Presented without commentary, here are some of the Senate candidates who received fewer votes than Alvin Greene did yesterday, according to the most current AP numbers: Senator Harry Reid: 361,655 Senator-elect Mike Lee: 360,050 Alvin Greene: 358,069
Never before has a candidate received so many votes by doing so little. Greene is a minimalist genius.
A few years back, driving into SC, I saw a billboard at the state line that shocked the chitlins out of me. It read something like, &quot;Welcome to South Carolina. #1 in violence against women, #50 in funding for substance abuse treatment and women&#039;s shelters.&quot;
I should have been shocked about the statistics, I guess, but I was more surprised that someone in SC would dare put up a sign like that.
Says more about DeMint&#039;s appeal than anything else.
