Why Rand Paul Got Dissed By The SCGOP

There’s a “big story” in The Politico this week exploring how U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) got dissed by the S.C. Republican Party at its annual fundraising event in favor of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas). Wait … that’s a story? Apparently. In fact here’s its lede … Sen. Rand Paul’s chief…

There’s a “big story” in The Politico this week exploring how U.S. Sen. Rand Paul (R-Kentucky) got dissed by the S.C. Republican Party at its annual fundraising event in favor of U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas).

Wait … that’s a story?

Apparently.

In fact here’s its lede …

Sen. Rand Paul’s chief of staff called South Carolina’s Republican chairman earlier this month to express disappointment that the state party invited freshman sensation Sen. Ted Cruz to speak at its marquee fundraising dinner rather than the Kentuckian.

Doug Stafford, Paul’s top aide, told Chad Connelly, the South Carolina GOP chief, that Paul’s team had hoped to attend high-profile state party dinners in each of the traditional early states this spring, three sources familiar with the call told POLITICO.

Really? Again … that’s a story?

Anyway, here’s our takeaway from The Politico‘s article: SCGOP chairman Chad Connelly is a little bitch who will rat out private conversations to national reporters in a heartbeat to embarrass certain politicians. Oh … and then hide behind his spokesman like an even littler bitch when it’s time to actually be a man and answer for his penny ante political attacks.

Lindsey Graham and Chad Connelly
Lindsey Graham and Chad Connelly

Of course that figures coming from a former Amway salesman, doesn’t it?

So … why would Connelly want to embarrass Rand Paul? Two words: Lindsey Graham.

For those of you unfamiliar with the political loyalties of this two-bit fast talking hack, Connelly is a big-time Graham supporter – one of many disappointing sellouts he’s made since taking over the reins of the SCGOP in 2011 (and one of many reasons we no longer support him).

Anyway, Graham remains livid at Paul over his filibuster of U.S. President Barack Obama’s CIA nominee last month – not to mention the contempt with which Paul views Graham’s incessant war-mongering, fiscal liberalism and the campaign cover he routinely provides for Democrats.

And so the light in the loafers liberal has dispatched Connelly to do his dirty work for him …

Expect to see more of this crap from Connelly and other Graham supporters in the months to come. And not just against Paul, either … expect similar intrigues to be launched against any Republican who dares to challenge Graham in the Palmetto State.

Why? Because “Miss Lindsey’ has to face South Carolina Republican primary voters in 2014 – and God forbid anyone come to his home state and call him out for being the worthless P.O.S. he is.

Oh, and in the meantime … no matter what your ideological persuasion, it’s probably a good idea to consider any “private” conversation with Chad Connelly as a potential weapon for him to use against you at a later date.

Funny how the money stops flowing from Uncle Howard Rich and all of a sudden Will Folks has nothing nice to say about Chad Connelly. You’re a whore, Will Folks- you just need to come out and admit it. Instead of “Unfair, Imbalanced” it should be “(Sic) Will work for cash.”

FITS: You open yourself up to being seen as a HACK Whore. The Sanford endorsement makes you look like a cheap Shill for a Career, Disgraced, lying politician…

You have an audience, because you’ve proven to be good a drawing a crowd, but very poor w/ credibility…If Google will pay you for hits, w/o respect to honor or credibility…accept that…

You may be looked at as a joke, and a dirtbag…but it’s better than working…especially for a dude who has no experience, intellect or talent…

Not to mention: you are the STRAW MAN for the Conservative Movement. No one would believe us if we did not have hacks like you to support what we say about pop culture.

Reality: Right now, the goal of Obama, FITS and media is to DESTROY the GOP…

FITS, like all democrat-lovers and media, wants to split the GOP to fight within itself……

Truth: Still the Republicans are bickering over solutions to disasters (like immigration and extra Gay rights) that the democrats are ALL Wrong on…and they CAUSED to terrible problems…

FITS is now in concert w/ The Politico as a “like” media persona…that should tell you ALL you need to know. How often does FITS use CNS or Drudge as a news article source? He overlooks some HIGH-PROFILE embarrassments to the left (Obama Vaca-spending, Murderous Abortion Doctor)…..

He either has Sanford write some PAINFULLY byzantine-wonk speak to bash Haley or it’s gossip.

If FITS reports news service comment, it’s from The State or some other leftwing @$$-kissing rag…

It’s really nice of Fits to let you rant endlessly off topic for your agenda. If a doctor performs late terms abortions like this, It’s criminal and they should be jailed. If you’re thinking of banning all abortions will stop abortion, then, banning all guns will stop crime…you can’t fool yourself…or maybe you can.

FITS: When you claimed to be Conservative, it made you interesting, because you would be different. Now people are reading, and figured out you are a lair…hence, the lack of traffic..except for me dancing on your grave and saying “I told you so”….
