Remember Joe Wilson, the South Carolina Republican Congressman who shouted "you lie" during President Barack Obama's State of the Union address?
48 hours ago, nobody knew who Jake Knotts is. Now, he's joining his political patron Knotts just settled for calling our President and a state representative "ragheads". in South Carolina's Hall of Shame. Wilson shouted down our President;
"We got a raghead in Washington; we don't need one in South Carolina," Knotts said more than once. "She's a raghead that's ashamed of her religion trying to hide it behind being Methodist for political reasons."
-- South Carolina State Senator Jake Knotts, as reported by the Columbia Free Times
This type of dirty politics is exactly what is wrong in Washington and South Carolina today. We can't change politics, until we start changing the politicians. It's time for fresh leadership that will act with the independence and accountability we deserve.
