S.C. Attorney General Henry McMaster’s ongoing campaign to make the Palmetto State look as backward as possible has taken a major step forward this week as a popular technology website openly mocked South Carolina for its ongoing “battle” with Craigslist.

We’ve already addressed how pathetic McMaster’s stance against this company is, particularly considering how Craigslist is among the least offensive of “adult service” websites out there, but the website TechCrunch has taken things to a higher energy level.

The site has launched a poll asking its readers whether or not Craigslist or the State of South Carolina is more important to them … and the results aren’t good for Sandlappers.

As of this writing, Craigslist is thumping South Carolina by a 4 to 1 margin – 2,167 to 540 votes.


In “response,” McMaster’s bought-and-paid-for political mouthpiece has launched a “poll” of its own, asking if “2,500 tech cruch readers” or “enforcing the law” is more important …

As of this writing, that poll has generated an underwhelming 16 responses.

Remember – the firms that read sites like Tech Crunch are precisely the sort of companies we want to come to South Carolina, especially now that House Speaker Bobby Harrell’s whole “hydrogen economy” has come crashing down on top of his head.

Now, thanks to McMaster, they’re all laughing at us.

Awesome. Seriously, we can’t wait to see the rest of “Kneejerk” Henry‘s “economic development” plan …
