The case of Alvin Greene, who is now the Democratic Party’s nominee to run against Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC), is bizarre. Greene never gave a speech, started a website, hired a staff, planted a lawn sign or spent his campaign funds — of which he currently has just $114 — on anything besides the filing fee. Yet he won Tuesday’s Democratic primary with nearly 60 percent of the vote, beating a former judge and four-term state legislator.
Now it comes to pass that Greene faces obscenity charges based on allegations that he showed a young girl pornography on his library computer screen and made lewd comments to her. There are is also some uncertainty about the circumstances surrounding his departure from the military, the most compelling part of the 32-year-old’s resume. Dave Weigel calls Greene the “kind of opponent candidates dream about.”
The Democratic establishment in South Carolina should be getting used to losing to all comers. In 2008, their preferred candidate lost to Ron Paul Republican Bob Conley. Conley lost the general election but ended up holding Lindsey Graham to less than 60 percent of the vote. I wrote about Conley’s campaign for the main site.

The debacle of this president’s administration is both a cause and a symptom of the decline of American values. Unless Congress impeaches him, that decline will go on unchecked. An eminent jurist surveys the damage and assesses the chances for the recovery of our culture.
It won’t take long for conservatives to scratch this presidential wannabe off their 2008 scorecard.
The American Christmas, like the songs that celebrate it, makes room for everybody under the rainbow. Is that why so many people seem to be hostile to it?
Was the President done in by the economy, or by the politics of the economy?
