South Carolina Sacred Honor Watch: Republican Candidate For Lt. Governor Compelled By His Sacred Honor To Denigrate Opponent's Military Service

What the hell is in the water down there?

Seems some guy named Larry Richter is given to wondering aloud about exactly whether or not his opponent, Bill Connor, actually served in combat or not.

"I don't know whether Bill had combat experience or not," Richter said. "There's a lot of talk about that, but I defer to his account of that."

Not sure what "talk about that" there is but if you follow the link above to Blackfive, you'll see there's ample evidence that Connor did in fact serve in combat and was apparently damn good at his job.

This isn't a one time thing with Richter either.

Keep in mind, Richter is the same guy who mocked Connor’s combat service weeks ago at a meeting of the West Metro Republican Women in Lexington, when he suggested his life-and-death decisions sending five people to the electric chair where “deliberate,” as opposed to a combat-commander’s decision-making which he (Richter ) said is only “abstract,” “reflexive,” and “reactionary” – a clear belittling and a gross misunderstanding of combat leadership which enraged combat veterans around the state.

I hope you're sitting down for this last tidbit of information about Larry Richter, he's been endorsed by Jake "Raghead" Knotts. When you think about it that makes perfect sense. How could Connor have served in combat if hadn't been in India fighting off the Sikh menace?

Seriously South Carolina Republicans...What the hell?

Lindsey Graham emails to say, "I'm not looking so bad now, am I?"
