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.
