THE “SOUTHERN STRATEGY” WILL RISE AGAIN!

Former U.S. Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich is weighing in on a South Carolina education race – backing the widow of race-baiting GOP strategist Lee Atwater in her bid for S.C. Superintendent of Education.

Gingrich – who won the 2012 South Carolina GOP presidential primary – has endorsed Sally Atwater’s campaign via this web video.

“She has a big heart and a good head,” Gingrich said in the spot, referring to Atwater as a “personal friend.”

“We’ve known each other for a long time,” Gingrich said.

Atwater – a former federal educrat – has extensive GOP establishment connections in Washington, D.C. thanks to her late husband, Lee Atwater.

As such, we suspect this won’t be the first big-name endorsement she rolls out in her campaign … assuming other prominent elected officials like Gingrich are willing to overlook Lee Atwater’s controversial legacy.

“Newt Gingrich is a close friend and his support today means the world to me personally and our grassroots conservative movement here in South Carolina,” Atwater said. “Newt’s strong support will bring more attention to our growing grassroots momentum for the June 10th primary.”

Here’s the clip …

Atwater is running for a largely ceremonial office, as S.C. Superintendents exercise little real control over the Palmetto State’s worst-in-the-nation government-run school system (local school districts and the S.C. General Assembly wield the real influence).

Still, the race has drawn multiple challengers – including deputy superintendent Charmeka Childs, liberal pro-bureaucrat lobbyist Molly Spearman and social conservative activist Sheri Few.

Atwater’s late husband is famous for pioneering the “Southern Strategy,” in which GOP candidates learned to more effectively message their deep-seated racism.

“She has a big heart and a good head,”

While Newt has no heart and a giant head.

Newt was GREAT back in the mid-90s, Contract With America era. You cannot take that from him. He was the de facto president, because he whipped Clinton to pass Conservative policies…

But that was Newt’s Zenith. I thank him for that, because the country was freer and more prosperous because of his work…

But he needs to relax, and teach, because he is a brilliant, brilliant man. I’d love to see him debate Obama, just see him wipe the floor with that Dumb@$$, Obama…

Other than that, his personal political life is likely over…

But I’m guessing you are not even big enough to admit Obama lied (“You can keep your coverage if you like it, and it will cost less”)…will you???

Newt wasn’t feeling well – he didn’t get any sleep at all on the cruise with his wife, and that led to a sour stomach.

Oh hell, Enos!!!! I missed that one. We need to get someone on here who has been and done (from both ends and maybe both nostrils, too). Is the left tighter than the right or vice versa? Do nostril hairs add or detract from the experience?

Enquiring minds want to know!

Also, if she has a bad cold while you are having nasal sex with her, can you be charged with “Buggery”?

The Amazon river dolphin or boto has been reported to form up in bands of 3–5 individuals enjoying group sex. The groups usually comprise young males and sometimes one or two females. Sex is often performed in non-reproductive ways, using snout, flippers and genital rubbing, without regard to gender. In captivity, they have been observed to sometimes perform homosexual and heterosexual penetration of the blowhole, a hole homologous with the nostril of other mammals, making this the only known example of nasal sex in the animal kingdom.

Sally Atwater is the most likely candidate to shake up the agency, get rid of a few dead beats and actually help schools improve. The rest have a social agenda or education consituency/status quo they will try to protect. Now if she can get Sara Palin to endorse her, she’s in. But I expect the price has gone up from the Nikki days. Or if she can sleep with Fits. That seems to confer magic powers…

Who cares about Lee’s position on anything. He’s not running, she is. Have the decency not to judge her by what her deceased husband used to believe. Sheesh.

She was married to it and as GOP women tow the line of their husband’s ideology it has merit. She, however, has none.

You think she would have any of these endorsements without Lee’s last name? No, while she may be a fine person she is not only not qualified for the position but also has NO connections within the state. We need to keep Washington out of South Carolina!
