Poor South Carolina. They seem to breed "backasswards" (as Sarah Palin would put it) kinds of leaders. South Carolina's Lt. governor Andre Bauer proves to be an arse. In his explanation of comparing poor kids who get reduced-priced school meals to "stray animals," he said: "Just like when you feed animals, you create dependency," he said. Republicans have this notion that poor people want to be poor, that they want to be taken of and yet when it comes to feeding business, they're always there with a handout.
