Alvin Greene

In recent months readers have occasionally sent me items about Alvin Greene, the unemployed black man who without any campaigning won the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate in South Carolina. But I hadn’t actually looked him up until now. Here is a video of Greene being interviewed by Lawrence O’Donnell. Greene answers almost every question with, “DeMint started the recession.” He says, “I’m the best candidate that defines where we at in this country.”

O’Donnell is, of course, in a state of perpetual fury at conservatives and America. After listening for five minutes to this man who obviously has an IQ no higher than 75, he declares with a smile that Greene would be a better senator than DeMint. Anything to épater les conservateurs.

I get annoyed by commenters on other sites who insist that Obama is stupid, the dumbest president we’ve ever had, a dithering idiot when he’s not reading from his teleprompter, etc. No one who watched Obama in the primary debates, or saw him answer questions from a roomfull of Republican representatives at a healthcare conference in January 2009 should harbor illusions that the president is stupid. Dishonest, unqualified, and ideologically rigid—true. But not stupid.

To see stupid, watch Alvin Greene.

Is this a joke? Watching this fellow in action is really painful. I thought Christine O’Donnell in Delaware was bad but this takes the cake. How did such a fellow win the primary? No one knew who he was, much less, that he was black.

LA replies:

I agree. It’s disturbing. I don’t find it funny or entertaining at all.
