How do y’all like the recent header photo that was on my main page (until I replaced it with the Fair one)? I call it “Kathryn and the White Guys.”
The “Kathryn” is our own Kathryn Fenner, and the White Guys are several who were sitting with Vincent Sheheen at Rotary last week, including Crawford Clarkson, John Lumpkin, Jim Smith and Rep. James Smith (the latter two being father and son). They are all listening to Sheheen’s speech last week.
But apparently these are not typical White Guys, although I would have sworn they were.
No, the typical White Guy actually continues to support Nikki Haley, against all reason and evidence that indicates she is not, on any level thus far excavated, what she says she is. According to The State, anyway:
A new poll by Winthrop University shows Haley leading by nine percentage points, 46 percent to 37 percent.
To win, Sheheen will have to make up the ground among white men who, roughly speaking, prefer Haley by a 3-to-1 margin, according to the poll of likely voters.
Sheheen has attempted to close that gap by likening Haley to Gov. Mark Sanford and touting his endorsement from the state Chamber of Commerce.
Is it working?
Not really, say white men interviewed by The State.
What are they thinking? Or are they just not thinking. Discuss.
Meanwhile, I’m on the way to Rotary again, where our speaker will be … Nikki Haley.
