A Progressive Majority in 2008 pt 1

In North Carolina we have a problem. While we control the State House and State Senate, we have some Democrats who are closer to Republicans than anything else. When you are conservative on social matters, and a moderate on economic issues, I dont know what else to call someone besides a DINO.

Personally I dont really want to spend time worrying about which Democrats deserve to be primaried and which dont. I think that process is often counter productive.

However, we need more Progressive Democrats, and we need to give some allies to the friends that we have in the General Assembly. So, walk with me as I take a look at some districts worthy of attention.

The Neon Bible

A green hunting cap squeezed the top of the fleshy balloon of a head. The green earflaps, full of large ears and uncut hair and the fine bristles that grew in the ears themselves, stuck out on either side like turn signals indicating two directions at once. Full, pursed lips protruded beneath the bushy black moustache and, at their corners, sank into little folds filled with disapproval and potato chip crumbs.
