Sue who?

This from the odd couple over at Talking about politics.

My old friend and adversary Jack Hawke sponsored a conservative gripe-a-thon in Durham last week. "It is a travesty that North Carolina is controlled by the Democrats," U.S. Representative Virginia Foxx told the N.C. Conservative Leadership Conference.

I disagree, of course. I believe it's a credit to the good judgment of North Carolinians that Democrats hold the Governor's Office and both houses of the GA. But Jack had one thing right. The state GOP lacks a strong spokesperson. No star power, if you will.

In my view, Democrats have that quality of candidate on the bench for 2008. Berverly Perdue, Richard Moore, Roy Cooper, Bill Faison.

The Republicans have nobody. They're so desperate I hear talk about Senator Elizabeth Dole running for Governor. But she's crawled into a hole so deep in Washington I doubt she can find her way back here.

One of the commenters asks why Pearce doesn't mention Susie Myrick as a potential Republican star. Why indeed? Myrick is a bush-league Bushbot of virtually no consequence in any matter of importance. She's has personally helped to destroy the fiscal integrity of our country, make our citizens less secure in the world, and abetted the Bush Family Crime ring in its despicable reign of error. I don't know what she did as mayor in Charlotte, but if her record in Congress is any indication, it must have been pretty sad.

I spoke with Bill Faison last week

and I have to say he is very compelling. I went into the conversation expecting not to like him - but nothing could have been further from the truth. Now, I really need to dig through his voting record to see how it stacks up - but he said he supported all the right things.

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

Spoken with some republican relatives this week

up here in PA. Mentioned that I would like to see Edwards take out Dole. Their response - they'll never have her run again.

They live in California and they see Dole as damaged goods.

Now that is good news

She doesn't seem to get much press or notice lately. I don't think her troubles with the FEC are over yet.

Be careful

Be careful NC. TX lost its Dem majorities in the mid 90s. It can happen there too if the Dems in control get too complacent. I take pride in telling my TX friends about Dems controlling NC. They think its amazing.

We are paying attention

It would be awful and we are all working hard to keep it from happening.
