What's Wrong With South Carolina?

South Carolina is another one of those former Confederate States that cannot let go of its past.  Witness a while back a news story about a restaurant that - in 2013 - refused to seat a group of young blacks.

What's new?

A SC politician, Rep. Joe Wilson (R), the nutbag that called Obama a liar during a State of the Union Address, has dubiously distinguished himself again.

He spoke up, reading a written question on Syria in a wooden halting manner, at a  House Foreign Affairs Committee meeting today for Secretary of State John Kerry.
"With the president's red line, why was there no call for military response in April? Was it delayed to divert attention today from the Benghazi, IRS, NSA scandals, the failure of Obamacare enforcement, the tragedy of the White House-drafted sequestration or the upcoming debt limit vote? Again, why was there no call for a military response four months ago when the president's red line was crossed?"
What?  Has the man no sense?  Heck, the UN inspectors haven't even finished their investigation yet, and critics are even saying the President is jumping the gun for speaking up now!  And, more importantly, his supposed method for how Obama is trying to distract from these imagined scandals?

Doing nothing.  That's right, Obama is trying to distract from scandals by doing nothing!  Brilliant!  Why didn't any earlier politician think of this?  Obama must be simply astonishingly brilliant to be able to divert attention like that!

What a moron.  Twelve years in the House, and the only two times he can distinguish himself is by his stupidity.

But, wait!  That's not all!  Another SC politician, Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC), tested the Secretary of State's patience:

Secretary of State John Kerry erupted at Rep. Jeff Duncan (R-SC) after the congressman charged that the Obama administration cannot be trusted to carry out an attack on Syria due to mistakes made in Benghazi and controversies involving the IRS and NSA programs.
"I cannot discuss the possibility of the U.S. involvement in the Syrian civil war without talking about Benghazi," Duncan said, questioning Kerry at a Wednesday hearing.
"The administration has a serious credibility issue with the American people, due to the unanswered questions surrounding the terrorist attack in Benghazi almost a year ago. When you factor in the IRS targeting of conservative groups, the AP and James Rosen issues, Fast and Furious and NSA spying programs, the bottom line is that there is a need for accountability and trust-building from the administration," he said. "The American people deserve answers about Benghazi before we move forward in Syria's civil war."
Kerry dismissed Duncan's garbage rhetoric out of hand.
This is the SC politician who is at once a birther, conspiracy theorist about, of all things, the Census Bureau, and pushed Glenn Beck's conspiracy theories surrounding the Boston Marathon Bombing in April.

Another moron.  What is with you South Carolinians?  There has to be somebody in your state smarter than that...
