South Carolina Politics: What's Not to Love?
After all, we ARE the state that kept electing Strom Thurmond, even when he was urinating all over himself in the halls of congress.

This week it's the Lieutenant Governor's race getting interesting. Aaron at The State discovers current Lt. Governor Andre Bauer got pulled over twice for speeding lately, but never got a ticket. (This happened to him a few years ago, too.)

In the feeding frenzy, someone else discovers Andre 5000mph has a MySpace profile (with nearly 200 friends, btw).

Then, a guy named Henry Jordan -- who, for whatever reason, says his last name is pronounced JER-dan -- joins the race.

Jordan will be forever remembered as the-guy-who-said-"screw-the-Buddhists-and-kill-the-Muslims"-that-one-time. Yep.

I think this is the race I get to cover this primary season. Now if only we could get someone from the Taliban to throw his hat in the ring. Then things would really get fun.
