Stupid In Spartanburg April 20, 2007

only an idiot


FITSNews – April 20, 2007 – There’s a remote chance that a severely retarded orangutan could write a worse press release than Spartanburg County GOP Chairman Rick Beltram, but we seriously doubt it. You’d have to catch that orangutan on a really slow day. Amazingly, Beltram’s latest press release is one of his stronger offerings. For example, in welcoming former Arkansas Gov. Mike Huckabee to Sparkle City tonight, Beltram writes:

Gov. Huckabee has had great success of getting a large percentage of the African American when he ran for Governor in Arkansas.

Uhhh … okay. We guess it is pretty impressive when you get a large percentage of an individual human being.

Honestly, reading Beltram’s prose is a lot like listening to Borat talk. We especially like it when he introduces another guest speaker with the promise that he “will encourage local African American to take a close look at the GOP.”

Because apparently Spartanburg – like Arkansas – has only one black resident.

That pales in comparison to the brilliant election-eve letter from a (GOP) candidate for the General Assembly in ’98 that was titled, ‘To my black friends.” It then went on to accuse Democrats of buying black votes and advising his constituents that they will go to jail if they accept some illegal inducement.

The total feel of desperation coupled with latent racism and paranoia was the perfect end to the race.

You are so jealous that you are not allowed to live OR work in Spartanburg!

Thank you for your candid self-analysis.
