Here’s a tidbit from the N&O I found amusing, it seems we (NC) have a lot to look forward to in 2010.
Karl Rove, the chief strategist for President George W. Bush, will be coming to Raleigh next month to help raise money for the re-election campaign of Republican U.S. Sen. Richard Burr.
Although details have not been announced, Rove agreed to be the headliner at a fundraiser Jan. 28 in Raleigh. The event is being put together by Louis DeJoy, a Greensboro businessman who was state finance chairman for the McCain-Palin ticket in 2008. Also helping out is Jim Cain, a Raleigh lawyer and former U.S. ambassador to Denmark who was also a Bush fundraiser.
In addition to being closely associated with Bush, Rove also helped recruit both Burr and former U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole to run for the Senate.
Turd Blossom’s (Bush’s nickname for Rove) advise didn’t do Dole any favors once her “Godless” ad aired, I have no doubt Burr’s pro-rape , anti-middle class Senate voting record will have the same effect on his 2010 re-election bid. Neither party has much to brag about these days, so I guess us “value voters” can only hope for a candidate in 2010 that has as little connection with the Christian hypocrisy of Rove and his corporate cohorts as possible. And yes I’m dreaming.
