It's a great idea, but of course Republicans won't legalize marijuana. It makes too much sense.
Imagine being such a shameless, sycophantic bootlicker.
There’s literally footage of Trump watching it in real time, and there’s plenty of reporting that he was pleased with what was happening.
And his video was nothing more than fuel for the flame. https://t.co/6Wls8mr1NG

McCarthy is literally spineless. They took it out so he could wiggle deeper into Trump's severely backed-up alimentary...Okay, that's too disgusting for me to finish without triggering a gag reflex. Let's hear from McCarthy's girlfriend:

I am not opposed to telehealth in general, but blood pressure screenings during an in-person visit have saved countless lives, and so have blood tests initiated by docs and nurses during or shortly after a physical exam. There's a role for telehealth in this process, such as a follow-up to monitor the effects of treatment. But it's not like working from home vs. an office. Not even close.
My track-record is clear: I'll never waiver in my support of my constituents & our Constitution. I will proudly advocate for the common-sense, conservative principles that have been the bedrock of our district for decades.

After 8 terms in office, your "track record" still resembles that of a first-termer. But you have found time to attack LGBTQ folks, women, immigrants, and whoever else doesn't fit your Christofascist worldview. And you also tried to overturn a Presidential election, and staunchly defended Trump after he incited an insurrection that put the entire Congress at risk. You are the very poster child for gerrymandering reform, frankly, and your District should be deeply embarrassed.

Bent Woodcock! Hahahahaha...(deep breath)...hahahaha. As you can see, I'm easily entertained...

A lot more than I needed to know, bear.
The never-before hoops for GOP candidates: loyalty test to Trump, no values or guardrails, the new base is white supremacists/Proud Boys, and attempts to get corporations/Wall St to go along. Good luck with this. #ncpol @NCDemParty

It's not really that notable. Dude got his butt kicked, and gave up his House seat, in an effort to get elected to the Senate. It will be six years before either of those seats is up for grabs, and if he tried to get back in the House next year and failed (which he probably would), he would disappear into the void of political obscurity. You gotta know when to fold 'em. Dammit, now that song is stuck in my head...
The tragedy in Pasquotank County is only made worse by the confusion surrounding the horrendously bad body cam law the N.C. General Assembly passed in 2016 that created a presumption of secrecy and a convoluted process. Credit to Rep. @fairclothfor62 for this mess #NCPol #NCGA

Some of you already know the following, but Jonathan Jones is not only a former assistant district attorney and a top-notch journalism professor, he's also been the driving force behind the NC Open Government Coalition (the Sunshine Center) for several years now. So when he says this process is "convoluted," you can take that to the bank.
North Carolina is getting another member of Congress.

That's why it's more important than ever to pass a non-partisan redistricting commission. But BergerMoore won't allow it to get a floor vote.
People are raising very valid concerns about impacts on a Raleigh housing market that's already out of reach for so many, plus social and political impacts in the Triangle and beyond. #ncpol 1/ https://t.co/Z0vtzHNk2q

Yeah, that was the second thing that crossed my mind when I saw this story. That and the fact they'll have to widen I-40 again to accommodate 3,000 more commuters.
Will skip the emojis for now, but:
2022 NC Senate:
Republicans: Walker, McCrory, Banwart (Maybe: Budd, Trump)
Democrats: Smith, Jackson, Watkins, Newton, Beasley

Okay, that's more than enough D candidates. It's already looking like it will be decided by a plurality (and not a majority), but if we keep adding good candidates, that plurality might end up below 30%. Then we'll be talking runoff, when the focus should be on beating the eventual R candidate.

Honestly, I don't blame Roy for not acknowledging Robinson. Every time he hears his own name he takes that as a cue to start running his mouth, so ignoring him is the least embarrassing option.

Mark your calendars, I am in agreement with Pete Kaliner. I'm also kind of wondering why Nick Oschner thought it appropriate to go after somebody who is no longer in government? Not trying to stifle the press here, but that seems like trying to give a red meat treat to Republicans. Let's see if he has equal zest when it comes to Whatley...
On that curious note, here's your Onion:
