Bye Bye, Liddy: The End of an Era - Open Thread

From MSNBC Firstread:

*** End of another era? Down the ballot in North Carolina, the Democratic hit that Elizabeth Dole spent just 20 days in the Tar Heel State in 2005 and 13 days there in 2006 might very well have been the final nail in her coffin in her race against Dem challenger Kay Hagan. Could the end of the Bush era also bring us the end of the Dole era? There has been a Dole in the Senate for nearly 50 straight years -- and either a Bush or a Dole on the national ticket going back to '72. Will Liddy Dole's potential defeat signal the true end of the two most powerful Republican families of the last 50 years?

End of an error

Here's hoping.

Doubts about Dole?

I not only think so, I know

I not only think so, I know so. Hagan was a little away from meeting her 92K fundraising mark and demolished it and now has raised nearly 120K with a goal of getting 125K in 14 hrs.

And the winner is......not you

Has anyone seen Liz?

Good riddence

No one ever sees Dole around

No one ever sees Dole around here. I'm not particularly fond of Hagan but I certainly know who I'll support.

Her face changes so often

how would you know if you saw her? I know. I am such a bitch.

Since when is being honest

the same as being a bitch?

Nice to see you hanging around a little more often.

Vote Democratic! The ass you save may be your own.

Who? Her?

[edited] sorry, can't do it. she's got some issues with plastic surgery, but i can't post those pictures anymore. Let the MSM post her glamour shots.

"The striking difference between me and my opponent is that I live in North Carolina and my husband can vote for me."
- Sen. Kay Hagan

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

This reminds me of a Talking Heads Song

...changed my hairstyle, so many times now, I don't know what I look like

(Life in Wartime, I think.)

Guess what. I don't care.

If "they" call me a bitch, I feel like I must be doing something right. My daughter is proudly wearing an "Army Wives for Obama" shirt in a military area. We are all crazy.

Lovex7

You've got it right, Love.

Not that you're crazy! If "they" all you a bitch, you're on the right track. Wear it proudly and with honor.

Hey Love and all you wonderful women

good to see everyone out and about. Love, I'll bet #13 is busy these days, have you heard how things are going?

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

Progressive Discussions

Yeah, I bet he is.

Tell him the BlueNC women have lots of virtual pie and support for him.

Speaking of #13, He's showing up on the radar in presidential

politics in a wierd way - here's a link to Binker.

It seems he and Sarah Palin have been on opposite sides on a scientific argument about polar bears. Not that you should find that at all surprising. But there you have it.

He is not a Palin fan,

and it goes back a while. It's all about the polar bear. I heard a woman on NPR say that she had nothing against her. She didn't think she was qualified for VP, but she would buy Avon from her.

Lovex7

That is so sad, really.

People talk about intellectual elitism as if it's a bad thing. I don't know about you - but I want the smartest people in the room running the country. I don't want the Avon lady running the country. I want her selling Avon. That's a fine thing to do. But let's get the smart people, like our favorite Congressman, running the country.

I hope your taking what she said the wrong way.

I'm praying the woman meant, she's unqualified, I'm not voting for her, nothing personal....I'd buy Avon from her.

That's what she meant.

She talked before she said that about why she thought Palin was not qualified. The moderator said it sounded as if she didn't like her. She said she liked her fine and she would buy Avon from her, but she wouldn't vote for her.

Burr votes yes, Liddy ...

votes no on the Senate bailout/rescue bill. Any chance this vote won't make it into one of her commercials? How she's "saving the taxpayers money"?
