Democrats & Republicans Join Forces to Defeat NC Supreme Court Candidate

Rachel Lea Hunter, a Democrat who is running for a slot on North Carolina's Supreme Court, has made so many offensive comments about other people that now both the Democrats and the Republicans are working to defeat her.

RALEIGH, N.C. -- The leaders of the state's Democratic and Republican parties have asked voters not to cast ballots for state Supreme Court candidate Rachel Lea Hunter, whose fiery rhetoric in recent weeks has included comparing the actions of a black congressional candidate to that of a slave.

"She's unstable and unqualified, and the thought of her serving on the highest court in North Carolina is scary," state Republican party chairman Ferrell Blount said Tuesday.

Blount's comments came after Hunter, a former Republican running as a Democrat, used the title "Dur Fuhrer" -- commonly associated with Nazi leader Adolf Hitler -- when referring to state Democratic party chief Jerry Meek. Such rhetoric led Meek to endorse Republican-backed incumbent Mark Martin in his race with Hunter for a seat on the state's high court.


Last week, in a post on her Web site, Hunter criticized congressional candidate Vernon Robinson for running for office as a Republican, even though the staunch and outspoken conservative lost his bid for state GOP chair at the party's convention in 2005.

"Like a good slave, he has returned to the plantation," Hunter wrote about Robinson, who is black.

On Tuesday, Hunter revised that statement on her Web site, calling Robinson's behavior like that of an "Uncle Tom" -- considered to be a contemptuous term for a black whose behavior toward whites is regarded as fawning or servile.

Ed Morrissey points out that Ms. Hunter's website has a poem called "Dur Furher Meeks Speaks," about Democratic party chairman Jerry Meeks, on her website's front page:

Hypocritical (sung to the tune of Unforgettable)

Hypocritical, that's what you are are.
Hypocritical, though near or far.
Like poison ivy that clings to me,
How your actions do painful things to me.
Never has someone been more
hypocritical in every way.
And forevermore, that's how you'll stay.
That's why its incredible,
that someone so hypocritical
Thinks that I am just like you.

Can you believe that after she spewed her offensive comments, her husband had the nerve to take offense at Mr. Blount's assertion that Ms. Hunter is "unstable."

Taking offense is a fine art. I'm not surprised at all.

I can believe it.

An old boyfriend of mine used to say about other couples, "Water finds its own level." He's likely an unstable sort as well.

Hunter should learn from Hillary and never mention the word "Plantation" in any context.

What astonishes me is that the Dems don't like a judicial candidate who wasn't nominated by George W. Bush.

That's just weird.

It's a state supreme court. In many states those positions are elected or appointed by the governor.

It's bad enough that we've got this damn Dook case with the strippers and assorted clown acts, but now a Supreme Court judicial aspirant is on the ballot, and she's certifiable.

And, our Huricanes lost game 5 tonight.

Kbiel, I was being facetious. Obviously someone running for election to a judgeship isn't going to be nominated for that post by the President.

I agree, we can't elect someone who makes up German articles as a Supreme Court Justice. Someone please tell her that it's Der, not Dur

I'm not sure what Dur Fuhrer is, but I'm guessing it's the jester of the third reich. Or possibly a kind of rock.
