Moffitt for speaker. Please

That settles it. I know who I’m pulling for to succeed Thom Tillis as house speaker. I’m with Tim Moffitt.

My reasons are simple. I want somebody who gives me plenty of fodder for my blog. Nobody will fill that role quite as well as Representative Moffitt. Moffitt is almost a parody of the bumbling movie politician who is so dumb he can’t even succeed at petty corruption. Think Mel Brooks as the governor in Blazing Saddles. Read more at PoliticsNC...


Yeah, he's shaping up

to be a real embarrassment for the GOP. After his latest stunt trying to threaten/bribe Brian Turner into not running, it's only a matter of time before Rachel Maddow or the Daily Show makes him a national laughingstock.

Anybody but...


Agreed he supplies plenty of blog fodder

but not agreed that he's inept or dumb. He's been quite successful at lining his pockets through questionable methods and intimidating lots of people by bullying and carrying out naked power plays (e.g., stealing Asheville's water system).

He's a bully. He's a nut. He's...Moffitiavellian.
