A story that is definitely not ready to die yet:

NBC-17 Investigates: Documents shed light on what McCrory knew before controversial vote fb.me/HLM7iFn9
If Myers Park Pat wants to blame somebody for why this incident is coming back to haunt him, he need only look in the mirror. He's gone out of his way to conceal so many aspects of his career (whatever that is), any information that surfaces is valuable. And when that information reveals base and unethical behavior in a candidate for Governor, the value to the voters of this state becomes incalculable.

We'll start out with some meme-busting:
NCPoliticalBeat 9:52am via dlvr.it [Off the Record] Intolerance at Elon bit.ly/WtXpfU #NCPol
This should be a no-brainer, but: fighting against intolerance is not intolerance, at least not in the illogical "false equivalency" approach the right is trying to sell. Especially in the post-Citizens United era when companies like Chick-Fil-A can spend unlimited monies from their general funds (retail profits) to warp our public policy, we must hold them accountable when they (with malice and aforethought) target a subset of our population with an eye towards dehumanizing them. That's not intolerance, it's called standing up for each other. It doesn't get more American than that.

We'll start with something that's definitely not a head-scratcher:

Romney: Have to scratch your head and wonder why Obama is talking about saving Big Bird. #ncprez #ncpol
Because you idiot, aside from the fact that PBS is the greatest source of educational programming around, the funding it receives is a tiny fraction of the overall Federal budget. By setting them up as a strawman to strike down, you've proven how incompetent you'd be as a President.

See if you can spot the irony in this Tweet:

The biggest threats to U.S. manufacturing are free trade policies and the ability of mega-corporations to offshore American jobs with no consequences, and the GOP fully supports both of these job-killing activities. But don't take my word for it, here's James Copland (of Copland Industries) himself:

We'll start with something that should represent the final chapter, but probably doesn't:

ALERT: Company formerly known as Blackwater to pay $7.5M fine for illegal weapons exports wral.com
Strangely enough, I don't blame Blackwater/Xe/Academi for fomenting violence worldwide, I blame our government. And that includes you and me. We made the horrible mistake of employing mercenaries to do the jobs that DoD and the State Department should have done for themselves, and, in the process, we created a monster.
