Nastiness and Denial Will Likely Lose Robin Hayes His Seat in NC

Robin Hayes' comments earlier this week were dumb, especially after having heard Minnesota Congresswoman Michele Bachmann's equally crazy-sounding idea to investigate Congress members for suspected anti-Americanism. Hayes' comment that "liberals hate real Americans that work and accomplish and achieve and believe in God" seemed to be a perfect grassroots fundraising opportunity for Hayes' opponent Larry Kissell and A-plus fodder for MSNBC's Keith Olbermann's "Worst Person the the World" designation.

A Salisbury Post editorial said this regarding the misguiding attitude forwarded by the Hayes comment:

We have polarized ourselves into paralysis at the very time we need wise action the most. Liberals, conservatives and moderates will have to work together to surmount the formidable challenges that stand before this country. God help us all.

Adding fuel to his own fire, Hayes publically denied that he'd really meant what he said when he said what he said.

Then, unbelievable and insulting to anyone with a lick of sense, he publically averred that he hadn't denied anything at all.

Hayes has been caught, like a deer in the headlights of the American vehicle, claiming the tires on the vehicle are not moving the vehicle on the same course as the steering wheel - - and the vehicle moves ahead, crushing him just the same.

I have a sneaking suspicion that Larry Kissell will win this race for a Congressional seat in NC-08 on November 4th.
