  •  It is hard as hell to be a Democrat, progressive, (4+ / 0-)

    liberal, in South Carolina. I used to be one, till I moved to Colorado a few years ago. I truly admire the brave and energetic work done by Colbert Busch and her supporters. It was a sad thing to watch the reality of South Carolina politics slap everyone in the face last night.

    Here are a few comments from my friends in Charleston on the front lines...

    I'll say one thing for this election. I am in love with the 31,206 Charlestonians who voted for Elizabeth. I want to meet every single one, personally. You ROCK. Y'all liberals in other parts of the country have no idea how much courage and vision it takes to be Democratic in this part of the world.
    It's like defending a mean boy just because he's pretty. Where shall we live? Someplace where they support environmental science. A place where you can go look at a Rembrandt, a Renoir, a Diebenkorn. Watch a flamenco duo in a bar. Hear Ann Carson read. Be part of a majority liberal establishment. Maybe I will feel different tomorrow, but today I'm tired of working so hard just to make it okay.
    The monumental stupidity of the people of SC has once again revealed itself. Gotta get outa here
    I have never felt this angry at South Carolina.. Utterly hopeless.
