No, this will probably not stop the crazy son of a bitch, but it might give him something to think about.

For those who have not been paying attention for the past few days, South Carolina’s attorney general, Henry McMaster, has joined a band of other Republican AGs, suing the federal government to stop implementation of the the historic healthcare reform, which was passed by a majority of the U.S. House and Senate and signed into law by President Obama.

FYI, this same Henry McMaster is also running for the GOP gubernatorial nomination. Think these two facts are coincidence?

Here is the way USC law professor Jay Bender explained McMaster’s behavior: “He’s running for another office and his primary is going to be controlled by people who don’t like government, particularly the federal government. If you’re running in a Republican primary for governor, you would challenge the federal government at every opportunity. And my suspicion is that’s what Henry is doing. He’s appealing to his base using the Tenth Amendment.”

Yep, we’ve got a rabid and reckless politician on our hands, but you can go on Facebook and let him know what you think. To see more details and confirm this group invitation, http://www.facebook.com/group.php?gid=107284435959900&ref=mf.
