These have been dark and stormy days for Democrats.
Every day, the headlines bring more gloom. Ruffin Poole takes the Fifth. Mike Easley hires Joe Cheshire. Tony Rand is accused of insider trading. Marc Basnight is forced to defend his political and physical health. Bev Perdue’s ratings are low. R.C. Soles faces trouble. David Hoyle is stepping down. Health care reform is in trouble. Obama’s polls are down.
John Edwards is rated a bigger disappointment than Tiger Woods, for Pete’s sake.
But now comes a bright sunbeam of hope and cheer.
Bernie Reeves may be the Republican candidate against Brad Miller!
Yes, there is a Santa Claus.
Run, Bernie, run. The comic relief will be welcome.
