More Cracks in the N.C. Republican Party

Catching up on news from late last week ... another big resignation from the Republican Party State Executive Committee over the ouster of Robert Morgan. Harold Brubaker, the only Republican in the state House of Representatives to lead that body in the 20th century, resigned from the state executive committee to protest the treatment of close ally Morgan.

The only thing not showing stress marks on the Republican right was Liddy Dole's fearless power helmet of hair. She showed up at the battleship North Carolina in Wilmington on Tuesday May 25th for what was supposed to be a major address on Iraq and found in attendance only three battleship memorial board members, a spouse, and a couple of reporters. But according to the N & O, she bravely performed a 30-minute harangue in the 92-degree heat to a sea of empty chairs, showing how even the lowliest junior senator from North Carolina can "stay the (stupid) course!"
