” I ran out of gas. I... I had a flat tire. I didn’t have enough money for cab fare. My tux didn’t come back from the cleaners. An old friend came in from out of town. Someone stole my car. There was an earthquake. A terrible flood. Locusts! IT WASN’T MY FAULT, I SWEAR TO GOD! “
Wha..??? We can’t POSSIBLY report on this!
North Carolina is a critical swing state, and Princess Barack needs it to win!!!
How many other Rat governors got advanced notice?

“errors crept in” is one of my faves.
Don’t forget the tree-hugging Wiccan folks in Black Mountain.

Got it! The Blues Brothers (Belushi to Carrie Fischer).
Seriously, though, I think that people have Rat Scandal Fatigue. Criminal, immoral, or unethical behavior is not only normal, but actually encouraged and expected, if its goal is to produce the desired “progressive” results.
