    S.C. Gov. Haley appoints Rep. Tim Scott to U.S. Senate

    That whirring sound is Strom Thurmond spinning in his grave.


    S.C. Gov. Haley appoints Rep. Tim Scott to U.S. Senate

    Republican South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley announced Monday her decision to appoint Rep. Tim Scott to succeed Republican Sen. Jim DeMint—a decision she deemed "historic."

    Scott, a tea party star, will become the first black Southern senator since the late 1800s. He first won election to the U.S. House in 2010 by beating out Paul Thurmond, son of former segregationist Sen. Strom Thurmond, in the Republican primary for South Carolina's 1st District. Upon his appointment, Scott will serve in the seat the elder Thurmond once occupied.

    It's good to see Democrats aren't the only ones who play the 'first' game. Remember all the flack Democrats got for Obama being hailed as the first black president?

    This guy intends to stand out. Tea Party darling he is:


    He proposed a bill to kick families off of food stamps if one member went on strike as part of a union — he represents progress. And he called for the impeachment of Obama over the debt ceiling.

    Congratulations to Rep. Tim Scott, this is indeed a historic pick.

    The Collectivist Authoritarians on the Left are already calling him an Uncle Tom and claiming he is "black in skin only"

    The only intolerance and bigotry being shown thus far are from your pals on the Left

    Interestingly Paul Thurmond now has a state senate seat.

    ODS is strong with this one.

    Please, share with us the grounds for impeachment of Obama based on the debt ceiling debate that you have found.
