Where in the World are Vernon's Donors: Beijing, Hawaii

The prize for the furthest traveled to this reunion goes to an octogenarian couple in Beijing, China who retired there from Illinois in 1988 and haven’t looked back since. As the husband writes in his website:

China living is easy, a slower-paced living. It's a lot like turning the clock back a number of years.

No kidding! Turning the clock back is what Vernon wants to do with a number of issues here in NC on the other side of the globe from Beijing, literally and figuratively. They have given money to Vernon before, giving them reunion status. Why would they want to give money to a Congressional race in NC? Well, clue number 1. is this quote, below the fold:

I'm currently reading...
Mostly conservative news from the net

That ‘splains everything Lucy. Vernon spreads his vitriol thickest on the internet to rustle up money from outside NC to run his mediocre ads in NC. I’ve seen Vernon is running a fireside-chat style video on TV in District 13 which I haven’t seen on the internet. At first I thought I was watching a SNL skit with Tracy Morgan but he managed to make it identifiable as Vernon garbage with a shot of the second plane hitting the burning World Trade Center. If memory serves me correctly Republicans were in charge on that watch.

Meanwhile Vernon’s recent sex ad has been pulled from YouTube due to copyright infringement though it is still accessible at Google Video which is surprising given that Google has just dropped $1.65 billion on YouTube. Go rate it as pornographic and see it drop off the face of the net.

MediaMatters rips into Fox News for repeatedly showcasing offensive Republican ads and candidates with practically no Democratic or progressive responses and dissects Robinson’s ad in particular.

Fox News programs in recent weeks have aired false and misleading Republican campaign advertisements attacking Democrats or Democratic congressional candidates and have hosted guests to defend the attacks, smears, and falsehoods put forth in the ads. But in all but one of the segments about the ads, Fox News failed to air a counter-ad by a Democratic candidate or host any progressive or Democrat to respond to the smears in the advertisements; the other aired only part of a Democratic ad and did so without sound.

Meanwhile the absurdity and obscenity has been picked up by British newspapers such as the Independent

There is a tendency in all US election campaigns to talk about sexual morality rather than weighty matters of state. But this yearseems to mark a new low.
Nowhere has the tone gone lower than in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, where a Republican candidate called Vernon Robinson has accused his opponent, incumbent congressman Brad Miller, of wanting to import homosexuals to the United States and spending tax-payer dollars on filthy scientific studies on sex.
:::::
All this opprobrium stemmed from a single vote by Mr Miller on appropriations for the National Institutes of Health. In a campaign mailer, the unabashedly homophobic Mr Robinson even sought to drop hints questioning his adversary's sexuality, referring to him pointedly as "childless". Mr Miller has since pointed out that the reason he is childless is that his wife had a hysterectomy 20 years ago.

Note to editor: Winston-Salem is not in District 13.

A Miller Robinson “feisty debate” will air on WRAL this Saturday evening at 7.30pm as reported by the News and Observer.

Runner-up in the furthest travelled Vernon sweepstakes is a contractor in Hawaii who said aloha to $1,000. She’ll never see that again. May be hoping for a piece of that border wall contract but they way things are going with the economy the wall will have to be built by Mexicans so it’ll be kind of hard to keep them on one side. Click on the hula girl to send a sweet message to Vernon.

Following up on our other Pacific Rim donors Vernon’s recent FEC report shows he managed to scare another donation out of Alaska retiree George Benesch and one from the Santee, California trailer park retiree, fighting us here so they don’t have to fight them there.

Beautiful work, Greg.

I would be very funny except for the fact that it's about Vermin. He makes my skin crawl.

Brad so better beat this guy

Otherwise i might lose faith in the masses :'(

Our children need to know that some people fought back, when others collaborated.

Wow

anyone who sends Vernon money should be forced to spend time with him. They shouldn't be allowed to get away to foreign countries or distant states.

Debate

Poor vermin. He is complaining that the WRAL debate was three liberals against one conservative. He also attacked the Episcopal church where Brad and David Crabtree both attend. Don't you know David Crabtree just loves him. This can't end soon enough.

I get letters...

Apparently when you go to Vermin's website and lodge a complaint you are automatically added to his campaign newsletter list... soooooooo I've been receiving his newsletters ever since I visited his site and left a few choice words concerning the "sex" ad. I can't believe these are for real...authored by Jim Longworth. Here's a sample:

It is possible that Miller will defeat Robinson on Nov. 7, but if so, Brad's behavior of late, coupled with a less than stellar performance in Congress, will leave the door wide open for a strong candidate (like Guilford County Sheriff BJ Barnes) to send Miller packing in 2008.

So, am I angry that Miller called me a jackleg? Not really. You see, I'd much rather be a jackleg TV host (which I don't think I am), than a jackleg congressman. That's because my behavior only reflects on me, but Brad's behavior reflects on all of us.

I mean, it's like high school stuff. No wonder he must go global for donors.

Conscious evolution, it's what turns me on. There's got to be a difference between right and wrong.-DTB

You just CAN'T make this stuff up

The big question would be, why would someone who wasn't even from NC, much less NC-13, would even care about what happens here? Someone that decided that a Communist country was far more suited to their lifestyle than their own? Is this guy still a US citizen? Maybe ol' Vermin is just reaching out to the communists now.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only UNPATRIOTIC and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public.

Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed frequently, and for the same reasons.

Good one, Jim

Vermin the Red.

Irony anyone?

Doesn't it seem ironic that these days, Dems and Democratic states are refered to as 'Blue' and GOP states are refered to as 'Red'? All this after the Reich Wing's 'Red Scare' and 'Better dead than Red' meme of the past 50 years. But it may be quite fitting considering the actions of the fringe right. Sure, you may debate if Chimpy and The Dick's actions are communist or fascist in application, (I'll go with fascist) but still, the irony is there.
