Here's a selection of some of the other better lines we received this week:
"Who are we trying to impress dressed like hicks from Charlotte? Surely not voters in the rest of the state."
"John Edwards wouldn't use a pitchfork to comb HIS hair!"
"It will take more than a three-pronged approach to cultivate support in these parts!"
"They say the highway lights are bright, in Raleigh."
"Great! We'll call it 'Raleigh Got-Hick'!"
"For a city boy, you clean up pretty well."
"You can run, but you can't hide!"
"Forget the pitchfork. You won't get elected governor unless Hell freezes over."
"Nice try at a makeover, but the Brooks Brothers jacket and Smith & Hawken signature pitchfork are a dead giveaway."
"They'll ride you out on a rail."
