Wow is all I can say. Why there should always be an opponent even if the race is unwinable.

We could see if Reuben Stoddard is available to replace Crisco in the runoff?

Maybe not. Probably not in fact. But it is extremely strange that with the huge push for Gay that is blotting out Obamacare’s Dem failure...just seems rather interesting timing for a death on the campaign trail.

So many ‘interesting’ things seem to happen around name democrats when power is sought that it is hard to think that sometimes weird crap happens for no reason in particular.

Was he at or any where near Ft. Macy park after he died? Was a former first “lady” hiding in the bushes? no, not either of the Georges.

I agree with the suspicions…and I think they are well founded….just not applicable in this case.

It’s not beyond the gaystapo to do something like this….but this guy was old and was going to concede. Now, if something happens to Renee Ellmers….well, then……that’s different.

He fell on multiple bullets, an axe and a hammer...
but it was the fall out of the 2nd storey window that finally killed him.

In other news, I hear that figure skater is going to run for president in 2016. You know the one, Johnny Weir, who is now media darling. He even helped broadcast the Kentucky Derby the other weekend and wore a most "stylish" hat.

You know what, he's probably going to win. And why not? People like him and will probably vote for him over the tired, washed-up has-been politicians we are likely to run otherwise.

If we are going to become a modern-day Sodom and Gomorrah, might as well take what shortcuts we can and get this painful journey over with already. While we're at it, let's bring Edward Snowden back to the U.S. and make him Secretary of Defense.

“I am stunned and deeply saddened by Keith Crisco’s death,” Aiken said on Monday.
“He was a gentleman, a good and honorable man and an extraordinary public
servant. I was honored to know him.”

Aiken added, “I am suspending all campaign activities as we pray for his family
and friends.”

Better be ‘careful’ there.
No time for manners, politeness or just common decency.

NOW the backers of Crisco will ‘kinda/sorta’ hit and point fingers at the person ‘making nice’ and before we know it, the ‘significant other’ will be pressed into service, using the ‘opponents’ nice words to campaign against him....

LIBS/DEMS don’t miss a shot at Victory....

And “WE” have the unmitigated gall to ‘question’ other countries methods of voting etc....

Brad Crone, a political strategist and longtime friend of Crisco’s, said he had
just spoken to Crisco Monday morning. They were finalizing plans to announce on
Tuesday morning that he would concede the election to Clay Aiken.

you can’t show kindness, be courteous, or decent to a Democrat. Everytime you do either of these, you will live to regret it. It will come back and bite you in the ass. Democrats have two driving desires: control and power. And will do any and everything they can to achieve it. For them, results are all that matter. Rules are made to be broken. They have no decency, honor, or principles.

As fabulous as Johnny Weir would be (SARC), he’s too young. He’ll only be 32 in 2016. Shame.
