State Senator Jake Knotts of South Carolina has become America's least popular meme after calling Indian-American gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley a "raghead" on some Internet radio show for "pub politicians." According to theAssociated Press, Knotts said, "we have one [raghead] in the White House, we don't need one in the governor's mansion." Does he really believe that alleged marriage bomber Nikki Haley would turn said mansion into a training camp for fellow muslin sextremists? No, of course not! It was just a funny joke, ha.


Ha?

"If it had been recorded, the public would be able to hear firsthand that my 'raghead' comments about Obama and Haley were intended in jest," Knotts said in his statement. "Bear in mind that this is a freewheeling, anything-goes Internet radio show that is broadcast from a pub. It's like local political version of Saturday Night Live, which is actually where the joke came from."

Your Wonkette was not able to find this raggedy-raghead SNL sketch on Google, YouTube, Hulu, or any other Internet teevee channel, so perhaps it is a special pay-per-view thing? We did come across a Jake Knotts info-page, though, and learned many interesting things!

  • His hobbies include boxing, restoring/building hot rods, and "weapon proficiency shooting practice."
  • He belongs to the Masons, the Sons of Confederate Veterans, and the NRA, among other groups.
  • He has a daughter named Nikki (what a coincidence!)
  • He enjoys shag music. (BONUS: watch this couple dance to shag in some parking lots.)
  • In 1996, he invented the quote, "If you do the crime, be prepared to do the time!,” because the way everyone else says it is too mellifluous.
  • "I still believe Ms. Haley is pretending to be someone she is not," Knotts said upon issuing an apology or whatever, for his bigotry. Eh, he's probably just frustrated that he can't "make it" with her because he is rooting for her opponent, Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer, whose flags have Confederate rainbows instead of crescent moons.

Gonna be a long day, y'all, you ready to dive in? We should note at the outset that any of the questions about obstruction of justice are colored by the fact that Trump refused to sit for an interview with Robert Mueller. Guess that's part of why Robert Mueller refused to clear him! But anyway, we will have more time for thoughts as we read.

Let's read the Mueller Report!

April 20 will be the 20th anniversary of the massacre at Columbine High School. Mother Jones yesterday published a report on mass shooters (or would-be shooters) who in one way or another mentioned the Columbine murders as something they wanted to emulate, or as a benchmark they hoped to outdo. Since 1999, there have been more than 100 plots or actual attacks influenced by Columbine. MoJo national affairs editor Mark Follman notes,

And those are just the cases for which there is some kind of public record: In talking with law enforcement and mental health sources who work to prevent such attacks, I've learned of dozens more Columbine-influenced threats that never made the news.
