South Carolina's Nasty, Berserker Republicans: Sacred Honor Compels Us To Say Nikki Haley Is Not A Christian And, Furthermore, Is A Raghead

Sacred Honor, catch the fever!


[I]n the nasty game of South Carolina politics, in which Haley has already been accused twice publicly of infidelity, the religion story has a clear political charge. Brody told me in an email that his story was prompted by “a tip from an anonymous source,” and Tim Pearson, Haley’s spokesman, said the story was “being shopped” and that Brody wasn’t the only reporter to call him about it.

A source close to the campaign of one rival — Rep. Gresham Barrett, who touts his Christian faith in his ads — said the Barrett campaign has at least discussed playing the religion card. The source said his aides sometimes refer to her by the Indian name with which she was born, “Nimrata,” in the campaign office.

“They always thought that the relgion thing would be what would save Gresham in the end against Nikki,” said the source, an outside adviser to Barrett who said he was speaking to a reporter because he disliked the notion of attacking Haley on her faith.

And worse yet:

South Carolina Republicans were quick Thursday evening to condemn the remarks of a prominent Republican State Senator, Jake Knotts, who referred to a gubernatorial candidate as a “raghead” on an online political show today.

Knotts, a foe of Governor Mark Sanford and his protege, State Rep. Nikki Haley, made the remark of Haley on the local webcast PubPolitics.

That's it -- I wholeheartedly endorse Nikki Haley, if only because it will make monsters cry.

And nowww comes the breaking point for me, personally, when I simply am no longer willing to credit a single word the Sacred Honor Brigade offers me.

Now, you might ask, what on earth would provoke a large fraction of South Carolina's political class to lose its minds and begin suicide-bombing a single candidate?

Commenters were discussing that last night. Let them put you some information:

tmitsss: The top issue in the governor's race is always "will the Governor try to limit the excesses of the General Assembly or be a willing accomplice. "

Vic: That is one thing that the Sanford detractors try to hang around his neck. That he constantly fought with the SC legislature and "nothing" got done.

Of course that was going from the Dem controlled MFM media here which favors big government. The SC legislature is nominally Republican, but a large portion of them are "converted FDR Democrats" so it is really a Dem controlled legislature.

They believe in "tax and spend" just like Obama. Look at the last major battle with Sanford, a 50 cent a pack tax increase on cigs. He vetoed it and they overrode the veto. That has been the normal thing for the last 8 years.

Moose4: You nailed it. I lived in SC during a lot of Sanford's first term (and the term of his predecessor, Jim "a lottery will fix everything" Hodges). The thing people don't realize about that state, other than the fact that half of it is bugfuck crazy, is that the executive branch of government there is very weak. All the power's in the General Assembly. Up until less than forty years ago, individual state legislators could pretty much fuck with local governments at will in their districts. To an extent, they still have the power to do so. The GA's full of "Republicans" who have a Murtha-esque attachment to pork and spending and are used to getting their way. Sanford came in and proceeded to fight them tooth and nail for both terms every step of the way. In the process, he managed to piss off the fat-cat wing of his own party, guys like Jake Knotts...so when he decided to go "hiking on the AT," he handed them the rope they needed to hang his horny ass.

Here comes Haley now, and she says she's dedicated to the same cut-spending ideals as Sanford, less the Argentinian poontang. So of course the old-boy establishment in SC is going to do everything in their power to take her down. They want one of their boys in there, a Barrett or McMaster or even Bauer. Plus, honestly, they respond to female politicians the same way that a bunch of Team Fortress 2 players would respond to getting fragged by ZOMG A GHURL.

As for Bauer, I called it when this first broke that he was behind it.

So there's your motive, if you're needing a motive to believe in the crime.

By the way, Larry Marchant just wrote me to say he doesn't discriminate against women based on race. "They're all pink on the inside," this notorious ass-crusher reports, then signs off in a cloud of Aquanet and CK One to take longtime secret lover Heather Graham out for a night of dancin' and oral sex, but mostly oral sex.
