WMD Whistle Blower: Today’s Creative Loafing Cover Story

As most of you know by now, Ambassador Joseph Wilson will be headlining an event for my campaign in Charlotte this Saturday. I hope to see you all there.

What you may not have seen yet, however, is the wonderful cover story in today’s Creative Loafing on the Ambassador’s visit. I hope you’ll read the entire article, but some of what the Ambassador says deserves mention here, as it serves to elaborate on why I’m so honored to have this patriot join me.

Asked to describe his politics, Wilson pulls no punches.

Well, first of all, I describe myself as American before I'd describe myself as a member of a particular party. And secondly, to those critics who try to paint me as leftist, I'd like to remind them it was George Herbert Walker Bush who made me Ambassador to two African countries and for whom I served as the acting ambassador to Baghdad. I was actually also invited to be a founding member of Ambassadors for Bush before the 2000 election. So any political evolution towards the center or any political evolution whatsoever is as much a consequence of the truly horrid management of the American nation by this particular administration.

I have to say I can certainly relate to taking a stand given the everyday American’s genuine frustration with this administration’s “truly horrid management of the American nation.” I can also relate to why Ambassador Wilson has been so kind to our campaign against Robin Hayes.

Guys, this is so important, as is the end of the fundraising quarter coming up. If there’s any way at all for you to join us Saturday, please do.

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.

I'll be there, Larry

I was going to say, "With bells on", but I can't seem to find them. :)

Me Too!

BlueNC will be REPRESENTING!

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

I'll be there too!

And hopefully dragging some college dems along with me..

I'm not against primaries.

They're part of the system; part of what make it work (when it works). But I'm glad to hear this - I'm glad Larry can concentrate on running against Hayes, and not having to run against a fellow Democrat.

euhm..well...

I'm glad Larry can concentrate on running against Hayes, and not having to run against a fellow Democrat.

He will still have to run against John Autry.

Oh. Sorry. Not paying attention.

I admit, I was so excited at the thought of acutally having an opponent to Howard Coble, that I momentarily lost my mind.

Oh Please

He only has to run against Robin Hayes. Even the Charlotte Observer article didn't mention Autry and the reporter knows who he is and knows he has filed.
