re: #1 Charles Johnson

Thank you. I’ve been posting bits and pieces in comments for days and decided it was time to put it all in one place. (and with your help, was able to actually get it all to post!)

Spot on point. If hypocrisy had an odor, this pile would knock a buzzard off a shit wagon.

It’s great to have this all in one place. Bookmarked—thanks!

I’d also add the bit about how Democrat-turned-Republican Gov. David Beasley lost his 1998 re-election bid to Democrat Jim Hodges, mainly over the issues of video-poker machines and the confederate flag. Beasley supported the flag in his first election, and then proposed in his second campaign to move the flag to the state house grounds where it currently flies.

Basically, conservative Republicans stayed home in that election because Beasley had “flip-flopped” on the keeping the flag flying atop the statehouse.

(Edit: and oh, Beasley did lose a lot of trust also by greatly exaggerating his past athletic accomplishments during public a 1995 appearance at an elementary school — later featured in attack ads paid for by the video poker people)

Here’s a 1997 NYT bit about how the flag issue split SC Republicans

Thanks for adding the detail. That is Beasley in the photo with Mayor Riley during the march.

Love the Haley quote about CEOs. Besides money, what do CEOs care about. Oh yeah, money, and more money. And money.
