Thank God for South Carolina. Always can be relied on to provide a laugh during a political season.

[South Carolina] is the last state to flagrantly continue flying the Confederate battle flag....even at the state capitol....

Not so- there's the Mississippi State Flag, every bit as flagrant and a bit more pusillanimous.

Don't forget the Alabama State Motto: "Thank God for Mississippi".

Personally, I'm waiting for the new South Carolina license plates to come out sporting: "South Carolina: Birthplace of Treason"

Well, she obivously minded--or said she did, which is the same thing--but she could be a Democratic operative looking for a way to discredit Greene. Or he might plea bargin it down to something less than a felony, so the Dems wouldn't have any way to get him kicked off the ticket, and if they do get him kicked off the ticket, what are the black voters in South Carolina going to do?

If she (or anyone watching) minded it is harassment. If she didn't, and neither did any watchers, then it isn't.

I wonder about that, pdq. As I understand it, the charges stem from an image Greene showed to the student on the screen of his lap-top computer. I'm not sure that rises to the level of sexual harassment. And why would that be disclosed? There's been no conviction.

Isn't the real story of Alvin Greene about the felony sexual harassment charges lodged by a 19 year old White college student?

Greene is 32 and rather intimidating physically. The charges were not disclosed before the primary, as far as I can tell.

He could change his name to Redd and run as a Republican... of course they've got DeMint, but...

David Duke is on the other side, Ron. He doesn't want to see blacks get elected. Apparently Clyburn doesn't either, unless they think just like him.

Rig--David Duke is on the line for you. Thinks you're just the man to do some canvassing for him.

The other candidate, Vic Rawl, was a white guy. It was Obama all over again. All the blacks voted for Greene because he was black, and in South Carolina that's all he needed. I suspect we'll see candidates just like Alvin Greene all over the south after this.

...and the other Democratic candidate was underfunded and not much better. It's considered silly for Democrats to spend a lot of money in a race in S. Carolina (and certain other states, these days) when the very extremist conservatives are in the majority.
S. Carolina, besides all the political craziness, is the last state to flagrantly continue flying the Confederate battle flag....even at the state capitol.

Maybe we shoulda LET 'em secede in 1861.

The thinking about alphabetical placement is that it is very important to be near the top, the idea being that some of our well-informed, educated, sophisticated, functionally-literate, civic-minded voters will check off the first name they come to on the ballot. (Same thing holds for the phone directory)

"Why does Congressman Clyburn think he is any more qualified to hold office than Alvin Greene?"

....well, Clyburn in a very intelligent congressman who can answer questions and has 50 years experience on the issues..... and doesn't look like a deer trapped in headlights.

Green is a gen-you-wine ringer. It will be interesting to see who set him up and paid his filing fees. He's nothing but cannon fodder for Jim DeMint.

"alphabetically"? She actually said that about her own party's delegates? Who is/are the/these moron/morons?

Or... am I unfamiliar with Yankee politics?

A little overly cryptic, Rig. Here's a Link


"COLUMBIA, S.C. — An unemployed military veteran who raised no funds and put up no campaign website shocked South Carolina's Democratic Party leadership by capturing the nomination Tuesday to face Republican U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint in November.

"With nearly all precincts reporting, Alvin Greene, 32, commanded 59 percent of the vote against 41 percent for former four-term state lawmaker Vic Rawl, 64, who had raised about $186,000 and had to abruptly scrap a late-week fundraiser for the fall.

"State Democratic Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler said voters unfamiliar with either candidate may have voted alphabetically for Greene over Rawl."

I would have thought somebody would have started a thread on Alvin Greene by now. They haven't, though, so here it is. One question that needs to be answered is: Why does Congressman Clyburn think he is any more qualified to hold office than Alvin Greene?
