Values, Palmetto-Style

South Carolina values by @DavidOAtkins:


Mark Sanford and those wholesome family values. (via)

Last year, South Carolina was sued for issuing "choose life" vanity plates while refusing the same option to pro-choice citizens, justifying its decision by claiming that the anti-abortion message constitutes protected government speech. Today, more than eight decades after women first won the right to vote, the South Carolina state legislature is the only one in America where women do not hold at least 10 percent of all seats.
We're not saying the conservative voters of the Deep South don't have values. It's just that their values are repugnant.

Apologies to the only the SC-born blogger I know. Clearly not *all* South Carolinians are nutters.
