South Carolina has established a new low for electing an incompetent fool to office. The white Republican voters of the first district of South Carolina successfully elected a three term do-nothing ex-Congressman and philandering thief as governor back into the House of Representatives. A man who has lied to his wife and kids, stolen money from the state, endorsed legislation against women, minorities, and workers won the election by 9% over a very qualified white woman. One has to wonder what the voters in that district like about Mark Sanford. Obviously, they were not interested in electing someone who was interested in their issues unless their issues are to suppress women, minorities, and promote the goals of low taxes for the rich. Whatever their reasoning, it is apparent that a state that has previously elected Lindsey Graham, Tom Scott, and Jim DeMint is not concerned with having representation that benefits the less than wealthy. But then as the great sage Ann Coulter says "People in South Carolina would elect Hitler if he were a Republican."
Comments to think about.
