South Carolina Primary Result Projection

South Carolina Primary Prediction

1. Newt “Dude, Where’s My Next Wife” Gingrich… 40%

2. Mitt “Rombot” Romney … 30%

3. Rick “Santorum” Santorum … 15%

4. Ron “The World Is Ending” Paul… 12%

5. Rick “At This Rate, I’ll Be Governor Forever” Perry… 2%

Whoohooh! More garbage to eat!

This is a demographical map of slave concentration in South Carolina from 1861. It seems to speak volumes about what the state has historically stood for: right-wing racism, incendiary behavior, violence, aristocratic commercial control, and general oppression of the black, and by the white, populace. When deciding what image to upload for this post, I considered John Calhoun’s portrait, a Nullifier Party poster, an image of a lynching in 1932, a Barbadian planter family portrait from the 1740s, an image of Strom Thurmond filibustering the Civil Rights legislation in the late 50s and 60s, or a picture of Fort Sumter being bombarded. How about this quote from Governor Tillman:

“We of the South have never recognized the right of the negro to govern white men, and we never will. We have never believed him to be the equal of the white man, and we will not submit to his gratifying his lust on our wives and daughters without lynching him.”

If you love disgraceful history… then you will love South Carolina
