Charlestonians Open Fire On Fort Sumter
Oops, I mean go RINO hunting

Charlestonians are a proud bunch. But can you blame them? After all... Charleston IS the place where the Ashley and the Cooper rivers come together to form the Atlantic Ocean.
They also aren't exactly thrilled when someone from the Federal government (South Carolinian or not) double crosses them.

Anyhow, here's some of the article by The News & Courier (Charleston, SC);

County Republican Party leaders censure Sen. Graham

The Charleston County Republican Party's executive committee took the unusual step Monday night of censuring U.S. Sen. Lindsey Graham for stepping across the GOP party line.

County Chairwoman Lin Bennett said the unanimous vote "is an effort to get his attention. They (party leaders) are just fed up, and they want him to know they're fed up."

The resolution mentions Graham's cooperation with U.S. Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass., on a bipartisan energy bill, and his support for the $700 billion Troubled Asset Relief Program and the time he called some opponents of immigration reform "bigots."

"U.S. Senator Lindsey Graham -- in the name of bipartisanship -- continues to weaken the Republican brand and tarnish the ideals of freedom, rule of law, and fiscal conservatism," the resolution reads.

She said party faithful have talked about the resolution for a while. "The feeling is if you're not going to uphold the platform, then why bother to run as a Republican?" she said.
Yep, Lindsey Graham best not be pissin' off 'em Charleston folks. As we all know, it's allllll fun and games until some pissed-off Cajun orders the artillery batteries to open fire. Then someone's bound to lose an eye... or secede.

Slightly off-topic but as a Civil War buff have to thank you for the photo of Pierre T. Beauregard

My late grandmother always told us we were related to this dude, Gen Beauregard ... What the heck was he thinking when he had the Yankees on the run and just stood there watching?
