Demotivational Poster: Alvin Greene
Democrats love to ridicule Republicans—from Dan Quayle and George W. Bush, to Sarah Palin and Christine O’Donnell—as being knuckle-dragging, mouth-breathing Neanderthals with only a single brain cell among them. No surprise that South Carolina Democrats were shocked when their Senatorial candidate was revealed to be Alvin Greene—an unemployed, discharged army officer living in his father’s basement and incited with showing pornography to a minor. With zero political experience and poor communication skills (as was proved in his interview with Keith Olbermann), Greene makes Sarah Palin look overqualified as a politician.
Many Democrats argued that Greene was a plant from the Republican Party (though that didn’t change the fact that Democrats still voted for the guy). Others insisted that, despite his incompetence, they would rather vote for Greene than his opponent Jim DeMint (then again, Democrats would rather vote for a rock than any Republican candidate). But nothing could change the fact that, with only 28% of the vote, Greene lost to DeMint.
And the “smart” Democrats have nobody to blame but themselves.
