It's Pretty Easy Being Greene

In a previous post, I blasted Scott Lee Cohen for running for Lt. Governor of Illinois due to his ugly past that involved domestic abuse and drug abuse. After much pressure, he eventually dropped out of the race. (He now has loftier goals and wants to be Governor)

Now, there is the strange story of Alvin Greene, who lives at home with his dad, has no cell phone, no computer and no job...yet over 100,000 South Carolinians voted for him as the Democratic nominee in the race for Senator.

Greene did no fundraising, had no ads, and of course, no website. He uses the library computer.

In November of last year, Greene was arrested for sending obscene photos over the internet and could get up to a five year sentence if or when a trial is ever set.

You know what? If people are too stupid to look into who these people are who are going to make decisions on their behalf, well, then leave it. Greene is being pressured from the Democratic party to step down but he refuses to do so, and I ask, why should he?

The people have spoken.
