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.
