By June 2010, the world was mostly done talking about Gov. Mark Sanford's aborted hike of the Appalachian Trail. Fortunately for the rest of the country, South Carolina had a new buffoon to keep everyone entertained: Alvin Greene. While state Democrats are still scratching their heads over Greene's surprise victory, the rest of us have enjoyed the show. Greene's jobs plan? Creating Alvin Greene action figures. His campaign literature? A few conceptual pages from an Alvin Greene comic book. And now he's talking about running for president. Can a summer blockbuster be far behind?
