Digby thinks he "may just pull this thing out".  Well, I hate to be pessimistic, but Billy Kennedy's chances against Virginia Foxx in NC-05 are just about zero: he's down 30 points in the polls. 

I will say this though: he's running a great campaign.    

Granted, he's up against Virginia "Matthew Shepard was a hoax" Foxx, but this is North Carolina, y'all, where crazy isn't necessarily an impediment to high office.  

But that doesn't detract from the fact that Kennedy is running like a winner.  So much so that the Winston-Salem Journal, which tends to back Republicans, actually endorsed Kennedy over Foxx.

He also did well in the debate earlier this week.  Here's a zinger he got in:


Now, I could be wrong abut Kennedy's chances, so I encourage everyone to vote, even if chances are bleak.  It's important to vote against the insanity of the right wing.
