Pat McCrory

An open letter to Pat McCrory

Dear Deputy Assistant Governor.

Of all the disappointments I have known in my 40 years as a North Carolinian, none matches my deep disappointment in you. Over the past three years, you have proven yourself to be both a liar and a political coward, an empty suit of the vilest sort. You betrayed millions of women by signing new abortion restrictions into law, and you have staffed your administration with a collection of self-interested hack that make Mike Easley look like a choir boy.

I told you so

Pat McCrory hoodwinked a majority of North Carolina voters in 2012, but some of us knew all along he was a shady character. Pat is cut from the same block of wood as Mike Easley and Jim Black. The only difference is where they learned flimflamming. In McCrory's case, it was mostly at Duke Energy.

Phatic Pat

Our word of the week is phatic.

Denoting or relating to language used for general purposes of social interaction, rather than to convey information or ask questions. Utterances such as hello, how are you? and nice morning, isn't it? are phatic.

It occurs to me that 99% of the communications we hear from Mayor Pat would qualify as phatic. Meaningless utterances, full of sound and fury, signifying nothing.

Jobs? Sorry, no, we're busy with this abortion stuff

Having doubled down on his lie of the year, Guvnor Pat keeps trying to insist that he didn't break his campaign promise about abortion. The trouble is, everyone knows he's lying. And the Democrats called him out on his lies.

Democrats have wasted no time jumping on Gov. Pat McCrory’s decision to sign the abortion bill, which triples the required waiting time.

The nuts of North Carolina

In parts of the Triad, eastern North Carolina and other areas of the state, there's no such thing as being too conservative (right wing). In fact, being too conservative (right wing) remains a work in progress. The ongoing shell shock from ludicrous Republican ideas and legislation never before seen is apparent. The Cambridge Dictionary defines "outdo" as "to be, or do something, better than someone else." With North Carolina Republican politics, "outdo" is defined as "to be, or do something, more absurd or insane than anybody else." The bar for insanity is infinite. A never ending black hole.
