Because it's good to have a record of evil

A good move from the NC Democratic Party

Today, on the first day of early voting, The North Carolina Democratic Party launched NCGOPCorruption.com, a website built to explain the decade long history of corruption in the NCGOP.

Forest, Tillis, Berger, Moore and the NCGOP have no delusions in how they are running their operation, absolutely for themselves and no one else. Our state cannot take any more of this culture of corrupt Republican control, this November North Carolinians will make their voices heard at the ballot box.

Day 203

When I went into quarantine back in March, I figured we'd be in for at least a year of misery. No one really knew how this new virus would behave and the misinformation coming from the federal government was mind-boggling. We still don't know as much as we need to know, and the misinformation has gotten exponentially worse.

Don’t get distracted

Some are saying North Carolinians are now left with an unenviable choice in the US Senate. We can vote for a guy who texted with a woman (not his wife) in California. Or we can vote for a guy who stood by silently while 200,000 people died in the pandemic for no good reason. It's a no brainer.

Cal says he's not dropping out of the race for US Senate, and he shouldn't. He made a mistake and he apologized. I'm willing to drop it. Because when it comes to decency and morality, I'll take a little texting over accessory to mass murder any day.

What's left to say?

Not long ago, I was fed up to my eyeballs with Thom Tillis and his anti-American behavior. The election wasn't in full swing, and Tillis was scrambling to position himself as some kind of bipartisan hero working for all our citizens. In the months that followed, up to this very day, Tillis has devolved into the ugliest and most vile of creatures imaginable.

Sunday thinking

I don't know what to do with the upsurge of violence that's happening on the right. My gut instinct is to go out an buy another gun, which certainly wouldn't do much to help the cause of peace. I just don't know what else to do in the face of insane Trump Republicans.

Weekend open thread: Reclaiming red

I found myself lamenting the loss of words and ideas in liberal discourse. For example, we should be the ones who claim and define what freedom means. And we should never cede ground when it comes to something as basic as a color.

Two years ago, we ran a very successful campaign against GOP constitutional amendments using red yard signs. Now I've just ordered a red hat!
