Damn! What the hell is going on with South Carolina Republicans? If producing the likes of Lindsey Graham and Mark Sanford wasn’t bad enough, now we are being bombarded with some real gutter politics against Nikki Haley.
First we have the smear job alleging Haley had an affair with some blogger who is not in her league. Then there is a whisper campaign questioning her faith (is she Sikh or is she Christian). Now we have a Republican state senator referring to her and Obama as “rag heads”:
Politico: 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.
“We already got one raghead in the White House, we don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion."
The people of South Carolina need to get some serious house-cleaning going on. The entrenched “Good Ol Boys” in the Republican Party down there are really cutting up and they are not doing anyone any favors.
