On the nomination of Alvin Greene

Alvin Greene won, and won handily, the South Carolina Democrat nomination for United States Senate. Greene has zero chance of beating Republican Senator Jim DeMint, but even by Democrat standards he’s a poor choice to run for any office.

So, naturally, the ever-eager to play the race card Democrats claim that Greene was nominated due to a heinous conspiracy between Karl Rove and Rush Limbaugh. Or something.

As for Greene, who is black and has no discernible qualifications for high office, Ann Coulter captures the essence:

Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said Greene was not a “legitimate” candidate and called his victory “a mysterious deal.” (Yes, how could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?)

They’re hopping mad, these liberals, but it’s not clear what their theory of the crime is. Before accusing Republicans of committing a dirty trick, apparently no one asked the question: “OK, but what was the trick?”

The key to Greene’s victory, you see, is that he got more votes. How do liberals imagine Republicans pulled that off? Mesmerize the Democrats into voting for an idiot? If Republicans could do that, John McCain would be president.

Don’t worry Democrats. Relief is on the way; after this November you may be able to shift some blame on the Republicans who have increased mightily thanks to your malfeasance.
