I don’t recall the exact date. But I remember the moment approximately six years ago that I was standing around at a Tea Party rally on the Statehouse grounds to see whom I could see, when I noticed something.
A candidate for public office in South Carolina had said it again. “Republicans aren’t much better,” or some similar expressed affectation.
Right there, in that second, it struck me. I was hearing that expression a lot in those post-Obama victory days.
