In Iowa it was intense sincerity, in New Hampshire it was sophisticated ambivalence, what's the pulse of South Carolina voters. Anna Sale has been our non-scientific emissary to voters and voter sentiment in each of these GOP contests. Anna tell us about two events in the state yesterday that give us a snapshot of two important voting blocs in this all important conservative, southern, primary contest.

So politicians speaking of religion on their campaign is wrong but apparently no comment today about religious leaders and a White House advisor using MLK Day in a church to preach nasty and demagogic partisan politics which is supposed to be a tax exempt no-no for a church.

Like the fraudulent call for civility exactly one year ago, the call for separation of church and state depends on what is politically useful for so-called "progressives" and the media of course plays along with the mendacity.

South Carolina,just a few years ago, removed the Confederate flag from the top of its statehouse --- is there any surprise that the mood there is "anyone but Obama"?
