Kidding, kidding …

The curious case of Alvin Greene is the latest in a series of bizarre political dramas to rock South Carolina in recent weeks, with Palmetto State Democrats demanding an investigation into how an alleged “plant” wound up at the top of their party’s ticket.

Greene – an unemployed, unknown military veteran – didn’t hold any campaign events, raise money or launch a website, but he somehow defeated a former four-term state lawmaker in the Democratic primary for the U.S. Senate. And when we say “somehow,” we mean that his name appeared first on the ballot in an election that nobody – especially the S.C. Democratic Party – was paying any attention to whatsoever.

The result has been another embarrassment for the Palmetto state as Greene has bumbled, stumbled and fumbled his way through several national TV interviews, giving obviously rehearsed responses.

On top of that, the day after Greene won the Democratic nomination it was revealed that he had a felony charge pending against him for allegedly showing internet pornography to a college student at the University of South Carolina. That prompted Democratic Party Chairwoman Carol Fowler and numerous other politicians to call for Greene to step down.  It also prompted S.C. Rep. Jim Clyburn to accuse Greene of being “somebody’s plant,” and to call for an investigation into who gave Greene the $10,000 needed to file his paperwork with the S.C. Democratic Party.

Obviously, the Democratic nominee in this particular race is irrelevant, as incumbent U.S. Sen. Jim DeMint enjoys a massive war chest and sky-high approval ratings in a solidly Republican state – which means he is going to crush whoever the Democrats put up.

In this interview with FOX, Greene says he saved up the money for the filing fee himself over a two-year period …

And here’s another interview in which he says basically the same things …

And here’s a hilarious interview with Keith Olbermann of MSNBC in which he’s clearly getting the answers fed to him …

Obviously, the understatement of the year is that “something is up” here.

But what is it, exactly?

Is Greene really a Republican plant?  Or is he part of an experiment (a remarkably successful one, we might add) to show the world just how stupid we really are in South Carolina?

All we can say is “Bravo” to whoever is pulling this stunt off …

UPDATE: It should also be noted that if Greene is ultimately discovered to be a plant, it would make him not unlike DeMint’s “GOP” primary  opponent, a dyed-in-the-wool Democrat who was writing letters to the editor on Barack Obama’s behalf in 2008 …
