#ncpol: Meet John F. Kerry, version 2.0.

In 2004, the Democrats treated us to a presidential candidate who would not let us forget that he had served IN the military AND IN VIETNAM. He had an Ivy League education. He also had a lot of money at his disposal. Fortunately for the country, John Kerry and his running mate, The Break Girl, lost. Fourteen years later, it appears the Democrats are hauling out the same formula —…

How many votes to impeach Dallas?

The cartoon character is at it again.  (IF ONLY we could get the brain to vet things before they come out of his mouth …): The state Republican Party executive director raised the possibility that state Supreme Court justices could be impeached if they ruled against legislative leaders in a lawsuit over constitutional amendments.[…]  Dallas Woodhouse made the remarks at an NC Free Enterprise Foundation event Friday. In a later…

Chelsea Clinton: Abortion = economic BOOM!

While drivebys and Democrats in North Carolina have been parsing the words of EVERY Mark Harris sermon, the daughter of the Left’s most-beloved, most-worshipped couple is out touting the economic benefits of killing babies: No one can accuse the Clintons of failing to prioritize profit over ethics. Giving a gross demonstration of this familial trait, Chelsea Clinton applauded abortion by claiming that the Roe v. Wade decision has added three…

Steinburg: No comment on my b-ball deal. (On my opponent? SURE.)

Stein-ball a/k/a The Steinburg Invitational has finally caught the interest of Bob Steinburg’s Democrat opponent in November: Cole Phelps, the Democratic candidate in state Senate District 1, criticized his Republican opponent, Bob Steinburg, on Saturday for seeking and receiving a $50,000 sports marketing contract from Currituck County, describing the contract as “wrong.” Phelps, speaking at a Democratic Party picnic at Waterfront Park, said near the end of his speech that…

#ncga: Ken Goodman, RADICAL LEFTIST ???

That wacky political operation for the House GOP caucus is at it again.  I called them out once already for going over the top.  Now, they’re just really reaching and stretching, and, and, and ….(*SIGH*) Let’s look back at a fellow named William Brisson.  He was a rather moderate Democrat from Bladen County who increasingly voted with the Republicans.  Finally, he pulled the trigger, switched parties, and helped pad the…

John Hood: Take down confederate monuments, but be NICE about it.

(I call this continued-cocktail-party-invitation-insurance.)  “Mr. Conservative” has been tap-dancing around for months now babbling about “civility” in politics.  Here he is begging for some of that “civility” in the fight to wipe all traces of Confederate history from the face of the planet: If critics of Confederate monuments truly want to accomplish their goal of removing such objects from the public square, I’m a good example of the kind of…

McCrory putting the shiv to Raleigh Republicans

They hated his guts while he was governor.  But ol’ Pat sure is giving the lefties what they need these days. Exhibit 1:  McCrory has teamed up with the other living former governors (Hunt, Easley, Perdue, Martin) to publicly campaign AGAINST two of the constitutional amendments being promoted by General Assembly Republicans. Exhibit 2:   McCrory was on Meet The Press this morning describing the state’s congressional districts as “gerrymandered.” He…

#ncga: Stein-ball affair “under review” in Currituck

Another driveby media outlet on the coast is sounding off on Stein-ball (aka “The Steinburg Invitational”):  […] What the county is buying is advertising and promotion, said Currituck travel and tourism director Tameron Kugler in an email this week. The county is buying that exposure with occupancy tax money designated for promotion, Kugler said.[…] Problem:  The county is “buying” this from a guy who admits to having NO PRIOR EXPERIENCE with this…
