NCGOP Follies: “Results, not Rhetoric” & The Pronunciation Game

Surprisingly, this one has NOTHING to do with the little cartoon character. What you see below is being pushed out all over social media: This is not news.  He already told us in his emailed Christmas card that he was running again.  The ad is recycled from his last run…

Exit Mrs. Nix?

It’s been one of the worst kept secrets in NC politics that NCGOP vice-chairman Michele Nix has her eyes on bigger prizes (like, say, the Third Congressional District seat in Washington). Word is already circulating among NCGOP activists that Nix is laying the groundwork for stepping down from the state…

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 the N.C. Republican Party is…

NCGOP’s Nix: We are NOT the “conservative” party!

Many of us on the right have seen the GOP running as fast as it can from conservatism over recent years.  (*And why not?  It only encouraged a ton of people to bolt the Democrat Party and turn the NCGOP from an afterthought to a force to be reckoned with.*)…

#ncpol: Michele Nix for — um, CONGRESS ????

That’s the word I’m hearing from coastal North Carolina. The vice-chairman of the NCGOP, I’m told, has been devoting a significant portion of her time during the 2018 primary season promoting a run for the 3rd congressional district in 2020 and seeking endorsements.  (Walter Jones is in the middle of…

Haywood County. (Holy Cow!)

I am not 100 percent sure about the merits of the people — or of their arguments — that make up the current mess that IS the Haywood County GOP.   But I am sure that I don’t like the idea of three or four people — Michele Mix, Robin…

As the NCGOPe turns …

The soap opera within the state Republican Party continues to rage on with shamelessness you won’t find on any of those trashy daytime TV programs.  It appears First District GOP chairman Garry Terry has resigned from that post.  Here is his reputed resignation letter, released publicly on Facebook by NCGOP…

Michele Nix locked out TOO?

Apparently, so: We told you about chairman Harnett being locked out of his party email account last night.  Now, it appears the vice-chairman has gotten the same treatment.  Looks like we have a true coup going down at HQ, boys and girls.

#NCGOP Long knives already out for Nix, Harnett

I am really starting to look like a psychic.  In a previous post about Hasan Harnett’s upset win in the NCGOP chairman’s race, I talked about the possibility of sore loser-ism setting in with the party establishment.  I predicted tactics similar to what the Dems did to Randy Voller would…
