CNN: South Carolina Democrats mock GOP debate
By: CNN Political Reporter Peter Hamby
Greenville, South Carolina (CNN) - South Carolina Forward Progress, an independent group formed this week by a group of Democratic operatives, held a carnival-like press conference outside Thursday's Republican presidential debate in Greenville, South Carolina.
Lachlan McIntosh, one of the group's founders, mocked the five candidates appearing in the debate, calling the Fox News production a "circus" and "a celebration of extremism."
"Every circus needs a good sideshow," McIntosh said, gesturing to a handful of jugglers, clowns, "birthers" and a man dressed as an elephant dancing behind him.
