Nikki Haley overcame the GOP party and multiple attacks on her character by various GOP 'operatives' to win the Republican Primary in South Carolina with 49% of the vote, easily outdistancing Jack 'The Knotthead' Knotts and Andre 'My Dinner With' Bauer, leaving her to complete a two 'man' runoff election with second place finisher U.S. Representative Gresham Barrett, who received 21% of the vote. The runoff will be held June 22nd.
I have to tell you, of all the stupid baloney I have heard in my life, about the silliest of all occurred when GOP consultant Larry Marchant of the Bauer campaign and fellow GOP hack and blogger Will Folks attempted to derail this woman's campaign by claiming they had intimate knowledge of her.
Right. Thanks guys. Dream on.
The claims were so bizarre, so obtuse, so completely and utterly out of bounds that it resulted in the creation of a Sixth Rule by he who giveth rules for blogging, which was summed up in hilarious fashion by Bob Belvedere here. "Thou shalt not be a total douchebag." Good words to live by, all ye who are so witless as to disparage a woman's good name.
Look, where I come from it's considered boorish to be sharing made up stories of supposed conquests, and if you actually are so lucky as to gain the affections of a woman, you sure as hell don't talk yourself up on the details. These guys were unbelievably pathetic. I guess it takes all types, but sheesh! Come on South Carolina, you've got to have some better examples of manhood out there.
