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.

Let’s yank it off by exposing that Dole repeatedly votes against improved health care benefits for veterans and has voted with Bush 91 percent of the time. In fact, during her first year in office, in 2003, she voted with him 98 percent of the time

She's running as fast

from George as she can right now. Our job is to make her record stick to her like a new pair of false eyelashes.


And now that the OLF is back in the news, that old albatross will be coming home to roost, too. As everyone knows, Liddy was a cheerleader for Site C before she was against it. In fact, most folks in the northeast part of the state think she was a player in making that whole stinky mess happen in the first place.

We have to get to the bottom of that.

Run Liddy Run

Hope she doesn't break a heel sprinting away from the Bush's Administrations bungled policies.

As late as February, Dole told the Winston-Salem Journal: “[T]he bottom line is I am supporting the president’s plan…”

Has Dole finally realized that Bush’s “stay the course” strategy has taken us woefully off track?

Her words say “yes”, but her votes say “no”.

Just this afternoon, she voted against the Webb Amendment that would have ensured that servicemen and women would have at least the same time at home before being redeployed to Iraq or Afghanistan and would give reservists a minimum of three years at home before redeployment. In North Carolina alone there are over 23,000 men and women on active duty, and over 13,000 reservists.

She also voted against timelines and deadlines for troop withdrawal, restrictions on troop deployment, and troop reduction.

Well-behaved women never make history.

Well-behaved women never make history.

More importantly...

She voted to support a filibuster of the Webb amendment. Meaning, in the tradition of the Senate, she saw the Webb amendment as something so bad it couldn't even be allowed to come to a vote.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

Dole doesn't play well with others....

I love this video:

That was then.....this is now.....from the Washington Post....

Even Sen. Elizabeth Dole (R-N.C.), a mainstream conservative who has never publicly strayed from the administration's position on Iraq, made it clear that she would now support "what some have called action-forcing measures."

"The difficulty of the current American and Iraqi situation is rooted in large part in the Bush administration's substantial failure to understand the full implications of our military invasion and the litany of mistakes made at the outset of the war," Dole said.

No matter that patriotism is too often the refuge of scoundrels. Dissent, rebellion, and all-around hell-raising remain the true duty of patriots.

PVS is a great resource.

You can find all kinds of skeletons that Dole and Burr would just as soon didn't see the light of day. Makes for good LTE info.

I actively oppose gerrymandering. Do you?
