Can “Elephant Dung” Save America?

By John W. Lillpop

Pity poor, bedazzled “leaders” of the Democrat party in South Carolina!

As a result of a free and open election on June 8, the Democrat nominee for the U.S. Senate is an unemployed felony suspect with none of the attributes typically found in a candidate seeking membership in the world's most deliberative body.

Alvin Greene is the winner’s name and upsetting the Democrat apple cart appears to be his game.

Greene’s victory has been such a huge embarrassment to South Carolina Democrats that party leaders have resorted to tactics employed (without success) by Barack Obama every time something untoward happens: Blame Republicans!

And that is exactly what South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn is trying to do, as reported, in part, at reference 1:

“Columbia, SC (WLTX) - South Carolina Congressman Jim Clyburn says something is seriously wrong with Alvin Greene's win in the Democratic Senate Primary race, and he believes outside forces may be to blame.

“Sunday, Clyburn (D-6th District) told CNN he noticed problems in his own primary contest against Gregory Brown. Clyburn easily bested his opponent, garnering 90 percent of the vote.

"I know a Democratic pattern, I know a Republican pattern, and I saw in the Democratic primary elephant dung all over the place," Clyburn said.”

For the politically isolated, “elephant dung” is Clyburn’s inelegant way of blaming the Republican Party for the incompetence of the Democrat Party.

Rather than blaming innocent Republicans, Representative Clyburn, the more urgent priority for you and other prominent Democrats should be to explain why your party was unable to advance a reasonable and viable candidate?

Or is an unemployed felony suspect the best that the Democrat Party can offer?

Alvin Greene’s victory sparks the following question in advance of the November elections:

Can Elephant Dung save America?

If so, bring it on!
