Featuring Pat On Bongos!

In a flurry of news that surprised exactly no one, Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory threw his fedora into the Republican gubernatorial primary. Looks like our Three Stooges metaphor will have to evolve into something like along the lines of The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse.

In any case, McCrory's entry into the race will definitely shake things up, especially since he promises to run his campaign like a garage band.

Rock on, Pat!

Speaking of bongos

Blaming someone else for a screw up? Not an auspicious start. Might be time to bring in a new bass player. From the Dome.

All this time, we thought Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory was running for governor. Turns out, according to his first news release, he's running for "governer."

Update: Victoria Smith, McCrory's campaign manager, just told Dome that they believe someone hacked into their system and inserted the misspelled word in the news release sent by e-mail to reporters.

"There's no way that this was misspelled," Smith said. "I'm going to have to look into this."

My suggestion to Victoria . . . look into a mirror.

Some people

have a first instinct to make sh*t up when confronted with a problem. Not a good quality in a campaign staff. It may be true that there was hacking (I doubt it too) but to float that lame possibility is dumb. W

hy not just say, "We're not sure how that happened, we'll look into it."

Didn't take long for that to get handled

blow by blow from the Dome. At least they had the good sense to send someone else out for the mea culpa.

Pat McCrory's campaign for governor just told Dome the misspelled word was their mistake. Colleen Brannan, a spokeswoman for McCrory, said "governor" was mispelled "governer" on a press release when a designer tried to polish a graphic that would go out with the e-mail, reports Ryan Teague Beckwith, who is with the McCrory campaign in Jamestown.

The designer realized the mistake and fixed it, but not before a handful of people downloaded the incorrect masthead, she said.

Pat and E T?

I find it amusingly ironic that the same neocon Republican mouthpieces who had a field day over Kucinich's admission that he believes he saw a UFO still to this day believe that Iraq had WMDs (and, perhaps, that said WMDs are stashed away in a valley in Syria). Now who's crazier: the guy who believes his own eyes or the guy who believes the government PR? I'd trust Mr. Magoo's judgment over Sean Hannity's any day and one thinks that Victoria should call Sean as their campaign adviser and chief consultant.

Besides, who in the Hell would want to hack his site, since he is not that important in the big political picture, unless the center of the Universe is located in his former hometown of Jamestown...

Pat call home! ET left a message on the voicemail!

MPP and his campaigns

It will be interesting to watch how MPP and his campaign staff actually run a campaign. He has not had a real race in quite some time so I wonder if he is up to it.

McCrory's Band

Dome asked if McCrory had any bands in mind, and he cited the Beatles.

"I told my campaign team one minute they might be on bass guitar and the next minute they might go to drums," he said. "We're going to have a very flexible team."

Can you imagine Ringo and Paul switching jobs? God, that would have sucked.

What a goofball.

I think we have a confuzzled Myers Park Pat on our hands. The teleprompter said "MORTGAGE BANK" and he somehow read "GARAGE BAND."

Maybe Jim Black can fit him out with some new glasses!

Paul's not a bad drummer.

but . . . I can't imagine Ringo on bass.

Beating Pat Band into Spike Jones marching political band

Dome asked if McCrory had any bands in mind, and he cited the Beatles.

"I told my campaign team one minute they might be on bass guitar and the next minute they might go to drums," he said. "We're going to have a very flexible team." * Pat

It is appears that his band of brothers is just a knockoff from the late 40's band...Spike Jones and his band of jolly nuts

Gerage band, eh?

How sad. I think he has revealed throughout this diva-like drama what he really thinks of the governor's office: not much.

Maybe PM is runnin' fer governer, but he is in the wrong state. I think that position is located in Georgia, or perhaps a state or two east of Louisiana.

Oh, and there may be a few

Republicans on the far right who start viewing the Patgobyebye site, but not for issues relating to McHenry.

speaking of Georgia

I met Governor Roy Barnes. He stopped by our field office to give some inspiration to the volunteers. He is a pretty impressive person. Fit my view of what the Classic Southern Democrat Governor looks like in the way he handled himself. He and his wife were also just genuinely nice people.

Now friends, don't be so hard on Pat. After all, he's just been endorsed by N.C.'s only two Republican governers of the twentieth century.

I would not want Pat assigning duties to me.

Bev, or Moore would be a better fit for you Dan...... Actually I think you and Bev would be a great team in Raleigh....but thats just me.
