Bev, bipartisanship, and those silly – silly – silly elections

Well, Madame Governor got us some national news coverage on Tuesday that made us look *VERY WISE* for making her our boss lady. ”Dem Guv calls for ‘suspending elections’ ” screamed the banner headline on The Drudge Report.  The headline was accompanied by a photo…

BarryO, the Jewish janitor, the London-to-New York train ride, and the 57th U.S. State

  I’m concerned. Judging from the latest news coverage,  either BarryO is falling apart emotionally and psychologically, or his teleprompter is in full revolt. I started my investigation into all of this by checking in with the teleprompter’s blog and Twitter feed.  (No real clues there…

Perry and barbecue: cutting through all of the smoke

Rob Christensen and the lads and lassies in the N&O newsroom ought to take Fox News president Roger Ailes’s recent assessment of Texas governor Rick Perry to heart: “If he tells people he’s gonna kick their ass, he might actually do it, which is useful…

No profiles in courage for NCGOP in DC

  North Carolina’s Republican Members of Congress have proved — once again — that keeping Speaker John Boehner happy is more important than looking out for the folks struggling through a wretched economy back home. On Wednesday, 48 Republican members of the US House joined…

Gov Bev OK with gay day in May?

One MOORE entrant for the state senate GOP primary?

      Stuff keeps coming in over the transom about the state senate seat being vacated by retiring Republican Harris Blake of Pinehurst. Recent redistricting moved Blake and Moore County from the current district to District 29, which includes Randolph County and is currently…

Pinehurst’s Cummings to pursue state Senate seat?

My spies within Raleigh political circles, and on the ground here in Moore County and throughout the Sandhills region, tell me retired physician Robin Cummings of Pinehurst is seriously eyeing the state Senate seat currently held by Senator Harris Blake (R-Pinehurst), who is retiring at…

Leftists demand a free lunch

      We’ve got  real good case study going on right now illustrating how disingenuous leftists and their comrades in the alleged Mainstream Media (MSM) can be when they are out to get someone. In today’s edition of our local paper here in Moore…

Stam goes into the belly of the beast, gets gnawed on

Seriously, Mr. Leader.  What good did you think could come from going to Chapel Hill to defend the gay marriage ban constitutional amendment? Going over there was akin to a cat accepting a party invitation from a pack of pit bulls.  It’s like trying to…

Hi Mom! Look at Me! I’m President!

    OK.  This screams “photoshop.”  MSNBC — the chief stenographers for BarryO — posted this photo without commenting on its bizarre nature.  (Some of the commenters on their web site spoke up.) Some sites expressed suspicion, believing they were being “punked” with a  bogus…
