This is what happens when you don't bother to rig the election

Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed military veteran who lives with his parents, defeated Vic Rawl on Tuesday for the Democratic Senate nomination despite having run essentially no public campaignno events, no signs, no debates, no website, no fundraising.

The result has baffled political observers, who had heavily favored Rawl — a former state legislator, attorney and prosecutor who had the edge inasmuch as he actually campaigned and tried to win.

Thank you for this one, Powell, I needed to ROFL for a while. I'm still giggling (except they're, like, low-pitched man-giggles). The part about some crafty GOP operative busting his guts busted my guts. And the speculation that he won because "his name came first on the ballot"! LOL. "Poor stupid South Carolina and its zombie voters" will be the MSM spin, but to me it looks like they may be on to something. They maybe are like decades ahead of their time. Perhaps they were all listening to DYI last week and have been infected with Ernest's overwhelming confidence in the value of his vote. Although in a two horse race like that, Ernest would probably have gone for the third.
