S.C. Senator Lee Bright appeared on national television/ radio host Glenn Beck’s show this week – the second challenger to U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham to appear on the program in as many weeks.

How did Bright do? We’re still waiting on the video clip to be posted, but the early reviews have been pretty complimentary.

“Bright sounded good,” columnist Mark Vogl noted. “He obviously has access to polls about Carolinians feelings on the issues, because he spoke boldly on a number of issues including ‘Grahamnesty’s’ immigration bill.”

“Bright kicked ass on (Beck’s show),” one national operative told FITS, adding that his impressive performance was “unexpected.”

That’s for sure …

As we’ve noted on numerous prior occasions, Bright’s voting record is unimpeachable. He has been an unswerving advocate for freedom and free markets – one of the few genuinely pro-taxpayer elected officials in the entire state of South Carolina. However Bright is

One of Bright’s 2014 primary opponents – Lowcountry businesswoman Nancy Mace – appeared on Beck’s show last week.

Bright and Mace have been duking it out with another social conservative – Piedmont, S.C. businessman Richard Cash – as they vie to become the “anti-Graham” in the 2014 GOP primary.

I wouldn’t “rally around” that opportunistic jackass if he was running against Anthony Weiner!!!
Especially if he thinks going onto a has-been show like Becks is a way to get the word out
Yeah, he has the pulse of South Carolina fer sure!!!!!
The faint pulse of mouth-breathing tin-foil hat wearing tea-baggers is the only pulse he’s feeling up!!!

Glenn Beck has cooties, uses feminine deodorant and should place his nipples gently onto a helicopter blade. Downvote that.

Who gives a fuck about Beck? If you thought he was remotely sane, wait until you get a load of his batshit-crazy version of Disneyland:

http://www.glennbeck.com/2013/01/10/take-a-tour-of-glenns-visionary-plans-for-independence/

The whole damn “idea” comes across as joining some kind of cult, except with a $2 billion price tag, it rivals that of Scientology. At least L. Ron Hubbard knew that the bullshit he came up with was in fact BS.

Beck is bold and puts his money where his mouth is. He is also self deprecating, fairly transparent, creates jobs and pays taxes. He gives back to society and advances the cause of a number of charities. His Independence, USA will sink or swim on its own merits as it should. Overall, I think his heart is in the right place.

Where do you even find that show, anyway? Is it on the RFD channel like Imus used to be before that Cavuto FOX thing? It’s a gauntlet? Like a reality show gauntlet or something? Are their smack-downs in mud pits, too? And drunken puking and pissing scenes. Does anybody get laid? Did he press Bright about his soul? Ask if he wanted to see his magic draws? So many questions, so little inclination to suffer through a fucking Beck show to get the answers.

Last credible thing I heard was he was/is a “broker’ for some hazardous waste company near Cowpens, SC. Seems like I read something about that in the Spartanburg H/J.
“Brokering” shit is the one thing he’s probably be good at, that’s fer sure………….

That’s Greg Hembree (R, District 28- Horry / Dillon County). Greg is bright (no pun intended), so I am sure they are only talking about Senate stuff, not the big campaign against sugarbritches.

He seemed to be doing well until Glenn asked him if he thought he looked fat in his mommy jeans. Glenn and Pat grilled him on his knowledge on this week’s upcoming financial armageddon just before the collectible gold coin commercial break. Apparently the Hindenburg or a replica of the infamous dirigible is going to crash into the market …. again. Also available to listeners are Glenn Beck’s designer denim pants. On sale this week only $299.

Did he ask Mr. Bright how his “soul” was?

My understanding is that he was licking his fingers next to an emaciated corpse when he asked Mace.
