Never miss an opportunity to fleece your donors:
House Speaker Thom Tillis is using the strategy memo as a way to raise money. The Republican leader sent a fundraising solicitation Friday, less than a day after the story broke. “We are only three weeks into the legislative session and ultra-liberal organizations, in partnership with the Democratic Party and Democratic legislative leaders have vowed to ‘cripple’ me,” he writes.
Dude, if we could actually get the NCDP, Democratic legislative leaders and Progressive organizations to partner on anything, it would be much more newsworthy than this poorly-thought-out memo. And what the hell does "Ultra Liberal" mean, anyway? We don't have "regular" Liberals here in North Carolina with an extremist fringe. We have Dixiecrats and corporate rats, and anybody to the left of them is what I would call "sane and enlightened."
