NC GOP candidate for governor, Fred Smith, sent us a book. Right on the top is an endorsement from Rick Perry, Governor of Texas. And he's coming to the Oriental Shrine Club in Greensboro next Tuesday. Lee Greenwood's gonna sing that song. The thirty percenters will no doubt turn out in droves.
So scumbag here takes a swipe at the rest of us in the foreword by quoting Teddy GD Roosevelt:
The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."
Jeepers, dude. Excuse the hell out of me for standing in your way. Why don't we just acclaim you King of NC right now, you pompous pile of pig poop? I've heard of blaming the victim, but actually calling us "cold and timid souls" is so over the line. I'm certainly no Biblical scholar, but I seem to remember Jesus being awfully fond of the meek.
Fred Smith's been watching John Adams and cheering for Alexander Hamilton
If you can get through this self-righteous balderdash, then maybe you should vote for him. All the book proves is he's a blogger. Big deal.
On joining the football team in high school:
I was not physically imposing. I just worked hard enough to become a player.
There's no sense wasting your affection on Fred Smith. He's fond enough of himself for everyone. After setting the woods on fire at Wake Forest Law School, he worked for the government as a JAG lawyer and ended up in a practice in Raleigh. He went at farming in a big way on the side and got killed by high interest rates and Carter's grain embargo to Russia.
He spends several pages blaming his Wife for going crazy and causing their divorce. Even cold and timid souls know it takes two to ruin a marriage. But don't worry about old Fred. He soon enough finds another warm place to put his pecker. Or you could look at it the way he does:
God's providence was working in our lives.
Don't blame God for your narcissistic machinations. Twice now, he's accused women of "completing him." As if. Buddy, there's not even enough room for you in you.
Although the law firm was going gangbusters, they got killed by real estate in '89. You do the math. He got cozy with the Raleigh banks during the workout. He credits an improving economy for their success. What about "a little extra effort"?
Fred Smith Company builds country clubs for his neighbors and apartments for the cash flow. You know about cash flow - that's what the poor folks provide.
We have W.'s fallacious hoakum to blame for Fred Smith's entry into politics. Idiot. Mr. Smith goes to Raleigh. Uh, he's been in Raleigh for years. He got to the senate by drowning the 12th District in BBQ plates - all bad.
The mean Democrats won't amend the Constitution to support his homophobic Defense of Marriage Act. He didn't like being a County Commissioner, couldn't get anywhere as Senator and now wants to be Governor. When he becomes disenchanted with that, maybe we can make him POTUS. Whatever it takes to make you happy. It's your world, Fred; we're just paying the bills.
Oh, he's got family pictures. Of course, none of them feature his first baby machine. I guess she never actually existed.
Fred Smith is an empty suit. He's a serial land rapist, slumlord and ultimate Raleigh insider. We need look no further than his first Wife for real insight to his character.
