In this somewhat sad story from The Associated Press, South Carolina SURPRISE! Senate Candidate Alvin Greene has finally started turning down, avoiding and skipping out on press interviews.
Two weeks ago, Greene asked the same AP reporter he'd welcomed into his home to leave, saying he was "a busy man" and repeating "Go! Go! Go! Go!" while avoiding eye contact. A phone call to arrange an interview later that day was met with a gruff request to return a week later at 1:30. When the appointment arrived, Greene wasn't there. Greene answered another request for a long interview Monday by telling the reporter to call back in a couple of weeks.
Despite this, the AP still managed to put together a somewhat downer of a story about a quiet, unassuming guy with some family tragedy who managed to luck is way into the Democratic nomination for a seat he is destined to lose by an incredibly large margin to Republican incumbent Jim DeMint.
