Foxx Hunt, Cont.

We're hearing from Republican friends that they're receiving live phone calls urging them to get out to vote early for Madam Foxx. Apparently, the Foxx campaign is seeing the same numbers we're seeing from early voting ... which don't look so good for the Madam (just based on the number of Republicans showing up to vote early vs. the number of Democrats).

She might have been tempted to use robo-calling, since there's no way a handful of College Republicans being paid minimum wage can ever make all the calls she needs. But she can't use robo-calling without once again revealing the utter hypocrisy of her politics. Why? She came out early in 2005 signing on to legislation to greatly limit the use of robo-calling. (But if anyone gets a robo-call from her, we hope you'll let us know!)

The Winston-Salem Journal is not the only 5th Dist. newspaper to go after her. She's "cashing in" like Boss Hogg, according to the Statesville Record & Landmark. She's "Representative Clueless" to the Elkin Tribune. Foxx is "a sycophant," according to the Tribune editorialist. Also "tone deaf." She's spent two years "throwing good votes after bad policy" in her slavish attempt to rubberstamp whatever El Presidente wanted and to suck up to more powerful lawmakers by spreading her money around like barnyard manure.

Yep, that's the Foxx we know. Proud, we are, that others are also seeing through her.

For example, her supposed support for the armed forces. If you've got the stomach for it, scroll through all her accumulated press releases and see how many are pious protestations about support for the military ... like this one and this one and this one.

Empty, easy symbolic gestures, most of them. The Iraq & Afghanistan Veterans of America (IAVA) sees her ACTUAL performance on behalf of military men and women and grades her as barely passing ... a big ole fat "D."

Wouldn't it be something to get her outta that House after two insufferable years? And actually get some representation.
