66 Days: Elizabeth Dole makes a "jolting turnabout" on gun control

DAY 66

During her first campaign for U.S. Senate Elizabeth Dole showed North Carolina how easily she changes her positions to suit her needs when she did an about-face on gun control. In a rare departure from the Republican Party line, Dole came out in support of several gun control measures in 1999 while running for President from Kansas. But in 2001, running for U.S. Senate in North Carolina, Dole saw the writing on the wall and changed her position on gun control to pander to the people in North Carolina. Kay has been and remains an ardent supporter of Second Amendment Rights and has the independence to stand up for what she believes on every issue.

An open letter to North Carolina's Realtors

Dear Realtors.

By now you've noticed that your professional organization, the North Carolina Association of Realtors, has spent your money to influence yet another community decision on transfer taxes. You and your fellow Realtors have tossed in more than $22 for every vote against the tax in Clay County.

George Chunn Vlog Mutual Interview from the DNC

Not all of my conversations at the convention were about issues. On Wednesday night, I sat with George Chunn from Raleigh. We ended up having a great conversation about integrity in politics. Specifically, we talked about what it means to see Barack Obama as a husband and father. Just as my conversation with Jan Roller reminded me of how important it is for white people to talk about race, this conversation reminded me of why men need to talk with each other about fidelity. We tried to recapture some of that here.

You'll also get to hear George talk about what's happening to organize Raleigh. He asked me about what I've been doing in Chapel Hill (hint: we have great parties for Obama!). And he got personal, so I had to tell him some about why my kids like Barack Obama and what I think about a political future for myself. That's a little bit more than I expected to share about myself in these vlogs, but anything is possible in a mutual interview!

Here's part 1:

Under a rock near you

People, I kid you not. This is an actual comment recently posted at TAP. I guess we could expect that Obama's speech, and the wide acclaim it has received, would flush out the cretins. My purpose in cutting-and-pasting it here is to remind my fellow Democrats, Liberals, Progressives and Lefties -- and various and sundry respectable though misguided GOPers -- that this "anonymous" poster is lurking under a rock near you.
