These days, we would say most politicians are like kindergarteners with all their name-calling, but that statement would be an insult to the cute little kindergarteners out there. (Shout out to Mademoiselle Zahara Jolie Pitt). If it’s not Beck picking on innocent children, it’s this South Carolina state Senator calling the President–and gubernatorial candidate, Nikki Haley–”ragheads.” So classy.                         

CNN reports:

A longtime South Carolina state Senator with a reputation for blunt language used the term “raghead” to describe Republican gubernatorial candidate Nikki Haley and President Obama during an appearance on a political talk show Thursday.

Haley is of Indian-American descent.

State Sen. Jake Knotts, who backs Lt. Gov. Andre Bauer in the four-way Republican primary battle, made the remark during an interview on “Pub Politics,” a popular online political talk show in Columbia.

“We already got one raghead in the White House, we don’t need a raghead in the governor’s mansion,” Knotts said, according to multiple people present for the broadcast.

Okay. Not to be superficial about Knott’s raghead comment, but have you seen the guy’s own head? And chin? Not the sexiest things since sliced bread, obviously. *shudder*
