Posted November 23, 2010

— The State Board of Elections on Tuesday certified the results of an election that saw Republicans gain ground across North Carolina.

The certification came less than a week after a recount in the 2nd Congressional District led Democratic Rep. Bob Etheridge to concede his race to Republican candidate Renee Ellmers.

    "Congratulations to the PINHEADS who were the "brains" behind that idiotic sign at the intersection of 401/421 depicting Pelosi-as-puppet-master holding Bob's strings. "

    That was brilliant! After hearing him speak last weekend - it was all about him and not the people. "Just look at all the good I did" yeah, but when you do bad things on top of it the ends DO justify the means.

    Congratulations to the PINHEADS who were the "brains" behind that idiotic sign at the intersection of 401/421 depicting Pelosi-as-puppet-master holding Bob's strings. Too bad the people who were targeted by that sign are even allowed to vote. ;)

    Indeed you did! It was a crushing defeat of socialism....1500 or so votes out of around 200,000. Yep, a mandate of the masses if there ever WAS one. ;)

    Deflection: see also, "Red Herring"...defined as "any diversion intended to distract attention from the main issue"...usually consisting of weak, lame excuses, designed to protect irrational, sacred cows". ;)
