We have seen the future, and it sucks.

Tim Scott to Be Named for South Carolina Senate Seat, Republicans Say

18th December 2012

Read it.

Mr. Scott, 47, also offers a unique story and background, one that is in scant supply in the Republican Party right now. Raised by a single mother, he was, by his account, a lost child who struggled with school and with life until a Chick-fil-A franchise owner took him on as a protégé and schooled him in conservative principles.

“Coming from a single-parent household and almost flunking out of high school,” Mr. Scott said in 2010, during his bid for the House, “my hope is I will take that experience and help people bring out the best that they can be.”

Prediction: The usual suspects will declare him ‘not black enough’. For how that works, see here.
