Eric, I hope you're saying that South Carolina, on the Republican side, is "unrepresentative, yahoo infested, pissant"-- and not that South Carolina Republicans still long for the days of racial segregation or somesuch!  Not that the former is a compliment, but from what I gather from friends who have actually lived in South Carolina (unlike me), the latter would be quite inaccurate as a representation of the majority of SC Republicans these days...
