Did you think that anti-reform in South Carolina has any limits?
If you did, let me break it to you: no, it doesn’t. The video (via Palmetto State Politics) is here: flip ahead to 5:53, where Lt. Governor candidate Larry Richter casually calls into question the combat service of Lt. Governor candidate Bill Connor. Repeatedly. With a smirking sneer and a greasy awareness that he won’t get decked for it. Some points to address there: Bill | Read More »
Die In A Fire, You Vicious Racist Scumbag
I didn’t address State Sen. Jake Knotts’ “raghead” comments earlier, because I had little to say to the refuted man, save for some rather colorful words. Today, he proved himself even more odious than even first thought. Via Hot Air (emphasis theirs): He claims she is hiding her religion and he wants the voters to know about it. “We got a raghead in Washington; we | Read More »
Nikki Haley Doubles Down on Truth
From the Political Wire, we learn Nikki Haley will resign if the allegations against her are proven true. Host: “If something comes out after you win the primary, or after you win the general election become South Carolina’s next governor, if something were to come out that validates the claims that have been made against you — in terms of stepping out on your husband | Read More »
So, if you’ve been watching the Nikki Haley smear attempts…
…and you are absolutely sick and tired of the way that self-appointed ‘elites’ will stop at nothing in order to keep secure their place at the twin troughs of power and money; if you are appalled that in 2010 – 2010 – a politician from any party would think that his petty privileges are worth smearing the public reputation of not only his constituents, but | Read More »
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 | Read More »
Nikki Haley guts Andre Bauer on live television.
Get yourself a glass of something nice, first. This is from a candidate forum from earlier in the evening, where Nikki Haley redresses one week’s worth of filthy innuendos in roughly five minutes, at the expense of Lt. Gov Andre Bauer. You should watch the entire thing… See also Hot Air and Ace of Spades. [And here's some useful AmSpec background.] [And check out the | Read More »

I can’t say that I am surprised by the level of aggravation and acrimony in the comments of my “Letting the Chips Fall” post. I certainly promised more than I delivered. You should have seen the first six drafts. They were much better. For the few cheery souls remaining, I appreciate that you got the point — it’s exactly what Will Folks has been doing, | Read More »
At RedState we’ve hammered for a long time the idea that your local politics matter. We also give plenty of attention to federal elections for the House, the Senate, and of course the President. But governors matter, too. The next governor of South Carolina will affect us all. As will Georgia’s, Ohio’s, and Oregon’s. It doesn’t matter where you live. These Governors, as well as | Read More »

Lean times for Spratt?
According to an internal poll of Mick Mulvaney’s discovered by National Journal, the South Carolina Republican has gained 11 points on 14 term Democrat John Spratt of the 5th district. If the Chairman of the Budget Committee can’t use his seniority to keep his seat safe, then I would expect to see a wave nationwide.

Lynching Nikki Haley
“They’ve strung up Nikki Haley — skipping the issues, skipping the ethics, skipping experience, and going straight to calling her a whore. But they’ve shown nothing.” It was Clarence Thomas who talked about the high tech lynching the left put him through during his confirmation battle. The left went straight for the pubic hair on the coke can — forget everything about his qualifications, intelligence, | Read More »
