If you’re Speaker Timmy’s boy, you never really lose (even when you REALLY DO): Raleigh, N.C. – Governor Pat McCrory announced a district court appointment today for Cleveland and Lincoln counties. The governor has appointed Justin Brackett as a district court judge, serving Cleveland and…

Thilli$$$: No more controver$$$y, plea$$$e. (I need to get PAID.)

Thom Tillis is out there preaching that national Republicans can learn a lesson from Pat McCrory about — get this — moving too far to the right: For all the GOP’s elect­or­al suc­cess this year, Sen. Thom Tillis says the party should see North Car­o­lina’s gubernat­ori­al…

MORE Russia nonsense.

As the vote of the electoral college and inauguration day itself approach, the hysteria is reaching a deafening pitch.  We’re told that Russia subverted our political process and gave us Donald Trump.  (In 2008 and 2012, reports that Barry Obama was a Manchurian Candidate for…

SOME on The Right actually buying into leftist crap about Trump and the election? (Apparently.)

It’s been quite disappointing to watch the wussification of National Review and The American Spectator — two publications that played a big part in fomenting my conservative passions as a young undergrad.  (I can actually remember The Spectator when it was more than a website….

#ncpol: Pat, we hardly got to know you.

So, our third Republican governor since Reconstruction is going down in history as the first North Carolina governor to be voted out of office.  Some people have laughably tried to pin Pat McCrory’s loss on some imagined right-wing stridency. I have been networking with some…

Jeter’s final campaign report: $$ for gas, ding dongs and soda; little to nothing for successor, colleagues

It hit the papers that Charles Jeter would be quitting the NC House on July 25.  Yet, instead of leaving something for his successor, sharing with his soon-to-be-former colleagues, or showing some respect for his donors, he continued to spend campaign funds on “travel snacks,”…

Want a friend in Raleigh? (Get yourself a mean old man.)

Dallas Woodhouse did it.  Now, apparently, Speaker Timmy is following suit.  In the wake of Charles Jeter’s departure from the House, that chamber’s littlest BIG KAHUNA was in need of a new Stimpy to his Ren. And he apparently found it by way of Duplin County. I…

Colon Campbell is JEALOUS.

The N&O’s boy wonder — and special lavatory investigator — opened up his favorite publication and found himself a scoop:  The humor publication MAD Magazine has named Gov. Pat McCrory to its annual “20 Dumbest List” because of his support for House Bill 2. The…

Still not seeing the whole ‘second coming of Hitler’ thing

Lefties have tried hard to scare the crap out of us about what’s coming from newly-elected president Donald Trump.  Granted, Trump talked like he was going to take a sledgehammer to DC.  Granted, the lefties and their media cohorts are pounding back on him.  But,…
