Dallas doesn't know the meaning of the word "inappropriate."
Do humans have an innate longing for freedom? Or is it superseded by a desire to simply be taken care of? @DennisPrager tackled that question at Civitas' annual conference. #ncpol #freedom https://t.co/BmnMevNugy

That is quite possibly the stupidest pair of questions I've ever seen, surpassing even "when did you stop beating your wife?" It also demonstrates clearly why Libertarians will never snag more than 3% of the electorate.

He better be rolling up his pant-legs instead, because he's in knee-deep shit over voter fraud.

Who is that? You know what, nevermind. Just another GOP drone...
Draft bill would prohibit local governments from banning scooters but would allow them to ban them on sidewalks (Wish I could give you more info from this #ncga meeting but they're having it in Kinston with no public stream to listen) #ncpol https://t.co/RSvPGIirkh

What? This is a (very expensive) Special Session, what the hell are they doing passing legislation about Bird scooters? Oh, yeah. Gotta keep them Librul cities from interfering in the free market. *sigh* It never ends.
Bladen's election director has left her post. Apparently planned to retire at year's end and took vacation / sick leave for the next month as 9th District investigation continues. #ncga #ncpol https://t.co/mzpWrgisbw

The entire world is watching a Congressional election coming apart at the seams, and she's trying to slink away? That's how conspiracy theories get started, when people do tone-deaf crap like this.

Yep, this is headed to a special election. Unless they uncover evidence Mark Harris knew about this fraud, in which case I'm not sure what would happen. Could the GOP pick somebody to serve out his term if he resigns before action is taken? What a frickin' mess.
Please call State Senator “Bully Bill” Rabon at 919-733-5963 and insist that he apologize to the woman he bullied and that he resign as chairman of the Rules Committee of NC Senate. https://t.co/aZX46QDLyq #ncpol #2A

The gun nuts are up in arms over their failure to get a toy on their Christmas wish list:
It’s a sad day in Raleigh when politicians who claim to be pro-gun act as though they are anything but. It’s an even sadder day when an honest citizen, petitioning her Representatives, is driven to tears after telling the Senator that she would relay his position on HB-746 (Permitless Concealed Carry and more) to other gun rights voters. Yet, that is exactly what happened today in Raleigh. Senator “Bully Bill” Rabon, bullied a pro-gun activist when she acknowledged Rabon’s stance on HB-746, and said that she would relay his position to other pro-gun voters.
“Bully Bill’s” Anti-Gun Stance
What was “Bully Bill” Rabon’s stance on HB-746? His stance was precisely the same stance one would expect from any random anti-gun Democrat—basically, there will be no bills moving through the senate that are not pre-scheduled, including HB-746. Translated from politi-speak, Rabon essentially said: No pro-gun bills now, and because we don’t have supermajorities after December, there will be no pro-gun bills for years to come. Sorry gun owners, but thanks for sending me back to the Senate.
Please understand that Bully Bill is the chairman of the powerful Senate Rules Committee, and so he is the senator responsible for stalling HB-746 ever since it made it to the senate at the beginning of this legislative session (that’s a looong time ago, folks). Up until now, NC gun owners have had their rights withheld by Senator Rabon, and it would seem that he aims to use his power to keep it that way.
The muckety-mucks at the News & Observer need to take note: Paul Valone is apparently not the "Influencer" they think he is, he's more like a spoiled child throwing a tantrum and calling names.

This is the future looking at us, folks. Keep your chin up.
U.S. Attorney for ED NC Robert Higdon is the one who ordered the (possibly illegal) fishing expedition looking for voter fraud in every part of North Carolina (except perhaps where it is actually occurring) https://t.co/4ijUQfL7J4 #ncpol #ncga 2/2

Wow. Did not think this story could get any crazier. Somebody needs to audit all the complaints or tips sent to that office, to see if Harris' son was aware of potential irregularities in Bladen or Robeson.
Typical boilerplate from @tmillsNC. No better than knee-jerk responses from @NCGOP. There were R's early on scene, along with D's & UNA, tweeting alerts. Doesn't fit @tmillsNC narrative, though, for there to be independent-thinking R's with integrity. We're all corrupt. #ncpol

If there were Republicans out front on this, they were few and far between. For the most part, all I've seen is Republicans pointing a finger at Democrats, just like you're doing here, and completely unaware of the irony.
On that sadly predictable note, here's your Onion:
