He MIGHT actually be worse than a Democrat.

I doubt you’ll find anyone else straight-out-of-the-trailer-park  as nasty, haughty and condescending as Lil’ Lord Thomas Roland Tillis.  Each time he comes up for election, establishment types hit us with about the only possible defense for their man: “Oh, he’s better than that Democrat.”

But, IS he?   You don’t see many more rankings of US senators these days.  But when you did, His Haughtiness regularly scored within 20 points of the most “conservative” Democrat.  Thommy Boy is more combative and more aggressive toward actual conservatives in his own party than he is toward Democrats. He’s our Mitt.

Check out this latest attack by Terrible Thom against Georgia’s Marjorie Taylor Greene:

Sen. Thom Tillis, R-N.C., went after Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., on Tuesday, saying that Greene was a threat to the Republican Party and was “dragging our brand down.”

“I think she’s uninformed. She is a total waste of time,” Tillis said in a recording reported by CNN and aired Tuesday evening.

“She is a horrible leader. She is dragging our brand down. She — not the Democrats — are the biggest risk to us getting back to a majority,” the senator added.

Tillis’ comments come after Greene has criticized the House’s move to pass a long-stalled foreign aid bill. […]

What is this “brand” His Haughtiness keeps babbling about?  Telling your constituents one thing and doing the opposite when you arrive in DC?  Most of our congressional delegation does that.  Mocking his party’s base, and basically asking where else are they going on Election Day?

Thom sounds like state Republicans in the 60s and 70s.  They were confined mainly to parts of metro Charlotte and metro Greensboro.  You were Republican because your family had been since Lincoln was around.

Barry Goldwater, Richard Nixon, Ronald Reagan and Jesse Helms got the NCGOP to where it is today.  The folks in Democrat stronghold eastern North Carolina were convinced it was OK to vote for at least some of those folks with the (R) next to their names.  Conservatism brought the GOP to power in this state. Now, the folks basking in all that power want to stomp out what brought them to the mountaintop.

Ms. Greene went to DC doing exactly what she told her constituents she would.  She’s actually trying to bring some sanity to the management of the national economy.  *What a terrible person.*

Thanks to Tillis and his disciples in Raleigh and DC,  the (R) means nothing.  To them, registering (R) is like joining Rotary over Kiwanis.  Of course, being an (R) right now — thanks to those hated conservatives — means you get to control a lot of cash.

What good is having a majority if it’s dominated by people who stand for nothing and don’t vote much different than the folks in the (D) gang?

If you’re old enough, flash back to the late 80s with me.  Connecticut had a senator with an (R) next to his name called Lowell Weicker.  Weicker carried himself a lot like Tillis: pompous, rude, and absolutely hateful to conservatives.  Weicker regularly “crossed the aisle”.  (Sound familiar?)

William F. Buckley, Jr., a longtime Connecticut resident and a conservative legend, had just about enough as Weicker’s 1988 reelection bid approached.  At the time, Connecticut had a moderate Democrat attorney general named Joseph Lieberman.   Buckley concluded that it was better to have a Democrat who might be with us 30 to 40 percent of the time rather than a fake Republican who took the conservative line close to zero percent of the time.  Buckley and his National Review colleagues formed something called BuckPAC — aimed at ousting that pompous left-wing tub of lard Weicker. Lieberman became the Democrat nominee for US Senate.  He won — thanks in part to conservative anger at Weicker and the work of BuckPAC.

Here in North Carolina, Tillis has benefited from packing the primaries with candidates to divide the conservative vote or simply scaring away potential conservative contenders. He’s not all that strong, and has yet to break the 50 percent mark in any of his races.

The guy with the best shot of taking out Tillis — Dan Bishop — has been talked into the AG’s race this year.  So, it appears the deck has been cleared for Terrible Thom once again.

If Thom is going to show this much contempt for us and our principles, perhaps we should return the favor.  Leave some ballots sections in 2026 blank. 

That might elect a Democrat, but — at this point — SO WHAT?  Our current so-called public servant is spending too much time sneering and laughing at us. 

 Tillis and the gang in DC have edged us even closer to the economic precipice.  What good will six more years of HIM do for us or our country?
