whats for lunch

Here is Tuesday’s lunch buffet. Dig in.

The Greensboro News and Record has an interesting editorial about campaign finance reform that includes Rep. Pricey Harrison’s plea for public financing to end the insane money chase. Scott Mooneyham is calling for new leadership for the State Health Plan. Hard to argue with that.

The folks at Public Policy Polling finally have some not so bad news for Governor Perdue and they continue their useful updates about who is filing for office.

Gary Pearce has another take on Sarah Palin at Talking About Politics. On the health care front, check out Liberal Values to read about how Republicans used to support many of the provisions in the health care reform proposals they now oppose.

If you are following the shenanigans of the Gang of Five majority on the Wake County Board of Education, check out this post at Watauga Watch about Gang of Fiver Deborah Prickett.

And last but not least, in case you missed it—Joe the Plumber, who spoke in Raleigh this summer, is apparently now Joe the Bitter.
