Shu’s very bad, horrible Election Day.

North Carolina has an abundant supply of people calling themselves “political consultants” who really don’t have much of a clue.  Unfortunately, the NCGOP has more than its fair share of that surplus.  I, for one, am incredibly frustrated by quality candidates going down in flames…

Soros, Lies & Press Releases.

Cease and desist.  Those are the golden, melodic, magical words being directed toward the congressional campaign of Indian casino lobbyist Scott Dacey by the reelection campaign of congressman Walter Jones.  What’s this all about, you ask? On Sunday, Scott Dacey (who I hear lobbies on…

NC-03: Dacey’s own #’s show a loss to Jones AND somebody named UNDECIDED.

There is an interesting strategy being put forth by NCGOPe types this cycle.  Put a lot of bad news out there, and demand MO’ MONEY. We saw Matt Bales with the NC House GOP caucus doing it.   Now here comes Indian casino lobbyist (and GOP…
