    This shits just too funny for words. An illiterate black candidate for senate winning the democratic primary and believed to be a republican plant.

    Is he actually illiterate? I thought he was a veteran.
    But how he managed to swing the filing fee is interesting.

    The guy that started let it die when he couldn't get past the idea that it made Republicans look smart by sticking the dumbest guy in America in the primary, then let him sit around, not spend a dime, not do any campaigning, and not have a web site, and he still beat their guy by 30,00 votes. Democrats are going to crushed in November if this is the best they can do against plants like this.

    The GOP plant idea is only a theory. But I am sure the Democrats will investigate where he got the $10,000 filing fee. I still don't understand how the SC Dems could miss this whole mess. I bet they are steaming and they should be embarassed.

    Alvin still has a good shot at winning the Senate seat. It has good pay $174,000/yr and legendary benefits, so IMHO he won one election because he was a minority, and has just as good a shot at winning the senate seat. No one will get him to drop out. The upside is simply too good to be true. He's actually just as qualified as the other senators. The debates should be televised. I'd love to see him debate the issues.

    Not really... It just seems like nobody gives a damn. Even the "real" democratic candidate didn't bother campaigning at all either. It doesn't really make any sense to spend any money or energy on it, because DeMint is virtually undefeatable.
