Alvin Greene may not win the South Carolina Senate seat he seeks, but he will provide political news junkies with great anecdotes until he loses in November.
Everyone knows Greene. He's the guy who snagged the Democratic nomination in a race that defied logic and reason. He then got indicted on accusations he showed porn to a college student.
And then, in what would be a rare occurrence for someone with political savvy, Greene gets himself and a companion kicked out of a Seneca restaurant.
If I were Greene's Republican opponent, I'd be raising campaign cash like crazy and stocking most of it in the bank to use sometime down the road when I might face a real candidate. Sure, I'd run some TV ads, get my name out there and hit the campaign trail every day, but I sure wouldn't spend as much money as I would against the guy who lost to Greene in the primary.
I mean, he got himself booted out of a restaurant? Stuff like this isn't a political windfall. The whole atmosphere has crashed to the earth in a fiery cataclysm when it comes to Greene's campaign.
