Apparently Ann Romney believed that no one was going to call Democrats and the press onto the carpet over their disgraceful conduct and non-reaction, respectively, after South Carolina Democratic gubernatorial candidate Vincent Sheheen called incumbent Palmetto State Governor Nikki Haley a "whore" — and failed to "apologize" for it for four days.
Mrs. Romney, sadly, is presumptively correct. Searches indicate that the Associated Press still has no national or regional story on what Sheheen said ("we're gonna escort whore out the door"). She correctly asserts that "if a Republican had said this, it would be blowing up in their face like nobody's business." For those who haven't seen it, the Sheheen video, along with excerpts from coverage at Charleston's Post and Courier, follow the jump.
