Tuesday Twitter roundup

Worth remembering:

Worth forgetting:

I'm pretty sure the original Sons of Liberty were more concerned with cementing friendships and avoiding being strung up than they were insulting casual passers-by. But that doesn't sell t-shirts.

In the category of "where are they now?":

Well, it looks like Junior Berger is afflicted with the same disease as DAG McCrory, that adversely affects his ability to make sound hiring choices. Does Berger have a bus that needs to be driven? Because Dallas can probably do that, if he can get over the insulting nature of such an occupation.

At first I was going to write something in defense of Ellmers, and then my Left Brain said, "Dude! What the hell is wrong with you? Ellmers is an etch-a-sketch toy waiting for the next person with a fancy checkbook to scribble her new set of instructions. Let the RWNJ fringe take her apart."

Left Brain may be right, but that tone is totally unnecessary. ;/

Don't know Bob Rucho personally, but I've read enough of his writing to "get the feel for it." This doesn't feel like Rucho. As a matter of fact, it "feels" like that jackass Tim Peck, which would be downright hilarious if it turned out to be true.

Speaking of the Moffitteers:

Very hard to digest:

Moffitt is behind the Raleigh Digest, a 48-page tabloid that became the subject of local controversy after it appeared along with the glossy advertising inserts inside more than 10,000 copies of the Asheville Citizen-Times on Nov. 27, the day before Thanksgiving.

“It’s not paid political advertising. This is a new competitor in the news market,” Moffitt said. “…The frustrating part of being an elected official is the only avenue to get that information out is the mainstream media. And after serving in an elected position I see how slanted that news media is.”

Riiight. They're "slanted" because they called you to task for acting like a big-government bully and taking control of their drinking water, and for pointing out your service to ALEC. Is there any mention of ALEC in your Raleigh Digest? Didn't think so. And you can't have one Tim without the other:

Comments Post a Comment

"their failed effort to pass a bill that would hide public notices"

I guess this is why we need The Raleigh Digest.

This bill you are referring to is HB504: Local Electronic Notice. This bill would not 'HIDE' public notices. It simply allows notices of local governments to be published electronically in lieu of or in addition to the required publication in a 'paper of record.'

One more Moffitt-related Tweet, and then we'll go get some fresh air:

Wanna know why your link is dead, Timmy? Because when the terms "local governments" and "appropriations" are used by you, it usually means you're trying to steal something.

Holy crap. I've said before that I abhor the use of prostitution as an analogy for politics/business, but this story just screams it. I hope Searle took a shower and got a shot of penicillin afterwards...

More about this fine institution:

"proggie"? Surrounding the word "progressive" with various derogatory adjectives is not contemptible enough? And the irony of doing this in a Tweet that complains about someone else name-calling is almost Onion-worthy. As to the Civitas article, Colonel Francis needs to understand something: when you do the dirty work for an oppressive government leader, especially when that dirty work involves trying to stifle the free speech of another, you have met the classical definition of the thug.

Once I saw this, I knew I had to post it:

Is it just me, or do you get the impression the meerkat is the mature "elder" in this group? He is the only one who is aware enough to pose for the camera...

It's kind of hard to upstage a bathing meerkat, but if anybody can do it, the Onion can:

:) That one caught me off-guard. Now I've got to clean the coffee-spatter off my keyboard.


Round 'em up

This one from the best Pat Parody tweeter belongs in the corral:

"I will have a priority on building relationships with the minority caucus. I want to put substance behind those campaign speeches." -- Thom Tillis, Nov. 5, 2014
