What are they smoking at the Washington Times?

You know North Carolina is swirling down the drain when publishers at small-town papers allow something like this to find its way into print.

...can just come over and clean the spittle off my computer display! "Courage and principled leadership" caused me to lose control laughing.

DAG McCrony wouldn't know courage or principles if they came up and offered him cookies.
