Columbia – While most of the country is lining up at their local bookstores for their copy of Nikki Haley’s “Can’t is Not an Option,” South Carolinians will be left to judge her book by a different cover.
In South Carolina, Haley’s book will be released with the title “Dissent is Not an Option,” along with a special introduction just for residents of the Palmetto State.
“South Carolinians are a special people and you deserve special treatment,” writes Haley in the introduction to the South Carolina-specific version. “The only way we can achieve true transparency in government is for everybody to be on the same page, and that page would be this page in this book that you’re reading right now. Now that we’re all on the same page, there should be no need to question your governor or any of her decisions. That, my friends, is true transparency.”
The forward goes on to say that “by purchasing this version of my book, you hereby agree not to say negative things about the book or the Haley administration, and that you will not support any Republican primary challenger in the next election.”
South Carolina residents seemed to take the news in stride.
“It’s pretty much what we have come to expect from her,” said Columbia resident Jack Dawson. “We were all kind of hoping she’d actually hook up with a winning presidential campaign and grab a cabinet position in a GOP administration, but I guess we’re stuck with her for a while longer. Yay.”
