When Harper Lee received an honorary degree from Notre Dame, the graduates

Boo, carry her home......

My 2nd report on the South Carolina Primaries:

Marco said Nikki Haley was more than qualified to be vice-president. This raised the question if he was old enough to drink 'shine' and where he got it.

W was around the state campaigning for Jeb. I'm afraid what he said was lost amid the speculation about what the hell happened to his hair.

Trump was busy threatening to sue Cruz for lying and demanding that the RNC rein him in. That sound you hear is a brazillion South Carolinians laughing.

I have no idea where Carson is. Probably sleeping if his debate performances are any indication.

Kasich is busy pretending to be moderate. He's sort of pulling that off when he is compared to the competition. Strom Thurmond would look positively statesmanlike compared to that bunch.

Everything is ramping up and mud is being stored for the coming attacks. The primary is Saturday so it should reach DEFCON ONE soon. Maybe that wasn't rain I heard threatening to blast through my window.

Some news organization said "South Carolina's beloved governor". That prompted many to ask what happened to Nikki Haley.

Reporting from the eye of the mudstorm.

Edit to add: I forgot Cruz. How could I forget Cruz? He is just slithering around the state like our usual visitors. He blends in.

WOOOOO!!! Sounds like the rain is gonna blast straight through the window.

The cats ran when it started. A line of thunderstorms is moving over us.
Northeast SC.

The primaries will now get nastier.

Much mud will be flung.
Appointing to SCOTUS has been an abstract. There is no guarantee.
Now it's REAL.

Of all the people I wish were here to watch this election,

Molly Ivins is the one I miss most.
She could write a column every day and not cover everything. It would be hystericl.

Both maybe.

Greetings from South Carolina. It's Primary Time.

The birthplace of dirty politics.
It is a cage match. No holds barred.
Several of the GOPeas were at Bob Jones University for a conference. Those people are batshit crazy. Think of the wildest RW evangelical you know about and multiply it by a million. That's BJU.
The BJUers used to come over to my campus and try to save us. We had BJU alerts.

Things are so 'interesting' here that the Charleston paper printed a form for people to use to report any unusual happenings they were aware of. I thought, "Who has time?'.

W will be here to campaign for Jeb.
Marco broke a tooth on a Twix bar and somehow found it necessary to tell people that. He seems to be using it as a badge of honor.
Carson went to Gaffney which is where 'House of Cards' is set. Gaffney is known for the giant peach water tank. I lived there one summer. What a thrill.
Nikki Haley hasn't endorsed anybody. She trashed Trump a couple of weeks ago. She has to be busy figuring out what to do to enhance her chances for a possible job with some candidate if they are elected.(gawd help us)
Kasich tried to compliment the Clemson football team by saying he got Ohio State to hold back. Thus he implied that OSU quit for him and Clemson could not have beaten them. He pissed off two groups of people.
Trump is in trouble with some voters because of his language. Go figure. I don't know how many but they are offended.

If you hurry, I bet you could raise brazillions of dollars with a gofundme account to build a wall around SC and trap all of them here. We would sacrifice ourselves for the greater good.

Frank Underwood has set up a headquarters here. He might win both primaries with write-in votes.

Reporting from the heart of darkness.

Lawd! Apparently there's a Rubio mailer attacking Barbara Bush.

Somebody gonna get hurt. She don't play.
