Bloggers at NC-11 Convention

Posted by Thunder Pig on April 30, 2007

A couple of bloggers from the other side of the aisle attended the NC-11 GOP Convention Saturday, and here are their reports of the event:

Report filed at Scrutiny Hooligans:

Karl Rove and the North Carolina 11th District Republican Convention

They embrace a culture of defeat…death, and we have to fight them there, so we don’t have to fight them here.” – Karl Rove, in Hendersonville on Saturday, April 28, talking about Democrats or terrorists. I’m not sure which.

179 old white delegates gathered at West Henderson High School to hold their annual 11th district Republican Convention. Every county in the district had a section, and the empty half of the auditorium held the press, the non-delegates, and the Hooligans. Clay County didn’t bother sending anyone at all, though an imaginary source told me that they stayed away because Rove’s pheromones cause Clay county women to swoon and Clay County men to feel desperate and insecure.

The same article was cross posted at BlueNC.

And they scored an interview with Jeff Hunt. Cross-posted at BlueNC.

Here’s a little open secret about blogs: most of the truly interesting inside baseball stuff happens in the comments section, so pay attention.
