Audio: Boss Bev WAS serious !!!!

    Surprisingly, the sycophants and apologists for all things portside in the newsroom at The Raleigh News & Observer first told us about Madame Governor suggesting elections should be postponed.  Then, their editor jumped in, threw the reporter who…

No profiles in courage for NCGOP in DC

  North Carolina’s Republican Members of Congress have proved — once again — that keeping Speaker John Boehner happy is more important than looking out for the folks struggling through a wretched economy back home. On Wednesday, 48 Republican members…

Gov Bev OK with gay day in May?

The campaign silly season is upon us.  Politicians are running all over the countryside kissing babies and telling us how bad the other guys are. Thanks to the Tea Party — which the MSM loves to tell us is so…
