KAY HAGAN ACTING LIKE GEORGE "NO-SHOW" JONES -- AWOL AT PIVOTAL U.S. SENATE DEBATE


KAY HAGAN ACTING LIKE GEORGE "NO-SHOW" JONES. WHY?


By Verne Strickland / October 21, 2014


 At this moment I can actually feel some degree of pity for Kay Hagan. Her failure to appear at tonight's "debate" with Thom Tillis is another defeat for her.

How can she maintain any semblance of dignity and pride?

Frankly I don't think she can bear going through the same pretense of believing the things she says. So she emulates George Jones. She's a "no-show". It won't hurt her with her tired groupies. They don't expect anything more of her anyway. How can one vote for such a candidate? She has vacated every value a candidate must have. What's left to support?

At this moment the presentation via Time Warner Cable is over. Already some journalists at the TWC studios in Charlotte are decrying the "advantage" Tillis had in being a solo guest. Thom Tillis worked hard to get Hagan involved, but she continued to play coy. I say too bad. It was her opportunity to squander.

She has been like the "Possum", singer George Jones, whose rendition of "They call me No-Show Jones" was wildly popular. Jones admits he often didn't show because he was drunk. Hagan didn't show -- at the October 21 "debate", or at many of the Washington hearings on U.S. security, and at other functions where her expertise was needed -- because either she didn't give a damn, or was busy with personal business like political fund-raisers, or both.

In short, she mocks the voters who have respected her. They shouldn't have. She is not deserving of it.
