Ghost of Jesse Helms

Bullshit plays in North Carolina. Jesse Helms proved that, may he burn in hell, with obvious racist appeals against Harvey Gantt. Now, Elizabeth Dole wants to tar her opponent as an atheist.

The problem for Dole is that a black man can't really deny being black, but a church elder and Sunday school teacher can make a pretty convincing argument that she's not an atheist.

This just shows how low a losing Republican will go, even one who has a soft image.

The proper response is to say, "I'm sure Elizabeth Dole thinks of herself as a Christian, but after this, the people will have to decide whether she is capable of living up to Christian principles."
