South Carolina's came-out-of-nowhere Democratic Senate nominee, Alvin Greene, surfaced this week wearing a T-shirt with a message with which even those who don't take him seriously can agree. It says simply: "South Carolina . . . We Don't Make These Things Up."

Greene sported the T-shirt this week at a Rotary Club event in Aiken, S.C., according to the Associated Press.

The T-shirt was designed by Rotary Club President Owen Clary, who was inspired not only by Greene's improbable candidacy, but by Gov. Mark Sanford's disappearance to visit an Argentine woman with whom he was having an affair, and the notoriety gained by Republican Rep. Joe Wilson who yelled "You lie!" at President Obama during an address to Congress last year on health care reform.

Clary had been sending the shirts out to South Carolina politicians, and Greene repaid the favor by sending him a "Greene Senate" shirt. Clary then invited Greene to Aiken, where each wore the other's creation.

Our New Approach to Comments

In an effort to encourage the same level of civil dialogue among Politics Daily’s readers that we expect of our writers – a “civilogue,” to use the term coined by PD’s Jeffrey Weiss – we are requiring commenters to use their AOL or AIM screen names to submit a comment, and we are reading all comments before publishing them. Personal attacks (on writers, other readers, Nancy Pelosi, George W. Bush, or anyone at all) and comments that are not productive additions to the conversation will not be published, period, to make room for a discussion among those with ideas to kick around. Please read our Help and Feedback section for more info.
