The Greene Party

An Investors Business Daily Editorial

The Democratic Senate candidate from South Carolina is not a GOP dirty trick but an appropriate representative of a party detached from reality. An incoherent and off-the-wall empty suit, he is a perfect fit.

Late Thursday night, the South Carolina Democratic Party's Executive Committee rejected a protest of the June 8 primary for U.S. Senate, in which Alvin Greene, who has a felony arrest for showing porn to college girls, defeated Vic Rawl, a former state representative and judge.

Greene has been declared the party's legitimate nominee, much to the chagrin of MSNBC's Chris Matthews, whose leg no longer tingles when President Obama speaks, and others.

Matthews asked guests: "Do you think this has the look of a dirty trick — sort of a Watergate number?"

After all, how could a Democratic electorate that put a community organizer in the White House make such a mistake?

Perhaps the best thing that can be said about Alvin Greene, who came out of nowhere to become the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate against incumbent Jim DeMint, just like Barack Obama came out of nowhere to become president, is that Greene almost makes guys like Alan Grayson and Eric Massa look normal and sane.

The Democratic Party is said to be a big tent but a circus tent is more likely.

Case in point — Eric Massa, the New York Democrat who took a wide stance on many issues, known for his alleged policy briefing from White House Chief of Staff Rahm Emanuel in the congressional showers before he, uh, threw in the towel.

Tickle party, anyone?

Then there's Florida's Alan Grayson, the mouth that roared, who produced a chart on the House floor that said the Republican health care plan was for everyone to die quickly as he supported a bill that makes rationing an inevitability. Or there is North Carolina's Bob Etheridge, who roughs up college reporters, while complaining the Tea Party is an angry mob.

The question is not whether Alvin Greene is qualified. The question is compared to whom?

Roland Burris? Do we compare him to the ethically challenged Charlie Rangel who helps writes the nation's tax laws as he plays fast and loose with his own obligations and the law?

Or perhaps we can compare him with Barney Frank who said Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were financially sound right up to the moment he started to blame Republicans and President George W. Bush for the market collapse.

Alvin Greene has no visible means of support and few prospects, sort of like the America the Democrats want to create for all of us. No one knows where Greene got the $10,000 to file.

Well, no one knows where the Democrats will find the funds to unburden our grandchildren whose inheritance they have already spent.

The Democrats are led by House Speaker Nancy Pelosi who said of health care reform that we'd have to pass the bill to see what was in it.

Sounds like something Alvin Greene might say. We doubt if he'd read any bill he voted on either. He might even agree with Joe Biden that we have to spend our way out of bankruptcy.

Do you think Alvin Greene would support a failed stimulus that adds to the deficit as the unemployment rate rises?

Would he put forth a cap-and-tax climate bill that threatens to drain whatever life remains in the economy?

Would his answer to the Gulf oil spill be to dispatch an army of lawyers to find out who to sue and arrest while the oil continues to gush?

Democrats look with feigned embarrassment at how such a sad joke could become their candidate for the U.S. Senate. They should consider the ranks he would be joining.

A Special Notice to Our Readers Regarding Alleged Threats to Obama Fellow Travelers

Personally Opposed, But ...

In recent days we have posted stories about alleged threats of violence to socialists supporting Obama's Marxist agenda. We believe that most, if not all these stories are fabricated by the left, as some have already proven to be.

Whether such stories are true or not, we we want to assure you, our readers, that we are personally opposed to all violence against those who subvert the United States Constitution and undermine our country. However, we believe such violence toward that lot is a personal choice, and we will not attempt to impose our views on others.

15th House Democrat Announces Retirement Amid Allegations He Sexually Harrassed a Male Staffer

One term New York Congressman Eric Massa

The party of sodomy, socialism, abortion and war now has 15 Congressmen who have announced they will leave voluntarily, before "we the people" impose term limits.

Rep. Eric Massa (D-N.Y.) will not seek reelection — after only one term in office. He is abandoning New York's most Republican seat.

According to several House aides on both sides of the aisle, the House ethics committee has been informed of allegations that Massa, who is married with two children, sexually harassed a male staffer.
