This story in The Charlotte Observer is too funny for words....but I'll give it my best shot. It seems that Republican Senators Dole and Burr have tried to delay the vote on Ferrell Blount's replacement because they don't like the list of nominees.
Guess what, Liddy and Dick, we don't either.
Pile on below the fold...
According to the Observer, interim chair, Linda Daves of Charlotte, declined to postpone the vote. It doesn't look like she appreciated the input of the esteemed senators much, either.
"The meeting is going to happen," Daves said Wednesday. "This is a situation that is left up to the (party) executive committee."
And why, you might ask, would Liddy and Dick want the vote delayed?
The move reflects a push by some within the GOP to bolster the party's fundraising ability and strengthen its ties to the business community. Democrats have outspent Republicans in statewide campaigns for years despite continuing growth in the GOP ranks.
That's all code for: moneymoneymoneymoney MONEY.
Man, Liddy and Dick dissed by their own party. You know Liddy Dole is in a nervous sweat. It's her seat up for grabs in two years and for the next six months the NCGOP will be operating under an interim chair with all sorts of folks vying for the seat in May. Repeat after me - complete and utter chaos.
The article goes on to say that Linda Daves has an advantage after serving seven years as vice-chair. Always the bridesmaid, Linda, always the bridesmaid. No wonder you didn't want to delay the meeting. I'm sure seven years of playing second fiddle gets old, especially when Liddy and Dick are so open about wanting to replace you with yet another man....because you knew it would be a man, right? Sucks, doesn't it, sweetie?
Good luck on Saturday, Linda. You deserve to sit in the big boy seat for the next six months. You've earned it. Oh, and I wouldn't let a little thing like insulting two United States Senators weigh heavy on you. You go, girlfriend.
