Elizabeth Dole Attacks Sunday School Teacher and Church Elder, Kay Hagan's Faith

It wasn't enough for Elizabeth Dole to claim that "our love of God" is at stake in this election, implying that sending Democrats to Washington puts love of family and God at risk. Dole now has an ad out showing a picture of Kay Hagan with a woman's voice saying, "there is no God." The ad is creating the confusion the Dole campaign wanted. We received one call today from a woman who said, "Kay Hagan said there is no God." We fortunately were able to help her with correct information.

Those who know him best

Pat McCrory is an unknown outside of Charlotte. So what do hometown folks think? What do people who have to actually work with hizzoner have to say? Read for yourself:

As Charlotte's mayor pro tem, many people have asked me who I support for governor. My answer is clear -- Bev Perdue.

In fact, the majority of the Charlotte City Council supports Perdue for governor. I know both candidates personally. I served with Charlotte Mayor Pat McCrory on the City Council for seven years, and I've seen first-hand Perdue's work as lt. governor. She is the leader we need during these difficult times.


The current issue of the New Yorker has a piece by David Sedaris in which he discusses undecided voters. This part struck me as particularly apt:

"I look at these people and can't quite believe that they exist. Are they professional actors? Or are they simply laymen who want a lot of attention? To put them in perspective, I think of being on an airplane. The flight attendant comes down the aisle with her food cart and, eventually, parks it beside my seat. 'Can I interest you in the chicken?' she asks, 'Or would you prefer the platter of shit with bits of broken glass in it?' To be undecided in this election is to pause for a moment and then ask how the chicken is cooked."

The Cost of Living in Paradise

Those of us lucky enough to live in Moore County know we’ve got it good. Some even call it paradise. As any Eagles fan knows, “they call it paradise, I don’t know why, you call someplace paradise, kiss it goodbye.”

I think the following excerpt from a Fayetteville Observer article "Economy is a worry even in paradise" exemplifies how our little slice of paradise is threatened.

Mary Jakucyk can be charming.

She has crystal-clear blue eyes, soft and smooth skin. And a disdain for Obama.

She’s not keen on McCain, either.
