Tim Dunn's Website is Up

Finally some action at the website of NC-8 congressional candidate Tim Dunn. And for all of the Larry Kissell, who is running against Dunn in the primaries, supporters we have out there, this is not an endorsement of Dunn. Kissell's website is here.

Also, Tim Dunn does not put any reference to being a Democrat on his website. Larry Kissell has a picture of a big donkey on his but never uses the word Democrat. 1/2 point for Kissell.



Tim Dunn's website does say he is a democrat !

Tim Dunn's website does say he is a democrat ! Here is an excerpt:

"fighting for change in the 8th district

Thank you for visiting the Dunn for Congress website. I am a Democrat running in North Carolina's 8th Congressional District and I am asking for your support."

Just wanted to set the record straight. Does that mean 1 point for Dunn ?


Point for adding it. Welcome to the party.

It's been the first bullet point on Kissell's bio as long as it's been up, but Targator just couldn't get past the big donkey on the front page! :P

Done with Dunn?

As a veteran and ex-Airborne kind of guy, my initial instincts were to like Dunn. But the more I learn, the less inclined I am to support him.

We need a new direction in Iraq. As an Iraqi war veteran, I support our troops on the ground 100% and I support a strategy to win. The men and women on the ground in Iraq want to win and Congress and the Administration owe it to them to openly and honestly explain how that is going to happen." (my emphasis)

Strategy to win? Just what the hell does that mean? Mr. Dunn? Care to explain?


PS And while you're explaining how to "win" this disastrous war, how about explaining your position on freedom of choice. I understand that you're pro-life personally, by how would you VOTE when push comes to shove?

Dunn has a Strategy to Win?

Let's see.

Bill O'Reilly: U.S. should leave Iraq "as fast as humanly possible"

William F. Buckley: "The American Objective In Iraq Has Failed"...

Pentagon: Iraqi troops downgraded - No Iraqi battalion capable of fighting without U.S. support

Dunn's "milestones" strategy means what exactly? Another half century in Iraq? Seriously. At least.

When the radical right wants to come home, why does Dunn still think we can win?

I know we're all friends here and love all our "Democratic" candidates, but come on. Enough already.

That's the same question I've wanted to ask...

I couldn't find on his web site where he mentioned being pro life. Politicians have to vote their conscience unless they know how their contituency would want them to vote. This one is a no-brainer. If Dunn gets elected it will be by Democrats and maybe a few Republicans crossing party lines. Without a doubt the majority of his constituency is pro-choice. I respect his personal beliefs, but I want to know how he would vote.

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

I so hate pro life and pro choice

I've recently had reason to reevaluate my feelingson abortions and they remain the same. I don't like it. I support it, but wouldn't it be great if we lived in a world where it wasn't necessary? Of course it would. Our goal as Democrats should be to decrease abortions to the point where the only procedures take place because of the life of the mother/rape/incest.

I'm pro-life. But, I'm also pro-choice. I think I'm a hell of a lot more pro-life than George Bush, who allows innocence to die in New Orleans. But, I'm also a hardline pro-choicer.

I guess my point is that these labels are figments of the Neocon imagination and using them only strengthens them.

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

I know exactly what you mean.

I hate falling into the semantic trap you've described . . . and I guess I do it mostly for expediency. But that doesn't make it any less offensive and counter-productive.

Pro-life. And pro-choice. That pretty much says it all.


That's why Kissell framing the issue around privacy as an aspect of "less government" is so refreshing and getting so much attention.

Who can argue with a pro-privacy candidate? Only a pro-big brother, pro-big government, pro-intrusion, pro-illegitimate authority, anti-Constitution special interest authoritarian, that's who.

I love it. If the Democratic party establishment doesn't embrace and disseminate Kissell's ideas and talking points on choice as a privacy issue ASAP they're as dumb, slow and ineffective as we think we are.

"I'm sure if you asked Rep. Hayes he's 'flat-out, completely, horizontally opposed' to torture, just like he was CAFTA. Too bad he voted for both."
