Yesterday I reported that gubernatorial wannabe Bill Graham has chosen an up-and-coming loser to be the brains behind his campaign to take over the governor's mansion. Today the News and Observer follows up with more brilliance from the boy wonder.
Nick will also be senior strategist for N.C. Conservatives United, which is Graham's political committee. But that committee is likely to morph into Graham's gubernatorial campaign if, as expected, he announces for governor.
The move by Nick could generate more gossip that Dole does not plan to seek a second term in 2008. But Nick says that is nonsense. "She is fully committed to running," Nick said. "Honestly, the fact that rumors come from the Democratic Party should tell you what they are worth. That is wishful thinking." (emphasis added)
Anybody with half a brain, which obviously excludes Nick, knows that progressive Democrats in North Carolina totally support the Very Senior Senator running for reelection. We can spot losers a mile away, and these days, they're like fish in a barrel. Which only goes to show how little Brian Nick understands politics here in the Old North State.
But come to think of it, Brian Nick apparently doesn't understand politics anywhere based on his sparkling record of inane comments. He also doesn't understand that joining Bill Graham's campaign for governor is like climbing into a hearse on the way to the cemetery.
