Absolutely! Our state house and senate have been under control of Democrats for 100 years, and Democrat governors for all but 12 years since 1901.

What would you expect?

Excellent post!

BRAVO!

Most attempt to not be hoist by their own petard ... while others seem to thrive on it.

Yeah, it's been pretty ugly. Holshouser served for 8 years, Martin for 4, and the rest have all been from the outlaw party! /forums/images/%%GRAEMLIN_URL%%/grin.gif

And Easley just entered a guilty plea last year for campaign finance fund violations for operating a slush fund.

We've had our share of winners over the years!
