ANOTHER ONE wants to fight. (*SIGH* *SMH*)

Um — Heil Buckwheat?

We’re decidedly not Michele Nix cheerleaders around these parts.  But we do think she is getting  a raw deal in the latest hit piece by the NC Democrat Party and their communications team at The N&O.  Here’s Toilet Boy Campbell’s latest dictation: The vice-chairwoman of…
