Would it be filthy to say Nikki Haley has a little Mark Sanford in her? I'd only mean it in the best way possible. Besides, the "I-did-Nikki" stories are already played out in South Carolina politics.

Now that she's the Republican nominee to succeed Sanford as governor (and you know he can't wait for his term to end), Haley is getting to discuss her positions talk about what she'd do if elected. Top of the list: stimulus payments, a Sanford classic.

Newly-minted South Carolina Republican gubernatorial nominee Nikki Haley showed her conservative bona fides Wednesday in an interview that aired on CNN's John King, USA.

"Absolutely not," Haley said when asked by CNN Chief National Correspondent John King whether, as governor, she would accept additional economic stimulus funds from Democratically-controlled Washington. "You know, that's the problem that we've had right now, is government is trying to be all things to all people. What we need to understand is, this is not about losing teachers, this is not about losing law enforcement, this is not about what you spend, it's about how you spend."
Very admirable approach. And Sanford no doubt would approve. But Darling Nikki will need to find a better argument than Sanford used if it comes to that.

Some say he’s half man half fish, others say he’s more of a seventy/thirty split. Either way he’s a fishy bastard.
