There is a teachable moment here ... and that is that it is quite dangerous to start tossing about blame without understanding WTH you are talking about ... as some members here are so prone to do.

Hoist by their own petard. Again.

According to the "DAILY BEAST" Tennessee is the most corrupt state in the nation. Due to this Tennesseans bounced 2 term democrook Phil Bredeson who was Gubner until 01/15/11.

According to the "DAILY BEAST" Virginia is the 2nd most corrupt state in the nation. Due to this Virginians bounced democrook Tim Kaine who succeeded democrook Mark Warner. Starting 01/16/10 the democrooks were out.

Number 3 was Mississippi led by republichicken Haley Barbour.

According to the "DAILY BEAST" Delaware is the 4th most corrupt state in the nation. Delaware has had a democrook as gubner since 01/19/1993.

According to the "DAILY BEAST" North Carolina is the 5th most corrupt state in the nation. North Carolina has also had a democrook as gubner 1993.

According to the "DAILY BEAST" Montana is the 5th least corrupt state in the nation. North Carolina has also had a democrook as gubner 1993.

OH DEAR! (http://www.thedailybeast.com/galleries/1610/1/)

Tenneseans get sick of corruption. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Governors_of_Tennessee)

Virginians get sick of corruption. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Virginia_governors)

Democrooks in Delaware love corruption. (http://en.wikipedia.org/w/index.php?title=Special%3ASearch&search=north+carolina+governors)

Democrats in North Carolina love corruption also it seems. (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Governor_of_North_Carolina)

If I didn't know better, I'd suspect there was a trend there.

LWW <--- Defeating truthiness with truth since 1980.

I think there is a bias against the south. Its hard to believe that IL is not #1

Losing Blago and Daley had to help.

There can really be only one reason why this particular poster would post a thread about number 5 on the list, rather than number one. And if there is any doubt, 2 more threads about corruption in North Carolina.

Too bad she didn't take time to notice that we have had total Democrat control of both the state house and senate for the past 100 years, and a Democrat governor for all but 12 of the last 111 years.

Those republicans living here are well aware of the depths of corruption the Democrats have developed over the past century.

We finally got a republican majority in Raleigh 4 months ago, although we still have a dem governor who was carried into office on the coat tails of Obama.

I actually have hope that some of this may come to an end, but I do appreciate her pointing out how corrupt the Democrats in our state have been for the last century!

The bar ... too high ... lower it and your disappointment with the left will lessen.
