A vote for Alvin Greene
Alvin Greene, the Democratic Party nominee for the U.S. Senate from the great state of South Carolina, still confounds the people he hopes to represent -- and the rest of us. And today's story by the Post's Wil Haygood is a terrific look at the people who helped create (whether they want to admit it or not) this "Puzzle in the Palmetto State."
My favorite quote came from Ronnie Morris, 62, who explained how he came to vote for the unemployed candidate who lives with his father and has been slapped with a felony obscenity charge.
"Here's how it happened, I'll be honest," he begins, eyeing his hamburger at the restaurant in a Piggly Wiggly grocery. "In between work and lunch, I went to vote. His name was at the top of the ballot. And I just voted for him. Didn't find out anything about him until I saw him on the news for that sex investigation and I said: 'Lord have mercy. I voted for this dude!'
Left unsaid was whether Morris plans on making the same mistake again in November.
