Cook Political Report Moves NC-08 Race

I wouldn't normally write a one or two sentence diary, so please use this as an open thread.

Charlie Cook has now moved NC-08 from solid Republican to likely Republican.

Here are the changes:

• HOUSE RATINGS CHANGE:

CA-04 Doolittle Likely Republican to Lean Republican
CA-11 Pombo Likely Republican to Lean Republican
CO-04 Musgrave Likely Republican to Lean Republican
FL-13 Open Lean Republican to Toss Up
KY-02 Lewis Solid Republican to Lean Republican
MN-06 Open Lean Republican to Toss Up
NV-02 Open Likely Republican to Lean Republican
NY-26 Reynolds Solid Republican to Toss Up
NC-08 Hayes Solid Republican to Likely Republican
PA-04 Hart Solid Republican to Likely Republican
PA-07 Weldon Lean Republican to Toss Up
PA-10 Sherwood Lean Republican to Toss Up
WA-08 Reichert Lean Republican to Toss Up
WI-08 Open Lean Republican to Toss Up

That says it all right there. I'm beside myself!

When I emailed these folks

they made it clear that money was a huge deal. If Kissell gets a huge DCCC bolus, then we will be in the race.

Jesus Swept ticked me off. Too short. I loved the characters and then POOF it was over.

A huge

You know...

I use that word so much that I never thought about it being a medical-only term. I feel confident, as me ol' Da wud say, that the Dictionary is wrong.

I'm going to be down your way next weekend, email me your digits for schizzitz.

Open thread crashing :)

Friends ... Thursday evening I sat with a Clayton family for four hours, listening to their story of success turned to tragedy turned to fight turned to steely-spined resolve. They have taken their troubles and decided they would not sit by and watch what happened to them and to hundreds of other families in NC, happen to one more person.

If any of you have heard of the Ansley family (they've been successful in getting their story in local papers) you'll know that these folks have been through Hades (the American Healthcare system) and back in the last year and a half. If you're not familiar with these good folks, you can catch up at their website.

They have been flatly refused and rebuffed by their own representatives on this matter. BlueNC can give them some much needed love and support today. Please, to go to their webpage (linked above), read and research as much as you need to, and sign their petition to the General Assembly to sponsor and pass the "North Carolina Medical Protection Act" or "MPA." This bill would protect a person's primary residence from seizure to satisfy an extraordinary and unpayable medical debt after catastrophic illness or injury.

Thanks to all, and apologies for the crash. :)

"They took all the trees and put them in a tree museum Then they charged the people a dollar 'n a half just to see 'em. Don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you've got till it's gone? They paved paradise and put up a parking lot."

Sorta off topic, but does

Sorta off topic, but does anyone know the numbers right now for NC-13? I know we shouldn't have anything to worry about, but, can't take anything for granted these days.

To announce that there must be no criticism of the President, or that we are to stand by the President, right or wrong, is not only UNPATRIOTIC and servile, but it is morally treasonable to the American public.

Politicians are like diapers. They should be changed frequently, and for the same reasons.

I haven't heard anything

I'm sure they can't be too close, but if Brad has them and they aren't close, then Vernon might step up the rhetoric and smears even more than he has.If Vernon has them and he isn't even close, then people will just dismiss him and he would hurt his fundraising.

God help us if they are close. That would show how truly stoopid North Carolina voters are.
