“Ragheads” In American Government?

Nikki Haley is a Republican candidate for the position of governor in the state of South Carolina, but to some bigoted Republicans, she is and will always be a “Raghead.” Republican State Senator Jake Knotts, much like former President Bush, has no idea who or what is a Muslim and one doubts he could even locate India, the nation in which Ms. Haley was born. But, on an Internet talk show, he wanted the world to understand he is an ignorant idiot. He told the audience, “We already got one raghead in the White House, we don’t need another one in the governor’s mansion.” After his remarks created a torrent of complaints, Jake smiled and said, he insisted he was only jesting, and his real complaint is because, “I believe Ms. Haley is pretending to be someone she is not, much as Obama did.”

Yes, Ms. Haley had the audacity to reveal she is a Methodist, not a Muslim just as Obama produced evidence he was born in Hawaii, a state that, at least at last count, is part of the United States of America. I believe Mr. Knotts wants true blooded Republican governors who can run off to Argentine with their sweethearts and abandon wife and family. That is the type of person we need in the governor’s mansion, not some raghead!
