I’m back! I survived! Now, no one can — er, um –TOUCH me.

At first I was afraid I was petrified
Kept thinkin’ I could never live without you by my side;
But then I spent so many nights
Thinkin’ how you did me wrong
And I grew strong and I learned how to get along
And now you’re back from outer space
I just walked in to find you here with that sad look upon your face
I should have changed that stupid lock
I should have made you leave your key
If I’d’ve known for just one second you’d back to bother me
Go on now, go walk out the door
Just turn around now
(’cause) you’re not welcome anymore
Weren’t you the one who tried to hurt me with goodbye
Do you think I’d crumble
Did you think I’d lay down and die?
Oh no, not I. I will survive
Oh as long as I know how to love I know I’ll stay alive;
I’ve got all my life to live,
I’ve got all my love to give and I’ll survive,
I will survive.

— Gloria Gaynor

Seriously. I want this David Parker defending me in court for my next traffic ticket.  He’s good.

Despite his defense of that apparently over-aggressive romantic Jay Parmley — and that laughably horrific televised press conference —  state Democrats have kept David Parker on board as their chairman. 

Look at it this way Dems — NCGOP has had Tom Fetzer and Robin Hayes as their most recent party chairmen, and the party STILL did well. Most people on the street couldn’t name the chairman of either party.  Unfortunately, most of them can name  the governor —  you know, your girl the dimwitted plastic-faced Joan Rivers lookalike.  SHE and Barry-O are the crosses you will have to bear this election season.  David Parker is the least of your problems.

This move — keeping Parker –tosses a monkey wrench into the Jones Street Democrats’ plan to toss Tom-with-an-H out of office over the sex-and-lobbyists kerfluffle.   (Don’t worry.  There’s much better ammo to use against TT out there.  Just cool your heels. All will be revealed soon.)
