I think that he is… this guy who decided one day to run for Senator of South Carolina, put up a large sum of money that you or I wouldn’t put up just to be the sacrificial lamb that is the Democratic nomination for Senator of South Carolina, and then managed to win the nomination because, freakishly, he was the first name on the ballot. And now the Democrats are freaking because, well, this is kind of embarrassing.
Honestly, if it weren’t for the felony charge this would almost be a great story about the charming quirks of the American political system.
PS: I was considering being amenable to the suggestion that a mulligan might be in order… until I remembered: “Hey! Didn’t we have to keep Mark Foley on the ballot and keep Shelley Sekula-Gibbs off of it because of primary results? Ain’t karma something, particularly when it has a chance to build up a charge?”
