GOVERNOR: DEMOCRATIC NOMINEE’S LAUGHTER AFTER GAFFE WAS “KICK IN THE GUT”

By FITSNEWS || S.C. Gov. Nikki Haley issued her first public statements this week in response to her Democratic opponent (inadvertently?) calling her a “whore.”

Missed that?  FITS was the first South Carolina media outlet to report on the gaffe by S.C. Sen. Vincent Sheheen – which has since erupted into a major story (and a major problem for Sheheen’s already flagging candidacy).

“I haven’t spent a lot of time on this and you have not heard me talk about it and it’s because whether it was a gaffe or not, I really don’t care,” Haley said during a news conference this week. “I’m a tough girl, I can handle that. The laughing afterwards (though), was a kick in the gut. The comment that sometimes you’ve gotta tell the truth, that was tough. But, having said that, I’m not going to waste my time on that.”

Interesting … Haley focused on precisely the same two things we did related to this gaffe, which Sheheen has tried (unsuccessfully, we might add) to address.

“I thought that Ann Romney’s comments were appropriate,” Haley added, referring to statements made earlier this week by the wife of former GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney.

“We’re going to win this race because we want it more,” Sheheen said at a Democratic rally last week. “We want it more and all we have to do is remind the people of South Carolina about the junk that has gone on the last four years. Remind them that we have a governor who has vetoed over $100 million in public education funding.  She vetoed our public school teacher’s pay raises the same year she gave her own staff 25 percent pay increases.”

Really?  Last time we checked Haley was every bit as enslaved to South Carolina’s failed government run education system as Sheheen.  Also, last year she vetoed less than one-tenth of one percent of the state budget.

Anyway …

“That is the worst kind of politics,” Sheheen continued. “And we are gonna escort whore out the door.”

Sheheen quickly caught his slip, and restated “escort her out the door.”

Of course both the candidate and his audience proceeded to laugh heartily over the comment for several moments after the fact … with one member of the crowd thanking Sheheen for telling the truth about Haley, who has been accused of having multiple affairs.

“You gotta tell the truth!” he responded.

“Sometimes when you’re speaking five to ten times a day, your words get a little bit garbled,” Sheheen told Charleston, S.C. radio host Bryan Crabtree earlier this week. “Uh. When they get garbled, and it does happen to me – I go back and say exactly what I meant, and you heard in that clip that I meant ‘her’ – h.e.r.”

“I can promise you I don’t use that word, the word that you people are claiming that I used,” Sheheen continued. “I don’t use it in private, I don’t use it in public — but if anybody heard wrong, and certainly my words were garbled, then you know I apologize. Because I don’t want to send that message to anybody.”

Too late …

There were two bulls in a pasture on a hill overlooking a herd of fine cows. The young bull was prancing and kicking up dust. The old bull stood quietly as the young bull acted stupidly. The young bull said to the old bull “let’s run down the hill and screw a cow”. The old bull quietly answered: “let’s walk slowly down the hill and screw then all.” Priorities stupid.

Sandi Morals took that name as a reference to the Sandy Monkey, an alky bar in Garden City. The one with the big fibreglass ape on top of it, wearing (no shit) a pair of Speedos. He used to obsess over that place in his posts as “pogo” to The SNOB (Sun News Opinion Blog). pogo destroyed that blog, then tried to blame it on me. Dude is nurtz. Claims that he and his family constantly travel between Ohio, Murrells Inlet, Florida and Las Vegas, in a travel trailer. He travels with his supposedly disabled near-deaths-door wife and multi-racial grandchildren.

pogo keeps trying to set up meetings with his adversaries on the fourms and blogs where he posts and comments. You may have seen his attempt at that on a FITS thread recently, with me. When someone takes him up on the offer to get together for lunch or coffee, he always finds some excuse not to close the deal.

This Sheheen campaign will no kidding go down in SC political history as the one of the worst ever (not as bad as TR’s, but pretty bad). This stupid slip of he tongue would have cost him the race if hadn’t already screwed the pooch on that for 6 months.

So easy to handle on the stump- he slips up and utters the Freudian “whore,” but fixes it immediately. People in the crowd laugh and start yelling nonsense about “Tell the trufus, Rufus!” Now is when the story goes South. Sheheen laugh it off, chuckles it up with the crowd, and even jokes about telling the truth. Dumbass behavior, that.

A smart candidate (whether he thought the governor should be called a “whore” or not) catches the slip, fixes it, and when the yuk-yuk starts says, “Whoa whoa whoa everybody- I am sorry about that horrible slip of the tongue! I think you all know me well enough to know that I would never call a woman that, and we certainly won’t be joking around about it here, right?! Despite our political differences, we would never have to sink to that kind of terrible name-calling, right?”

It may still have caught some attention, but would have likely died in one news cycle. Instead, Vinnie swings for the fence and basically says we’re all stupid and that’s not what he said. Result? National coverage in less than 48 hours and some real hurt feelings among female voters. Maybe even worth a point or two among women and folks who simply think, “Damn, he’s stupid.”

This’ll be used as a case study in some poli/sci course next semester, to be sure. It’ll be titled “How to Turn an Honest Mistake into a Major Fuckup in two Easy Steps.”

Sheheen had an opportunity to correct what he had stated, but instead played to the audience. No apology will change how he pandered to the crowd.

Regarding Tom Ervin; he did not have the courage to face Haley in the primary, and he
does not have the courage to face her in the general election.

Ervin’s candidacy did not siphon off the votes from Haley as their strategy had hoped, instead Sheheen was losing votes.

After Sheheen shot himself in the foot, then the strategy of Ervin dropping out and endorsing Sheheen was implemented.

Ervin is now showing his “true colors,” and demonstrating his Democratic Party allegiance.
