Oh My..

Some time last week I opined about the whole Alvin Greene story in South Carolina. You know the improbable Democratic U.S. Senate candidate. I really did not know what to make of it, I still really don't but it seems the DNC is kind of pissed that this guy won. A guy, who by all accounts did not campaign, did not spend a single dollar on even lawn signs somehow won his party's nomination with about 60% of the vote. I happened to listen to an interview Mr. Greene gave to Mark Levin on his radio show, and let me tell you I was surprised at how little this guy knew about anything regarding his Senate contest. He is by no means a dummy, he graduated from the Univ of South Carolina and served thirteen years in the military (although the circumstances of his discharge are not clear). He was clearly reading off a piece of paper and if Mark asked him any issues based question he just gave the same stock answer, it was almost like hearing Drew Rosenhaus on TO's lawn a few years back. Then I saw a post today on Red State (for you lefties, I read it so you don't have to) by Erick Erickson that sheds a little more light on the subject and how the Democratic Party is going to combat this. Strange things are afoot in South Carolina....
Stuff like this is probably why Alvin Greene is the Democrats’ Senate candidate in South Carolina.

Greene, a man with no home, no money, and no job, beat the Democrats’ hand picked candidate for the right to lose to Jim DeMint in South Carolina. The Democrats are pounding their fists on the table claiming it was a dirty trick.

This is an intentional distraction. Why is it a distraction? Because otherwise the media would be pointing out that a man who spent no money at all and had zero name recognition beat the Democrats’ chosen candidate. That would mean (1) the Democrats’ chosen candidate truly sucked or (2) Democrats in South Carolina are genuinely stupid.

Behold the healing power of “and”.

Proving it is both, the Democrats are set to run a candidate against Alvin Greene as an independent. Who did they pick? Linda Ketner.
If the name sounds familiar it is because Ketner ran against Congressman Henry Brown in 2008. Ketner is a lesbian, which is largely inconsequential, except that added to it she openly hates Christians because of Biblical teachings against homosexuality that non-Christ following preachers tend to avoid or lie about. In the South, however, its readily discussed except among Episcopalians.

So instead of going with the black man who the Democratic voters of South Carolina picked to go against DeMint, the Democrats will fall back on the Christian hating lesbian voters have already rejected at the ballot in one of South Carolina’s congressional districts.

Maybe they should just give up

Erick I would tend to agree with you, giving up may be their best option. Why would they pour money down a sinkhole? This is a seat that Jim DeMint wins handily even against a decent candidate. I just don't get what they are trying to prove by getting involved. The people spoke, they didn't like it, big whoop...time to move on South Carolina Democrats.
