Three days before the South Carolina Republican primary it seems like time has run out for Mitt Romney’s GOP rivals. The former Massachusetts governor is winning by a large margin in South Carolina polls, and should he go on to win the Palmetto state, he most likely will earn the Republican presidential nomination. But who knows what attacks will be launched, endorsements will be made and what surprises might be in store over the next 72 hours. Chad Connelly, South Carolina's GOP chairman, talks about the political climate in his home state.

"They were booing the way this [gay soldier] asked the question and tried to pin [Santorum] down." Uh, right. And that's a good thing? And Juan Williams, race-baiting? Yikes. I guess it's good to give Connelly airtime and let him expose himself as a raging bigot, but he's pretty hard to listen to. Celeste, thanks for calling him on his bullsh*t.

Your Chad Connolly interview is not the first one you've done in recent days where a prominent Republican has accused the sitting president of being a Marxist. I've been a political 'junkie' since my college days in the 1970's, and I *never* recall a nastier meme being launched unchallenged on a national campaign. Letting these people get away with saying this unchallenged lets this meme grow and fester, and if you can't call them out in your interview, you need to do a segment or two on the sheer toxicity of the GOP in coordinating this pernicious lie.
