… but only because word of it got out, and on tape:
VINCENT SHEHEEN CAMP LIVID OVER LEAK
DEMOCRATS LOOK FOR SOMEONE TO BLAME IN WAKE OF GAFFE
Senator Vincent Sheheen‘s 2014 campaign for governor of South Carolina has been one misstep after another … culminating with an ill-conceived (albeit accurate) Freudian slip last week in which he referred to incumbent “Republican” Nikki Haley as a “whore.”
The Sheheen gaffe – which went unreported by the local mainstream media – quickly went viral. Republicans denounced the comment as well as Sheheen’s extended laughter in the wake of the slip, while most Democrats defended it as an honest mistake.
… Frustrated Democrats are pinning the blame for the story on one of their own former operatives – John Osborne.
According to several Democratic operatives, Osborne – now working with “Republican” campaigns – is the operative who sent the clip of Sheheen’s gaffe to several national media outlets.
Wait … hold up …
A candidate for statewide office (inadvertently?) calls his female opponent a whore and then laughs about it … and someone else is to blame for it becoming a “thing?”
Yep. You can’t make this up.
UPDATE: I wasn’t looking for this, but commenter “zf” caught the ridiculous reference to “albeit accurate” above.
So the writer apparently believes Nikki Haley really is a whore, but that Sheheen was just stupid to say it.
Accordingly, I have removed the link to this clown.
