Elizabeth Dole One of Keith O's Worst Persons in the World

I didn't get to see it, but I found an email in my in box. Soooo, I'm offering the first person to post the video in the comment section or to add it to this diary post their choice of my homemade peach, strawberry or blackberry jam as a reward for their speedy posting of the video.

Elizabeth Dole Attacks Sunday School Teacher and Church Elder, Kay Hagan's Faith

It wasn't enough for Elizabeth Dole to claim that "our love of God" is at stake in this election, implying that sending Democrats to Washington puts love of family and God at risk. Dole now has an ad out showing a picture of Kay Hagan with a woman's voice saying, "there is no God." The ad is creating the confusion the Dole campaign wanted. We received one call today from a woman who said, "Kay Hagan said there is no God." We fortunately were able to help her with correct information.

Those who know him best

Pat McCrory is an unknown outside of Charlotte. So what do hometown folks think? What do people who have to actually work with hizzoner have to say? Read for yourself:

As Charlotte's mayor pro tem, many people have asked me who I support for governor. My answer is clear -- Bev Perdue.

In fact, the majority of the Charlotte City Council supports Perdue for governor. I know both candidates personally. I served with Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory on the City Council for seven years, and I've seen first-hand Perdue's work as lt. governor. She is the leader we need during these difficult times.

Elizabeth Dole: "Our Love of God" is at stake in this election

U.S. Senator Elizabeth Dole has joined Robin Hayes and Virigina Fox in running a divisive campaign intended to pit neighbor against neighbor here in North Carolina. According to Dole it isn't just her seat in the Senate that is at stake. She told supporters in Nash County on Sunday that,

It’s not just to save this seat; we are trying to save the values that we care about in America. We’re trying to save honesty and integrity and hard work and personal responsibility and love of family and love of God. That’s what this is all about, and it’s a serious time.

That's right. According to Elizabeth Dole if Democrats win there will be no more honesty or integrity in this country.

Patrick "Duke" McCrory's Conflicts of Interest

Pat McCrory is still Mayor of Charlotte and only in January "quit" his simultaneous full time job with Duke Energy to run for Governor. Duke Energy PAC gave McCrory $4,000 the same month and $4,000 this July [7/23/08 according to FEC reports]. McCrory still will not disclose the full extent of his financial relationship with Duke Energy and related businesses.

McCrory once went to Washington, in 1997, to testify, as Mayor, against EPA clean air regulations for the Charlotte area that would have cost Duke Energy $600 million.

Again in 2007 McCrory spoke on Capitol Hill at a hearing of the Committee on Energy and Commerce. McCrory talked about climate change and advocated for "clean coal" and nuclear power, both beneficial to Duke Energy. He addressed the hearing as Mayor of Charlotte and Chairman of the U.S. Conference of Mayors Environment Committee. He did not state that he was also an employee of Duke Energy even though his boss addressed the hearing the very next day.

Yesterday the NC Democratic Party issued a press release with more examples of Pat McCrory's conflicts of interest with respect to Duke Energy and his role as Mayor.

Open Thread: These folks would have voted early.


BAGHDAD, Iraq (Jan. 30, 2005) – Iraqi citizens stand in long lines outside a polling station in Baghdad, Iraq, today. Millions of Iraqis throughout the country are participating in Iraq's first free election in more than 35 years. DoD photo by Master Sgt. Dave Ahlschwede, U.S. Air Force.

Note the apparently armed men on the roof protecting the polling place. Yeah, they were willing to risk death to vote.
