The Berkeley Independent: Scott On Way to Big Win

The Tim Scott event last night was fantastic, and it was great to spend some time with an inspiring group of Lowcountry Republicans.  But it’s not so much the story by the Berkeley Independent which renders it worthy of Assigned Reading — instead, it’s the fact that at the link in question, two things jump out as noteworthy:

First, my enormous forehead is prominently on display.  In the background of the first photo showing Tim Scott (photo taken by Frank Johnson), you can clearly see my forehead–a five-head, really–taking up quite a bit of visual real estate as I engage in some LiveTwittering.  Also in the background with me is fellow conservative blogger Susannah Fleetwood, who writes regularly for RedState and for John Hawkins at RightWingNews.  We met at FreedomWorks’ BlogCon up in Washington, D.C. back in September, and it was nice seeing her and her husband again.

The second thing which jumps out at me from the Berkeley Independent article is the nature of the first (and so far only) comment.  Read for yourself:

Scott is an idiot right winger and a sell out. Clyburn is a great statesman and stands with the people. Scott is a lap dog for the special corporate state intrests who support the billionaires and oppress the people. Now we will see how bad it gets. With the Republicans in charge be prepared to be sent to concentration camps and see para-military in the street (ie Blackwater). We have lost our freedoms in this country. Republicans=DEATH!!!

If you want to know why, on every electoral map you see, the state of South Carolina has a giant blue blob in the middle of it, look no further than Mr. Patrrick C. Labbe.  That “blue blob” is South Carolina’s sixth congressional district, home to “great stateman” James Clyburn, and Mr. Patrrick C. Labbe is a typical Clyburn voter.

Unfortunately, the sixth congressional district is a lot like my five-head: expansive, though beautiful in places.  (Kidding.)  Unlike my five-head, however, SC-6 is also the most gerrymandered district in the state, and possibly one of the most gerrymandered districts in the country.  Therefore, as awful and unfortunate as it may be, it will likely take a talented, black congressional candidate–much like Tim Scott–to depose Clyburn and restore sanity to … well … those who, unlike Mr. Patrrick C. Labbe, are not already too far gone.

    Patrrick C. Labbe, isn’t that what you Democrats call hate speech? There should be a law against your kind of talk–well, there is! And, you Democrats wrote and passed it.

    Reminds me of “do as I say and not as I do.”

  3. Gail B. says:

    Uhmm — has anyone else noticed that hardly anyone was emailing last night except for the “Breaking News Media” for election results?

    Also wonder if Democrats thought of them as “Breaking Wind Media” because nearly everything stunk for Dems!

    Nice pics and congratulations to Congressman Tim Scott (who has better upbringing than Barbara “Call Me Senator” Boxer)!
