Dot Helms helps Burr? The poor lady has lost her mind.

I had one heck of a deep belly laugh upon reading this today in the Raleigh News and Observer:

"Dorothy Helms, the widow of Sen. Jesse Helms, has sent out a fundraising letter for Republican Sen. Richard Burr, asking her husband's former supporters to back Burr. "I know Jesse would want all of us to do what we can to help Richard this year," Mrs. Helms writes. "Richard represents North Carolinians well in the Senate. He uses a common-sense approach to solving our nation's problems, and he has been recognized by his colleagues for his ability to get things done." "Simply put," she writes, "Richard Burr is a work horse, not a show horse." Helms, a Republican, represented North Carolina in the Senate from 1973 until 2003.

Dot is probably a sweet woman. But I don't think the poor lady has a clue what Richard Burr has done in the United States Senate for the citizens of North Carolina. Has Richard Burr done a damn thing about health care costs, energy costs and production , college education costs? NOPE. Not a darn thing. He's done absolutely nothing of substance on any topic of importance to our country.

And it doesn't appear to me that Richard Burr is respected by anyone within the Unites State Senate. Has Richard Burr been appointed to a single committee of substance? Does he serve on foreign affairs, budget, banking committees? You never see the man anywhere addressing anything of importance in the United States Senate.

Come on Dot. Wake the heck up. The people of North Carolina know Richard Burr. He's NO Jesse Helms, and never will be. He'll never obtain a position of authority within the United States Senate, unless of course, we have a crises in lawn care in our nation. Richard Burr knows the lawn mowing industry.

North Carolina simply deserves better than Republican Senator Richard Burr.
