Doctor Atkinson is a thousand times more qualified to deal with education issues than a blowhard misogynistic real estate lawyer. Or whatever your preferred clientele are.

It's a shame the mainstream media has allowed Republicans to get away with their misleading rhetoric about school spending. It seems like the only ones challenging their screwy math are blogs and advocacy groups, earning reporters a "D-" on this project.

Ah, so you're admitting that a lot of people don't already have IDs. Which also means you're okay with people having to jump through hoops to exercise their right to vote. Gotcha. That's fine for paranoid Republicans, but it's damned sure not a true Libertarian position. True colors...

Well, you can't expect them to turn down an opportunity to rake in more cash, right? If you want to institute a true free market, then everything's for sale. Including government.
Hmm… in hospital waiting rooms this morning in Republican-land Moore County, and twice overheard people bashing the GOP in Raleigh #ncga

I hear that. I don't think I ever remember a time when state-level politics has been so much on the minds of average citizens. I was getting my hair cut the other day, and the pair beside me were talking about some of the laws that had been passed. They were a little off on a few items, but I suppressed my usual urge to correct just to see how accurate their overall knowledge was. Pretty accurate. I'm not sure if we'll have to wait several election cycles for Republicans to fall off their runaway train.
Speaking of gravity:
Just In: Man falls from cell tower near Coats http://t.co/FYZbzjbgjO

Okay, so I click on the link and there is absolutely no additional information on this story, so I went to the trusty 'ol Google and typed in, "man falls from cell tower". Unfortunately, I forgot to type in "Harnett County" or "Coats" to help narrow the search, but before I could modify it, my eyes were drawn to all the other men falling from cell towers. Holy shit. They've been falling off cell towers all over the place; in Maryland, North Dakota, Nebraska, Mississippi, Alabama, Kentucky, Minnesota, Virginia, and the list goes on. I was going to make a comment along the lines of, "I wonder if they were texting", but it's really not funny. So don't laugh.

They should have figured this out by now: if Howard, or his reanimated corpse, or his disembodied head floating in a jar, show up on election day, he's going to win. It's just that simple.

Probably about 1/4 of what Chase Burns spent in the last few weeks prior to the 2012 Election to curry favor with NC Republicans. Also, please change that picture. It's...unsettling. The shit-eating-grin look went out of style sometime around 1986, I think it was.

More like this, please. Now you need to print up a few thousand of these so people can put them in their front yards. Don't just create a kick-ass graphic and hope it goes viral.

Heh. I'd vote for Marvin the Martian before I'd vote for an ALEC-drone like Moffitt.
On that humorous note, it's Onion time, baby:
