Go give a little lovin' to Blue NC's first(?) spinoff: Pat Go Bye-Bye, an on-line journal of happ'nin's and commentary about North Carolina's 10th District. The not-so-fightin' 10th runs from the Tennessee border to South Carolina, including Spruce Pine, Newland, Morganton, Lenoir, Hickory, Lincoln, Shelby, and parts of Gaston, Iredell, and Rutherford counties.
Represented by the great whiner, Pat McHenry (recently called "that little shit" by Bill Maher), democrats of the gerrymandered 10th need all the support we can get. (Did anybody happen to get that clip of Bill from Friday night, February 16, 2007?)
Please go below the fold to see a short list of little favors for which I'm soliciting help.
I'm particularly proud of the color scheme. It's in honor of our congressman's rumored sexual orientation.
CALL FOR GRAPHIC ARTIST/PHOTOSHOP WIZARD: Pat Go Bye bye is looking for a logo, something with Pat McHenry's inflated head getting the boot, perhaps? I guess a donkey doing the kicking is called for but not mandatory.
CALL FOR TECHNICAL HELP: Nothing too major. I need a calendar for Pat Go Bye-Bye. I could just enter items as a new list along the side from soonest to farthest. But, it would be nice if people could click on the feature and enter their own items. Maybe that's not possible unless they are registered to post? It's a blogspot website.
CALL FOR NC LINKS: Let me know (here or there) if you want the site to link to your blog or website.
CALL FOR UNRELATED LOGO/DESIGN: Also needed, a logo that would illustrate a series of on-line articles about political women from WNC. The title, "Women of the West." So it would have a cowboy theme (or not.) The first of the series will feature five women from all over WNC but future articles will probably be about clusters of 3 or 4 women from Watauga and Buncombe.
CALL FOR LIDDY DOLE PHOTOSHOPPED SILLINESS: She's never in North Carolina. She's travelled her fewer times than Hillary goes to New York. She's documented as putting her husband's future career ahead of the safety of our blood supply as head of the Red Cross in the 90s. She's catering to an Air Force plan to put Admiral's comfort ahead of pilot safety (and the fate of zillions of migrating birds and local farmers). And then there's the hair. What's there not to satire?
