The big day is here:
From @cullenbrowder of @WRAL, a look at Rucho v. @CommonCause, our case challenging partisan #gerrymandering of NC congressional districts that goes to the U.S. Supreme Court on Tuesday: https://t.co/oPZKZK6FW5 #ncpol #scotus #fairMaps

Sending good vibes to Allison Riggs and others as they defend democracy for us...

For the life of me, I don't understand why Republican voters can't grasp this simple concept. I tried to explain it to Jon Hardister (at a golf tournament, no less), in an effort to get him to undo some of the new sales taxes on services like auto repair. After about fifteen minutes, there was a spark of recognition, but then some businessman horned in with, "Don't mean to interrupt..." Evil Steve wanted me to say, "And yet, here you are," but I shushed him.
I've joined Rep. Jeffrey Elmore, @KyleHallNC & @RepDebraConrad in filing HB377 to reduce state-mandated exams. This is one of the biggest concerns we hear from parents/teachers & we believe this bill will help restore balance & local control. #ncpol #ncga https://t.co/arBJBPGEoM

Local control? Hah! The day NC's Republicans start being genuinely concerned about local control they'll be ice-skating in Hell.
Dear Lord I can't unsee this #ncpol

Yeah that's...very unsettling...

You have to see it to believe it:
Glad I don't live in the 9th, because it's going to be a fricking circus.
On the same day that US Supreme Court hears NC #gerrymandering case, students at NC A&T in #Greensboro will hold a press conference Tuesday @ 10:30am in front of Gibbs Hall to highlight how gerrymandering splits their campus: https://t.co/ArUtLMXSIb #ncpol pic.twitter.com/jYUlQPgoKv

Brilliant gif. Be nice if the Supreme Court could see that, because it perfectly demonstrates the unbreakable link between racial and partisan gerrymandering.

Just another obvious lie from the master of lies.
What Americans need to know: it isn't just that there was no collusion. There NEVER was any evidence of collusion to start with.
The dossier was fake
The FISA system was blatantly abused
And DOJ + FBI execs peddled this fake conspiracy the whole time
This episode was a farce
— Mark Meadows (@RepMarkMeadows) March 25, 2019
The dossier was not fake, but even if it was, numerous indictments, convictions, and guilty pleas make your entire argument seem stupid.
I couldn’t agree more with @RepMarkMeadows. Congress must continue to investigate whether the intelligence community was weaponized against the Trump campaign.
And when elected to serve #NC03, I’ll fight alongside Rep. Meadows & others to see that investigation through. #NCPOL https://t.co/vS1HJOJyp3

You're even more of an idiot than Meadows, and that's a damn high bar.

Bless her heart. It's bad enough to be a young Republican, but a young female Republican? That's like rats for cats. Or something equally incongruous....

Yeah, it's called "hubris," and Lewis is just dripping with it.
— AHCNC (@ahcncnow) March 25, 2019
That's somewhere between disgusting and infuriating. And when you consider how many people went bankrupt trying to pay their medical bills, just so this dude can rake in all that money, it makes you want to throw something across the room. Grrr.

Oh dear god in heaven. Renee Ellmers crawls out of the woodwork. And it can't be for one of the special Congressional elections, filing time is over. Lt. Governor? Secretary of State? I don't see her "settling" for a General Assembly seat, after being in Congress. *sigh*
On that disturbing note, here's your Onion:
