Being Alvin Greene

Before yesterday I didn't have a clue who Alvin Greene was. I caught a bit of his interview on "Countdown" with Keith Olbermann last night and a bit more on "The Rachel Maddow Show." I was aghast. He has no job, no campaign organization, no degree, and no name recognition. He doesn't even have a website. Yet, he was elected as the primary candidate for the Senate in South Carolina. Oh, did I mention he's facing felony obscenity charges? I smell a rat.

You be the judge of his qualifications:

This guy is thoroughly unqualified to serve in the Senate. But, of course, he would never make it anyway. He is obviously being used as a tool to run against the well-funded established Republican candidate, Jim Demint. While I think he's totally unqualified, just think about this. Sarah Palin could have been our president. Same difference.

hmmm... let see if I can over come my nausea long enough to make a comment.

I too smell a rat but I am also sad that this cat feels compelled to be used in this fashion. Hopefully he is being compensated for his troubles.

Yeah, Mark, I have no sympathy for dude at all. He is obviously getting something out of the deal.
