Piñata Politics Just Tempest in a Tea Party Pot

Sorry if this flap has embarrassed any of our members. Please know that Donna and Network Director Brett Bursey have made the best of the rare media attention. (Watch Brett on Fox and Donna on CNN, for starters.)

It may not be pretty, but at least people are talking about organized labor in South Carolina. It’s a conversation that’s long overdue, and it’s up to us to keep it honest.

    I agree 100% with your remarks. I think Haley and her cronies lie in wait to find something, no matter how insignificant, to twist to blow all out of proportion to fill her coffers. She does what she please and gets away with a lot. When is she going to be called out for being in contempt of the SC Supreme Court and what is ever worse, encouraging others to do so?

    I know there was never a thought in your mind of what ultimately happened when you made the pinata. I would have done the same thing…it was all in fun. Please don’t beat yourself up over this. I am certainly not embarrassed. I stand with you 100% and I so admire you for all you do for the under served in SC. I know a lot of people who feel the same way I do. And I think that Brett and Donna did themselves proud in their interviews!

    I just wrote you a long letter of support saying that I agree with you 100% but I can never get through the hurdle of trying to retype the codes below and somehow lost my comments.

  3. Peter Lee:

    Feisty people like you in SC is what I miss most after moving to Boston. Good going and I love your response to the naysayers! Keep it up! I keep telling all my liberal friends that SC is not as bad as they are reported in the news! – at least not ALL people are crazies like the governors they elect (and then only by a small majority of the minority who vote).

  4. Becci:

    Thank you, Peter and Harriet. Peace and love. See you in the trenches.

  5. William Hamilton:

    The Nimrata Pinata was very successful, as for death threats and right wing fundraising openings, everything we do will earn us that. This is what South Carolina is now. Reasoned rational debate won’t activate because we quietly prepare for it and wait for the other side to show up. Nobody will support us unless we show some guts and verve.
