Attention Vernon Robinson: the internet never forgets (and I'm not crazy).

I saw this article in the Winston-Salem Journal today and quickly realized I was involved in the story. I find it very funny to see a Republican foe of Vernon Robinson using an old BlueNC post of mine to attack him. Vernon Robinson is currently running in the Republican primary for the 8th District congressional seat, the 3rd congressional seat he's been a candidate for.

Vernon Robinson is an Obama fan?

ok guys, I kept this a secret for a long time because I thought it might hurt the Obama campaign, but I feel like I can come out with it now it seems Obama has the nomination locked...
Vernon Robinson did door-to-door canvassing for Obama!
If you don't know who vernon Robinson is, he's about the nastiest politician you can imagine. There are plenty of stories about him on BlueNC, including one by Betsy.
Anyway, on to my "revelation".

Disgusting NCGOP ad

While the Primary race between Clinton and Obama has gotten pretty vicious lately, I was always convinced it's nothing compared to the stuff Republicans would be spewing around the general election. Turns out I didn't have to wait that long, thanks to the NC GOP and their head witch, Linda Daves.
Even John McCain and the Republican National Congress declared today how deplorable the latest stunt of the NC repugs is.

Obama already won against McCain

By proxy that is.

Democrat Bill Foster, endorsed by Barack Obama, has snatched former House Speaker Dennis Hastert's congressional seat in a closely watched special election in Illinois that gave the longtime Republican district to the Democrats. Foster has won 52 percent of the vote compared to 48 percent for Republican Jim Oberweis.

That result was amazing given the 14th District's clear Republican lean.

Canvassing in a winter wonderland!

I returned on Tuesday from Ohio, where I volunteered for Sen. Obama's campaign in the frozen city of Cleveland. Hundreds of volunteers from all over the country descended upon the state to help out the Obama campaign.
What follows is the story of my journey in a winter wonderland.

Getting to Cleveland was no small feat. As the person who I stayed with told me, "February is the worst month to come to Ohio". I wish they had told me sooner.

The Clinton's are funny?

As you might know, I'm an Obama fan.
However, I'm not one of those people who support Obama because they think Hillary is just a "B***".
I respect her, but I think Obama is by far the better candidate.

That being said I wanted to share some humor out of the Clinton campaign with you all. The problem is that none of this was meant to be funny.

My trip to Chicago; adventures in Obamaland.

This past weekend I flew to Chicago to help a Belgian TV News crew make a report on the Barack Obama campaign. As you might know, Chicago is Obama's hometown and it's here that his political campaign started.
We visited the National Obama Volunteer headquarters and went to the communities where Obama was a community organizer some 25 years ago.

When I landed, the contrast between Charlotte and Chicago couldn't have been any bigger. In Charlotte it had been a balmy 60 degrees, in Chicago it was 30 and there was at least 10 inches of snow on the ground. The skyscrapers were hidden in a dense, low hanging cloud cover and it gave the whole city a weird kind of atmosphere.
