Profiles in idiocy: Voting isn't important 'cause we already decided

Rucho is either really stupid or terminally arrogant:

Rucho didn’t seem fazed by it all, telling the News & Observer that Senate Republicans discuss controversial bills ahead of time and know how their members will vote so he was confident that the bill putting a lower cap on the state’s renewable energy would pass.

In Rucho's mind, "Committee" = "Committed." Apparently the meeting and the talking and the voting are non-essential aspects of the process, easily dispensed with if they threaten to slow things down. Maybe we should teach that in the new "Founding Fathers" required historical courses.

Rucho and Lewis: We're the scumbags in charge now, so screw you

Bob Rucho and David Lewis, two kings of slime in the General Assembly, responded last week to a News and Observer editorial call for fair redistricting. True to form, they dragged out the old canard, wondering aloud where liberals were when Democrats were doing their own gerrymandering.

Where were your scathing editorials then?

The stars of the evening were the masterminds behind the airport heist, Rucho, Brawley, and Samuelson. The mood turned ugly quickly. Good stuff.

This is my first post so if the link doesn't work could someone post a new one?
