It’s Official: Will Folks Endorses Nikki Haley in the South Carolina Governor’s Race

June 18, 2010

Just as Red Dog predicted two weeks ago, Will Folks has found it impossible to keep his hands off of Nikki Haley.

So today, Will Folks and has endorsed Nikki Haley in the South Carolina Governor’s race.

“And the bottom line for S.C. taxpayers is that Haley would vote the right way on the S.C. Budget and Control Board, use her veto pen to reduce the size and scope of government and sign a universal parental choice bill which would (at long last) provide parents with real options and our flawed system with real, market-based accountability.  Also, all signs are that Haley would aggressively pursue government restructuring”

“Given all of this … we are endorsing Nikki Haley in next Tuesday’s Republican gubernatorial primary against Barrett.”

Controversial enough to direct traffic to his website, but predictable enough that we told you so weeks ago.

UPDATE: 6/18 10:05 pm – Seems that Will Folks is not the only one heavily invested in the Haley campaign.  From Politico;

Former Massachusetts GOP Gov. Mitt Romney has contributed $42,000 to Nikki Haley’s campaign for governor in South Carolina.

UPDATE II: 6/18 10:12 pm – It may not be breaking news, but Stacy McCain has some thoughts on the Folks endorsement;

“Will Folks is not scum. He’s the virus that infects the slime that covers the parasites that inhabit the entrails of scavengers that feed on scum.”

Just thought you should know.

UPDATE III: 6/19 12:20 – Moe Lane over at Red State is also under the impression that Sic Willie is only looking to boost his hitcount.

Somebody’s hitcount must be down again…

…because FITS News is trying to inject himself back into the narrative again by endorsing Nikki Haley.

    Homeboy, if you don’t hear the drumbeat by now, you never will. Folks clearly has his own timetable. If you choose to interpret the endorsement that he gave to Nimrata (”Nikki”) Randhawa Haley [tip of the hat, a tongue-in-cheek “shout out”, if you will, to everyone out there suffering from Obama Derangement Syndrome and the pathological, compulsive need to refer to the President as Barack HUSSEIN Obama, clownishly EMPHASIZING his middle name], while calling her a liar in the strongest terms, to date, in a self-serving, Haley-partisan/apologist way, do so at your own peril. The steady drumbeat of inevitability has grown stronger still with this latest pronouncement. As Folks is wont to say, “Stay tuned.” It truly is JUST a matter of time. As frustrating as having to wait for it might be to the impatient or, more importantly, as frightening as the possibility that Folks has the goods on Haley might be to the Haley-partisan/apologists among us, like you, the fact of the matter is that the proof of Haley’s deception is coming. Haley apologists/partisans like you can whistle/scream/stamp their feet in the dark all they want, irrationally trying to tamp down their anxiety/fears about what Folks may have in the way of proof. It may make you feel better temporarily, but it won’t change the inevitable outcome. If Folks has the proof he says he does, and he does, it doesn’t matter when he releases it. If it occurs before the election, she won’t be elected. If it occurs after the election, she’ll be forced to resign, if by nothing other than her pre-election promise to resign if proven to be a liar. What will be truly interesting is if the requisite proof comes out before the election, and Haley wins anyway. Having already committed herself to resigning IF she is proven to be a liar, either by Folks or Marchant or both, will she honor her committment to resign? I have this nagging suspicion that, rather than do the honorable thing and resign, she’ll claim that a doppleganger made that committment while the real Haley was climbing the Appalachian Trail.

    But, that said, you and all the other Haley-apologists out there, can hysterically yell and scream all you want at Folks, sarcastically call him a self-serving liar to your heart’s content, it won’t change a thing, other than to increase the amount of egg you will have to eventually wipe off of your face.

    For the record, I agree that Haley doing whatever she wants to with her body doesn’t have anything to do with her ability to perform the duties she would have if elected Governor. but I certainly do believe that a willingness to lie about it to the electorate has a A LOT to do with it.

    Parenthetically, I wish people would stop tripping on Haley’s looks/sex appeal. In the first place, it simply is. . .not. . .a. . .relevant. . .factor. This isn’t a beauty contest, it’s an election for an important government position. In the second place, guys, please get a grip. Women like Nikki Haley and Sarah Palin are okay-looking, the kind of women that old, over-the-hill, white guys who long ago lost the ability to get truly “fine” women, if they EVER had it, lose their minds over. I’ll concede that Nikki Haley is more attractive than a Madeleine Albright or an Elena Kagan, but THAT is about as far as I am willing to go.

    By the way, irrelevant as it might be to her ability to govern, I will say that Haley’s posterior does look good in a skirt, but her face has only a marginally exotic appeal, and her inability to fill out a sweater properly drags her body/looks/sex appeal down to the level of average, to the level of the schoolmarmish and borderline librarian.

    All right, anyway, everybody just needs to chill for a minute, you, in particular. Folks has the goods, AND we’ll have them soon enough. It is just going to happen as he sees “fit[s]“, on HIS timetable, not ours.

    Take the Haley partisan blinders off, Red Dog. If only Haley’s handlers had done that and advised her to be honest and forthright from the outset, rather than to dissemble, this might be over with by now. Instead, it hangs over her like a Sword of Damocles, and over Haley apologists like you like a basket of eggs. Don’t waste any of your metrosexual money at the day spa, Red Dog, you’ll be getting a “facial” in the very near future. Get ready to wipe the “egg” off of your face, huh? (*laughing*)

    Spoken like a true, mindless and childish partisan. I guess by “interesting” you mean something that you agree with.

    Like it or not, what I wrote was “interesting” and probably more than a little entertaining. I’m sorry that you didn’t like it.

    If what you meant by your comment was that you’re just not much of a reader of anything that doesn’t dovetail nicely with your talking points and/or particular partisan outlook, no problem, but don’t hold your breath. If it meant that you just don’t have the requisite attention span to read anything longer or more detailed than a one-liner, I guess that I’ll just have to look elsewhere for an intelligent ” conversation.

    I will, however, remember this particular exchange when Nikki Haley’s lies come back to haunt her, and I will have a good laugh at your expense for the kind of mindless partisanship you display here day in and day out about her as I imagine you wiping an extraordinary amount of egg off of your face, while desperately struggling to find a way to maintain your reactionary partisan machismo.

    Stuart Rothenberg called South Carolina “the stinkhole of Republican politics” for a reason. I should remember that, along with the regrettable sophomoric tenor of your responsive comment above, the next time I consider adding something to the “discussion” here, much less find myself expending too much energy on what happens in a backwater state like South Carolina.

    It’s been real, homeboy. Anyway, I’m off to find an adult to talk to.

      Actually, what I meant was, wake me when you have something interesting to say troll.

    “Troll”?. . .(*laughing*). . .Sorry, I didn’t realize you were one of the “mouthbreathers” that don’t welcome, or lack the intellect and/or maturity to handle, a contrary point of view. Why not try addressing the substance of my original post above, instead of getting your panties in a bunch over my goring one of your sacred cows and lapsing into the typically perjorative and reactionary tactics of an intellectually challenged partisan.

    That said, given that you asked me to, all I can say is that I could try to “wake” you, but I think that you’re way too deep in that partisan stupor of yours for me to ever be successful in the effort.

    In any event, thanks for taking a minute, well, more like all of fifteen seconds, to s9 clearly demonstrate with your latest post what I meant abour you’re being a truly mindless, childish partisan.

    Good luck with everything. I’m pretty sure that you, and Nikki Haley, for that matter, are going to need it.

      Anyway, I’m off to find an adult to talk to.

      And yet you are back. Troll.

    Anyway, as I was saying, I’m off to look for an adult to converse with. It doesn’t look like I’m going to find one in this little rightwing, Haley-apologist/partisan echo chamber of yours. ” Troll?”. . .(*still laughing*). . .Pathetic. . .

    • June 20, 2010 10:06 pm

      Anyway, I’m off to find an adult to talk to.

      And yet you are back again. TROLL

    Red Dog barked, “And yet you are back again. TROLL [sic]”

    Hey, Bri Bri, I’m human. AND an eternal optimist. I figured, “He’s got his own website/blog. He must have SOMETHING going on upstairs, enough to be able to objectively and civilly deal with a contrary point of view, and to be able to do so without lapsing into the “cut low” tactics of a fifth grade schoolboy mindlessly and immaturely trying to insult a classmate on the schoolyard.

    So much for optimism. (*laughing [at you, Bri Bri]*). Well, anyway, it would have been “interesting” to have heard a substantive response to my original post. Hmmm, maybe you don’t have the chops, and don’t want to admit it, so you hide behind the juvenile one-liners and insults of a schoolboy.

    ” Troll”?. . .I guess it was just the best that you could do, huh, big guy?

    • June 20, 2010 11:05 pm

      Nah, you figured that you were bored trolling over at FITSnews, so you would come over and troll here for a little troll while. Its ok, I allow trolls as long as their trolling does not get out of controll (get it?).

      Do not be afraid to use the Vent/Rant/Rage Page if you want to go completely troll crazy, or if you just want to troll on about other inane troll irrelevancies.

      Troll hug,

      Red Dog 😀

    Wow, good one, Bri Bri. (*laughing*) You’re quite the intellectual, aren’t ya, big guy or should I just come right out and say it. . .moron? You must have all the fifth grade girls giggling with your elementary schoolyard machismo.

    It’s a pity that you never progressed emotionally or intellectually beyond the point to which you apparently and regrettably have. Jeez, haven’t you ever heard how dangerous the combination of arrogance and stupidity can be? Factor in the maturity of a fifth grade boy that you have so clearly demonstrated with your nonresponsive, responsive juvenile posts here, and you’ve really hit the trifecta, screwed the pooch, pick your metaphor.

    “Troll hug”? What a tool. [Get it, Bri Bri, you just take out the “r” ].

    Tool hug,
