Greene: I’m Not Going Away

Live5News: Greene Debuts Comic Book After Losing Election

Greene answered a few questions on the way into his party.

He said that Jim DeMint led the country into a recession and that all he could offer South Carolina was more gridlock politics.

“Like I said I’ve done all I can do,” Greene said Tuesday night. “I’ve told y’all stuff that made sense. You know where this recession came from, where this crisis came from; there was a clear choice here.”

Probably the most interesting thing that came out of Greene’s camp Tuesday night was his debut as a super hero in a comic book called “The Ultimate Warrior.”

The comic is centered around Greene saving families from foreclosure on their homes.

When asked if he planned on running again, Greene said “Maybe.”

This past weekend, on our way across the Isle of Palms connector while headed out to do some trick-or-treating, I spotted my first and only Alvin Greene sign. We were running late, so I couldn’t get a photo, but the hand-painted sign read as follows:

FARE AND BALANCED
VOTE ALVIN GREENE
FOR U.S. SINATE

Folks, you just can’t make this stuff up.

Even more amusing than Greene’s comic book or sign were the Election Day/Night tweets on Twitter by someone who holds themselves out as Alvin Greene. While I can’t possibly know whether it truly is Greene or not, given the rest of what he has had to say, I wouldn’t put it past him.

Decide for yourself … the real Alvin Greene?

    Be kind, Gail. Alvin Greene is one of God’s children, too.

    I don’t know enough about tweeting and twittering to tweet, but I do know how to spell. Before I would consider making a run for any public office, I believe that I would ensure that the spelling on my sign was correct.

    It’s only an opinion, but I’m inclined to think that Greene saw a black man in the White House (which is partly how I think Obama was elected) and figured that he could ride Obama’s coattail into the Senate. Greene should have realized, when he did not receive campaign money from George “Spooky Dude” Soros (–gotta love Glenn Beck for that one), ACORN (or whatever they are calling themselves today), SEIU, Sierra Club, The One himself, and/or a host of others, that he was not going to be sent to sit under The Dome as a senator from the Palmetto State. Perhaps everyone figured that Greene is better suited as the star in his own comic book. (He’d better learn to spell!)

    On the other hand, South Carolina voters sent Tim Scott, a (black) Republican backed by Sarah Palin, to Congress from the 1st District, where black voters are outnumbered by white (conservative) voters three to one. I don’t care if Scott is purple with pink polka dots, or even striped, as long as he’s conservative and honest!

    As for the governorship, Nikki Haley pulled through at the very last to beat Vincent Sheheen. As I followed the results, I thought she was going to lose the race (after Cyndi Mosteller stuck her nose into things). Mosteller chairs her county’s Republican Party but was trying to shed a bad light on fellow Republican Haley.

    When I went to bed last night at 3 a.m., my earlier adrenalin rush was so great after all the excitement that it was nearly 5 a.m. before sleep finally set in. The House Republican count was at 220 by then; Haley had won her election; Nathan Deal won over former Gov. Roy Barnes; and Jim Marshall (GA) lost his seat in the U.S. House to a Republican. Georgia is still burdened with four Representatives who are members of the Congressional Black Caucus.

    That’s okay, though. God has smiled upon us and blessed us with enough to allow us to sleep better at night.

    Both houses of Congress are such that the Republicans in the House now have a clear voice, and the Democrats in the Senate AND Obama will be “the Party of No!” Americans will be able to see for themselves what conservative Republicans have been trying to do all along.

    Perhaps this tidal shift to conservatism got the attention of Maine’s Senator Susan Collins, too! If not, we can take out the rest of the trash at the General Election, when she and others are up for reelection in 2012.

    Thank You, Lord! Thank You.

    Well, math doesn’t work in my head. Senate terms are six years. Collins was elected in 2008. She’s up in 2014. Where’s my coffee?

  3. Stupid is as stupid does says:

    This Greene dude is another Biden.
