The Andre Bauer Campaign Strategy: From Wh*re to ‘Raghead’ With David Brody In Between

Well, Andre Bauer’s campaign to paint Nikki Haley as a two-timing wh*re — and you’ll have to forgive me if you object to the word, but that is exactly what the dribbling out of “I slept with Nikki Haley” stories was designed to do — blew up in his face.Now he’s moved on to her being a raghead. What’s funny is that the same players are involved in both stories, but this time they’ve roped in CBN’s David Brody. That’s a bold statement, I know, but let’s treat it as fact whether Brody protests or not. Why? Because it is.The fact is, a lot of Andre Bauer’s core backers run in circles that would give them easy access to David Brody, who is CBN’s White House correspondent and a man who claimed those of us noting Barack Obama’s support of infanticide in the Illinois legislature, which is an objective fact, were being “shrill” for pointing it out. David Brody is also the reporter who showed up on CNN a while back to talk about what was happening at a totally off the record meeting.In a search of David Brody’s “Brody Files” website today, he has never before written about Nikki Haley. Then lo and behold, today David Brody writes about Nikki Haley’s religious background and notes that when she first ran for office, the press played up her background as a Sikh and her campaign website did not mention she is a Methodist.Then we get this curious paragraph:

The fact that the Haley campaigned changed the wording on the website led The Brody File to do some digging. The Brody File has uncovered documents and details that show an emphasis on her Sikh faith and traditions in 2004 when she was running for the State Legislature (even though she became a Christian 7 years earlier)

What a load of nonsense. David Brody did not do any digging. Andre Bauer’s campaign fed him all the information and he willingly unleashed the hit job. He claims he was interested because of the recent allegations of “affairs,” but never goes there where everyone else has been. He goes off on this tangent.Then guess what?Andre Bauer’s primary supporter in the state legislature, the man who tried to force out Mark Sanford in a bid to get Bauer into the Governor’s mansion, goes on a political show and calls Nikki Haley a rag head. (More at Red Dog Report)Jake Knotts is the guy. You know him. He’s allegedly the guy who hired a private investigator to look into Will Folks. He is the guy whose private investigator allegedly took a picture proving the affair. It’s all too convenient. Let me break it down for you: Andre Bauer failed in his bid to paint Nikki Haley as a wh*re, so now he’s trying to paint her as a raghead. David Brody is serving as the useful idiot, most likely willingly. The story got out there this morning and Jake Knotts let loose this afternoon. It’s all designed to move the conversation from “is she a wh*re?” to “is she an American?”Were Nikki Haley as sleazy as Andre Bauer, I bet we’d start seeing all the salacious Andre Bauer rumors percolating again.
