North Carolina, C'mon And Raise Up!
After years of neglect, North Carolina, (and no, that does not include its red-headed stepchild, South Carolina) finally gets its moment in the spotlight.
Suddenly, North Carolina is good for more than just college basketball, textiles, and tobacco.
Thanks to a little something called the Electoral College, North Carolina's 15 electoral votes have made the Tar Heel state a critical flash point in this year's presidential elections.
Despite its slutty past reputation as a Republican bitch-state, North Carolina is suddenly up-for-grabs, with McCain and Obama locked in a statistical dead heat just two weeks before election day.
Evidence on the ground during my recent trip confirmed what the latest polls suggest: The fine citizens of North Carolina are very confused.
They thought they knew themselves.
Good, upstanding small-town folk who love God, guns, and the GOP. Not elitist liberals who hate America and think change comes in the form of a charmingly brilliant, half-black secret Muslim Socialist who says crazy things like "unity" "progress" and "truth."
Uh-Oh, this could only mean one thing: the Devil gone to NC!
