‘It’s Not a Joke’

July 7, 2010

Surprise candidate Alvin Greene turns out to be more straightforward with his policies than many other candidates for higher political offices. Apart from Nancy “Unemployment Checks Are The Best Jobs Initiative” Pelosi, there are few pols who state their trust in Keynesian economics as bluntly as the Democratic candidate for Congress in South Carolina:

“Another thing we can do for jobs is make toys of me, especially for the holidays. Little dolls. Me. Like maybe little action dolls. Me in an army uniform, air force uniform, and me in my suit. They can make toys of me and my vehicle, especially for the holidays and Christmas for the kids. That’s something that would create jobs. So you see I think out of the box like that. It’s not something a typical person would bring up. That’s something that could happen, that makes sense. It’s not a joke.”

Note the unveiled narcissism. He’s clearly inspired by Barack Obama. Although the similarities are few. From the article:

Back at Greene HQ I ask him whether he sees his election victory as a blow struck for South Carolina’s black and under-represented voters. “Yes, that’s part of it. Regular voters identify with me, the ordinary folks, the people who work every day, the everyday average typical person identifies with me more than any of my opponents, the leadership, the people behind the desk.”

The French Cowboy thinks that Monsieur Greene is unfortunate to run as a Democrat. Democrats just don’t like “ordinary guy” people in political offices. They want elitists, people with an Ivy League degree who eat arugula and do wind surfing. For the Democrats, persons like Monsieur Greene are to be patronised, they’re not supposed to run for office, let alone win.

But who knows, if Greene begins to walk around with his chin held high and if a couple of close friends of his turn out to be America haters, Democrats might rally behind him in masses. And if Greene can hire the 16-year old kid who writes Obama’s vapid and silly speeches to pen a few for him as well, the French Cowboy sees stores packed with Alvin Greene action figures in the very near future.
