Ambassador Joe Wilson shows his True Colors at Kissell Fundraiser

This past Saturday, Ambassador Joe Wilson came to Charlotte, NC to support Larry Kissell in his second bid to unseat Robin Hayes in North Carolina's 8th Congressional District.

I had not had the pleasure of meeting Joe Wilson prior to Saturday's event and was honestly expecting the man to be just a wee bit of a stuffed shirt. I found instead, a man who is generous, patient and funny. He did not leave the event until he had met each person who desired an introduction, stood for pictures with all waiting in line and signed every spare scrap of paper, every book and every Creative Loafing shoved in front of him. That's quite a chore when the total attendance is over 200 people.

What's your line?

With so many new community members lately, I thought I'd front-page this at the top for a couple of days. this was originally posted back in September.


Over the past few days I've read things written by people here that surprise me. Not like 'oh my goodness' surprise. More like 'wow, I didn't know that' surprise. Which makes me wonder who you all are. Especially now that the NCGOP chair says you're nothing but hate-mongering extremists.

Care to explain yourself?

From the Fayetteville paper

Richard Moore, state treasurer and Democratic candidate for governor, said his campaign goal is “to be as gentlemanly as my mother expects me to be” and to talk about substantive issues. Given last week’s exchange with Moore’s likely Democratic opponent — Lt. Gov. Beverly Perdue — one wonders what his mother thinks.
