You gotta love what's going on with Alvin Greene in South Carolina. I don't know which part makes me laugh more. Fist, there's Congressman Clyburn's conspiracy theory that the Republican Party planted Greene in the race -- which requires you to believe that the Republicans were desperate to take Greene's opponent out of the running -- in a state where DeMint wins by overwhelming majorities. Then, after planting Greene, they shrewdly didn't have him campaign. Then they somehow convinced the Democratic party not to do any opposition research on Greene. Then they convinced Greene's opponent to completely ignore him and not do any campaigning on his own. Then they convinced 60% of the voters to vote for Greene.
Then there's the elitist undercurrent running through it -- how did a peasant like Greene get the money to file for election? He's not one of us and shouldn't be on the ballot!
But finally, there's the sheer audacity for Clyburn to act so high and mighty about where Greene's $10,000 came from. After all, Clyburn's pockets are full of other people's money, including, including $31,000 from General Electric and $110,000 from labor unions -- over $2 million overall.
