On Monday, a South Carolina Democratic consultant named Tyler Jones took a camera down to the Columbia, S.C. Tea Party rally that Michele Bachmann and Nikki Haley both spoke at.
"I interviewed around 25 people total and probably 75 percent of them said they were supporting Donald Trump," says Jones, "and just about every single person is a birther. I took two hours of footage and chopped it down to six minutes of mind-blowing stuff."
Remember those interviews with racist Democratic voters in West Virginia back in 2008? Remember the interviews outside McCain-Palin rallies -- that nice gentleman with the toy monkey who called it "little Hussein"? Yeah. Things are not better now. And there aren't any Democratic primary rallies at which conservatives can record competing videos.
