  •  South Carolina: Producing crazies since 1832 (0+ / 0-)

    I don't think it is a coincidence that this guy is from South Carolina.  It is a state which seems to produce some of the worst, most anti-democratic politicians in the country.

    Remember, it was South Carolina which tried to "nullify" a federal law in 1832 and wanted to start a secession movement at that time but failed.  It was a South Carolina Congressman who almost beat Sen. Charles Sumner to death on the floor of the Senate in the 1850's.  

    And it was South Carolina which was the first state to secede in 1860, even before Lincoln was sworn in as President and then it was South Carolina which fired the first shot in the civil war.

    Then, in the last century, it was South Carolina which produced Strom Thurmond, the guy who wanted to run for President in 1948 on the segregation, "states' rights" platform.

    South Carolina - your breeding ground for violent, anti-democractic, racist crazies since 1832.
