Have liberals already conceded defeat in today's South Carolina special election? Though polls show the race a true toss-up, some Democrats are attacking not just Republicans, but smearing the entire state as well.
During today's Stephanie Miller Show, guest Charlie Pierce of Esquire Magazine slammed the Palmetto State as "tribal", "a cult" and the ultimate dig, "religious"! From the program:
STEPHANIE MILLER (07 May 2013): The cogent point in your headline South Carolina is still South Carolina.
JIM WARD: Ha ha ha ha!
STEPHANIE MILLER: Obviously the latest poll had Mark Sanford ahead, right?
CHARLIE PIERCE: And you know I I I I I appreciate that it that the fact that its that competitive is an amazing thing, but its still South Carolina.
STEPHANIE MILLER: Right.
CHARLIE PIERCE: But its still South Carolina.
STEPHANIE MILLER: Right because.
CHARLIE PIERCE: I mean and a and a its still tribal and its still religious and its still a cult. Its not about politics here.
STEPHANIE MILLER: And as you say its South Caro freaking lina.
CHARLIE PIERCE: Yeah.
STEPHANIE MILLER: What do people expect?
CHARLIE PIERCE: Right.
As a former columnist for the stuffy Boston Globe, Pierce is well-versed in parochial snobbery, but it's hard to imagine how this kind of loose talk is constructive for his "progressive" friends.
As a life long resident of the great state of South Carolina I would just like to say, "Well, bless your hearts."
I would also like to extend an invitation to the both of you to be in the family way with yourselves at your earliest convenience.
With deepest regards,
Like the editorial droids at Esquire aren’t a cult....
Frigging elitist east coast morons. I can’t wait for the Crash. It’ll be fun watching them be consumed by the mobs.
When I moved to Columbia SC in 1988, I was exploring my new city and drove downtown to see the State House. I was shocked to see the Confederate flag flying on top of the dome. (Not angered or offended...just amazed that it was there.)
They need to put it back and take down the flag of the Beltway Empire.
Who is Stephanie Miller, and why should I give a rat’s arse what she thinks?
just perfect....”well bless your hearts”....my first response too
Cherokee or Cree???
Huh, why bring in religion. Its not like the two contendors actually practice it faithfully!
Stephanie Miller was a washed up morning shock jock for WCMF “Brother Wease Morning Circus” in Rochester many years ago. Her radio name was “Sister Sleaze.” After that she joined lib radio circuit as a talk show host. She became a legend in her own mind.
As far as your second question about why you should give a rat’s arse about what she thinks, you shouldn’t. She is a typical lib POS.
The Confederate flag still flies at the State House. Just not on top of it. Every now and then somebody gets uppity about that and tries to get it taken down. Never happen.

I know. It just isn’t the same as flying on top of the dome.
“”Well, bless your hearts.”
From a Tennessean, LOL!
Ah, enlightenment. Thank you for summing that up!
The fine citizens of SC threw this types of scalawags and carpet-baggers out of our state in the 1870’s and we’ll gladly do so again if necessary!
