My parents voted for this moron.

Fortunately for me, I live in a different district.

Last Friday at the South Carolina Republican Party gathering in Greenville, SC, US Rep. Tim Scott (R-SC) said something on federal government subsidies to the oil companies that didn’t make a whole lot of sense as anything except as an evasion:

FANG: Government’s obviously spending billions every year in oil subsidies and it was just found out this week that in the first quarter, the big oil companies, Exxon, Chevron, whatever, made thirty five billion. And they’re still getting taxpayer money. What do you think of that? Is that fair?

SCOTT: Well, A) I have not seen the report so I can’t tell you whether it’s fair or not. I think everybody — fair is a relative word.

I guess an extension of Scott’s reasoning could be that segregation in the American South was a “relative” inconvenience for a certain demographic group.

Relatively speaking, of course…
