3. Although, NC is a military-friendly state.
despite the efforts of our two "special" senators. :eyes: But, I have to give a big :toast: toast to Liddy Dole for her incompetancy at her post as NRSC chair!
In fact, she's done such a good job for our side, that i may be forced to give little ol' liddy a standing ovation for her work in that department. :applause:
I mean, who would ever have found people as wonderful as Katherine Harris to run for US senate? :rofl:

2. Our two senators are rounding out the bottom.
Jim Inhofe: D-
Tom Coburn: F

Ask me if I'm surprised. Worthless, the two of them!

4. speaking as a south carolinian vet
god only knows what (drama queen) graham and (do nothing) demint think.
i think demint's base is the evangelical white organizations that abound in the south.
graham will take any attention he can scrounge.
