We've Seen a Movie Like this Before...Haven't We?

A scam 'politician' comes from out of nowhere. Campaigns very little. Has a well funded opponent. And wins?

Just an improbable story?

"Vic Rawl, the South Carolina Senate candidate who was stunningly upset by the widely unknown Alvin Greene in last week's Democratic primary, will announce Monday morning whether he will file an official protest with the party over the outcome..."

"Greene, a 32-year-old unemployed political novice who did little campaigning, handily defeated Rawl, 59 percent to 41 percent, perplexing party observers and triggering Rep. James Clyburn to muse that the obscure victor could be a Republican plant."

Or is life imitating art?

Have to confess, I was a little taken aback myself!
