Heath Shuler Sits Down With Screwy Hoolie

Heath Shuler was kind enough to sit down for few minutes before a "meet-the-candidates" forum and answer some questions. With Charles Taylor outspending Shuler 4-1 on media buys, spending $300,000 last week alone, Scrutiny Hooligans are doing our small part in moving the media wars towards parity.

Watch it.

Great Work Screwy!

Heck! We havent even met yet but yet I consider you to be a great friend! Great Work!

Very Cool!

I'm glad you were able to get that to work!

Heath seems a little more comfortable in his own skin delivering his message now. He's clearly going off-script, and (at least to my ears) he doesn't sound anything at all like the "dumb jock" that many of his detractors are trying to paint him as.

(He's no Great Orator, but he's certainly more charismatic than his opponent. Shuler could probably still benefit from joining Toastmasters, though...)

"we're banging pots and pans / to make you understand / we're gonna bury you, man"

is this post messing up the BlueNC frontpage?

It is from here.

When the automatic teaser break was inserted,

it went between an open tag and a close tag in the youtube embed code. No big deal: I just added a "<!--break-->" to the post.

That was great!

So glad Heath sat down with you. I'll go rec, but I'm afraid I'm a bit late. Sorry.

You ROCK! with the combo of YouTube, blogs and citizen journalism...the face of politics is changing fast!

Went up to your part of NC yesterday to take some pics for a future "Tour" of the Lake Lure and Chimney rock area. While I was up there, took these of the burma shave signs:

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

LOVE IT!

Thanks for postin' the pics, Momo.

I'm glad you like the signs

Many people fought long and hard for those. ;)

And all the men and women merely players.”
So enjoy the Drama.

Every time I passed those signs

I screamed, hooted and hollared! Hubby, Boo and Big Jim, the other three members of the Four North Carolinians caught on fast and started whooping with me. I could hardly wait to get back and post them here for all to see! Great job WNC!

Signs...

If you want to post the signs in your area, let us know. We are saving them and will get some to NC Dems in other parts of the state to use as we change them out. We're on the last set now. Contact mhufford@ncdp.org to get some!!! You can use them to coordinate your own campaign as we have. We had our candidates talking on the same points in the signs, and editorials being written on topic whenever new signs went up.

The most encouraging thing about the video...

The most encouraging thing about the video is that it feels like first-hand news, front-line reporting. You may have noticed from other posts on BlueNC that I'm worried about the demise of newspapers, even of Anglico's favorite target, the N&O, because I want there to be someone on the ground reporting and some way to find the report.

This is a great example of what may someday replace part of the big media.

I don't want the N&O dead . . . I want it to be alive again . . . which is why I sent this letter to the publisher today (thanks to email address from Kirk Ross at Exile):

Dear Mr. Quarles:

What on earth is going on with your newspaper? It’s like the wheels are falling off … and a once-admired institution is devolving into a parody of itself.

Your editorial page is good for maybe one strong opinion a month, if that. Your political reporters carry water for Art Pope and the John Locke Puppetshow nearly every day. You have a staff columnist who recycles right wing talking points from the Carolina Journal as often as not. And now you’re selling the front page of what used the be the only decent paper in Chapel Hill.

I know, I know, these are “economic decisions.” Of course they are. They’re the natural consequence of the decisions your company has made. This is what happens when a newspaper goes from standing for something to standing for nothing in the course of a couple of years.

I subscribed to your paper for 20 years. I was an intensely loyal customer. And now I am so far gone, you couldn’t pay me to read the paper again.

I recently asked readers at BlueNC.com why they subscribed to the N&O still. There was only one answer: the comics.

Get a new editorial page editor.
Rededicate your organization to excellence and objectivity in political reporting.
Stop pandering to rightwing think tanks.
Stand for something.

That’s what it’ll take to get me back.

The YouTube graphic is over a foot below

the text. I'm at the Asheville library and it's very weird.
Great interview, Screwy.

Looks good from home, tho.

DQ, there are some theme issues

When things are too wide for the center column. It happens rarely enough that I don't worry too much about smoking out the problem and fixing it. Just out of curiosity, were the library computers ancient? This site is really, REALLY, tight on an 800x600 pixel screen.

Hi Lance

They looked pretty new to me. Flat screens. Fast, too. Don't remember the size but they were at least as big as mine. I've never seen this problem on this one.

Momo's photos also showed up about a foot below where they appear here.

And this monitor (I just measured) is 16 inches diagonally. (Are computer screens like 2X4 where they always round up? I've never heard of a 16" screen).

It's all pixel size with monitors, I think

But I'm no expert.

Thanks Everybody!

I wasn't happy with the interview at the time, but the more y'all like it, the happier I get.

Heath and his campaign staff gave very freely of their time, and I hope to spend more time interviewing our candidate.
