Blind Squirrel department.


As she does every now and then, more then than now, Maureen Dowd gets it right this morning. I particularly liked this brief summary of  the South Carolina GOP:

The state that fired the first shot of the Civil War has now given us this: Senator Jim DeMint exhorted conservatives to “break” the president by upending his health care plan. Rusty DePass, a G.O.P. activist, said that a gorilla that escaped from a zoo was “just one of Michelle’s ancestors.” Lovelorn Mark Sanford tried to refuse the president’s stimulus money. And now Joe Wilson.

“A good many people in South Carolina really reject the notion that we’re part of the union,” said Don Fowler, the former Democratic Party chief who teaches politics at the University of South Carolina…. He said a state legislator not long ago tried to pass a bill to nullify any federal legislation with which South Carolinians didn’t agree.

God bless America….even those who’d just as soon leave it as love it.
