The ‘Lady Parts’ Brigade sets its sights on the 2020 Governor’s Race

  They got a  Democrat elected governor and a Republican and a Democrat elected senator in North Carolina.  (None of those ended up working out very well.)     They tried to get someone with ‘lady parts’ elected to the Third Congressional District, but THAT…

Will ‘Lady Parts!’ become the rallying cry for the GOPe in 2020?

#ncga: Bob Steinburg? Audited. (And the Dare County D.A. was nowhere in the vicinity.)

  Does everybody remember when Senator ‘Pickle’ declared war on Dare County’s top prosecutor for daring to pursue criminal charges against the senator’s top legislative and campaign aide?  (We do.)     Well, the toothless state board of elections has audited the campaign account of…

Phil Berger hops on the Tillis ‘love train’

  How trés disappointing:       “A record of achieving results” ????  Hitler had one of those TOO.  (They weren’t very positive or uplifting results, but he got results.)     “Working WITH Senator Berger” ????   It was actually more like Speaker Tillis…
