Jake Knotts 'raghead' video finally released ... what took so long

Posted by Chris Haire on Wed, May 16, 2012 at 7:29 AM

Look, I don't care why the long-lost episode of Pub Politics featuring S.C. state Sen. Jake Knotts finally surfaced.

You know the one I'm talking about it. It's the episode of the Columbia-based political talk show in which the Lexington senator proudly proclaims that both Barack Obama and Nikki Haley are closeted ragheads. That's old news.

What bothers me is that we haven't seen this video until now.

The makers of Pub Politics, Wesley Donehue and Phil Bailey, have long refused to release the "raghead" episode. Why? I'm not sure. It's bad for business? Decorum? They're afraid that Knotts will challenge them to a duel? Who the fuck knows. But I can tell you this: If this situation reveals anything at all, it's that the good ole boy system is too much a part of Statehouse life to ever go away.

See, given the right circumstances, the folks in Columbia — whether they're Democrats or Republicans, politicians or political operatives — protect their own. It's not in their best interest that anybody sees them for what they really are, the putrid contents of an overflowing colostomy bag of glad-handing narcissism and sycophant, ball-gargling ambition.

Ladies and gentlemen, in case you didn't know, but the Statehouse is nothing but one big ole circle jerk, a bath house of oily porkers and greased up squealers.

Anyhow, here's the video in question. Judge for yourself.
