Liddy Dole Attacks Opponent For Attending Fundraiser With ATHEISTS

Add to Flipboard Magazine.

Here’s a very controversial ad from Liddy Dole in North Carolina, where she will probably lose her Senate seat for being annoying. Oh and look, the exact O.E.D. definition of “desperation” just happens to be this video’s YouTube description: “A new ad from U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Dole attacks Kay Hagan for attending a fundraiser hosted by people tied to an atheist group.” The end of this video asks, “She hid from cameras, took godless money. What did Hagan promise in return?” …to kill Jesus?? [YouTube]

Hey there, Wonkeputians! Shypixel here to remind you to remember our Commenting Rules For Radicals, Enjoy!

  • NewSpence

    The best part, they hired an actress who sounds like Hagen to yell about godlessness.
    The proof that God doesn’t exist? The continuing existence of the human anthrax who created, paid for, and approved this ad.

  • WhatCanBrownDoForYou?

    This video is no longer available. Has it already gone to hell for killing Jesus?

  • Lorax

    Sounds like my kinda candidate. Is it too late to send her the maximum allowable contribution?

  • cal

    CALL DOWN THE WRATH OF JEHOVAH!!!!1!

  • user-of-owls

    I’m guessing when Liddy sees the election results, she might just agree with the last statement in her ad.

  • One Yield Regular

    That’s one for the internet museum of advertising classics.

    What “godless money” did Hagan accept? Euros? Ameros? Cowry shells?

  • FMA

    It’s true. There is no God. If there were a God, she would have incinerated Elizabeth Dole’s ass with a bunch of lightning bolts by now.

  • Norbert

    wow. just wow.

    didn’t Hagan also serve as consigliere to a notorious New York crime family?

  • Texan Bulldoggette

    Pretty soon Liddy will have plenty of time to go back to Kansas & keep Viagra-ingesting Bob happy.

  • funkyj

    And everyone knows atheists are Godless communists who hate America! Just like muslin americans who worship their false god and secretly pray for the USA’s destruction.

  • Woodwards Friend

    KAY HAGEN IS GOING TO KILL GOD!

  • Lazy Media

    [re=156375]One Yield Regular[/re]: Yeah, American moneys is specifically godly. Says it right on the front. In Obama we Trus….WHAAA??

  • nurple

    Hagan – such a god.

  • Balt_O_Matt

    But, y’all. Check out Hagan’s new ad where she accuses Facelift of bearing false witness against a fellow Christian! FTW!

  • Scarab

    Liddy Dole or Norm from Cheers in a wig?

  • problemwithcaring

    Vids gone. Am I gonna hafta Google myself? What do I frequently-enjoy-your-site-at-no-charge-to-me you people for?

  • problemwithcaring
  • PortlandSmartAss

    See, God loves our money, because it says “in God we Trust” all over it. And if we took it off, then we would be precluded from trusting in God. And then God would get mad. And would send a kickass hurricane to wipe out North Carolina. Oh, but that’s happened, with Liddy Dole in the Senate. So I guess God hates Dole, and doesn’t give a shit about what our money says.

  • whiteasasheet

    Erf. This people will literally do anything to get elected. Anything.
    [re=156395]problemwithcaring[/re]: Video just worked for me…

  • Tawmn

    What ever happened to “freedom of/from religion”?

  • sanantonerose

    Godless money? It says “God” right there on my money. What kind of money does Liddy Dole get when she gives BJs to all of Bob’s Viagra buddies?

  • ivenson

    Hey, Liddy Dole, whaddya say?
    “I just got back from the Auto da Fe.”
    Auto da fe, what’s an auto da fe?

    “It’s what no sane, rational, compassionate person would do….BUT YOU DO ANYWAY!!!”

  • mikebny

    Supposed Godless Kay Hagan is an elder in her church. She is being damned for meeting with atheists. Wow, just wow.

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=156401]whiteasasheet[/re]: : Worked for me now too. What’s my deal?

  • Roger Mexico, Actuary

    So what effect this crass impiety is going to have on the Lion Market.

  • dano

    Kay Hagan may have cavorted with atheists at some sort of sex party but she has something that Liddy Dole doesn’t have and can’t buy. Hagan has a commercial that features Andy Griffith enthusiastically endorsing her. Boom goes the dynamite!

  • Hairy Reed

    [re=156395]problemwithcaring[/re]: Works for me…

  • PsycGirl

    Real candidates only take godful money. Godfuls and godfuls of it.

  • totoro

    If Dole pulls this out, Godless American, Inc., will have been proven correct (about God).

    Someone should underline that part of the constitution about no religious test for government office, roll it up loosely, and cram it down that old hag’s nasty pie hole.

  • PrairiePossum

    Not to be outdone by McCain’s Joe the Plumber, Liddy introduces us to her new friend Hagan the Heathen.

  • Carrie_Okie

    Chant it with me:
    LIDDY DOLE IS AN ASS HOLE

    Ok, 0 for snark, +1 for rhyminz?

  • SayItWithWookies

    If Kay Hagan wins, America will be a failed theocracy. Yaaaaay!

  • Masorca

    The worse [art of including Bill O the clown on the ad. I threw up into my mouth a little

  • superfecta

    Imagine how the theists would have freaked out had she gone to a Subgenius party.

  • No Mommy!! IT BURNS!!!

    I just wrote her an angry letter. See, that’s how us Atheists do it, we follow the goddamn rules, unlike our Christian slave master, Senator Dole. If they don’t like what they hear, they rally the bitters and lynch people like me. Listen bitters, in this country all I want to do is fucking party, maybe get a BJ from a girl who slightly resembles Meghan Fox…I don’t want to tell you your God is about as real as Santa or that I should be able to have sex with your dog on top of a pentagram slab in your living room. Leave me the fuck alone, and I’ll do the same to you. I’d laugh at such an attack ad if it wasn’t painfully obvious that 10-18% of us non religious people are considered second class citizens. Damn, now I’m angry and depressed, who wants to grab a beer?

  • superfecta

    [re=156433]No Mommy!! IT BURNS!!![/re]: You’re just annoyed because Bush sr. said we shouldn’t be counted as citizens. Apparently an inability to read the Constitution is genetic.

  • GayInMaine

    [re=156415]dano[/re]: In North Carolina, Sheriff Taylor will always trump God. Take that, Liddy!

  • NoWireHangers

    Godless money?

    You mean there are Jesus nickels out there that I could be using to buy porn?!

  • WagTehGod

    You say you believe God is all-powerful, but can he create an attack ad so putrid even he can’t watch it?

  • qwerty42

    Courtesy John Cole at Balloon-Juice, it seems Kay Hagan is actually a Sunday school teacher.
    Need to get the lies right.

    Kay Hagan’s daughter came to my wedding, by the way. A JEWISH WEDDING!!!

  • dano

    On a related note: You know when I realized I was an atheist? When it dawned on me that movies like “The Omen” and “The Exorcist” weren’t scary, but actually kinda funny. I think I was about fourteen.

  • shortsshortsshorts

    [re=156442]Rodney Badger[/re]: I’m sorry but Jewish folks aren’t Christian, so they must be affiliated with Ayers, somehow.

  • Lazy Media

    [re=156408]mikebny[/re]: An elder in what kind of church? Could it be…CHURCH OF SATAN???!!!!

  • NWDCThugette

    Kay Hagan is way hot. Wow. Elizabeth is totally jealous.

  • messickc

    [re=156433]No Mommy!! IT BURNS!!![/re]: I’ll grab one with you– then smack ‘er upside the head with the empty bottle (are 40’s legal where you are?). That ad pissed me off.

    I’m an agnostic in Alabama… imagine how persecuted I feel.

    Sorry for no snark.

  • Mull_Man

    Post-Election, Liddy and G. Gordon Libby will do a drive-time radio show for religious fanatics that like to shoot federal agents – Head Shots for Jesus!

  • messickc

    [re=156458]messickc[/re]: Damn… animated gifs don’t work as avatars….

  • brain meats

    [re=156441]qwerty42[/re]: She’s not only a Sunday school teacher, but her family has apparently been going to the same Presbyterian church for 100 years.

    I’m agnostic and pro-atheism and I approve outing Liddy for being a desperate tool.

    Hagan’s response has been light on the “but I am an Xtian” and more on the “this negativity sucks” which I appreciate here from the dirt worshipin’ heathen west.

    :Somethingerother snarkier than the above goes here:

  • V572625694

    [re=156402]Tawmn[/re]: Bush killed freedom from religion.

    [re=156415]dano[/re]: Sheriff Andy? Really? Now she can’t lose. Them folks in Car-uh-lahna still think they live in Mayberry.

  • Miller

    Doesn’t Hagan know that atheists aren’t Americans? How do they even have money? Don’t they burn it because it has “God” written on it?

  • problemwithcaring

    This is sad, Liddy. Everyone recognizes a blatant play for “Best Use of Negative/Contrast” Polli Award when we see one.

  • messickc

    [re=156392]Balt_O_Matt[/re]: URL me! I’m too lazy to look it up.

  • Polly Sigh-Entist

    [re=156379]Norbert[/re]: Kay Hagan is totes the secret love-child between Kay Adams and Tom ‘cosig-li-igli-igli-erry’ Hagen – watch out for that horse’s head Liddy!

  • sleepy

    [re=156377]FMA[/re]: five and a half thumbs way up!!!!!.

  • iolanthe

    Sure, there’s a God! Look what’s happening to the Neocons. 4 years ago, I doubted. But today, my faith is unfolding again like a happy little flower in the sunshine.

    Keep running your mouths, Neocons.

  • Sussemilch

    I can’t think of anything more hypocritical than people who think they need to defend a supreme being.

  • Little Blue Dune Buggy

    In return for her satanic monies, Kay Hagan is going to pass a law to make God illegal now. If God even shows his face in this country, He will be arrested. He will then be judged insane and delusional (for believing that He exists) and thrown in the same padded cell with Ashely Todd. And then all unborn babies will be gay married. To each other.

  • qwerty42

    [re=156464]brain meats[/re]: yeah, from what I could tell, she’s actually running a campaign, not a cheap smear-a-thon on the way to the coronation. Sad to see how far Liddy has fallen.

  • PrairiePossum

    I printed up a big stack of Deity Dollars I’m sending to Liddy to help her re-election campaign. I’m sure she will find them quite useful.

  • Johnetic

    I saw this ad last night in my Charlotte home between rounds of Jeopardy and i almost threw by remote at the TV. My local NPR station totally called Dole’s campaign out calling the whole thing an utter fabrication – the fundraiser wasn’t for Hagan, but she did attend. The atheist group didn’t organize the fundraiser, but the PAC president was there, so it’s guilt by association to the Nth degree. Absolutely disgraceful.

  • DharmaDim

    Doesn’t Liddy know that atheists just want God off the money because it burns every time we touch it?

    Won’t someone think of the economy?

  • Gopherit

    Why does Jesus hate Christians so much? If he likes Liddy so much, why isn’t she winning…..and why did he let her husband discover Viagra?

  • Georgia Burning

    What’s been the inflation rate since we put “In God We Trust” on all the bills?? I’m just sayin’..

  • Upthruster

    …and godless americans are a problem because…..????????

  • HomoPolitico

    I tried to kill jesus but it turns out the being Jewish AND Italian (just call me a pizza bagel) I’d already helped kill him twice.

    This video is old. Way to stay current, Wonkette. Any other 3 day old stories you want to post?

  • problemwithcaring

    [re=156490]Sussemilch[/re]: A Supreme Being that demands defending?

  • Johnetic

    [re=156517]HomoPolitico[/re]: If you married to a Nietzsche-loving German you could have trifecta anti-christ offspring. How sweet would that be?

  • 3-legged Bloodhound

    [re=156518]McCainsThirdNipple[/re]: Like say the story about the dude who had nothing better to do than post a boring criticism on a website?

  • gurukalehuru

    [re=156369]Lorax[/re]: no, it’s not.

  • RaptorAvatar

    Given how well our money is doing right now, even with God on it’s side, I think you’d be a fool to accept contributions in the form of anything other than AtheistBux.

  • McCainsThirdNipple

    [re=156531]3-legged Bloodhound[/re]: No, the story about the dude who had nothing better to do than to insult people who insulted a blog about posting old stories.

  • chrisinnc

    Speaking of money, I’ve been holding back my meager campaign donations for Barry, but this seems like a special case. I just gave a lil’ bit to my new favorite senate candidate: https://secure.actblue.com/contribute/page/khagan

  • FMA

    Over on CNN, Campbell Brown is pleading with Liddy to “retain her dignity” and pull the ad and denounce it and burn it and then launch the ashes into space…
    Sorry, Campbell, but the whole retaining dignity train left the station when Bob discovered the little blue pill.

  • AnnieGetYourFun

    The REAL reason for Jesus ransacking the temple/payday lender comes to light. Their tender didn’t include his likeness.

    This forced me to make a Blingee. I am sorry.

    Is she already recruiting Mujahideen fighters to help her with the War against Atheism?

  • palmerdawg

    Gawd, what a douche nozzle!!!!!!!!

  • Sussemilch

    [re=156519]problemwithcaring[/re]: If he demands defending then he isn’t supreme. Unless, like, there’s a bigger, bossier god out there who’s trying to kick his ass, like a Super Supreme being. Maybe Allah, Buddha, and Vishnu are all tag-teaming him and he needs Randy Savage to smack someone with a folding chair?

  • DangerousLiberal

    [re=156399]PortlandSmartAss[/re]: It’s says “In God We Trust.” God laughs, and couldn’t give two shits. He’s still annoyed with the Inquisition. Ya know, the whole “thou shalt not kill thing.” And putting “under God” in the Pledge sort of hacked him off too.

  • Naked Bunny with a Whip

    Good things they didn’t find out about Hagan’s meeting with Furry Lifestylers!

  • Constitutional Riots

    [re=156513]Gopherit[/re]: Because Liddy’s had so much work done, Jesus doesn’t recognize her any more.

    unfortunately instead of “shut up you crazy person! who cares if i went to a fundraiser at some guy’s house who knows someone who said that god suxxx? who gives a shit?!” kay hagan brilliantly got INCREDIBLY OFFENDED that liddy “insulted her christianity”….i mean…ye olde facepalm is all i’ve got here..

  • matineeidol

    I was at a work conference and one of the group dispensed a biblically-based newsletter thingy about how christian it is to not pay taxes or use federal currency. So, I feel like Ms. Dole is slightly off message. You can get money from Christians, and you’re STILL an athiest. Moreover, our deist forefathers are likely burning in hell for NOT initially putting God’s name on Money (whose weird-ass, cake-eyed idea was that? it doesn’t even make sense?!) or not including him in the first drafts of our pledge, our Constitution, our preamble, and for having a totally different non-protestant idea of god–WHEW!

    (that’ my commercial script, and I expect to be justly compensated in god-money).
