Oh, to be as, um, *wise* as John Hood ..

North Carolina’s very own ‘Alex P. Keaton’ — and living, breathing caricature of conservatism — John Hood never ceases to amaze.  He’s about my age, can snootily quote 14th century central European libertarian philosophers.. I  understand he’s strutting around Raleigh like a bantam rooster shaking people…

John Hood: Donald Trump is a BIGOT

It’s pretty apparent that Raleigh’s *Mr. Conservative* doesn’t think much of GOP presidential frontrunner Donald Trump or his supporters: THAT –my friends — is sarcastic repartee in the vein of what one might expect from an admirer of Lord Shaftesbury-FancyPants of 16th century England.  It’s…

NCSPIN: Blinkin’ & Bitchin’. (Now THAT is quality television!)

I gave up on NC Spin several months back.  For those of you not familiar with this program, it is WRAL commisar Jim Goodmon’s attempted knockoff of the McLaughlin Group.  Except Jim’s version involves Democrat hacks Tom Campbell and Chris Fitzsimon doing their best Baghdad…

Corruption, dishonesty are bi-partisan ailments

  I heard through the grapevine that John Hood thinks I don’t like him very much.  (For the record, all I know of him is what I read in his columns and what I hear him saying on NC Spin.) It’s not personal with Mr….

John Locke’s Hood misrepresents Amendment One

      First it was Renee Ellmers.  Now, it’s John Locke Foundation president John Hood.  We’ve had a mini-outbreak of alleged conservative leaders throwing in with the left to help throw North Carolina’s conservative grassroots under the bus. The N&O recounted a recent column…
