Republican idiocy

Party like it's 1999 Repubs!

Howard Coble's retirement dinner brought out a bunch of statewide and local GOP dignitaries even if it didn't bring in any big bucks

The High Point Enterprise was leaked a copy of the email and other information reported to be preliminary financial numbers on the event. The information was provided by an anonymous source.
The information provided a list of revenue generated totaling $13,000. But total expenses amounted to $17,296, according to preliminary accounting provided to the Enterprise. The expenses included the dinner, a band and use of a piano and printing of programs.

Oh how they claim to be the party of fiscal responsibility, but they must not have learned their numbers.

More illiteracy evident in DAG McCrory administration

The assault on the English language continues unabated:

On Sunday, though, the official Twitter account of North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory tweeted with pride that the patches on the green jackets were made in the Tar Heel State – and made double-bogey in the process.

“Great to see the patches on the infamous green jackets at @The_Masters are made in Weaverville, NC!” McCrory’s account tweeted.

But the green jackets aren’t exactly infamous – infamous, according to Merriam-Webster, means, “having a reputation of the worst kind; notoriously evil.”

This was not a typo. Apparently whoever wrote this Tweet was under the impression that "infamous" meant "really famous," something a 3rd grader might get confused, if he or she had been avoiding homework.

Can I just go ahead and throw up right now? Thank you. Speaking of throwing up:

Even Republicans tiring of Wos' blithering double-speak

"If I didn't have to waste so much time thinking up lies to tell you, I might get something done."

Lawmakers publicly aired their frustrations with a string of problems at Wos' agency, from difficulty getting budget data to IT problems affecting Medicaid providers and patients alike, and said it could jeopardize their willingness to move forward with the governor's Medicaid reform initiative. Wos responded that her agency is being "micromanaged" by state lawmakers.

Asked to clarify, Wos said federal and state requirements for reporting are onerous, and lawmakers' additional requests for information are an extra burden.

"We beg – ask only what you need from us and not more. We have an incredible amount of reports that we have to present to you," Wos said. "Set your goals, set your expectations and allow us to get there," she told the panel, "allowing people to do what they need to based on their portfolios once you establish what you would like."

Errr...what? On second thought, don't even try to explain it, because that will just make things worse.
