South Carolina Gripped by "Alvin Greene Fever"

Or as Byron York so aptly put it....

"This sign is from US 521, near Greene’s hometown, and hotbed of support, in Manning, SC. No signs for Republican Sen. Jim DeMint were spotted anywhere near the area, suggesting that Greene has opened an imposing lead in the early-advertising race."

I know, I'm terrible. It might have been wrong, but laughed my butt off over it anyway. Democrats have nobody to blame for this one except for themselves. Indeed, just how can a guy that has a felony arrest but has "no job, no house, no campaign website, no campaign headquarters -- indeed, no campaign" actually qualify as a legitimate candidate for US Senator for the Democrat party? Ann Coulter sums up the prevailing democrat mindset thusly...

"MSNBC's Keith Olbermann interviewed Greene as if he had Lee Harvey Oswald in the dock. Chris Matthews asked guests: "Do you think this has the look of a dirty trick -- sort of a Watergate number?" Watergate, you'll recall, involved the Nixon White House trying to persuade a mildly retarded black man to run for the Senate.

Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said Greene was not a "legitimate" candidate and called his victory "a mysterious deal." (Yes, how could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?)

They're hopping mad, these liberals, but it's not clear what their theory of the crime is. Before accusing Republicans of committing a dirty trick, apparently no one asked the question: "OK, but what was the trick?"

The key to Greene's victory (in the primary), you see, is that he got more votes. How do liberals imagine Republicans pulled that off? Mesmerize the Democrats into voting for an idiot? If they could do that, John McCain would be president."

Early in the Republic we elected men of wisdom to the posts that write law. Now we're electing men whose honest incompetence is considered the best defense against the current royalty.

That would be the case here if Greene's name wasnt first on the ballot and South Carolina democrats werent lemming-like in their selection process.

Imagine the type of government we would have if they made voting compulsory?

Jquip said...

Same as the phonebook I should think. "Vote for AAAdam AAArchuleta!"

JD Curtis said...

Ya gotta admit though JQP, the entire concept of "Alvin Greene Fever" is pretty darn funny. York is great.

I would like to clarify one thing though, Republicans are every bit as likely to vote for an idiot as well as Coulter mentions towards the end.

I can't tell you how many idiot Republicans I got into it with during the last presidential primary who were convinced that McCain was THE guy to nominate. "Because after all, he'll win over all the independents and centrists and even some of the DEMOCRAT voters!"

Jquip said...

Oh heck, I just want an Alvin Greene action figure.

That said I can sympathize with those that still back the bipartisan ballot profiteering system. We've all been there I think. Best we can do is be patient and teach in a loving manner. I find a 5-iron works best.
