Subject: RE: BS:Alvin Greene-So. Carolina congressional primary
Ah, South Carolina -- "Too small for a republic, too large for an asylum." Birthplace of treason and secession, indeed, and not much seems to have changed there.
As for what this says about Democrats, it's odd that Greene got so few absentee ballots and so many (more than the votes cast in some cases) from the impossible-to-audit electronic voting machines. His alphabetical position, his name (for some reason, Greene with that "e" is considered a "black" name), and questionable voting machines means DeMint, who was pretty much going to win anyway, has an opponent who is barely competent to answer to his name (have you seen an interview with the man?).
It's what they have called a "rat-f*ck" since the days of Dick Nixon and, latterly, Carl Rove, and a rat-f*ck in true Republican dirty-tricks style. What is not evident is why the Repuglicans bothered. I guess it's just that they could.
South Carolina. Too small for a republic....
