South Carolina GOP Expected To Make History Tonight By Somehow Nominating Minorities, Woman

by Jack Stuef

SAY WHAT? Wasn't that guy almost just elected our first Dixiecrat president five minutes ago?What a wacky, wacky twist. “Wait a second, you’re telling me South Carolina’s going to nominate a black instead of the son of the guy who liked to segregate said minority but secretly made babies with his family’s 16-year-old maid who was of that race?” YES, YES, WHAT HAS BECOME OF SOUTH CAROLINA? State legislator Tim Scott is the SC-1 candidate who has captured their hearts, yet he is a black guy? What a very, very quick and amusing twist that only took decades to happen. Of course, it took Scott being a Teabagger extremist and making Paul Thurmond look like a librul sissy in comparison to blind people to the fact that he is black. But then you have to consider that Nikki Haley is also expected to win her nomination for governor, and she is also a minority and a WOMAN, so what is going on?

National Republicans have invested heavily in promoting a diverse slate of candidates for House races this year. Michael S. Steele, chairman of the Republican National Committee, notes in speeches that the party recruited 32 African Americans for public office, more than ever.

THIRTY-TWO? THIRTY-TWO? That is like 32 times the number of Michael Steeles the Republican party currently has! That number of candidates could play three basketball games simultaneously and STILL have two subs!

Scott is the only one expected to win, but Republicans have not had a black member in the House since J.C. Watts left in 2003, so they are super excited to go from “remember that token guy?” to “look! token guy!”

YES, it is sad that a Thurmond has to be defeated for this to happen. But the GOP’s here to rap / it’s a rappin’ ’bout diversity / it’s putting minorities on the map / finishing Dr. King’s battle against adversity.

Certainly this will go according to plan in South Carolina tonight. Certainly the polls will be right, and there will be no iota of bias against either of these minority candidates. Certainly, as this is South Carolina. [Washington Post]

Isn’t Paul Thurmond like the last living veteran of the Civil War?

This is what The LORD does to states whose governor can’t stay faithful to his wife — and can’t even cheat on her with a God-fearing American. And if South Carolina persists in its wicked ways, the next plague is literacy.

It’s opposite day!

JMP June 22, 2010 at 4:49 pm

Nikki Haley’s proven that a light-skinned minority who changes her name and religion to pass as a white Christian can actually win a Republican nomination in the South; as well as proving that women can also cheat on their husbands and still win elections. What a victory for tolerance!

A female black Republican teabagger is something that just doesn’t exist in nature. The only explantion is that she’s must be an alien.

Strom would be spinning in his grave if those white robes weren’t so damn bulky.

The GOP has a big tent. It doesn’t matter if you are a cracker, a darky, a slant-eyed gook, a dot Indian, a feather Indian, or a beaner. Just so long as you love torture and being a whore for corporations set on world domination and ecocide and hate workers, poors, enviro-nazis, and “illegals”. It’s a bonus if you can yell Socialist everytime someone tries to reign in the corporate dominance a little.

Potater June 22, 2010 at 6:32 pm

Can they play this on a constant loop at polling centers?

or better yet

harry palmer June 22, 2010 at 6:57 pm

Now that government is so clearly the abject servant of its corporate masters, perhaps Strom, John C Calhoun, and all the other departed giants of SC politics would be down with electing the coloreds. Strom would no doubt think Nikki Haley was some tasty dark meat.

I’m sorry, the Nikster is too white to pass for colored. Was this achieved by keeping her indoors for the last five years or via Michael Jackson-type bleaching agents? Full-on vitiligo?

Are we sure Tim Scott is not one of Strom’s illegitimate children?
