Liddy Dole: Good for a laugh

You gotta hand it to the Lidster, she's good for a laugh, even on her worst and most offensive days. Have you seen the news that she wants the mean old Democrats not to spend money against her in the general election?

One of U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's top campaign advisors says he has asked the state and national Republican parties, as well as the National Republican Senatorial Committee, to steer clear of advertising in North Carolina's U.S. Senate race. And he's calling on Jerry Meek, chairman of the N.C. Democratic Party, to do likewise with his Democratic counterparts.

"You can agree to not run advertising targeting Senator Dole during the 2008 election cycle as well as encourage your Senate nominee and national parties to abstain from third party advertisements," Mark Stephens, Dole's chief campaign strategist, said in a letter today to Meek.

Surprise, surprise. After her disastrous tenure has the head of the NRSC, which is sucking wind in comparison to the Democratic committee, it's no wonder she wants to keep national money from the airwaves in North Carolina. Neal or Hagan will need all the support they can get from the purse-string holders in DC. Some campaign stunts are so transparent as to be laughable. This is one of them.

Got any advice for Jerry on this one?

But yesterday she couldn't be bothered to address the "third party" ad from the NCGOP?

Now she's arguing against them?

I've got some advice for Jerry on this one......

and if he'd stop rolling around on the floor laughing he might be able to listen to my advice.

This is the saddest and funniest thing I've read in a long time.

Oh....the advice? Run as many ads as you/we can afford.

Dole Should Stop Trying to Change the Subject

Elizabeth Dole should stop trying to change the subject and start telling the truth.

Irony #1

If Dole was able to produce this kind of agreement with her state party this quickly, then she clearly has considerable influence with them, and she should use that influence to stop the dishonest ad the NCGOP plans to run.

If she won’t make it stop, then she should return the $49,000 her campaign accepted from the North Carolina Republican Party.

Irony #2

Senator Dole also fails to mention that she led one of the organizations that she now seeks to limit. During her tenure as Chair of the National Republican Senatorial Committee, she came under intense scrutiny for the racially tinged ads the NRSC ran against Congressman Harold Ford in Tennessee.

The Truth

Democratic Party ads will address the real issues that people care about -- like Dole's vote against the minimum wage and her votes against veterans’ benefits.

We are confident that in the end voters will respond to our message instead of divisive, distracting and offensive messages that play on voters’ fears.

This may be the one that has made me laugh out loud in 3 days.

Oh. My. Goddess.

I can't believe I'm going to type this.

thank you, Liddy Dole. Here at the Cloud house, even our dogs were laughing at that one.

Suuuuuure they've asked them to stay out.

I think it's more likely that Liddy's campaign has been told not to expect much from the national Republican groups. The Republicans have 22 seats to defend against some great Democratic recruits. The Dems only have 12 seats to hold on to. I'd say THAT is why Liddy is begging calling for the DSCC to stay out of her race.

As if.

It's more than likely

it is a certainty. Her race will not be targeted by the DSCC. She might get a little bit of help from groups here and there, but I think the National Republican groups see the writing on the wall. NC is going to be a bolder shade of blue.
