Obama: Kanye is a Jackass; South Carolina is an idiot

Gay fish.

Have I mentioned lately that I am completely embarrassed to be from South Carolina sometimes.

South Carolina is very special in its politics.  Disregarding my own sentiments, it comes from an incredible religious, right wing background, that focuses on keeping the majority black and poor population from becoming politically powerful.  The state has terrible education, and you’ll probably recall that Mark Sanford, Mr. Appalachian Trail himself, made headlines long before that by refusing to take the stimulus money.

Meanwhile, the Republican party has waffled and wavered on asking him to step down because of the barely contained contempt they seem to have for one Lt. Gov Bauer.  Bauer has been arrested for speeding, calling the cops not to stop him from speeding because he was Lt. Gov, and he crashed a plane.  So, I mean, he’s a really cool guy.  He’s also unmarried and a rumoured homosexual.

The other problem is that one of the most powerful Republicans is third in line and doesn’t want to lose power by becoming Lt. Gov, a pretty meaningless position. It’s as if the Party is having to choose between Sanford limping to the finish, or the real risk of Bauer becoming governor and running with that advantage next election cycle.
