Social media is a wild frontier for campaigns, but there are some basic truths: Don't post annoying things, don't whine, and don't lie. Except if you're Trump, in which case annoying, whiny lies are all there is. Looks like Dandy Forest is following the Orangeman's lead. Pretty dumb.

This chart shows the number of pro/con comments on today's Dandy post, the fifth post in which he's whined about not getting time in the spotlight. These posts are vague, sloppy attacks on virtually everything Governor Cooper is doing, with no proposals or recommendations for doing anything differently. People are right to be calling Dan Forest out, and they're doing so by a margin of 2:1.
