Nikki Haley’s response to Donald Trump. …And, oh, yeah, Barack Obama’s State of the Union speech:

Republican South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was tapped to give the official Republican response to the State of the Union tonight, and you will be gratified to hear that it was… good.  This is not a reflection on Gov. Haley’s speaking skills, which were in full display today. Especially the bit where she cuts somebody with a knife and a smile, in the authentic South Carolinan manner – but more on that in a moment. Suffice it to say that Haley nailed the speech.

Which is interesting, because the speech was only incidentally about Barack Obama’s State of the Union.  Well, maybe a bit more than ‘incidentally;’ but this speech was primarily to let Donald Trump know that after Iowa and New Hampshire comes South Carolina. And that Nikki Haley has no intention whatsoever to make life easy for Donald Trump while he’s down there.

In case you missed it, the speech can be found here.
