Tuesday Twitter roundup

Good news, for now:

Not sure whose bright idea this was, but you don't just casually uproot hundreds of workers if you're being thoughtful.

Okay, LaWana may be a couple sandwiches shy of a picnic, but Trump is full-on, bat-shit crazy. Just thought I would clarify that.

I second this emotion.

Never thought I'd catch myself admiring Pittenger, but that is one of the funniest things I've seen in a while.

She misspelled "deceive."

Yeesh. Dude is two years younger than me. Wait, did I say that outloud? What I meant to say was, "Wishing him a fast recovery," or something along those lines that normal people say.

If Berger really wanted to leave those decisions up to local leaders, he wouldn't have pushed that stupid monument relocation bill. Talk about government overreach, it doesn't get much worse than that.

Kakistocracy, on steroids...

Very interesting:

Evelyn Cain is 89 and legally blind. She’s lived near downtown Bladenboro since just after World War II and says she hasn’t missed an election since. State records show Cain has voted by mail repeatedly over the years.

But last November, her vote went uncounted. Her absentee ballot is one of roughly 3,400 that state records show as requested but not returned in last year's 9th Congressional District general election.

Eight of the 13 people in Bladenboro 2 who said someone suggested they request an absentee ballot also said they never received that ballot, including Wendy Smith.

Smith said she requested ballots for herself, her son and her daughter after Dowless, whom she’s known for a long time, pulled up to her driveway. Smith is Deaver's mother. Both said their ballots never arrived.

"We lose mail here," Smith said.

Kassie Fores said she requested a ballot for herself and her husband, Roy, at Dowless' request, after she ran into him at a Dollar General store. At their home in Bladenboro, the couple said they never got anything in the mail.

Which brings up another issue: In a lot of rural areas, mail is delivered (and picked up) by part-time contract workers, and not actual Postal employees. It would come as absolutely no surprise to find out Dowless was paying them, too.

On that worrisome note, here's your Onion:

I like a man who can Get Things Done.
