So it takes "balls" to insult the lady? Is this the "War on Women" we keep hearing about?

The Daily Fail is a gossipy tabloid without any facts. A tabloid that has accused Facebook and colds of causing cancer, pronounced Amanda Knox as guilty when she was not-guilty, and the problem with since is that it relies on facts. For shame in using something not substantiated by any proof in order to rally up hatred in order to demonize people.
It was a bit of stretch, I'll agree. Righties always LOVE to play the victim card. Cue Glenn Beck and his crying ~ now.

Double standards are at play here.

I would say it was a racist comment because he either was making the assumption that Haley couldn't possibly be an American/born in America due to her ethnic heritage or was implying that she doesn't truly belong here(or a part of South Carolinian society) on the account of her ethnicity.

From what I've noticed, Dems usually remain mum when one of their own engage in this sort of stuff even though they are face-palming behind closed doors, while Repubs don't really care enough about the behavior, other than to gain political capital, to speak up about it.

Even saying Obama's middle name was denounced as racist by the Left.

Conservatives are outraged after a Democrat in South Carolina allegedly insulted Republican Gov. Nikki Haley's Indian heritage at a party gathering in Columbia on Friday.

The state's Democratic Party Chairman, Dick Harpootlian, is believed to have said the party will take on the Conservative in the next gubernatorial race and send 'Nikki Haley back to wherever the hell she came from.'
Gov. Haley was born in the U.S. but her parents are from India.
