Mace In Graham’s Face?

So while we were slacking off over the weekend the website Buzzfeed broke a big story about one of this website’s partners, Charleston, S.C. liberty leader Nancy Mace. According to reporter Rosie Grey, Mace – a veteran of the Ron Paul movement – has been approached about challenging fiscally liberal U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham (RINO-SC) in a 2014 GOP primary.

From the story

Mace didn’t rule out a run, though she downplayed its likelihood.

“I would like to see someone credible step up to the plate and challenge Graham,” she said. “I’m a hard working small business owner and a mother who loves her children very much.”

Mace, the first woman ever to graduate from The Citadel, is a South Carolina political consultant and co-owner of FITS.

Rather than reinvent the wheel, here’s what our founding editor had to say about her in the Buzzfeed story … which has since been picked up all over the political internets …

She’s got an inspirational personal narrative, a gorgeous young family, the right ideological mooring and all sorts of political connections. Oh, and her name fits nicely on a 4X8. Obviously I’m a little biased, but there’s a lot to like about her as a potential candidate in the event Tom Davis decides to stay out of it.

So … what will Davis do? Last we heard he was reconsidering his decision not to challenge Graham (or seek any other statewide post) in 2014.

We hope he runs, but clearly the Paul movement is making plans in the event he decides to stay out.

I’m sure Lindsey’s political team is salivating over a Mace run. The GOP base isn’t the type that ever cottoned to women at The Citadel, much less a woman who “owns” a website that hustles smut amidst its thinly-sourced political rumors. Were I LG’s communications person, I’d just slap a pic of Mace next to 3-4 of the Fits nudie pics. BOOM. Game over.

Term limits is the only thing that could slow the corruption down.

There is not much difference, if any between Graham and Mace.
We need a CONSERVATIVE. Let’s recruit Jim DeMint to come back…
Much like Paul, Graham is a Triangulator. Sanford is too. They try to combine the moral-lacking moderates of the GOP (RINOs) with the democrats who are sick of Leftwing Failure…

Her article wasn’t that terrible, her assertions were foolish though. If anyone thinks that the govt. is going to start dropping hellfire missiles on the citizens of this country they’re wacko. JTS (just that simple). It’s just a silly and laughable notion that the govt. would use military tactics to subdue the population. Why do that when you’d be assured of a revolt and civil unrest? Rand Paul doesn’t exactly take the long view and apperently nether does Nancy Mace. Is this what this new breed of conservative is thinking about, dumb shit? I’ll bet my first born son that there won’t be a drone strike on an American target during the Obama administration, or the guy after him or the guy after that. The idea is just… well… stupid. But, if she runs she’ll probably win, cause we can’t seem to get enough stupid here in SC.

Since BigT wants me to contribute something with substance, well, here it is. I’ll share this puzzler with you as it was told to me.

Way back during the Middle Ages, one of BigT’s ancestors was a roaming singer and musician who was known far and wide as BigTroubadour. Arriving at a castle one day he was greeted by the King who welcomed him and offered food and lodging for the night in return for providing his well-known entertainment talents.

After a huge feast, the King brought out his three gorgeous daughters who also provided entertainment, much to the pleasure of BigTroubadour.

—– the first daughter sang the most beautiful songs he had ever heard

—– the second daughter danced the most alluring dances he had ever seen

—– the third daughter played a flute with the most melodious tunes he had ever heard

Afterwards, the King said, “As is my well-known custom for hospitality, my guests are allowed to sleep with his choice of bedmate.”

Question: Whom did BigTroubadour choose to sleep with?
