    Rather than channel the "You stay classy, San Diego" line from Anchorman, I'm going to channel another line from the movie:

    Go **** yourself Jake Knotts.

    Nothing like a little alcohol to loosen the tongue at let the good folks know what you really think.

    Seems like they've got a white sheet-shrouded head in the S.C. State Senate.

    I don't know whats funnier, the fact that he was being clearly racist on TV or the fact that he can't differentiate between arabs and other races.

    I for one want to congratulate South Carolina on its recent heroic efforts to claim the title of "Most Publicly Embarrassing State" from the long-time reigning champion, Alabama. Keep at it and one day, in your honor, we may see fit to revise the unofficial state motto to "Thank God for Mississippi and South Carolina."

    Yeah Obama is many things but he's least of all a "rag head."

    I believe the actual garment is called a ghutra an iqal.

    Agreed, this guy is a complete idiot. Hopefully he gets voted out of office in the next election.

    He should at least wear a suit jacket with that outfit - its slimming.

    Y'all have no idea. You really don't. And the more local the government / political entity, the more embarrassing / entrenched / benighted you get.

    But rest assured, such views are not universal. Thankfully.

    Only a suit jacket made by Omar the Tentmaker would be slimming on him.

    I think we found Rush Limbaugh's separated-at-birth twin.

    Sigh.

    I just want one week without my state being Daily Show fodder.

    One. Week.

    Is that too much to ask?

    So naturally, this won't be a big story at all and will have no effect if he keeps his seat at all.

    WTF is up with all the war related lies from politicians (both sides) lately? :confused:

    Do they not realize they are....politicians? People (usually) fact check these people.

    From my city, thankyouverymuch!

    Honestly - what I think is going to happen is that Haley will get a huge sympathy bump and easily win the primary on Tuesday. (Even without the rumors, I think she would have won).

    Believe it or not, Love-Gov Sanford is not part of the SC GOP-Establishment. They can't stand him, either.

    Just curious, how can you tell from this photo that he could have made such an inappropriate statement? I hope you aren't racial profiling.
