Republican Statists Reveal Themselves
Hogan mentioned Bob Bennett’s comments earlier. Bennett thought it beneath him and outside conservatism to think the constitution may limit him, a senator, from legislating. Well, over in South Carolina, Daniel Foster points out another example, defeated Republican Bob Inglis. Inglis, defeated in a Republican primary by tea party activists, has shared what he really thinks of conservatives — they are racist, bigotted, and easily | Read More »

Better the Christian Hating Lesbian Than the Black Man
Stuff like this is probably why Alvin Greene is the Democrats’ Senate candidate in South Carolina. Greene, a man with no home, no money, and no job, beat the Democrats’ hand picked candidate for the right to lose to Jim DeMint in South Carolina. The Democrats are pounding their fists on the table claiming it was a dirty trick. This is an intentional distraction. Why | Read More »
The Christianity Scam
The Christ died. On the third day he rose again from the dead. There will be a last day and he will return to judge the living and the dead. As the Bible says, “To the weak I became weak, to win the weak. I have become all things to all men so that by all possible means I might save some.” (1 Cor. 9:22). | Read More »
Guess Who Is Ahead in South Carolina?

State of the Race: Tim Scott (R CAND, SC-01).
Tim is the front-runner in the GOP primary runoff for SC-01, and he took the time to talk with us about the state of the race and why he’s running. Tim’s site is here: he’s a state representative and former Charleston County official. The runoff is June 22nd.

Failed Gubernatorial Nominee Goes Nuclear On The State Legislative Black Caucus
South Carolina just gets better and better. I mean, just when you think it’s run out of insanity, what with flamingly “southern” Republican lobbyists and lying bloggers trying to take out Nikki Haley, State Senator Jake Knotts resorting to racial slurs, and a random unemployed dude landing the Democrat nomination for US Senate – not to mention a sitting Governor who goes missing and shows up | Read More »
Told You So
I told you so. CNN is confirming what I’ve said since before election results were in Tuesday night. Jim DeMint is not going to endorse in the South Carolina runoff. Gresham Barrett has been touting his ties to DeMint and sending out mail with them on it together. He has been suggesting and expecting an endorsement. That will not come. Considering the two are close | Read More »
What is it About South Carolina’s Male Politicians?
I realize they don’t like getting beaten by a woman and Nikki Haley is the first woman in South Carolina to get so far, but Gresham Barrett is off to a rough start in the runoff. First Barrett says character is all that counts: “Character is not one of the things that matters,” he said. “It’s the only thing that matters.” Then he immediately tells | Read More »
Alvin Greene (D CAND, SC-SEN) up on felony charge.
You know, South Carolinian political shenanigans are ever so much more fun when they’re not aimed at anybody on your side: South Carolina’s surprise Democratic nominee to challenge U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint is facing a pending felony charge. Court records show 32-year-old Alvin Greene was arrested in November and charged with showing obscene Internet photos to a University of South Carolina student. The felony charge | Read More »
The Most Dangerous Woman
They called Nikki Haley a whore. They called her a raghead. Now they better start practicing calling her Governor. Nikki Haley came within a percentage point or two of avoiding a runoff for the Republican nomination in South Carolina. Despite all the smears and all the foul play, she is a winner. The second place finisher, Congressman Gresham Barrett, goes into the runoff roughly 27% | Read More »
Haley looking to avoid runoff in today’s primary [Updated x 2]
PPP’s latest on the South Carolina Governor’s race doesn’t even cover the Democrats. The assumption must be that Vincent Sheheen has it wrapped up, I suppose. So, on to the Republican side, where Nikki Haley hopes to win an absolute majority and avoid a runoff.

Jim DeMint Has Not Endorsed Gresham Barrett.
Gresham Barrett is trotting around South Carolina alluding to a Jim DeMint endorsement to combat Sarah Palin and Mitt Romney endorsing Nikki Haley. There’s just one problem. Jim DeMint has not endorsed Gresham Barrett. In fact, DeMint has been upfront about staying out of the primary and I cannot imagine him endorsing Gresham Barrett over a conservative rockstar like Nikki Haley. This is an act | Read More »
PPP: SC-GOV Haley/Barrett 43/23.
