In God We Trust (To Save Our Floundering Campaign)



Wow -- just, wow.

This is what Liddy Dole is being forced to stoop to save her senate seat: basically accusing her opponent -- who looks to be ready to whip Dole's ass next week -- of being "godless."

I wish I had a punchline for this, but it sort of makes its own gravy.

By the way, that last voice you hear in the spot -- the woman shouting "There is no God!"? Dole's playing that up as if it's the voice of her opponent, when in fact it isn't.

Sneaky and fucking stupid.

Yup, sounds like just another day at the office for today's Republicans.

When you enter into NC from VA it's like McCain and Dole campaign sign Hell. Talk about Godless.

Don't forget to mention that Liddy's opponent was also a sunday school teacher, so the charges of 'godless'-ness get a little more ridiculous.

Tuesday can't come soon enough. GOP Epic FAIL-arity abounds!

Damn. Watching that is fuck-me-in-the-eyes infuriating.

Here's to Dole getting her ass trampled.

I wonder- Which will the Republicans run out of first? Bullets, or their own feet to shoot themselves in?

Hey, CHEZ! haha I didnt use that word.......

Is Lee Atwater's ghost running Libby Dole's campaign? This woman is desperate.

It's crap like this, voter suppression, and their nearly total lack of concern for the regular person that makes me despise the Republic party. yeah, I know, the Democrats aren't all perfect angels, but on average most of them seem to give a damn and try to help people.

I hope next Tuesday is the electoral equivalent of cleaning the Augean stables.

I look forward to a rout on election day for one simple reason, getting rid of those that have so obviously lost their way.

I case they need reminding; the way is serving the American people, not themselves.

Fuck you, Elizabeth Dole. Fuck you for calling a Sunday school teacher an atheist. Fuck you for suggesting there's something wrong with being atheist. Fuck you for carpetbagging from Kansas to North Carolina in the first place. To summarize: fuck you.

Recently Colin Powell stood up for the idea that even IF Obama is Muslim, that isn't necessarily a charge against his character. As an atheist I wish someone would attack Dole on this add on the basis that even IF Kay Hagan were an atheist, how does that disqualify her? Why is that a charge against her ability to be in Congress? I predict no leading political voice outside the atheist community will make this point, now or for a looong time. For what it's worth, and as an indication of this, it is illegal for me to hold public office on the grounds of my lack of belief here in Maryland.

Trust me, as a Raleigh native, I can say that she's catching so much hell for this ad around these parts. Even the repubs in the town are pretty disgusted by it.

We're finally an honest to god battleground state and I couldn't be happier. I was one of 25000 people packed into the Obama rally yesterday, but granted I'm only speaking for capital city dwellers. mack up there is right about the abundance of McCain/Palin signs in the more rural parts of the state. It's pretty terrifying.

I believe that the voice if of former American Atheists president Ellen Johnson from the ill-fated Godless March on Washington in 2002. I could be wrong, but she's one of the only atheists who ever gets her voice recorded.

Thanks for this post, as a hereticinfidelnonbeliever I'm glad I'm not alone in being made nauseous by this. I posted my own response to this here:http://nearearth.wordpress.com/2008/10/30/elizabeth-dole-go-to-hell/

So worshipping Allah is OK in her books. Just those damn atheists.
