Election Day Post #8 - Good For You North Carolina!

Kay Hagen has defeated Elizabeth Dole!!

by a wide margin!!!

Come January there will NOT be a Dole or a Bush in elected office in this country. Now that is progress.

My hearfelt congrats to Ms Hagen - who took an incredible amount of abuse and character assasination from the rabid witch that is Elizabeth Dole.

It occured to me that not everyone knows about what happened in this race. Campbell explains it best.

I'm went and hid for a while and now that I'm back they are calling Pennsylvania for Obama. Yippee! Good for NC on the Dole issue. She deserved to be beaten given how she campaigned.

Dianne said...

raven - I know!!
Dole has been a waste her entire career. she looks proper and professional but she is nothing more than a political accessory who landed a good gig. her behavior lately is downright disgusting.

Back from work. Took in a little election coverage on the TV and now I'm surfing a few blogs.

Usually when we say an end of an era, it's a sad moment in history. This would NOT be one of those times.

Be back later

jeff - have you seen the t-shirts that say 'end of an error' ;)
we were talking about you before, about how the way your state votes is so convenient and civilized.

Jeff B said...

It is pretty darned convenient. About a month before the election the ballot arrives in the mail. You can fill it out at you leisure and either put a stamp on it and drop it in the mail, or drop it off at in one of several official ballot drop sites.

No muss, no fuss

I love it!

And my overjoyed response to every victory tonight has been WOOHOO!!! I was on the phone with my BFF from NC when that news came in. You could probably hear us down the block!

Peace - D

Dianne said...

riverpoet - I was WOOHOOing all on my own when they called it, it is a race I've been following.

Jay said...

I've never seen anything as shameful as Elizabeth Dole running that ad calling her opponent "Godless" and having some women imitate Hagen's voice screaming "There is no God!"

That was unfreakingbelievable.

Travis said...

I just heard it! They called Ohio for Obama! That's the first flip.

I just got a shiver up my spine.

Mahala said...

I'm shocked, amazed and elated that this.. could happen.. is happening :)

Diane Mandy said...

YYEEYY!!! Libby Dole deserved to have her can kicked!

Dianne said...

jay - and when Dole was exposed she refused to apologize, she basically shrugged

travis - I just moved your comment to a post, it gave me shivers

mahala - I'm watching people weeping and dancing at Ebenezer Baptist Church

diane - she got exactly what she deserved ;)

Matt-Man said...

I can't believe a GAWD-Less woman beat the lovely Mizz Dole. HAhahahahaha. Cheers Di!!

kenju said...

I was just as interested in the outcome of this race as I was that of president. I am so glad that Dole was defeated.
