Sen. Kevin Bryant gets the Wonkette treatment

Sen. Kevin Bryant, Republican from Anderson, may have made a mistake when he posted the picture of a rather crass anti-Obama T-shirt on his Web site:

First, Not Very Bright got a little upset. That led Snead to post his opinion on the matter and, bla-dow! Wonkette latched onto the story this morning.

When Brad Warthen compared Howard Rich to Osama bin Laden, Rich’s pal Will Folks got his panties in a wad about it. Won’t hold my breath on this one, though.

The whole point is that it’s a really bad joke and unbecoming of a state senator. It also, thanks to the national recognition, once again thrusts our state into the spotlight as an intolerant, insensitive place (especially on the heels of the Quinns’ and Adam Fogle’s homophobic holy war). Wonkette’s commenters, never ones to pull punches, began thusly:

I suspect the “Backbench” is some kind of insider slang for the Power-bottom Caucus…

btw, that campaign photo of Bryant sends my gaydar into the red zone, bottom region. Is there a pool on how long until he’s caught soliciting schoolboys at the county fair?

Looking at the guy’s photo makes me think that someone’s mom didn’t stop drinking when she was knocked up.

Never to break with tradition, Southern Repubs will invariably elect the closet cockaholic that looks like a game show host.

So, yeah. You get picked up on the Internet tubes’ top political snark blog, and it’s all booze and ass-fucking. But, it hasn’t been limited there – the craziness moved over to Bryant’s own site, which got a lot of non-sequitur usage of “BIG SALE ON TRUCK NUTZ!!!” And, fortunately (for entertainment reasons), there’s a better mix.

Bush was governor for 1 full term and one half term. Name one thing Barak Hussein Obama has done. What has he accomplished (besides getting elected)?

Well, I’m gonna take South Carolina off places I want to go. You people are sick. I can’t believe anyone would elect a biggot like Kevin Bryant. Probably, the same moron responsible for this president. Obviously, you hillbillies get all your news from FOX. You will burn eternally for your actions. Poor souls.

An elected official forwarding an agenda of ignorance and hate. And you wonder why South Carolina ranks among the lowest of the low as far as education, child health rates and high on the list of fetal death. Take care of the people you are supposed to represent before you spew your font of elistist ignorance to the rest of the world.

Well, I may have my voting problems down here but at least I try to do things the right way. One thing I certainly don’t do is elect people like this douchebag Bryant. What hay wagon did he fall off of? I’m feeling so much better about myself…

This isn’t good. Even Florida is calling us out. Mark Foley‘s Florida. That’s pretty bad.
