We’re making one heck of an international impression

It’s just not the sort a sane person would want to make.

As I was getting out of a vehicle to walk to the State House right after lunch today, I got a call on the Blackberry from Paris. Caller ID said the number was … well, there were 11 digits. To summarize the phone call, I quote from the e-mail I found when I got back to the office:

Good Morning M. Warthen,

I am a french journalist, working for a french national private media
called Radio Classique.
I am working today on a story about Alvin Greene and the democrat
It would be very interesting for me to talk to you about that and may be
doing a short interview by phone.
Is it possible ?
It would be great.
May be within two hours or tomorrow morning your time ?

It would be great and very interesting.

thank you very much.

Best regards.

I asked if he also wanted to talk about all the Nikki Haley stuff. He didn’t know about any of that. Just as well.

Just what South Carolina needs.

Anyway, we’re going to do the interview tomorrow morning — afternoon, his time, morning our time. I’m going to let him call me again, rather than vice versa, I assure you.

    “somehow unsatisfied with quotes from non-print interviewees” or “*the* quotes” from n-p interviewees?

    Why don’t you do an interview with Mr. Greene? If he likes Starbucks coffee maybe he would make a fine senator.

    Brad, remember “Being There”?
    Alvin Greene is S.C.’s life imitating art – Chauncey Gardiner.

    I am pleased by his success and have serious doubts about the felony case against him, so far.

    Moreover, the timing of the upset could not be better. The Democrat machine is revealed for what it has actually become, a lawyer-dominated, form-over-substance cabal. Good luck to Vincent.
