"...especially with an election this close."
It would matter even more if the Democrats had run a Democrat.
Odds are really good that it's Cali-Mex, not Tex-Mex, and that's why you all hate on it.
I would too. I don't like Cali-Mex.
I think all candidates should be polling at a reasonable level to participate in the debates. The presidential standards of 10% seem reasonable. South Carolina has pretty much become a one party state, so I don't really care about party labels, and it's very unusual for a democrat to be contending for this seat, but I don't care if she was a republican or independent. So far there has been no discussion of green issues by the green party, just a lot of hostility directed towards those who have a different assessment, and very negative things to say about democrats in general. My past experinece with the Green Party was being approached by an out of state college student who was a republican soliciting signatures to get Ralph Nadar on the ballot in 2000. I was sympathetic to the Green Party and signed the partition, but later regretted it as it ended up costing Gore the election in 2000. So while I sometimes support third party causes, I don't like it when they cost the person I voted for to lose, so would only vote for third party if there was no chance of it swinging the election towards the least desirable candidate. But I don't expect third party candidates not to run or drop out of the election. I just think the 10% threshold prevents the debates from becoming a distraction from the candidates that are relevant to the voters, as the other two parties have to go through their own primaries.
Maybe we went on a bad night but the Calamari, fish fry and the basil linguine were all flavorless. I've had better pasta from a box! On the other hand I've had a great brunch experience, so who knows.
I neglected to Google, and do a word search before posting-
But certainly there is a provision in the Voting Rights Act of '65 for our Aged?
(I forget things so easily now).
Bad all the way around.
Should have kpet it as a Hot Dog place. Their "mexican" food is very forgettable.
Mr. Catastrophe's impressions of the Green Party are misinformed. A little research would have shown that Greens are very active at local and state levels, participating in local and state elections, and winning some races. We're more active and well organized in some states than others, which is no surprise for a small but growing party.
We've had (and still have) mayors, including Gayle McLaughlin, Green mayor of Richmond, a city near San Francisco, and council members in cities and towns across the US. The Green Party would like to run a lot more state and local candidates and is always encouraging people to run as Greens. The party offers in-person and online workshops on running campaigns.
One hundred years ago, the Socialist Party ran state and local candidates, and also ran Eugene Debs and other nominees for president. The Socialist Party had it easier in many states, because Democrats and Republicans had not yet enacted ballot access rules designed to obstruct other parties' candidates. Indiana, for example, had a strong Socialist Party until such rules were enacted. In some states, running a presidential candidate is a requirement for achieving ballot access.
Green candidates at every level are right to object when they're barred from debates and forums. Such exclusion is also a violation of the right of voters to know about all the names on the ballot on election day.

Full disclosure: I work as Media Coordinator for the Green Party.
This was all Jenny’s Sanford's fault, she let herself “go” and forced Mark to outsource their martial relations to Argentina. Now Jenny is one of the “takers” that Mitt warned us about with her excessive alimony and so called “child support” demands! Typical lazy and unmotivated US worker that Mark so often talks about! Besides, Gov Nikki Haley supports Mark Sanford - Adulterers are US! or is it "Birds of a feather?"
Mark only used our Tax Dollars because he could get some hot Argentina poontang, and any red blooded family values guy can understand that, I understand why his hysterical and emotional opponent does not.
Further, his son put Mark in a bad situation (and should apologize to SC Voters) by wanting to leave the Superbowl party. What was Mark to do – the only place this new technology called “Television” is available is in downtown Charleston and Jenny’s house.
Mr Platt certainly won't be receiving any hate mail from me. I don't vote along party lines either. I just think vetting candidates and weighing out the consiquences of voting third party is part of the democratic process, especially with an election this close.
Hahahaha! On pointe!
For the record: Beach Company tools Elliot Summey, Vic Rawl, and Teddy Pryor were for the TIF / taxpayer funded handout before they were against it.
great but when will the city actually open the bridge??
If you decide to run for public office don't be so offended when voters have questions and raise issues when responding to your own news article. From this article and the responses I can only conclude that this is an anti establishment campaign which does nothing to promote green policy. There was another candidate John Steinberger who ran against Bobby Harrell. That shows how in touch you are with reality. If someone wants to throw their vote away on a third party candidate I can think of better choices than the local green party who don't even care about green issues.
Ted Cruz was not born in the USA and he was educated by a liberal elite institution. So, it will be nothing less than amazing watching Republicans rally behind him.
Ha! I think a mockery SHOULD be made of this election and every race where hypocrite, knuckle-dragging, republican, "family value", Jeeezus-loving, gun-toting, confederate flag-waving, "small government" (unless of course, you want an abortion or gay marriage...), redneck candidates are running.
Flynt is perfect for Sanford...I think the ad should have run, especially if the ad had no nudity or profanity in it. In a state where elected officials have called the president a liar in the middle of a speech in front of hundreds of millions of viewers around the world and officials that have made public statements comparing poor kids who get free lunch to "animals" (that if you feed them they will never go away- because what conservative wants poor, mostly minority kids to get an education anyway?...), I find it hard to believe that somehow an ad "mocking" our ridiculous state politics is compromising the apparently non-existent "standards" of SC voters. The fact that any of these republicans in charge actually hold an office speaks to the absence of standards that SC voters have applied to candidates and is the reason why SC has been fighting Mississippi for BOTTOM since reconstruction.
Sanford will probably win. And voters of SC will continue their role as a prolific well-spring for late night monologues. It seems appropriate thatHustler magazine would be in on it somehow.
I was just pointing out why the Green Party didn't have the 10% polling requirement for the debate. From the responses here I can only conclude that some of the local Green Party does indeed have hostility issues and resort to personal attacks with anyone they don't agree with or understand.
"Mangold challenges the typical connotations of what a painting is or could be"
This is why people think artists are annoying. What do those words even mean?
Bye-Bye TIF. Thanks to Colin Cuskley of Johns Island Conservancy for his strong presentation.
