We've all heard the Philosophy 101 question: "If a tree falls in the woods, and no one is around to hear it, does it still make a noise?"
Now we have a Teapublican version of the same question: "If two Teapublicans announce the reelection campaign of one of them, and no one is around to hear it, are they still lying?"
The failed South Carolina Governor Nikkki Haley announced her decision to run again. Why not? If Appalachian Trail hiker Mark Sanford can go from complete disgrace to U.S. Congressman, it should be a shoe in for Haley.
To help her make her announcement, Scott Walker flew down there. (Really, Walker was going for his own fund raiser, but don't tell Haley that.) Maybe it was his job to hold her cue cards, because in a Teapublican's mind, this is more honorable than having a teleprompter.
To say they didn't draw a crowd would be an overstatement. We are talking Charlie Sykes book tour bad.
Even when one of Haley's henchman had forced people out into the sweltering heat, things were still very, very bad:
The only thing I'm not sure on is whether one would say the abysmal turn out was despite Walker being there or because of it.
