Skip to comments.Dole's 'godless' ad angers Hagan
Posted on 10/29/2008 9:40:40 AM PDT by NCDragon
State Sen. Kay Hagan says she'll go to court to seek a cease-and-desist order against U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole's campaign if the "godless" TV spot isn't pulled in the next 24 hours.
Hagan, a Democrat, held a press conference this morning with her family and minister at the Presbyterian church in Greensboro where she is an elder and has taught Sunday school.
Hagan's campaign said it had delivered letters to Dole's Raleigh and Salisbury offices and her Washington, D.C., home, giving the campaign 24 hours to pull the ad before Hagan's campaign took legal recourse.
The political ad suggests Hagan is "godless" because she attended a fundraiser in Boston in September at the home of author Wendy Kaminer and her husband, Woody Kaplan, who was on the advisory board of the Godless Americans political action committee and active in a group that promotes "secular" ideas.
The TV ad features an announcer saying "Godless Americans and Kay Hagan. She hid from cameras. Took godless money. What did Hagan promise in return?"
Hagan and Dole are in a tight race for the Senate race.

She’s a Democrat. She’s pro-abortion. Thus, she’s not godless. She worships Moloch.
“The political ad suggests Hagan is “godless” because she attended a fundraiser in Boston in September at the home of author Wendy Kaminer and her husband, Woody Kaplan, who was on the advisory board of the Godless Americans political action committee and active in a group that promotes “secular” ideas.”
Exactly. If the shoe fits this DemocRat should wwear it.
But like most DemocRats, her view of the First Amendment is highly selective.
Hmm...great ad by Liddy Dole.
Dems hate the truth. Dems threaten legal action whenever the truth gets out. I hope Dole sticks with this attack. And frankly, as a member of a mainline protestant church (Episcopal), I can tell you that Hagan’s membership of another such denomination, by itself, isn’t really that much of a defense.
Those dang facts. Always getting in the way of liberal lies.
This is reminiscent of the idiotic ad we have running locally that says Shane Massey is against the Ten Commandments and the Lord’s Prayer. I’ll be so happy when this election season is over.
Good for Liddy. Jesse Helms would be proud. Shame her husband never fought like this.
shalom b'SHEM Yah'shua
Hagen suck it up.
Boy could I make a great ad out of this one. Does Hagen teach in Sunday School that it's OK to murder itty bitty babies before they're born?
Yeah...LOL!...Jesse was the direct mail King.
Last week of the election, Jim Hunt would be hit, last week of the election Harvey Gantt...hit again..
Bout time Liddy took a lesson.
That teach Sunday School bit was the same pablum that Hillary Clinton used to trot out, if those folks are teaching Sunday School, Lord help us all.
I hope the computer problems went by without too much pain!
I say Amen with you!
If you don't want to be linked to Atheists, terrorists,
felons, and race-baiting anti-americans, don't hang
around with them.
Pretty simple really.
If you don't want these kind of questions asked, stop
taking money from Anti-christ-like kinda peoples!”
I like this comment from the source site.
Direct mail is unfair. Most rat voters can’t read or don’t have permanent addresses.
All I can say is, “WOW!!!”
This is a devastating and simply GREAT TV ad:
If you don't want to be called 'godless' don't associate with and accept money from self professed 'godless' folks.
Didn’t Hagan leap into contention in this race by running an ad about Dole not spending enough time in the state? So why is she having fundraisers in Boston with atheists? Not enough actual supporters in the state to get her elected?
My thoughts exactly; a little bit of Carter Wrenn and Jesse Helms lives on in North Carolina...good for Senator Dole.
Yes, the mainline Presbyterian church is a church in name only. One can be ordained a minister in the denomination without having to believe in the Bible. It’s sad.
There are some Bible-believing Presbyterian denominations, though, so remember that when you hear the MSM talk about Presbyterians. They’re not all the same.
How is Liddy doing in the polls?
Very hard hitting but fair. Hopefully it plays well with undecideds. This is a tight race but I think Dole takes it by a hair.
Liddy and the Godless one are neck and neck, last poll by Civitas had it 42-41 Hagin...with undecideds growing not shrinking.
Some of the oldest churches around Charlotte are Presbytarian. One down the road from me dates from the late 1700’s. I am pretty sure that one is Bible believing, and from what I’ve heard, so is Hagan’s. That said, good ad Liddy.
A woman elder- there you have it!
We have become a compromised society - we allowed the left/communists to infiltrate our schools, churches and govt all under the disguise of diversity. We are in for a very tough future - no matter who wins. Pray, pray and pray - also buy guns and ammo because the left will be emboldened enact the policies of hate beyond what I believe we could never believe.
Otherwise, it runs the table until election day.....let the chips fall where they may!
That would be a great follow up ad...if Liddy is told to pull this one......
What would be the grounds for such a court order? Did Hagan not go to the fundraiser?
I'm no lawyer but it seems to me that Hagan's proper response would be to put up her own damn ad and quit acting like a two year old.
Look at Barack...dont'call me Hussein....don't make fun of my ears......BWAHAHAHAHAHA!
Democrats get SO P!SSED when you point out the truth about them.
Yes, you’re communist/socialist/fascists.
Yes, you’re godless and wicked.
Yes, you support infanticide.
Now now. Rodents do have addresses:
c/o Park Bench
c/o LBJ Memorial Cemetery, Plot 666
Ima N. Sayne
c/o Karl Childers Nervous Hospital
This is national party politics...
Your team is known to play more than a little hardball...
Bring a bat and a glove....
Wear a cup
If this ad were backfiring, Kay Hagan wouldn’t be taking this action. Clearly, it’s inflicting damage on her chances.
Here is the ad in question:
I’ve seen some obnoxious judicial rulings in the last several decades, but I’m curious to know what legal theory Hagan would use to bring suit against Dole and seek a cease-and-desist order? Any judge who might grant one in this situation has to be a judicial “activist” to the extreme.
Either that or Dole is trying to stem a slide. Let’s hope the former. I always get worried when I see last minute “shockers” - like when Allen started attacking Webb on his books in the last week.
That might be a positive thing, because I suspect much of the “Block Vote” won’t have the patience to wait in line or the forethought to vote early.
I guess Northern VA liked Webb’s i*ce*tu*us ga* po*n.
Now who wouldn't want to move into this dream home ? Ain't that a honey ?
Incestuous gay pedophiliac porn. A real low-rent Nabokov that makes the average “Dear Penthouse” letter writer look like Fyodor Dostoyevsky.
The question is....will it turn people off Dole? I hope not, but sometimes these things tend to do the opposite if too strong.
Yes, it will. The woman claiming to be godly is knowingly committing false witness. She's LYING.
If that's not a turnoff to undecided voters, I don't know what is. Thanks to Liddy, dems might get a veto proof majority.
Dole should be ashamed of herself, but I suppose she sold her soul for power a long time ago.
oops. Can I say that? Am I lying? Bearing false witness? ...........
Dole is right.
And most of the Presbyterians that I’ve known are quite Godless. What’s her gripe?
Then why have they not excommunicated her? Her beliefs are not Biblical.
How so? Sounds like Dole is correct.
