A lesser political figure might decide that it's time to throw in the campaign towel after "indicted on a felony obscenity charge for showing pornography to a college student last November." But Alvin Greene — South Carolina Democrats' inspired choice of senatorial candidates — is no lesser political figure. He's a lesser political genius!
He deeply understands, in the pit of his soul, that most basic of basic truths about politics: When life hands you lemons, howl "Noooooooooooo!!!" at the top of your lungs until the lemons get back in their news truck and leave you alone…
"Noooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo!!!!" — Darth Vader (and also Alvin Greene)
It's not quite as eloquent as Abraham Lincoln's "better angels of our nature" or John Kennedy's "Ask not what your country can do for you," but it's considerably louder.
