The NCGOP convention was held this past weekend. What? You did not hear about it? Apparently that is because they were so scared of reporters reporting what was going on that they barred them from the event. The NC Democratic Party takes the GOP to the woodshed over this issue in this blog post:
“The North Carolina Republican Party is worried and it showed with their closed convention,” said North Carolina Democratic Party Chair Jerry Meek. “Their Party is in disarray from the Bush administration on down. For fear of their activists and delegates admitting that they are frustrated and dispirited, the NCGOP banned access and transparency. When the North Carolina Democratic Party meets on June 24th in High Point for our State Convention, all convention business will be open to the press. Not only is that more democratic, it’s the right thing to do.”
I have nothing more to add other than the fact that Bush and Pope have apparently successfully convinced the NCGOP that it is a little bit shameful to be a Republican. We just need to keep reminding everyone of that fact.
