Some folks not happy with Larry Kissell

Has NC gone to the dogs. You know, the blue dogs. There was some hope that that at least some of the people the netroots rallied around would play nice, but those hopes seem to be fading.
Larry Kissell has been taking some heat from people who backed him in both races over his reluctance on health care.
Howie Klein puts it rather bluntly in Have We Been Stabbed in the Back By Larry Kissell?

Next year, Kissell– who has a reputation as an abysmal fundraiser, and won’t get a dime from the netroots ever again– is being challenged by retired Army Col. Lou Huddleston. Huddleston and GOP front groups will call Kissell a Nancy Pelosi clone no matter how he votes and no matter what he does. Glenn Beck and Rush Limbaugh fans are not going to vote for Larry Kissell. And if he follows through with his threats to vote against health care reform, neither will Democrats, just the way they didn’t come out to vote for Deeds in Virginia.
