South Carolina Politics in a Single Sentence

Whether it's trying to nullify federal law in the 1830's or Mark Sanford's recent "hiking trip", my home state is rarely seen as a hotbed for mainstream political debate. The most recent controversy is the GOP gubernatorial primary featuring an up and coming, Sarah Palin endorsed, already accused adulteress, Nikki Haley. This article describing the ugly primary quotes from an old state legislator who perfectly describes politics in the palmetto state:
South Carolina is too small to be a republic and too large to be an insane asylum.

  1. You're right that SC has never been big on political debate, but it has long been the reigning champions of political insanity, which is why that sentence accurately sums up the milieu.



You are the reason why I do not write privately. I would love to hear your thoughts, whether you agree or not.
