Alvin Greene: The Most Qualified Democrat I Have Ever Seen
by Ann Coulter
Democrats have decided that Alvin Greene’s surprise victory in the South Carolina Democratic senatorial primary must be the result of a Republican dirty trick.
Greene beat Vic Rawl, a former state representative and judge, with a whopping 60 percent of the vote in last Tuesday’s primary, despite Greene’s having no job, no house, no campaign website, no campaign headquarters — indeed, no campaign. Other than paying the $10,000 filing fee, Greene seems to have put no effort into the race whatsoever.
But he does have one thing Rawl doesn’t have: In the grand tradition of legendary Democrats such as Teddy Kennedy, Greene has a felony arrest. (Greene’s inexperience really shows here: Democrats usually wait until after they’re elected to show pornography to college girls.)
So this is not good for the Democrats. Naturally, therefore, they’re blaming Republicans.

I can’t believe I’m actually posting this.
And then we have a few reactions:
Obviously, there are SO many more, but hey, you can do your own work once in a while!
My reaction after stooping to watch the video? “Whut?” Seriously? Is that the best he can do after this long? There are people seriously hurting, blocked from acting by government red tape, and what is his response? “Why yes, let’s destroy the economy even more with my irrational plan to raise everyone’s bills, that the country can NOT afford!” The man has been sitting on his thumb, spinning, for nearly two months now, and the only thing he can come up with is creating another government bureaucracy? Jeeeeez! Yeah….that’s really going to help the economic recovery. /snark
A side note: (and totally irrelevant) That teeth whistle drives me bugshit! Just sayin’.
Ooops! Almost forgot!

A Crisis of Competence
Nearly 31 years ago, on July 15, 1979, President Jimmy Carter told the American people from the Oval Office: “Energy will be the immediate test of our ability to unite this nation, and it can also be the standard around which we rally. On the battlefield of energy we can win for our nation a new confidence, and we can seize control again of our common destiny.” Last night the American people heard almost the exact same speech from President Barack Obama: “I’ve returned from a trip to the Gulf Coast to speak with you about the battle we’re waging against an oil spill that is assaulting our shores and our citizens. … The tragedy unfolding on our coast is the most painful and powerful reminder yet that the time to embrace a clean energy future is now. Now is the moment for this generation to embark on a national mission to unleash America’s innovation and seize control of our own destiny.”
