Why Elizabeth Colbert Busch Lost: South Carolina Voters Smarter Than Obamabots

Prior to Tuesday’s special election in South Carolina’s 1st Congressional district, the CW (Congressional Wisdom) was that only the most Neanderthal of mouth-breathing conservatives could possibly vote for disgraced ex-governor Mark Sanford, which meant that democrat Elizabeth Colbert Busch, sister of one-trick pony comedian Stephen Colbert, would sail to victory, the leading edge of Barack Obama’s inevitable one-party takeover of America.

Wrong. Mr. Sanford easily defeated Ms. Colbert Busch. How can this be? Actually, it was quite predictable to everyone living outside the liberal media bubble, where there is an epidemic of ECBR (East Coast Brain Rot). Those afflicted, along with clueless adolescents, are among the most enthusiastic fans of Mr. Colbert’s mediocre, hackneyed act, of course. Perhaps they assumed that the celebutard factor would work the same magic for Ms. Colbert Busch that it had for the thin-skinned, unqualified narcissistic former “community organizer” (read Marxist) now occupying the Oval Office.

Ms. Colbert Busch positioned herself as an “independent,” and “moderate” small businesswomen. That narrative fell apart when the public learned that she had deleted over 500 tweets that exposed the real Ms. CB, a phony cut from the same cloth as Barack Obama. Oh you didn’t know about that? Amazingly, the Lame Stream Media failed to mention not only Twittergate, but also Ms. Colbert Busch’s serving jail time for contempt back in the 1980‘s. As these details dribbled out, it was clear that this woman wasn’t who she was pretending to be. From The Charleston City Paper, Tara Sevatius writes:

But Elizabeth 1.0, the author of those deleted tweets, which were saved and archived by the nonpartisan Sunlight Foundation, bears little resemblance to the woman in the campaign’s jobs ads. Her greatest passion, given the number of times she tweets about it, isn’t jobs at all, but gay marriage and equal rights for homosexuals. Kudos to Hillary Clinton “for backing equal rights for our LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) friends” she tweeted in one of nearly a dozen tweets on the subject, “#LoveisLove.”On Twitter, Elizabeth 1.0 is also passionately pro-choice, backed President Barack Obama’s plan to raise the minimum wage, and has openly mocked the GOP’s unwillingness to socialize medicine. “GOP LOGIC: Providing health care to all Iraqis is sound policy. Providing health care to all Americans is socialism,” she tweeted.Her fondness for business doesn’t come up as much in her deleted tweets as her fondness for unions does. Elizabeth 1.0 was pumped to get the endorsement of the United Steelworkers and even went so far as to tweet a request for volunteers and contributions to the AFL-CIO, which endorsed her.The deleted tweets aren’t the only place you can catch a glimpse of Elizabeth 1.0. In a video of her speaking to union leadership captured by Patch.com, the boring business mom from the TV ads doesn’t mention her zeal for business at all. Instead, she leaves the room with the impression that she was going to Washington to fight for … unions. Passionately. “The voices of the union and all unions need to be lifted up,” she says in the video. “Nobody is recognizing that and I promise to be that voice for you. Know that I hear you. Know that I’m working closely with your team.” Who exactly is this woman?

Who indeed. Obviously, South Carolina voters know, and they don’t like her. I suspect that they also don’t like the democrats trying to run their usual con. No doubt they weren’t excited about voting for Mark Sanford, who embarrassed himself with his ridiculous escapades surrounding the diddling of some South American tootsie, but liberals should celebrate their “growth.” Weren’t they the ones who defended Bill Clinton’s stunningly disgraceful conduct as being only about his private life? We agree. Let’s take a look at the policies supported by each candidate and vote on that basis, right liberals?

Right on cue, I’m sure some liberals will now squeal “He used state funds!” That’s why he resigned, Kids, after reimbursing the state, by the way. If Bill Clinton had any sense of decency, that’s what he would have done. It cost us over $6 million to get to the bottom of the Lewinsky mess, none of which was reimbursed by Bill Clinton, who now earns at least $500,000 per speech. All of those expenditures, not to mention the trauma to our country, resulted from his zipper problem.

It also didn’t help that South Carolina has a voter ID law, which democrats hate because it limits their ability to collect the votes of illegal aliens, felons and their other loyal constituencies.

Cheer up, Elizabeth! Perhaps your brother can find a place for you among the dozens of writers it takes to come up with the predictable, unfunny drivel that he recites on his cable tv show.
