After the Lexington County Republican Party voted to condemn and ask for the resignation of State Senator Jake Knotts for calling Indian-American Senate candidate Nikki Haley a "raghead," Knotts responded that he "could care less" (which reminds us of this video we saw yesterday on Andrew Sullivan's blog). Then, after claiming that the press had given Haley a free ride, Knotts asked a reporter, "Have you ever asked her if she believes in Jesus Christ as her lord and savior and that he died on the cross for her sins? Have you ever asked her that?” Oh, South Carolina, you are too much sometimes!
