As the Grand Duke of All Things Conservative here in North Carolina, and the Crown Prince in the Kingdom of the Puppetmaster, you are, we assume, responsible for the gleeful frenzy on the Carolina Journal website over the fall of Speaker Jim Black. Indeed, you seem to have covered almost every angle of the story, except for the small fact that the progressive community here at BlueNC and elsewhere in North Carolina have led the way in calling for the Speaker to step down.
Keep reading . . .
Puppets, on the other hand, appear to have no interest whatsoever in cleaning the filthy house in which you play. You have not called for Chuck "Delay" Taylor to explain his shady business dealings in any way. The best you've done is this pathetic column by a junior puppet, complaining that the N&O had a double standard for covering corruption. Double standard? That's rich, especially coming from the Puppet show, where double standard appears to be the only guiding principle.
And what about your silence on the erosion of civil liberties and privacy rights in America under the reign of Dear Leader? And on the criminal war of choice in Iraq? You're happy to cover national topics when it suits you, but when it might focus criticism on Friends of the Puppetmaster, mum's the word. I thought you guys were Libertarians. The truth is, you're Republican hacks through and through.
Let us know when you decide to shine the light of truth on Republican crooks and sleaze. Let us know when you're willing to look honestly in the mirror. Just stop by with a link to a credible column about Charles Taylor, for example. Or maybe about the fiscal insanity running rampant in your government. When that happens, I'll stop back by the Carolina Journal and continue to link to your stories.
In the meantime though, you're off the list of sites I check each day. Which is sad. I lose one of my reliable sources for tracking wingnut talking points. And you lose your only regular reader.
PS I would have said this on one of the Puppet blogs, but, of course, you don't allow public comments.
