NC-05: Summer Lipford Responds to Foxx Criticism of "Gold Star" Ad

Excerpted from Summer Lipford's online response to an article in the Winston-Salem Journal yesterday:

Contacting me 10 weeks after his funeral with a form letter of condolence does not constitute her assistance, assistance not that I asked for-- but begged for. I am not malicious, disgusting or dishonest. I had nothing to gain by telling my story. I am a mother who grieves every day for my child and prays no other mother has to walk my path, no other mother has to live with the lack of concern and disrespect shown to my son and myself by Virginia Foxx. As I have stated, none of this can change for me, but by electing Roy Carter I know it will not happen again.

This story was also the lead on WXII last night.

Dole Slips in Polls Again After Godless Ad Hits Kay Hagan

A brand new Rasmussen poll is just in and Elizabeth Dole has fallen even further behind Democratic challenger Kay Hagan. The poll shows it was in the field at the same time Dole was carpet bombing North Carolina with ads attacking Kay Hagan's faith.

Indy Weekly: Hagan's "atheist" actually a former Sunday school teacher

Charles Frederick (Rick) Stone III currently studies theology at the Harvard Divinity School. Stone lived in Greensboro and taught Biblical studies at Greensboro College, which is affiliated with the United Methodist Church, and Guilford College, which draws on Quaker tradition.

Care about having a sane energy policy?

Richard Harkrader is one of (if not THE most) knowledgeable people on renewable energy in North Carolina. I received this email from him today:

As everyone is well aware, this is an important election. With all the attention on the national race, the governor's race has been in the background. I want to make sure everyone concerned about energy knows how important it is for NC to elect Bev Perdue.

North Carolina newspapers slam Dole for "Godless" ad

(cross-posted at dKos and The Christian Dem Home Journal)

Two of North Carolina's three biggest newspapers--the Charlotte Observer and (Greensboro) News & Record gave their verdict on Liddy Dole's disgusting ad implying that Kay Hagan doesn't believe in God. And in both cases, it's a massive fail.

Speaking of Wrenn (again)

Ok, some of you might be getting tired of me posting Wrenn's stuff here, but I think it's interesting and he came up with another that I think has bipartisan appeal. Granted, he seems to be promoting past speaker Robert Morgan's book, but I can't hold that against him. Morgan is actually far more interesting than newspaper headlines along might suggest.

This one I've edited because I didn't want to do that whatever it is to link to the link that this post actually starts off with. Carter posted a link from "BOSTON LEGAL" that shows Denny Crane getting mugged. He goes on to write:

Former House Speaker Richard Morgan’s book, The Fourth Witch: A Memoir of Politics and Sinning, has the same virtue as William Shatner’s video: Humor. No one gets shot by a gun-toting Boston lawyer but there are plenty of other good stories straight out of North Carolina politics.

He then excerpts a few, and for those of you who enjoy politics and political anecdotes, I strongly recommend you check it out ~
