But sometimes conspiracies get pulled off. At least for a while. That doesn't mean that big conspiracies can ultimately be kept secret forever, but sometimes they can be kept quiet long enough for the dirty deed to get done.
And this is what I fear has happened in South Carolina.
Last Tuesday Alvin Greene won the South Carolina democratic nomination for senate.
- Mr. Greene is unemployed, but managed to come up with the $10,400 South Carolina filing fee.
- Mr. Greene currently being prosecuted for a felony obscenity charge.
- Mr. Greene did no campaigning. None.
- Mr. Greene got no press coverage before winning. None.
- Mr. Greene raised no money. None.
- Mr. Greene had no campaign staff or workers. None.
- Mr. Greene has a hard time completing sentences.
- Mr. Greene is a black man in a state that, lets just say, isn't the most racially open minded state in the country.
- Mr. Greene got 60% of the democratic primary vote, *whipping* the leading candidate, a well known former judge and state legislator.
If you think this adds up, I have some BP shares I'd like to sell you.
