God Turns Back On Elizabeth Dole

 
Senator Elizabeth Dole of North Carolina, who in a few weeks will be known as former Senator Elizabeth Dole, has lost to State Senator Kay Hagen. Senator Dole had run an ad saying that Ms. Hagen was an atheist.  (Above is a painting of the Hindu goddess Radha. Hindus in North Carolina will have a new senator. Here is a link to the Hindu Center of North Carolina. North Carolina is a diverse place and all people in that state merit representation.)   

There was no divine intervention for Senator Dole tonight. She has lost her race and is out of the Senate.

  1. Yep, God was/is disgusted with Dole’s egregious smearing and lying. Served her right and good riddance.

  2. Think a little “divine intervention” happened last night? Dole clearly bore “false witness” against Hagen. It’s time for out with the old and in with the new. And the “new” doesn’t bode well with dirty campaign tricks!
    BTW — I’m not from N.C. but from N.Y.

  3. Ding, Dong, the Witch is Gone!

    Lets not forget the Atheist votes. :) I want to thank Elizabeth Dole for making me educate myself, and get the word out about Atheists. We are so misunderstood.

    I want to thank all of the Christian people who are tolorant of other religions and the non-religions! I know you are out there. You all ROCK! :) I love you all.

    Today I am proud of America and North Carolina. I can’t expresss just how proud I am. It brings me to tears. I am so glad to see that bigotry will not prevail in any shape form or manor.

    Long live America and the people who will keep it free!

    Hail! Hail! to Barak Obama. Job well done! :)
    Also, my condolances to your grandmother. She is smiling where ever she is. She raised a FINE, Man!

  4. Three great comments. Thanks to for each of them. It will be a good day when Mrs. Dole is gone.

  5. Mrs. Dole bore false witness to retain power.

    The new Senator Elect is a Christian and called Dole on this.

    Dole violated spiritual laws that are just as automatic as gravity.

    She did the spiritual equivalent of stepping off a cliff.

    The voters of NC rejected her immediately.

  6. I must say that when Senator Dole lost, I couldn’t resist. I had to stand up and do a little happy dance.

  7. I was watching this race all night, and loved every minute of it. Apparently, some of these right-wing evangelicals can dish it, but not take it. Dole was not counting on Hagan to get biblical on her. I love how the hypocritical Bible-thumping backfired…

  8. batguano–False witness–That’s right.

    Ms. Ellis–A new day in many of the 50 states. Even down south.

  9. Second only to Obama’s win in making me happy was Dole’s loss. The moral depth to which she sank to win is stunning. I will not hope that she burns in h#ll for her filthy “godless” ad–that’s between her and her creator. I won’t hope that she loses the defamation of character lawsuit that Hagen is rightfully bringing against her–that’s between her and an earthly judge and jury. I do hope that her ad caused her to lose her Senate seat–that the decent citizens of North Carolina were so repelled by the vile ad that they voted for Hagen. That would be just. Her ad was to Hagen’s campaign what Bush policy is to Al Qaeda–their best recruitng tool. Hopefully North Carolinians sensed the terrible precedent of winning an election following such an ad. In future elections the candidates would have to up the filth ante beyond the terrible threshold set by Dole. That way lies anarchy. The ad makes it clear that Dole is the godless one. She could begin to redeem herself with a national (local isn’t good enough because the ad was so repellent that it got press outside of NC–I heard it on NPR in DC, no charge to the Dole campaign) press conference in which she apologizes for her shameful ad.

  10. Elizabeth Dole’s defeat reinforces my faith in good human common sense and decency. How appropriately humiliating for her to be publily shamed and defeated after lying and slandering in the name of God. Even if she has no sense of shame herself, it is a lesson for society. There was a day when this sort of vile behavior would carry weight with people. Well, it still does in some quarters. Here’s hope for a new day.
