The Democrats are so embarrassed and bumfuzzled by their new Senatorial candidate from South Carolina, Alvin Greene, that they're falling over themselves to say he just can't be for real, despite picking up 60% of the state's Democratic vote in primary elections.
Senior Whitehouse advisor David Axelrod says that Greene "doesn't appear" to be legitimate, but was vague on specifics.
The problem that the Democrats are having with Greene is that he is unemployed, facing felony obscenity charges, and in interviews can't seem to recall if he did any campaigning, had any rallies, or much of anything else. In fact, his primary debating skill seems to be the ability to stare into space until his interviewers get bored and change the question.
We'll have to wait to find out if Greene is, as some have claimed, a "plant" from another political party, or whether his somewhat baffling campaign is legitimate.
All that we know for sure is that Democrats elected him by a wide margin...and that he'll be a force to be reckoned with if he ever gets a teleprompter and a wife with well-toned arms.
