    South Carolina Pol Questions Dem Senate Candidate's 'Mental Status'

    I think the title should be "Another act of desperation by sore losers",but breaking news rules forbid me from using a title different from the news story.


    FOXNews.com - South Carolina Pol Questions Dem Senate Candidate's 'Mental Status'

    A South Carolina lawmaker on Sunday suggested that new Democratic Senate nominee Alvin Greene may be intellectually incapable of participating in the general election race.

    State Rep. Todd Rutherford told Fox News that he went to Greene's house to discuss with him how Greene succeeded last week in becoming the candidate to challenge Republican Sen. Jim DeMint in the November election, but he found it difficult to decipher an answer.

    "About two questions into a conversation with him, it would become apparent that he is not probably fit to answer the questions befitting a Senate candidate," said Rutherford, a Democrat. "If he was put into this, then it is a joke that is funny to all the rest of us, but he doesn't get it -- because I don't know that his mental status is such that he can get it."

    On Friday South Carolina authorities launched a formal investigation into Greene's unlikely win. The campaign of his vanquished opponent, Vic Rawl, said it too is looking into reports across the state from voters and poll workers who "experienced problems with voting for whom they intended."
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    We already know there are many Democrats who only like democracy when their guy wins...

    'Being There'

    Thanks to the Dems, this is a lot funnier than it should be. The poor guy obviously rates in the "Dullard" region of the IQ chart. It will be real fun to find out exactly how Greene won the vote, got his funding to enter the race, and got his USC degree.

    Alvin is the real life Chauncey Gardener. Let's see how far he gets. Maybe even POTUS! Certainly can't make any worse decisions than the current guy.

    That works as well.

    Seriously, I feel for the poor guy. How on earth did he get himself into this. It will be interesting to learn more. ...if the press allows.
