“There is a narrative that he’s sort of a bumbler,” Munger said.

Responding to a reporter's question about DAG McCrory's tendency to shoot from the lip, Mike Munger was too kind by a wide margin. The narrative unfolding here is North Carolina is not that Pat McCrory is a bumbler. On the contrary, the narrative unfolding here in North Carolina is that Pat McCrory will knowingly lie at any time for no reason.

I understand that may be an endearing quality to Republicans, but for honest people who value the truth, it's a fatal flaw.

Now accepting wagers

for how long it will be before the DAG and/or his McCronies start the blame game.

Surely they'll blame the media, and probably "far-left groups", and the weather, etc. (discussed further elsewhere on BlueNC).

Place your bets for when the first blame is lobbed! Winner gets a shot at a position on the NC DHHS PR & Marketing hack team (position comes complete with crayons!).

It's all parse and parcel for Pat!

Pure unadulterated Pat:

“I’m very direct, straightforward and accurate,” McCrory said. “But with that, I recognize that sentences can be parceled, things can be taken out of context and my political opponents and sometimes the media can run with that.”

It's just so perfect, isn't it? To explain why he lies and misspeaks, he lies and misspeaks, while throwing in the old "blame the media and those leftist hippies".

P.S. We're on the lookout for those sentences that Pat is boxing up.
