Geez, Dad

Less than 12 hours after Alan Wilson kicked off his campaign for South Carolina Attorney General, his Dad embarrassed himself by heckling the President in the Congressional Chamber. Shouting at the President in the midst of a Congressional speech probably won't play so hot in that part of the country, where bigotry is fine as long as it remain polite. This wasn't polite.

Now, the newly minted candidate will be choosing whether to throw his dad under the bus, or give a thumbs-up to this Neanderthal behavior. I know they don't much cotton to President Obama in the Palmetto State, but I don't imagine this is the first day on the campaign trail that Daddy's Boy had in mind. Couldn't happen to a nicer family (and it wouldn't either...)
