Tuesday Twitter roundup

Nail on the head, right there.

Another example of blatant projection by Conservatives, who have been screaming (literally) about election fraud for 14 months straight.

I am intrigued...

Nobody's paid much attention to candidate for US Senate, Marjorie Eastman, because the swinging trio of Republican men running for Dick Burr's seat -- McCrory, Budd, Walker -- have sucked up all the oxygen. Only now, Marjorie Eastman is suddenly in the press, because a new super-PAC founded by tycoon Fred Eshelman has been spending $1 million getting her name out there. The PAC is called "Restore Common Sense," and in the best of all possible worlds, Marjorie Eastman could be a runaway good bet to win a normal Republican primary -- distinguished ex-military careerist and smart, normal woman. Damn impressive on paper. Her Wikipedia article -- must reading. There's no indication there that she's any kind of conservative culture warrior. She's all about veterans and wrote a well received book, "The Frontline Generation: How We Served Post 9/11."

She had combat experience in both Iraq and Afghanistan. "She was ranked the #1 Military Intelligence Company Commander in Eastern Afghanistan for the deployment cycle of 2009-2010, awarded the Bronze Star for meritorious service as a combat commander and received the Combat Action Badge" (website). She announced her candidacy back last October and was largely ignored until Fred Eshelman decided to help her.

But the big question is, how does she feel about Trump? Somebody needs to ask her...

Okay, 1) you're running for a District Court judgeship, so there should be no "interpretation" of the law. That's for higher courts to deal with. 2) the laws referenced in the Bible were either Hebrew law or Roman law, neither of which have any bearing on U.S. (or NC) statutes. And 3) promoting a particular religion from the bench makes a mockery of that Constitution's very First Amendment. All 3 of those are obvious, which calls into question the "knows the law" part of your sales pitch.

Not even if you had free doughnuts. Well, I might swipe a couple and then bolt...

Dude, you really need to get out more. Calling Ray a "hack" is almost a compliment.

But he's an old white dude! He doesn't need direct experience to make rules and laws and such...

On that sarcastic note, here's your Onion:

See what I did there?
