Greene Jobs and Other Lunatic "Ideas"

Abby Zimet

Another remarkable encounter
with surprise South Carolina Senate candidate Alvin Greene. He
discusses Obama as inspiration - "There's something that, you know, I
knew so I just knew that. It was in my mind, I knew that, that, that,
that the voters really, they really, that they really, erm, followed the
candidate...." - and his ideas for creating jobs.

"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."
