This South Carolina Democrat Could Use Direction. Or Directions.


Feel free to take appropriate grains of salt in assessing this report from this South Carolina source, whom I call “Dad”:

On Sunday I went to the Hilton Head Democrats’ picnic to educate myself. Very small turn out. Very HOT day. Maybe 100 people. [Gubernatorial candidate] Vincent Sheheen was the speaker. He got lost on HHI and showed up late. The head of the Democrats for Beaufort County said how proud he was of the whole Democratic ticket, but never made reference to their Senatorial candidate, American Hero Alvin Greene. Sheheen spoke like he was running against Mark Sanford instead of Nikki Haley.

In defense of Sheheen, those traffic circles in Hilton Head can be pretty maddening.
