@Theaetetus,
You are also free to be as stupidly ignorant as you choose while I rely on the facts.

@Pangloss,

Your comments here on A2K reveal that you don't like anyone that much with the possible exception of yourself.

Well, getting back to the thread topic, and speaking as a South Carolinian, we technically did not "nominate this guy." He somehow managed to pony up the fee to get on the democrat primary ballot and the fine democrats in our state voted for him en masse for some reason. Some did so because his name was the first one on the ballot. Some actually did so because the name was somewhat familiar (his name is the same as a particular entertainer's.) I'm sure some did so because he was black (just as some I am sure voted for Rawl because he was white.) The fact that he was elected to be the democrat nominee for Congress says more about the average intelligence of the voters than it does anything else.

In any case, I don't think Jim DeMint has anything to worry about as far as his re-election bid is concerned. Unless the democrats can get Greene out of the race they have no chance of his winning.

@Irishk,
Yeah, that may well have helped him. lol

Honestly, if I were a democrat and had voted for this guy, for whatever reason, I sure wouldn't be admitting to it.

Like the woman in the video I posted. She admitted she voted for Alvin because he reminded her of the singer, Al Green, but then had the nerve to criticize Florida voters LOL!!!

@Irishk,
Yeah. People like her make me think we really should have some type of intelligence test to be allowed to vote. Of course, that probably wouldn't work either. I'm sure some of the democrat voters who voted for Greene were intelligent people. I mean, I realize they were democrats, but I'm told some dems are smart. Wink

Alvin Greene: “I am also the best person to be TIME magazine’s Man of the Year”

Greene maintains that the answer is much simpler. “I am the best candidate for the United States Senate in South Carolina,” he says, hitting his talking points, as he is apt to do. “And I am also the best person to be TIME magazine’s Man of the Year.” He is speaking now, between trips to the kitchen, in the living room, while his 81-year-old father, James, Sr., barefoot under a flannel blanket, dozes on the couch. Suddenly, the television flashes Greene’s face, as a Fox News announcer teases an upcoming segment asking about the newbie’s “mental state.” This gets to Greene, who is tired of being treated by the press like a carnival act. “What about everyone else’s mental state?” he asks, before breaking into a chuckle. “It seems like things don’t apply to me. I’m the nominee, and 60 percent isn’t 60 percent anymore.”…

Greene says he paid the $10,400 filing fee with his own Army savings, and he never had professional help from outside. He wants to get on with building a campaign, based around his three issues: jobs, education and “justice in the judicial system.” But there are signs everywhere that he has no idea how to proceed. He says he is still waiting for the state party to provide him with money and infrastucture to launch his campaign, but the state chairwoman, Carol Fowler, says she will not back someone facing charges “for something truly distasteful.” When first asked if he would grant an interview with TIME, Greene responded by asking a question of his own: “Does the candidate get paid?”

I think we'd all agree that Alvin's not the best candidate for the senate, but he's probably better than many of the scumbags we have in there now.

I missed this post, and just now finally caught up with TDS on my DVR. First thing I did was come to A2K; what a joke this guy is, and yes, our voters are really stupid.

@Pangloss,
Sad, but how true. One U.S. Congressman from my area, Jim Sensenbrenner, is repeatedly chosen as the worst or one of the worst politicians of the country. I would vote Greene over him any day. When you have a giant douche in office, anyone else is better--no matter how qualified they may not be. Of course, Sensenbrenner is almost impossible to remove, because his district conveniently lacks any major minority neighborhoods or large colleges or universities, thus, a candidate cannot be run to receive all the minority or student votes.
