For those of you who aren’t in the southern portion of the Mid-Atlantic/northern portion of the Southeast United States, you may have missed out on one of the best stories coming out of this past Tuesday’s primary races. In fact, while I love the fact that strong women are winning primaries and elections all over the country (studies show that when voters want common sense in government, they vote for women), I have to suggest that the biggest story coming out this past Tuesday is the nomination of Mr. Alvin Greene in South Carolina.
Who is Alvin Green, you ask? Well, he happens to be the gentleman who won this week’s primary in South Carolina for the Democratic Party’s nomination to run for the United States Senate. Oh, he also happens to have been discharged from the Air Force and the Army and he also has a pending sexual harassment charge (I think) against him. Oh, and he spent less than $2,000 on his “campaign” for this nomination. You know what? Just watch the video…
Truthfully, I don’t know whether I absolutely despise Mr. Greene or find him to be a breath of fresh air. Granted, it seems like he has a sordid past and he clearly doesn’t know a damn thing about the issues, but once upon a time the majority of our Senators and Representatives were very similar to Mr. Greene.
Do you have any thoughts on this guy? I’ll tell you what – he’s pretty entertaining!
