S.C. Democratic Chairman Dick Harpootlian, never a loss for a quick quip, tossed a few stinging one-liners at the Wednesday delegation breakfast.
On Gov. Nikki Haley participating in daily news briefings in a basement studio at the NASCAR Hall of Fame: “She was down in the bunker a la Eva Braun.”
His opinion on why he thinks Republicans dislike education funding: “An educated population would not elect a Nikki Haley.”
On former Gov. Mark Sanford’s trip on the Appalachian Trail: “Silly me, I thought he was just screwing us.”
At the end of a string of zingers, former Democratic party chairwoman Carol Fowler stepped up to the podium and stood next to Harpootlian.
“They called me up here to save you from yourself,” she said. “Or to save the rest of us.”
