The economy is melting down, the real estate market is tits up, the dollar is sinking, the war drones on, and this is what the Republican candidates are debating in South Carolina:
The Republican presidential candidates on Thursday moved to appeal to different types of conservative voters before the South Carolina primary, with Mike Huckabee using colorful language to declare the Confederate flag a states’ rights issue and Senator John McCain embracing a supply-side tax cut proposal.
“You don’t like people from outside the state coming in and telling you what to do with your flag,” Mr. Huckabee, a former governor of Arkansas, told supporters in Myrtle Beach, according to The Associated Press.
“In fact,” he said, “if somebody came to Arkansas and told us what to do with our flag, we’d tell them what to do with the pole; that’s what we’d do.”
These are not serious people, this is not a serious party, and we are in serious trouble as a country. The entire GOP field is Unfit for Command.
