The High Country Press was the only local paper to give in-depth coverage of last Saturday's Republican County Convention, but we can't find Ron Fitzwater's article on-line. In it, Congresswoman Virginia Foxx's keynote address is given extensive space, including her hilarious whining about the nasty ole Democrats who are keeping her in Washington five days a week, when she'd rather be home LISTENING to her constituents.
[Democrats] don't want to hear what you have to say. They want to deal with the lobbyists and special interest groups. Well, Republicans take the opposite point of view. We think the wisdom of the world is out in our districts, and we want to be out here.

Cracked us up. When's the last time you heard about The Madam actually listening to anyone who doesn't already agree with her? And far be it from her to pay attention to lobbyists and special interest groups. The PACs that give her the big bucks are surely not treated as coldly as she treats Watauga County.

In the Alterno World of Foxx, she apparently WON her home county by over a thousand votes, rather than the other way around.
