The DNC is in full swing, and you know what that means, right? Stupid comparisons in speeches are in order. Two days ago, DNC executive director Patrick Gaspard likened former Alaska governor Sarah Palin to “Harry Potter” villain Lord Voldemort and S.C.

I wasn’t the only one disgusted and creeped out when news surfaced that South Carolina AFL-CIO president, Donna Dewitt smashed a pinata of S.C. governor Nikki Haley’s face over the weekend. The conservative politician was also troubled by the violent act, which is still painful for her to watch.

South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley’s latest approval rating isn’t all that high, and we’re certain her shoes and eschewing of earrings are to blame.
We kid, of course, and find the appearance nitpicking beyond absurd. That said, a new Winthrop University poll finds that the emerging political figure earned just a 37.3 percent favorable rating among potential voters.

With the buzz around potential VP picks for Romney, it makes sense that some would question whether South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley is going to be considered for the role, but the political figure said in the May issue of Vogue that it’s not in the cards, as she’s not about to abandon those who elected her into office.
