It seems my Father's Day gift to Thom Tillis offended some Republicans and they took to Twitter to let me know just how they feel. Mark Cates of Asheville was offended that I would use a high holy Hallmark holiday to criticize good ol' "traditional" Thom, while No Status Quo called me a "condescending POS" as he or she hid behind the safety of a pseudonym.
Cates also said he was embarrassed for us at BlueNC. Honestly, I think it is more embarrassing to be caught holding a date on the calendar in higher regard than the real moms and dads in North Carolina who are struggling to teach, pay college tuition, provide a safe environment for raising their children, find a job, pay medical bills, and put nutritious food on the table due to Thom Tillis's failed Republican agenda.
His message on Twitter tells me that Cates is more worried about a greeting card holiday than moms and dads in North Carolina. That is most definitely worth feeling embarrassed over.
