Haley Offers S.C. Senate Status Update

Nikki Haley is having some fun on Facebook today.

With plenty of attention on the GOP South Carolina governor while she mulls who to appoint to Sen. Jim DeMint's soon-to-be vacant Senate seat, this afternoon she first posted lyrics to Adele's song "Rumour Has It," and followed that with a "vetting" document on Stephen Colbert.

Haley posted the following lyrics from Adele's song:

"People say crazy things, Just 'cause I said it, don't mean that I meant it, Just 'cause you heard it, Rumour has it........."

Haley has posted lyrics on her Facebook page before (in late November, she excerpted Tom Petty's "American Girl"), and she talked to Marie Claire about her love of music.

Her spokesman told the Washington Post not to read anything regarding the rumors and the appointment into the lyrics she posted today.

Not long after posting the lyrics, Haley posted a link to a document "vetting" the comedian, who is originally from South Carolina and has been joking about wanted to be selected for the seat. The document hits Colbert, among other things, on not knowing the state amphibian and once saying he'd like to "stumble around Columbia, the capital, like pantless with a bottle of Jack Daniels and try to get arrested" if he actually got on the ballot in 2008.
