We don’t need no stinkin’ polls….

Even Stevie Wonder could see that Elizabeth Dole is woefully out of touch with voters.

Earlier this year, Senate GOP leaders listed Dole in a select group of vulnerable incumbents needing extra financial report, according to Congressional Quarterly.

Public Policy Polling consistently shows Dole’s numbers under 50 percent. Only 39 percent of respondents in Elon University’s poll said in April they approved of the way Dole is handling our business in the Senate.

Despite such evidence, a cloak of invincibility has been thrown around her shoulders.

WMD Whistle Blower: Today’s Creative Loafing Cover Story

As most of you know by now, Ambassador Joseph Wilson will be headlining an event for my campaign in Charlotte this Saturday. I hope to see you all there.

I hope you’ll read the entire article, but some of what the Ambassador says deserves mention here, as it serves to elaborate on why I’m so honored to have this patriot join me.

I'm not sure I can entirely explain what's going on between Moore and Perdue right now, but I can tell you one thing: it ain't pretty. For those not interested in all the sordid details, it goes something like this (thanks to the Dome's steady reporting):

Tuesday, Sept 18 OLF meeting

Went to the meeting for the OLF selection in Raleigh and got a few tidbits of information:

Adm. Anderson stated that if there was not a house within 100 miles of Oceana and Fentress he would still need this second OLF for Oceana. Encroachment around Oceana is not impacting the operation at the site.

Hummmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmmm, Adm. Anderson might want to look at the 2005 BRAC. Encroachment is bad enough that the abandonment of a mission has been called for.

Cherry Point does not need an OLF. Cherry Point can perform all the FCLPs needed by the Navy squadrons assigned. If it becomes necessary, the planes can just fly to Oceana and or Fentress.

George Bush Misunderestimates Gold Star Mothers

From Daily Kos.

George Bush held a pep-rally at the White House today and made what was perhaps the most idiotic remark in a long line of idiocies from his misbegotten presidency:

Gold Star Mothers, got you, okay, thank you -- Blue Star Mothers, Gold Star Mothers, all the mothers, yes. (Applause.) Every day is Mother's Day as far as your concerned, isn't it?
