark Sanford’s wife defends her. A state senator has called her a ‘rag head’ because her parents immigrated from India. Nikki says she is a Methodist.
According to the Charlotte Observer:
Virginia politics seems so clean and boring after checking out South Carolina. Politics as usual? I certainly hope not. No wonder we can’t get good people in office. This is far better than any soap opera. Some of these good ole boys will stop at nothing, will they? Oh and the ‘raghead in Washington’ comment made by Senator Jake Knotts was referring to the President of the United States. Good grief! Chivalry is definitely dead.
