The last time we heard from South Carolina Democratic chairman Dick Harpootlian, he was drawing comparisons between Republican Gov. Nikki Haley and Adolf Hitler’s mistress, Eva Braun. That was last September, and something tells us Harpootlian hasn’t spent the past several months in charm school. At a Democrat party dinner tonight attended by Vice President Joe Biden, Harpootlian rallied his troops to send Haley “back to wherever the hell she came from.” That wouldn’t be far, for the record.
Paging Chris Matthews on the courtesy dog whistle…
Calm down, everyone, it wasn’t a racist statement — at least according to Politico. Harpootlian was just “pushing the envelope.”
