Anti-Mormon dirty tricks flying fast in South Carolina

Republicans love dirty tricks. They are famous for using them. Karl Rove built a career out of perpetrating them. Rove's masterpiece was the push poll during the 2000 GOP South Carolina primary that planted the story that John McCain had an illegitimate child with an African American woman. That story cost McCain the South Carolina primary, and by extension, the Republican nomination in 2000.

Nothing has changed, especially in South Carolina.

The latest dirty trick to rear it's head is a fake "Holiday" card purporting to be from the Romney family. The card contains a quote from the Book of Mormon, as well as a quote from one of the original Mormon Apostles in support of polygamy. Needless to say, the Romney campaign had nothing to do with sending out these cards.

No one has stepped forward to claim responsibility for the cards.

Adding insult to injury, the fake card wasn't even a Christmas card, it was a "Holiday" card. No doubt the scumbags who sent this card intend to argue that Romney is not only a polygamist, but a part of the "War on Christmas."

Ladies and Gentlemen, I give you the Republican Party.
