A South Carolina lawmaker suggested that new Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene may be intellectually incapable of participating in the general election race. Continues...
The world's biggest whiners -- mostly known as "Democrats" -- are whining and complaining that Republicans in South Carolina selected their nominee for them.
Alvin Greene is a jobless military veteran who won the nomination handily last Tuesday, with 59 percent of the vote. Had more voters known about his felony charge before the primary, Greene would've won by an even bigger margin. This was a Democrat primary, remember.
Greene happens to be black. His defeated opponent -- Vic Rawl -- is a white male. On the basis of fairness and out of their deep love for democracy, Democrats want to nullify the primary, force the black guy to bow out so that the white male who lost the nomination can pretend to be their legitimate nominee. Maybe the White House should offer Greene a job running Rawl's campaign on a platform of diversity.
Democrats are poring over the election results, trying to find out how a candidate few people knew could win a primary, versus that household name, Vic Rawl, who was riding high at 4 percent name recognition.
Appearing on NBC's Meet the Press yesterday, Obama honcho David Axelrod questioned Greene's legitimacy. Already there are demands to see his birth certificate. "This whole thing is odd, and I don't really know how to explain it," said Axelrod, bewildered as to how the candidate who got the most votes mysteriously won.
Axelrod devised a winning campaign strategy for a black candidate named "Hussein," but can't imagine a winning campaign strategy for a black candidate named "Alvin Greene."
Appearing on CNN's State of the Union, Democrat Rep. James Clyburn of South Carolina claimed their nominee must be a "plant", since we all know Democrat primary voters are geniuses. As to who was behind the plot, Clyburn helpfully narrowed down the list of possible suspects to one -- "someone". "I said he was someone's plant, and it turned up after the elections . . . as I said earlier, something untoward was going on," said Clyburn, summoning his awesome detective powers.
Clearly, this "someone" tricked 100,000 people into voting for Greene because, until now, nothing "untoward" has ever happened in a Democrat primary, not with SEIU and ACORN guarding the integrity of elections.
To get to the bottom of this dark plot, Democrat state Rep. Todd Rutherford recently met with Greene personally to share a deep intellectual discussion. Rutherford told Fox News that "about two questions into a conversation with [Greene] it would become apparent that he's not probably fit to answer the questions fitting a Senate candidate." The black candidate even failed Rutherford's literacy test.
Democrats insist there must have been a plot because Rawl won more absentee ballots than Greene -- racking up 84 percent of the vote in one county. Greene getting 59 percent of the vote is "evidence" of fraud, but Rawl getting 84 percent isn't. Greene didn't run any absentee ballot effort whatsoever -- so it's a real shock that Rawl won more absentee ballots.
Before the primary, hardly anyone had ever heard of Rawl or Greene, so it's a good bet that winning was a function of ballot placement, ergo, Greene won, ergo, Democrats and their entire staff at MSNBC will now spend months in a parodic search for answers to this bizarre mystery, thank goodness. Luckily, Keith Olbermann is heading the probe, sparing no effort to unearth the 'Klansmen for Greene' racket crafted by Michael Steele whose plant robbed Rawl of the chance to lose to Sen. Jim DeMint. And they accuse Greene of being dumb.
My Two Cents...
Monday-morning ping! Have a great week, y’all!
LOL. You almost made me think of Ann Coulter there for a minute (Gee, thanks!).
Every black person knows who Al Green is and would vote for him.
They are all unfit.
What's the problem? He sounds like any other graduate from our school systems or lib candidate!
I will go a step further and say that the votors who voted for him are also intellectually incapable of participating in the general election race.
“I will go a step further and say that the voters who voted for him are also intellectually incapable of participating in the general election race.”
You beat me to it. I was just thinking what is wrong with people. They have the ability to get the facts on candidates. Of course admitting that voters make stupid mistakes opens them up to the charge that this is exactly what they did in 2008, 2006, 1992, etc etc.
David Axelrod: Alvin Greene Doesnt Appear To Be Legitimate
Sounds like a Kennedy
Perhaps Karl Rove made a few adjustments to his weather machine...
My fear is that politicians will become so overburdened with stringing sentences together that their brains will tip over and capsize.
Having not said that, I’ll take a dumb politician any day. Better dumb than the smart and evil ones we have far too many of.
Hearing Greene be interviewed is an argument against universal suffrage.
They’d better be careful dragging this guy through the mud, humiliating him so publicly and such.
If they don’t actually manage to get rid of him and replace him, that southern sense of screw-you-a-hole fairness might kick in. Probably already has with the black folks.
“evidence” of fraud” Who ever exposed the democrat machine must be LOL it’s about time.
Mental status is argued to disqualify a candidate. Wow, that could empty D.C.
That was good.
All he has to do is vote “present” for the next two years and he’ll be qualified for the presidency.
