Even better headline: "Andrew Dunn at Longleaf Politics has shed whatever cloak he was wearing on neutrality, and has gone full-on right-wing nutter."

You're not wrong, Jamie. The way the Federal government allowed Reconstruction to morph into a late-stage slavery era is a big reason why these jackasses can't let go. They've been allowed to discriminate for so long they don't know how to *not* do it.

Ah, apparently you were under the impression the NC GOP actually had standards, or anything resembling organizational integrity. Sorry.
As long as government makes critical decisions with big consequences for our personal and professional lives, Americans will try to populate the government with like-minded officials and to sway the decisions of those officials. #ncpol #ncga https://t.co/dunzPnEzbZ

By "Americans" you mean extremely wealthy individuals who can afford to throw $150,000 here and $225,000 there to get people elected that will cut their taxes saving them millions. Make no mistake, any defense of Citizens United is simply a tacit approval of corruption, no matter how many times you say "Americans."

Yep, pretty much. When the DOJ was trying to stop Terry Johnson from racially profiling Latinx here in my county, they were "overreaching." But ICE militarily invading cities in defiance of progressive Sheriffs is just fine. The common denominator is bigotry, in case you missed it.
Fun weekend in Asheville. A little hiking, a little #CraftBeer , and some great food. Now, busy week at work— double duty for #InFocusNC , hosting @NCCapTonight and of course some reporting on #ncpol. First stop- #hpmkt pic.twitter.com/DKqYudCe9y

Probably a perfect time to hit the trails. Not green enough yet for my likins', but that also means very few bugs...

Yeah, but also, no. Trump doesn't have the mental capacity to come to any sort of "realization" about his mistakes. He will just blame it on something else (that has nothing to do with it), and then develop an equally idiotic plan to fix that imaginary thing.
23 days into absentee voting for the April 30 Democratic, Republican, and Libertarian special primaries, #nc03 has a TOTAL of 30 votes cast. By county:
Carteret, Lenoir, Pamlico 2 each
Currituck, Pasquotank, 1 each
remaining 9 counties ZERO#ncpol

That's...weird, to say the least. And more than a little unsettling, considering this guy might end up winning:

Dog help us...
Given enough time & money (as this Georgia establishment incumbent has) it’s easy to find enough illegal votes to force new elections. Why wouldn’t this happen in NC, since we have over 900k missing (called “Inactive”) NC voters? @NCLeg #ncpol https://t.co/JCaDFuZXa8

Seems like a well-rounded group of...what the hell is he wearing? If it wasn't for the belt loops, I'd swear it was a burlap sack. I'm not saying you have to wear a suit, but come on...
Trump violates the Constitution. Does Congressman George Holding even care? He’s tolerated him violating campaign finance laws, so no he does not care if Trump ignores the laws and rules of our country. Disgraceful coming from a former federal prosecutor. #NCPOL https://t.co/tcL4stVwNJ

You'll have to wait for an answer. Rip van Holding is still napping, resting up for his 3-week campaign "surge" scheduled for next Fall.
Look who’s going to bat to defend the pharma corporations and their “right” to jack up the cost of life-saving drugs.
Next time you hear about someone selling their furniture to afford insulin, remember who helped the idle rent-seekers at Big Pharma price-gouge.#ncpol https://t.co/IFpPdMkTfV

Does not surprise me a bit. Ever since the GOP lost the House, Mark Meadows has been trying to out-asshole himself whenever he can.
On that disgusting note, here's your Onion:
