Liddy Dole Attacks Opponent For Attending Fundraiser With ATHEISTS

by Jim Newell

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]

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? October 30, 2008 at 2:46 pm

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

Lorax October 30, 2008 at 2:46 pm

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

user-of-owls October 30, 2008 at 2:46 pm

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

One Yield Regular October 30, 2008 at 2:47 pm

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

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

FMA October 30, 2008 at 2:47 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 2:48 pm

wow. just wow.

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

Texan Bulldoggette October 30, 2008 at 2:48 pm

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

funkyj October 30, 2008 at 2:49 pm

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.

Hagan – such a god.

Balt_O_Matt October 30, 2008 at 2:51 pm

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

Liddy Dole or Norm from Cheers in a wig?

PortlandSmartAss October 30, 2008 at 2:54 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 2:55 pm

Erf. This people will literally do anything to get elected. Anything.

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

sanantonerose October 30, 2008 at 2:56 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 2:56 pm

Hey, Liddy Dole, whaddya say?
“I just got back from the Auto da Fe.”

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

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:01 pm

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

totoro October 30, 2008 at 3:02 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:02 pm

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

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

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

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

No Mommy!! IT BURNS!!! October 30, 2008 at 3:13 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:14 pm

[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.

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

qwerty42 October 30, 2008 at 3:18 pm

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

Rodney Badger October 30, 2008 at 3:18 pm


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

dano October 30, 2008 at 3:24 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:24 pm

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

Sorry for no snark.

[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.

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:28 pm

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

Keep running your mouths, Neocons.

Sussemilch October 30, 2008 at 3:33 pm

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

Little Blue Dune Buggy October 30, 2008 at 3:36 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:37 pm

[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 October 30, 2008 at 3:39 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:44 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:45 pm

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 October 30, 2008 at 3:45 pm

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?

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.

[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 October 30, 2008 at 5:03 pm

[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.

matineeidol October 30, 2008 at 8:53 pm

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).
