|Alvin Greene Wins South Carolina Primary|
Stewart really summed it up:
This is the Republicans’ fault? Really? Even if they fronted the patsy, y’all voted for him. They didn’t trick you. They didn’t enter a guy with a misleading name like Grit Gravy Biscuit or Nascar Johnson or Robert E. Leebowitz. It was Greene, Greene versus Rawl and 100,000 Democrats walked into a polling place and said, “I don’t know either of these guys. I guess I’m ill-informed and I could easily not vote but fuck it, I like the color green more than the color rawl.”
Did the Republicans spend a lot of money on ads for Alvin Greene? No. Did they spend any money on ads for Alvin Greene? No. Did they ask Alvin Greene to leave his father’s basement once during the campaign? No. This is a prank? No. This is the political equivalent of running yourself a warm bath, falling asleep next to it with your hand in the tub, wetting yourself, and then blaming the Republicans.
Note who is upset over Greene winning, the democrat party leadership in South Carolina. Greene, who is clearly the anti-incumbent candidate, won by a wide margin. Maybe it’s South Carolina democrat party leadership who should be paying attention to this “teachable moment.”
