#rsrh Schrodinger’s Greene (D CAND, SC-SEN)

(Via Hot Air Headlines) The Huffington Post is highly upset (but hiding it fairly well) that Sen John Cornyn of the NRSC is happily using the awkwardness that is the Alvin Greene candidacy for pushback against the Left’s peculiar notion that the Democratic party is somehow the mainstream one of the two in American politics.  Normally, I wouldn’t care overmuch for how much this upsets the HuffPo; but it’s funny to see a website so discombobulated that it can’t even keep track of its own argument.  To wit:

And yet, the unemployed veteran — who never did any formal campaigning — has been the most covered candidate of any running for office this cycle.


And to the extent that voters are not aware of how odd both he and his campaign truly are, the impression can be left that it is a high-profile Democrat (not some mysterious eccentric) whose skeletons are being dragged out of the closet.

Bolding mine, in both places.  It’s one or the other, HuffPo.  You can’t complain about Alvin Greene being the subject of massive media attention and then pretend that the voters aren’t then going to be aware of the… unique nature… of who Sen Cornyn’s talking about.  OK, fine, you can, but it just won’t work.

Unfair?  Since when did the Huffington Post care about fairness?  As I like to say: Karma.  It’s what’s for dinner.

    Actually, Moe, I’m sorta with the HP on this one. Even though Greene has been the “most covered candidate…this cycle,” that still doesn’t mean he’s a “high-profile Democrat” in the sense they’re using the phrase. They mean someone who’s a real figure in the state party, someone who would have been an instantly recognizable name for many South Carolinians even before the media attention. Like…ummm…well, okay, I guess there is none. 🙂 But I still think they can hold both positions consistently.
