SC-1: Sanford, Kuhn Spar

This is one of those totally pointless stories in which “candidate A says ‘X’ about candidate B who says ‘Y’ in response.” It’s not news … it’s friggin’ algebra. And yet here we are plugging names and allegations into the same old formula. Weak … we admit. Anyway, in the increasingly…

This is one of those totally pointless stories in which “candidate A says ‘X’ about candidate B who says ‘Y’ in response.”

It’s not news … it’s friggin’ algebra. And yet here we are plugging names and allegations into the same old formula.

Weak … we admit.

Anyway, in the increasingly mind-numbing race for South Carolina’s first congressional district, former S.C. State Sen. John Kuhn is running a television ad attacking former Gov. Mark Sanford (and two other candidates – State Senator Larry Grooms and S.C. Rep. Chip Limehouse) for their support of a “massive earmark spending bill that cost taxpayers $250 million.”

Here’s the spot …

(Click to play)

Sanford’s campaign blasted the ad as “false on virtually every claim” as well as “desperate and intentionally misleading.”

They also touted a FactCheck.org review of the ad which concluded that it was inaccurate.

Kuhn’s campaign stood by the spot.

“Governor Sanford’s accusations of deception are highly ironic, considering his history of lying to the people of the State of South Carolina,” Kuhn said in a statement. “Mark Sanford’s response to our campaign’s television ad only addresses his actions in 2004. Our ad is about my successful filibuster in 2003 and subsequent opposition to the bill when it was re- introduced in 2004.”

Kuhn added that Sanford was “simply attempting to revise history yet again.”

Sanford and Kuhn are among the sixteen candidates seeking the GOP nomination for the first district seat – which was vacated earlier this year by newly appointed U.S. Sen. Tim Scott. Assuming no candidate receives more than fifty percent of the vote in March 19’s special primary election (a virtual certainty at this point), the top two vote getters will square off two weeks later in a runoff.

The winner of that battle will face Democrat Elizabeth Colbert-Busch in May.

Guided by Christian Values so says John Kuhn

It is true I slept a lot during Sunday School and the Preacher’s Sermon. However I do recall one of the Christian Values was Thou shalt not bear false witness against thy neighbour.

What the hell, maybe Mr. Kuhn’s religion has only 9 or maybe just 6 Christian Values.

That’s it,. Mr. Kuhn’s church is Motel 6

The funniest part of this ad is that when I saw him shoulder hug a pudgy blonde that looked like she was uncomfortable with his weird stage touch, it later turned out to be his wife.

That is funny. The black guy in the ad must have come from an advertising agency since Kuhn doesn’t know or work with or socialize with any blacks, except the guys at the car wash and the checkers and bag boys at Publix on East Bay Street. What a fake.

St. Philips Episcopal Church — in in the background in Kuhn’s TV ad — is leading the lawsuit / schism to leave “The Episcopal Church of USA.”

Its main complaint: “We must realize that . . . homosexuals are ill, and need our care and prayer.”

http://www.stphilipschurchsc.org/#/welcome and http://your-cathedral.org/

I was baptized and confirmed in St. Philips — and left it years ago for such intolerance and small-mindedness.

Not surprisingly, when Kuhn moved to Charleston from California, he became a member.

I approve of the chick on the left with the huge jugs. Sanford just runs better photos.

My wife is complaining about about “all that crap from fat-so Chip Limehouse in the mail box.”

She said, “Lord save us from Limehouse and that other hypocrite, Koon.”

Amen.

Comments to P&C article below.

Kuhn is blinded by his envy of Sanford.

Stew Williams
Mark Sanford’s escapade is legitimate political fodder. I am surprised it hasn’t been brought up earlier. Despite that, I am voting for him in the Primary for the sole fact he is the most experienced candidate and his position on balanced budgets and spending
are well known and well acted upon.

Glenda Miller
I’m disappointed that Mr. Kuhn initiated a negative campaign.

Thomas Parsons
I suspect Mr. Kuhn has no real record to run on so he must attack. I remember Mr. Sanford sleeping on a cot in his DC office trying to save money the last time he was up in there trying to save us money. Mr. Sanford made a moral mistake but his political record is one that everyone in Washington should strive to attain.

Kuhn’s wife’s girl friends, er, former girl friends, say she likes oral sex instead of regular sex. She says it’s the only way she can come. Suppose that keeps John’s mouth working, in good condition.

Kuhn’s wife’s FORMER girlfriends tattle — she can only come with oral sex. So that’s how Kuhn keeps his mouth in such good biting condition.
