As of Tuesday morning, a total of 306 South Carolina roads (and 163 bridges) remained closed due to the waters of “Floodmaggedon.”  That’s compared to a total of 368 roads and 159 bridges late Monday.

The vast majority of impassable roads and bridges can be found in the Midlands region of the state – in and around the capital of Columbia, S.C.

You can view the latest data from the S.C. Department of Transportation (SCDOT) – although as one of our readers recently pointed out this agency hasn’t exactly been on the leading edge during this historic storm.

Has anybody else noticed what a Rank Amateur Haley is?!? She is Chronically late for her called press announcements. What does she do, call a press conference then go fix her hair!?! How about just call them for an hour later than you expect. Shit, woman, goback to selling bad whore clothes. Public Service is just not something you can do.

Note stupid Haley offering “statistics” as in, how to lie with. We answered 174 calls for assistance. What the Lying Bitch fails to say is that didn’t have the capacity to answer the 2500 calls we actually received. She says she’s in “prayer mode” that’s it. That’s the fucking best she can do.

You can’t make this up.

Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) “is asking for federal aid for his home state of South Carolina as it battles raging floods, but he voted to oppose similar help for New Jersey in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy in 2013,” CNNreports.

Said Graham: “Let’s just get through this thing, and whatever it costs, it costs.”

Graham was among the GOP senators who opposed federal aid to assist states hit by Hurricane Sandy, but now he doesn’t remember why: “I’m all for helping the people in New Jersey. I don’t really remember me voting that way.”

#Republicans are dumb as crap.

Nikki is “so far ahead” “so in front of it…” that she’s already re-elected again. Sounds like jibberish to me… Just imagine if this was Statewide. Just a few Counties. Thank God we had Carroll Campbell for Hugo.
