commentary on Politics and a little bit of everything else

Jack with our new Alvin Greene/Jim Demint Update…..

Today Vic Rawl filed a formal protest which means the Democratic State Committee will hold a hearing

In my view Rawl doesnt believe that he can overturn the result but is tryinbg to smoke out where Greene got the ten grand to run from

There’s an interesting sidenote to all this that I havent seen mentioned

Most people havent paid attention but Jim DeMint actually had a primary opponent

Her name was Susan Gaddy, a Charleston Lawyer

Like Greene….. she did no campaigning

Republicans loudly denounced her candidacy noting she had supported Obama and was considered a Democrat

I’m wondering if some enterprising Republican decided to similarly screw with the Democrats with the Greene caper?

If Greene’s criminal charges go away….I’m sorry…I don’t see how he can be denied his position running against DeMint….

It is surprising for South Carolina Democrats….

But what can they legally do?

They also had to be asleep at the wheel to let this happen in the first place…..

DeMint seems to be the King in the race……

The Dog….

  1. James B, Greene is a CRIMINAL who needs to drop out of the Senate race.

    DeMint wins big anyways because it’s embarrassing the SC Democrats didn’t do a background check on candidates running for statewide office.

    They couldn’t get one of the Democratic House members to run.

  2. South Carolina Democrats

    If you are somehow out there

    Your guy Greene is a GOOD CANDIDATE

    HE is unemployed which in a state like SC resonates with the citizens

    and he was in the Service

    this can be a GOOD RACE.. and I think can be a GOOD PREPARATION for Demint

    to take on President Obama in the future

    if not Obama for 2012

    Perhaps Obama’s third term for 2016

  10. Yeah it’s a cute little game that means nothing but is still played from time to time by conservative politicians and their buddies on radio/FOX News.

    The thought that someone like Jacob Javits would be welcomed in today’s GOP is really laughable.
