Hard to argue

Generally speaking, Ann Coulter isn't one of my favorites, but I thought these two observations were spot-on. She's writing about the topic of Alvin Greene, the out-of-nowhere (in more ways than one) candidate who is now the Democratic standard-bearer in the South Carolina senate race. First she takes a well-deserved shot at the egregious David Axelrod, who recently gave the commencement address at my alma mater:

Obama senior adviser David Axelrod said Greene was not a "legitimate" candidate and called his victory "a mysterious deal." (Yes, how could a young African-American man with strange origins, suspicious funding, shady associations, no experience, no qualifications, and no demonstrable work history come out of nowhere and win an election?)

And this:

They're hopping mad, these liberals, but it's not clear what their theory of the crime is. Before accusing Republicans of committing a dirty trick, apparently no one asked the question: "OK, but what was the trick?"

The key to Greene's victory, you see, is that he got more votes. How do liberals imagine Republicans pulled that off? Mesmerize the Democrats into voting for an idiot? If they could do that, John McCain would be president.

More, including a useful history lesson from 1998, at the link.

there are only two reasonable explanations:

somebody was attempting to hack the voting computers, and used this race as a trial run where it didnt really much matter and wouldnt draw much attention.

SC democats are heavily black. 'Greene' is a traditionally common black spelling of that name. they just voted for the brother. its done all the time.

i'm actually gonna wager it was a combination of the two forces. the attempt to steal votes was only supposed to pad the count, but the brother reflex was stronger than expected.

now that the democrat party has certified results that make little sense, i'm even more suspicious that it was a dem attempt to hack the system, and now they need to quash the inquiry before it gets that far.
