The Most Important Race of All

If you asked a pollster, they’d probably tell you I’m the last person they’d expect to speak out for a Democratic presidential candidate a few days before the election. I live in a rural part of a conservative state. I’m an avid hunter and fisher. I’ve voted for many Republicans over many decades. And let’s face it – NASCAR car drivers and Democrats don’t usually mix.

But then again, no one expected my state of North Carolina to be a toss-up a few days before the election, either. And yet here we are. So what’s going on?

Jesus Swept


All the fancy talk these days about religion and politics has reminded me (duh) of the novel I wrote over the past ten years. It is called Jesus Swept. To my joy and amazement, it will be published next month by Kitsune Books. Here's a sampling of dialog from page ninety-one. Liz and Frank are flying back to North Carolina from DC.

Kay Hagan Files Defamation Suit

According to just about everyone in the free world Elizabeth Dole crossed the line with her "Godless" ad attacking Kay Hagan.

Kay is fighting back. She has not only released a strong ad, but plans to fight back in court.

GREENSBORO, NC- Kay Hagan filed a lawsuit against Elizabeth Dole and the Elizabeth Dole Committee, Inc., after Dole declined to remove her new television ad, described by North Carolina newspapers as "indecent," a "gross misrepresentation," "dishonest," and "beyond the bounds of acceptable political disagreement."

NC-05: Summer Lipford Responds to Foxx Criticism of "Gold Star" Ad

Excerpted from Summer Lipford's online response to an article in the Winston-Salem Journal yesterday:

Contacting me 10 weeks after his funeral with a form letter of condolence does not constitute her assistance, assistance not that I asked for-- but begged for. I am not malicious, disgusting or dishonest. I had nothing to gain by telling my story. I am a mother who grieves every day for my child and prays no other mother has to walk my path, no other mother has to live with the lack of concern and disrespect shown to my son and myself by Virginia Foxx. As I have stated, none of this can change for me, but by electing Roy Carter I know it will not happen again.

This story was also the lead on WXII last night.

Dole Slips in Polls Again After Godless Ad Hits Kay Hagan

A brand new Rasmussen poll is just in and Elizabeth Dole has fallen even further behind Democratic challenger Kay Hagan. The poll shows it was in the field at the same time Dole was carpet bombing North Carolina with ads attacking Kay Hagan's faith.

Care about having a sane energy policy?

Richard Harkrader is one of (if not THE most) knowledgeable people on renewable energy in North Carolina. I received this email from him today:

As everyone is well aware, this is an important election. With all the attention on the national race, the governor's race has been in the background. I want to make sure everyone concerned about energy knows how important it is for NC to elect Bev Perdue.

North Carolina newspapers slam Dole for "Godless" ad

(cross-posted at dKos and The Christian Dem Home Journal)

Two of North Carolina's three biggest newspapers--the Charlotte Observer and (Greensboro) News & Record gave their verdict on Liddy Dole's disgusting ad implying that Kay Hagan doesn't believe in God. And in both cases, it's a massive fail.
