Nikki Haley Appoints a Crackpot to Replace another Crackpot

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) appointed Rep. Tim Scott on Monday to fill Jim DeMint's Senate seat at a press conference in the Palmetto State.

Flanked by the other Republican members of the state's congressional delegation, Haley named Scott as the state's next senator to follow DeMint when he resigns next month to take over the top position at the Heritage Foundation.

Scott said he was thankful for the opportunity, and opened his remarks with a moment of silence for the victims of the Newtown, Conn. shooting last week. And he sounded a decidedly conservative tone.

"We have a spending problem, ladies and gentlemen, in America. Not a revenue problem," he said.

4. Congress was short an Uncle Ruckus after Allen West was thrown out.

Looks like the writers for the late night comedy shows are breathing a sigh of relief.

10. If anybody on the left criticizes Scott for any reason

expect the Republicans to start playing the race card and indignantly accusing us of racism and reminding everybody of how Democrats were against civil rights, etc. Count on it.........

14. The Cons are proud of their crackpots there..

Keep them in the spotlight to show how destructive they are.

Bush and Cheney had a Spending problem that they didn't pay for and left our Country with Trilions in debt when they were left a Surplus from Pres Clinton. What are Scott's(another Scott) thoughts on that? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMM?
