DeMint Wants Scott to Replace Him

I am not familiar with SC's politics, but I assume that, if it is DeMint's choice, it is a bad choice.

Edit: Ed Kilgore has more

Word’s just in that DeMint himself is dropping hints that his preferred successor is exactly the guy early speculation is focusing on: U.S. Rep. Tim Scott of Charleston, a hard-core right-wing African-American first elected to the House in 2010.

1. The 2016 plan is to insert as many women and minority tokens as possible.

Because their base, white males, will not elect them.

2. Think Allen West without the name recognition

 

He's as big a teabagger as they come.

It's up to Nicki Halley, though, and the baggers have been on her case since before she took office.

3. Ok,

 

I think their strategy is to get as many tokens they can to tell lies. What I mean by that. I was watching this so called Black Reverend C.L. Bryant tell his lies about the History of African Americans in the South. I was very surprised that Black mayor from Atlanta let him get away with such distortions of history on MS NBC and didn't correct this token idiot of the Tea Party. The biggest distortion is associating the racist Democratic Party of the past with the current Democratic Party for Jim Crow, while this idiot aligns himself with so many of the white racists that actually fled from the Democratic Party and found a home in his current Republican Party of the South. Why the hell do Democratic representatives let idiots like that distort history, I don't know. And what is worst, he called 93 percent of African Americans that voted for President Obama slaves. We had idiots that owned slaves and supported the Confederacy too. No wonder such tokens are called sell outs. I have no respect for opportunists. And they are worse than the racists, they align themselves with!

4. It will be interesting

If the Dems nominate a white male, will the racists in SC to vote for a African American (you know what they will really call him) over a good old white boy? Or will the kind of election crap that DeMint enjoyed last time be used again, with an unqualified, clearly troubled stooge 'nominated' to challenge the Repub in the general election?

7. All the Democrats

 

has to do is recruit young African Americans, that are educated and challenge such frauds, that distort African American History! These African Americans that go out and Distort African American History are phonies and just opportunists for money. That is the only thing they see. The young African American mayor has a Degree from Howard University and should have known the lies this token was spitting out. That infuriates me. The same as Mia Love and Condeleeza Rice with their distortations and try to paint the majority of us as some kinda sheep! C.L. Bryant hides behind that Reverand label as if African Americans will flock to him. I can say the same about Mr J.C. Watts too. C.L. Bryant's claims to enlightenment about racism was none other than a conversation with Rush Limbaugh! That is his claim and Rush saved him!

5. I hope the Gov gets ensnared in a scheme to sell off her appointment, like the jailed Gov of Il. nt

8. If that was truly their plan
