Is there no Yahoo! Answers page for minor political figures? Was there no one at AFL-CIO South Carolina President Donna Dewitt's retirement party who said either...
1) "Maybe you shouldn't pummel a pinata with Nikki Haley's face on it."

Every one adds to the Haley legend; every one makes the critics look like lead-paint-chewers.
