Top of the morning

Here is a telling line from Rob Christensen’s NC Notebook from the GOP convention in Tampa, about the brief speeches given by three North Carolina congressional candidates on Tuesday.

How many N.C. delegates were there to cheer them on was unclear; many went to a brunch on a yacht being hosted by AREVA, a nuclear power and energy company.

At least they have their priorities straight.

    Really Frank? More pseudo-science from Heartland. The lunacy of Herman Cain and a political opportunist who lost in Alabama and switched parties and states, a real scumbag who’s only motivation is lining his own pockets. He should fit in with GOP.
