The Temp

In a super-secret meeting in Greensboro today, Linda Daves beat out Guilford County GOP Chairman Marcussssssss and state Senator Andrew Brock of Mocksville for the chairman of the NCGOP. Fighting hard for a job that no one in their right mind would want, Daves won the dubious honor behind closed doors. She'll be top-dog until the whole GOP coven meets in its spring ritual, at which point Lizzie Dull and Dick Brrrrr will have exerted their (choke) considerable influence to annoint some rich white guy to head things up.

The Greensboro News and Record has the story.

The meeting of the party's executive committee -- comprised of elected officials, local party chairmen and others elected at large -- began shortly after 1 p.m. behind closed doors, with reporters excluded from the room. At about 3 p.m. the votes had been counted and a short meeting between Daves, Brock, Kindley and a handful of other party officials took place. They then returned to the room, and Kindley and Brock asked the executive committee to elect Daves "by acclimation," a voice vote meant to show unity behind their party's choice. Only two dissenting voices could be heard through an open door.

After the meeting, Daves said she was focused on positioning the party for the 2008 elections. "I don't feel any pressure to perform or make people like me," she said. "The pressure I feel is to move the party forward."

Yay! Another NCGOP figurehead who feels no pressure to perform. We like this.

Kindley said that Daves will be under "huge amounts of pressure" in the next few months. "One of the questions I kept getting asked was, 'How much money are you going to raise over the next six months to show you can do it,' " Kindley said. "She has a very thin string she's swinging on right now."

Kindley said that he planned to run again for chairman in the spring, assuming his wife gives him the go-ahead. He said that he planned to leave his post as Guilford County chairman, which he has held since 2001.

It doesn't get any better than this. Chairman Marcussssss is a certifiable homophobic wacko who is so embarrassed by his own rantings that his own blog has mysteriously disappeared. But apparently he's not too embarrassed to be seen with the Idiot in Chief and his Stepford Wife in this photo on the UNC-Asheville alumni site.

The power elite in the NCGOP don't much like the idea of a ex-school teacher like Daves running things as they gear up for another ass-kicking in 2008. And they definitely don't want Chairman Marcussssss holding forth in any kind of leadership role. Which means Daves will sink like a rock over the next six months.

Here's why: All the rich guys in the Party of Greed will be taking their cues from Dull, Brrrr and Art "the Puppetmaster" Pope. So why in hell should any of the heavy rollers actually ante up when Linda Daves comes a-calling? Count on the big money to sit tight until there's a real chairman in place next spring. And yes, you can bet it'll be a man.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Just to point out the obvious, this whole stinky mess provides good insight into how the Party of Greed operates. Say the words "grass roots" and they think Weed-B-Gone. Which is why we are so going to kick their butts again in 2008. They're powered by the moneyed elite. We're powered by people like you.

This is good.

Come to think of it

It's possible Liddy will have a soft spot in her head heart for Daves. After all, they're both in over their heads and they both suck at fundraising.

Hmmmmm.

It was rumor that the two dissenting voices were that of Senator's Liddy Dole and Burr Aids dress as undercover Congressperson's Foxx and Mc Henry.

After the secret internal party meeting, in the interest of party unity, the candiates for party chair move to Wendy's and declared Victory in 2008 come hell or high water. The Reporter for the N&R was stuck with the tab at Wendy's by the candiates when it was reveal that he was the first victim of the GOP fundraiser efforts for 2008.

"by acclimation,"

You mean they just got used to it?

Spell check error or life style choice. You be the judge.

You mean they just got used to it?

Hee. Perhaps it really isn't a spell-check error. Perhaps they really didn't have voice vote and elect her by "acclamation". The status quo is oh so much easier, yes?

Ah, the snark is fine.

Laughing my arse off

Kindley says that Daves is swinging from a "very thin string".....he then goes on to say this as paraphrased by the N&O:

Kindley said that he planned to run again for chairman in the spring, assuming his wife gives him the go-ahead. He said that he planned to leave his post as Guilford County chairman, which he has held since 2001.

I don't know what kind of thin string Daves is swinging from, but Kindley is swinging from Apron strings.

I'm not saying that a spouse shouldn't be consulted before a move like this, but it seems he would have consulted her before throwing his hat in the ring this time. So, what? He only gets to run in six months if he's a vewy good wittle boy?

Robin Hayes lied. Nobody died, but thousands of folks lost their jobs.
