It's Christian Against Christian in my inbox

Do the people who write these "prayer warrior" emails ever stop to consider that for THEIR prayers to be "answered," other people, other good Christians, have to have their prayers "denied"? What kind of a religious view is that, anyway?

Are we really lining up red and blue "prayer warriors" like a gigantic game of Rock-em Sock-em Robots?

They want war

We have all witnessed the disgusting charade that is the John McCain-Sarah Palin campaign - a frenzy of racist hate and brown-shirt activism that would shame any decent human being. Today that campaign reached a new low right here in North Carolina.

A dead bear was found dumped this morning on the Western Carolina University campus, draped with a pair of Obama campaign signs, university police said.

Open Thread: Miss Arnold would have voted early.

Robin Hayes at McCain Rally in NC: Liberals aren't real Americans

It's the new theme of the campaign, but it really isnt' a new theme at all. The whole liberals are un-American buzz is just getting new life by the likes of Michele Bachmann and Robin Hayes. By now most are familiar with Michele Bachmann's McCarthy-like charge that members of congress should be investigated for un-American activities. With the response from the netroots after that fiasco you would think that other Republicans, especially those who aren't in safe districts, would stay away from making similar charges.

Elizabeth Dole Suffers Ultimate Humiliation

Elizabeth Dole - the woman who would be First Lady and then President, the woman who is a scion of Washington's social elite, the very same woman who says her ancestors spent plenty of time in North Carolina even if she has not - this woman, Elizabeth Dole, has been reduced to a warmup act for Sarah Palin, the upstart from a tiny town in Alaska. It wasn't supposed to be that way. Not only was Elizabeth Dole supposed to be headlining important speeches, she was supposed to be leading in the polls. Now, poor Liddy finds herself being bested by two women - Kay Hagan is leading Dole in the polls and Sarah Palin is headlining GOP events.

Six Great Progressive Candidates Need Your Support

Late infusions of campaign cash can make a world of difference to a candidate who is just within reach of beating an incumbent or even an incumbent who's defending a seat from a conservative challenger. That's particularly true this year as momentum at the top of the ticket appears to be giving down ballot progressive candidates a real boost.

Live-Blog Tonight with Adam Shephard, Author of Scratch Beginnings

Tonight at 7:00 p.m. we have the pleasure of hosting Adam Shephard, the author of Scratch Beginnings for the first (and possibly only) live-blog of his national book tour. Adam is a recent college graduate and resident of Raleigh who gave up everything he owned and knew to prove that the American Dream is still available for those who work hard. My daughers and I read his book and thoroughly enjoyed his adventures. It's the first book in a long time that I didn't want to put down until I had finished reading it. Emily has now read it five times.

News & Observer Endorses Obama

The Raleigh News and Observer joined the Asheville Citizen-Times, the Greenville Daily Reflector and the Wilmington Star News in endorsing Barack Obama for president. In their words:

In fact, the junior U.S. senator from Illinois -- the son of a white mother from Kansas and a black father from Kenya, the product of humble beginnings and a raising by his extended family, the kid with big dreams, the young man with much ambition, the hard worker who made the most of his education and his opportunities and then went to Chicago to help others do likewise -- could not be more of an example of all that America is and all that it can be. Barack Obama has weathered the rigors of a long and difficult fight for his party's presidential nomination and now seeks to make true the biggest dream of all, to become the president of the United States.

Today, a little more than two weeks from this critically important Election Day, The News & Observer, with pride and hope, in the belief that Obama is exactly what the nation needs at a time when the hills are steep and the winds against us are stiff, enthusiastically endorses him for president. His time has come. And these times have come to him.

It's a beautifully written endorsement.
