This Is Painful

OH. MY. GOD! South Carolina's Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene in an interview...I just can't describe this:

RealClearPolitics - Video - SC-Sen: Alvin Greene Can't Immediately Name GOP Opponent Jim DeMint

But, it's not just the fact that he obviously has to consult his notes to come up with the name of his opponent in the upcoming election. He stammers and stumbles throughout the entire interview.

If this guy gets I said, I just can't describe this.

it's probably because Obama didn't back him

This man as the story goes showed up at the Democratic party office with the $10,000 application fee in cash. This was after being unemployed for six months and living at his parents house. Then he didn't do anything with his candidacy. No events, no speeches, no signs or commercials...nothing. Yet somehow on election day he won with almost landslide numbers.

There may be two other candidates that have had similar stories or people around them from the other party.

Not to mention the circus that erupted when a conservative blogger came out and said he'd had a 2-month affair with the leading Republican candidate for Governor.

Politics in South Carolina is apparently a contact sport.

"Yet somehow on election day he won with almost landslide numbers."

Oh yeah somehow! Democrats don't care who they vote for. They vote for the label. He won because his name was first one the list alphabetically. This is proof that people vote democrat because they don't have enough information to make an informed decision or they lack the mental capacity to make an informed decision.

From Wikipedia: "Though his victory has baffled many, several explanations have been offered. Some observers, including State Representative Bakari Sellers, have stated that the fact that his name appeared above Vic Rawl may have caused voters who were unfamiliar with either candidate to vote for Greene. South Carolina State Senator Robert Ford claimed that the surname "Greene" is common among African Americans, and suggested that fact may have caused African American voters to identify with him. There has also been speculation that voters may have confused the candidate with soul singer Al Green, whose real name is Albert Greene."

These observations were made by fellow Democrats:

They suggested that African American voters identified with him.

I suspect the same is true of why blacks overwhelmingly voted for Obama.

Most voters, Republican and Democrats, know little about the candidate they support. But, there are more uninformed Democrat voters, if the election of Obama is any indication.

Your First Amendment right to free speech is a privilege and comes with a measure of responsibility. You have the right to exercise that responsibility here but we reserve the right to inform you when you've used that right irresponsibly.

We are benevolent dictators in this regard. Enjoy.
