Yes, but at the time, that's where the smart kids sat.

             But seriously, I guy just came out with a book--I ordered it, it's not political, and so far I've just skimmed through it--but the name of it is "Why Boys Can't Learn." It has a lot to say about changes that have been made in public schools, and sheds some light on why boys are dropping out of school at such high rates.

             Mistakes have been made.

               Can't argue with that, but it's not all about money. Remember the "busing" fiasco, then we got "affirmative action," "title nine," and they started screwing around with curriculum to drive down boy's math scores. So the only people who could succeed were folks who were good at running-off-at-the-mouth; the smart kids learned to sit at the back of the room and keep their mouths shut. Now we got a government full of those mouthy idiots and look at the shape.

               I'm not a tea party member, and I don't agree with a lot of what they're about, but smart kids being able to succeed is part of what the tea party movement is trying to bring back.

               The Democrats have Alvin Greene!

what are you implying about state flags, when you make statements like the ones above? The Scottish rebels were defeated by the English in the 1700s, so now you're a backwater hick if you fly the Scottish flag? or should it just be removed from the Union Jack altogether?
That sounds like a bunch of old women complaining about a teenage girl in a short skirt, seems like there's way more important things to worry about. South Carolina has its problems, but its got nothing on any other state. Kinky Friedman took a pretty good shot at unseating Governor "39%" Perry, what did the Democratic party do? They smeared him and helped reelect the most pathetic, corrupt governor in Texas since the governor right before him.

I'm reluctant to endorse any sweeping "throw-the-baby-out-with-the-bath-water" call such as "throw out all the incumbents."
There are some very competent, responsible, honest, and dedicated members of Congress, such as Bernie Sanders, Russ Feingold, Jeff Merkley, and Dennis Kucinich. (There are probably a couple Republicans too. I just don't follow them as closely.).

One thing's for sure: If we throw out all the incumbents, the newly elected ones will be even more surely and securely owned by the big corporations, because no one else will have the huge financial backing it takes to get elected now (since the SCOTUS decision in Citizens United).

Ebbie, I seriously doubt that alphabetical placement would account for the overwhelming majority of the "votes" that Greene got, especially when his opponent did have some name recognition. Rawl is a former four-term state lawmaker Vic Rawl. That should make for enough name recognition in HIS OWN district to compensate a lot for ordinal position on the ballot.

DougR, you say there's "no sign of fraud yet?" Get serious. First, there's the huge question of where and how this unemployed, "indigent" guy came up with the $10k filing fee -- and the law requires that donations be disclosed unless they're very small monetary amounts.
There's no evidence that Greene campaigned - When interviewed about how and where he campaigned, he was about as specific as Sarah Palin was about what magazines & newspapers she reads.   

There are also numerous registered S Carolina voters who testified that they tried to vote for Rawls and the touch-screen machines kept trying to register the vote for Greene.

There's really no credible evidence that Green got more votes than Rawl, because there is no way to verify the accuracy of the vote count!    We have to trust that the machines are not only accurate (no glitches or bugs and were not hacked) but were not deliberately programmed to flip votes.

Add to that the fact that anyone, including Republicans, could vote to choose the Democratic Party nominee. And both Parties have been known at times in the past, where there are open primaries, to encourage their voters to vote in the other Party's primaries, especially when their own nominee has no challenger or seems to have the primary sewn up.

Even if Al Greene did actually get 60% to Rawl's 40%, that does not suggest that it was the Democrats who voted for him.

What the Republicans gain by this outcome is that neither they nor DeMint have to spend any money on the fall election, so they can spend that money elsewhere - such as trying to unseat Nancy Pelosi or Harry Reid.

It is both amazing and depressing to me that the Democratic Party officials (including most Congressional members) will not speak out against the use of unverifiable "black box" voting machines and/or against the placing of elections operations (registering and tallying the votes) in the hands of private corporations, with no transparency in either the voting process or the vote counting.

If Alvin Greene can be "elected" to be the Democratic Party Senate nominee in S. Carolina under the circumstances of this primary election, then who knows how many governmental positions will be filled in 2010 and 2012 under similarly suspect circumstances?

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....
