"I wasn’t surprised, but not really. I mean, just a little, but not much."

Largely overshadowed by the Republican gubanatorial primary (relevant portion starts at the 4:25 mark), last night South Carolina Democrats chose a nominee to face incumbent Republican Senator Jim DeMint in November. On the ballot were former judge and state legislator Vic Rawl of Charleston and a 32-year-old unemployed black Army veteran named Alvin Greene. Mr. Greene first attempted to pay his filing fee by personal check, had no campaign funds, no signs, no website, never attended a South Carolina Democratic party meeting, never held a public event, never met his opponent, and has repeatedly been described as somewhat incoherent. Mr. Greene also just beat his opponent by a whopping 16-point margin to become Jim DeMint's dream opponent.
