Tim Scott Appointed Senator

From the Washington Post:

South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley (R) announced Monday that she will appoint Rep. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) to the Senate.

Scott will replace Sen. Jim DeMint (R-S.C.), who is leaving the chamber in January to head up the conservative Heritage Foundation.

“It is with great pleasure that I am announcing our next U.S. senator to be Congressman Tim Scott,” Haley said. “I am strongly convinced that the entire state understands that this is the right U.S. senator for our state and our country.”

Sen.-designate Scott, 47, will become the only African-American currently serving in the Senate and the first black Republican to serve in the upper chamber since the 1970s. He will also be the first black senator from the South since Reconstruction…

Clearly just a clever plot by those wascally, wacist Wepublicans!  Imagine, the nerve of them!  Having a female, racial minority governor appointing a black man to the Senate?  Obviously, its just to throw dust in everyone’s eyes so they won’t see the Klan hood peaking out…I mean, its not like the two Latino governors of American States are Republican…oh, wait…

Tell ya what, Democrats – you can keep all the old, white guys like Charlie Crist…we’ll go Forward! with people who actually want to make America great again.

    The question is: what level of blackness is Tim Scott?

      And we now learn – that was the right question.

      The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People isn’t too excited about the appointment of Rep. Tim Scott to South Carolina’s soon-to-be-vacated U.S. Senate seat……..“Unfortunately, his voting record in the U.S. House of Representatives raises major concerns,” Shelton said.

      So he isn’t black enough. Proving once again that the NAACP is not about the advancement of colored people as it is the advancement of a liberal agenda. Sorry Tim.

      He’s been rated “not black enough” by all the usual suspects. Our first black President – Bill Clinton – understood that to be rated “fully black” all you have to do is follow orders….

      He is as Black as the Ace of Spades. Good for Gov. Haley, soon to be Senator Scott and the people of South Carolina. It has been too long since a black republican has been in the senate.

        It has been too long since a black republican has been in the senate.

        Why is that?
        dose his skin pigmentation give him special powers?
        can a black only “represent” blacks?
        was it racist for a black governor ignore the 88 % majority to only find a man from the 12% to represent the citizens?
