Renee Ellmers has set a new standard for bald-faced hypocrisy and outright lying.  She apparently thinks the voters are too stupid to check the facts.  Given her TWO reelections, she might be right about a lot of her voters.  The Ellmers campaign this year has…

#nc-02: Two guys, a girl and a Crabtree

Well, WRAL hosted a debate featuring the three candidates for this US House seat Thursday night.  Here’s the video.  Of course, I watched — so you don’t HAVE to, and made some observations: LOOK AT MEEEEEEEEEEEE.  I’M DAVID CRABTREEEEEEEEEE.  North Carolina’s very own Ted Baxter…
