With Tucker OUT, Walker back to “exploring” a Tillis challenge

    Congressmen Mark Walker (R) and George Holding (R) both got royally screwed by the new congressional maps.  They are now sitting in majority Democrat districts.     Holding has been quoted in the driveby media today saying that he would not run against…

Garland, we hardly knew ye.

  Just like the month of March,  the rich guy from Raleigh came onto the scene like a lion, but left quietly like a lamb.   Garland Tucker had quite a story to tell — a successful businessman not unlike our current president.  A background…

Bailout? Um, sorry. (NO.)

  McClatchy makes a living out of communicating leftist propaganda and  mocking more than half of its pool of potential subscribers on a daily basis.  And they can’t — for the life of them — understands WHY their cash flow is down.     The…
