It looks like a Greene and kooky mid-term race

This is shaping up to be one of the nuttiest mid-term elections on record. Here in Texas you have Republicans possibly funding the Green Party. In Nevada, even a lot of Democrats would love to have just about anyone but Harry Reid back in the Senate, with the possible exception of that anyone being GOP candidate Sharron Angle. Reid and Angle are currently squabbling over the Senate Majority Leader’s campaign using snippets from previous Angle Web sites when she was going more toward the “Tea Party Look.” Hey, that Prohibition thing worked well didn’t it Sharron, and you think we should try it again along with continuing to criminalize pot?

Best of all in the race for the kookiest candidate contest has got to be Al Greene. No, not the smooth-voiced purveyor of soul and R & B, the Rev. Al Green, who gave us classics such as “Take Me to the River” and “Love and Happiness.”

Take me to the river, Alvin Green, and drown me please!

No, instead, we’re talking Alvin Green, the 32-year-old unemployed veteran who came out of nowhere to win the South Carolina Democratic primary election for the U.S. Senate. Some Democrats have suspected that Green was a plant by GOP for some odious reason or the other. That would be intriguing enough, given Green’s persona is one of having been put into his present situation as some kind of Dave Chappelle character. But the topper is that Green believes he can make jobs for those in South Carolina who go work making Alvin Green, the action figure. You heard me. Action Figure Alvin Green, come to save the day in South Carolina!

I can just see those percentages of the unemployed falling like a Rocky Mountain avalanche. And only an hour ago I was wondering what the hell was there to write about.
