A belated happy birthday to Renee Ellmers

Rep. Ellmers turned the big 50 Saturday. Let's give her a belated gift November. A return trip to Dunn from D.C.

All together now

Happy birthday to you,
Need your paycheck, it's true
Hurt your district, lost your assault gun
Now we bid you adieu!

Better yet, maybe we can get Clay to sing it.

Renee Ellmers flunks the political courage test

Posmo, you are really cooking with your posts, especially this one. I would like to send your ditty to Congresswoman Ellmers by singing telegram, if such things still exist.

I learned of her birthday, when I was looking at her ratings on Vote Smart on political courage. Seems she does not have any of that. On four key issues Project Vote Smart could not rate at all, as she had nothing on the record on the issues in question. On the others she appears not to have a clear position.

Their summary of her profile:

Renee Ellmers refused to tell citizens where she stands on any of the issues addressed in the 2012 Political Courage Test, despite repeated requests from Vote Smart, national media, and prominent political leaders.

Note this is from the site:

Project Vote Smart does not permit the use of its name or programs in any campaign activity, including advertising, debates, and speeches.

That is too bad, because Clay Aiken is going to look great by comparison, even at this early stage.

Thanks Martha

I think "lack of political courage" describes Renee to a 'T'. She does what her party bosses and/or polls tell her. She has no real principles, other than "look out for #1".

And that is often the most dangerous sort of politician.

I'll be happy to join you in singing this duet on Renee's front porch if singing telegrams no longer exist.

He husband shutdown his

He husband shutdown his practice in Dunn. I'm not sure what is going on there, but maybe instead of sending her back to Dunn she might consider going back where they came from. Michigan I believe it is.

I'm a moderate Democrat.

We were thinking

more like Pluto.

But we suppose Michigan will do. We just want her to go somewhere else. She's taking up space and oxygen that could serve better purposes.
