There Must Be Something in the Water.

What is it with South Carolina anyway?

Republican Governor Mark Sanford said he was hiking the Appalachian Trail when, in fact, he was shacked up with his mistress in Argentina.

Then there was Congressman Joe Wilson, also a Republican, who shouted out "You lie!" at President Obama during the State of the Union speech.

The latest disgrace comes from this good il' boy, South Carolina State Senator Jake Knotts. (Yes, he, too, is a Republican.) In speaking of gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley, who is an ethnic Indian (that is, Indian as opposed to Native American), Knotts made this sickening comment:

“We already got one raghead in the White House, we don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion."

Nikki Haley is, by the way, a Republican.

Not everyone in South Carolina a bigot. Knotts remark has prompted someone to run against him in the upcoming Republican primary.
