“#NCSen Thom Tillis (R) of North Carolina has failed to define himself as much other than a reliable Trump vote in his first term and most polling suggests that former state Sen. Cal Cunningham (D) is ahead.” #ncpol https://t.co/2N0mNdTg2A

I endorse this message. Tillis hasn't done squat for North Carolinians in the last six years. Quintessential oxygen thief.

Kudos to the Salisbury Post for standing on the correct side (I can't bring myself to say "right side" anymore) in this argument, although they shouldn't have to. But when adults switch roles with children:
Maybe parents should follow the example of their children, who are required to wear masks in school, instead of the other way around.
the obvious needs to be stated.

Hell, it shouldn't even be tied. But that's wipipo for you.
Just watched 40+ @WakeElections staff stuffing 96k envelopes for folks who’ve already requested absentee ballot. Watch for this envelope in your mail, ballots go out Friday. Also back to processing requests again. Also stream of people hand delivering requests ! /1 #ncpol pic.twitter.com/Ud2vGJNDKR

Thank you, sir. Your dedication to democracy has not gone unnoticed.
Like many, I‘m very concerned w/extreme far-left policies of Biden, Harris & Cooper. When it comes to the economy, law enforcement, farmers & our military, @realDonaldTrump is the easy choice for North Carolina. #ncpol @TeamTrump https://t.co/pR6DQjOTlB

I know you didn't just say that. Trump's trade war with China is literally killing our farmers, and he stole $80 million from NC's military just to build his stupid wall. Are you even paying attention at all?

Thanks. I needed to bark a laugh this morning, the coffee is not doing its job.

I kinda dread taking this dive, but here we go:
Freas went back to her room after getting tested and waited about four hours before receiving a call from Carolina Housing about moving in.
“You imagine moving into a dorm as a very monumental, special thing, but when you’re moving into a quarantine dorm, you have no one helping you,” Freas said. “You only brought the stuff that you can carry. It’s very disheartening.”
She was given the code to a locker outside of Craige North, which had keys to her room and food for the first night in quarantine.
“I couldn’t hear anyone talking in the hallways,” Freas said. “There was no music. It was just desolate. I just unpacked everything and went to bed that night.”
Freas received daily emails with a survey for symptom monitoring for Campus Health, but like Bass, had expected to receive phone calls.
“It was a little hard because I was like, ‘Am I being forgotten about? Am I really valued?’ Yeah, they drop off food, but that’s it,” Freas said.
The cynical part of my brain is cooking up snarky refrains, but my heart is telling it to STFU. Forced isolation is not the same thing as peaceful escape. Not even close.

"Good"? If defying the elected Governor of the state, and endangering the health of citizens during a pandemic, is your idea of good, I'd hate to see what "bad" would be.
Under the proposal, $3 million would go to boosting election officials' pay, $1 million would be used to recruit poll workers, and $1 million would be distributed in $10,000 grants to counties to support safe in-person voting in North Carolina. https://t.co/lEExIa7ZDw #ncpol

That's nice, but there are literally thousands of voting precincts in North Carolina, employing tens of thousands during elections. County Commissioners have cut more than $5 million from their already strained budgeting for election boards, and we're supposed to be impressed by this? It's a joke, and a bad one at that.
Cavuto gives Cawthorn a softball interview, says he doesn't know about sexual misconduct allegations and "most are anonymous" (not true), allows Cawthorn to only comment on one (Katrina Aldona Krulikas') and suggest it's a political hit job.#ncpol #nc11https://t.co/P7vIs0GPhg

She should take both Cawthorn and Fox News to court for that BS.
I've known Justice Newby personally for 30+ years. He was at my wedding (spoke at my rehearsal dinner), and I consider him a dear friend. He is a man of great integrity, intelligence, and fairness. NC would be most fortunate to have him serve as our Chief Justice!#NCpol https://t.co/n8TWlki4nk

I don't care if he exorcised a demon from you and then performed CPR to save your life. Newby is a bible-thumping moron who has (repeatedly) elevated "God's law" over the laws passed by democratically elected representatives, making him extremely unqualified for any bench, much less the highest one in the state.
Roy Cooper is anti business. He wants to hurt our local economy, so Joe Biden can blame the President for the bad economy. In reality, we all know the bad economy is because of Roy Cooper.#TeamForest #DanForest #NcGov#ncpol

Um, what? Roy Cooper is hurting business so Biden can blame Trump? Did your prescription run out waiting for USPS to deliver a refill?
On that inscrutable note, here's your Onion:

It would not surprise me to find out he actually said that.
