  •  Too close to home. (13+ / 0-)

    Since I've played in Pittsboro, and Siler City is home to 3 of my bandmates.

    I was bummed when NC went so red, and I knew McCrory was a crook from the beginning. What constantly irks me is the right's insistence that  the left is hateful and vile, when they spend so much time spewing this kind of crap.

    •  Project much? (6+ / 0-)

      They insist the left is hateful and vile, because they need a target for their hateful and vile crap.

      The like the phrase "screeched into microphones" because it honors their own, like Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, Hannity, etc.

      Protests are "liberal theater", but wearing three-cornered hats with tea bags on them and open carrying the biggest gun you can strap to your ass is far from theatrical.

      Calling someone a moron is a measured rebuttal to a person who is pointing out that you are acting against your own best interests.  

      For every point on your list, the Senator should be asked "Thom, do you project much?"

    •  It's a lovely area and some of the people (2+ / 0-)

      are fucking fabulous. I taught for one memorable year at Northwood High (making the drive from Raleigh, and piling up speeding tickets as the year progressed), and there are a lot of things about Pittsboro and Chatham County that I really love.

      And of course, it is the home of Allen and Son BBQ (the angels sing...)

      •  Pittsboro has a paper, the Chatham County Line (2+ / 0-)

        that has wonderfully written articles by intelligent, well educated authors.

        The Chatham Journal is the alternative to all those things.

        Pittsboro is a town with a strongly progressive side and a very conservative side where the conservatives are terrified by the changing demographics. This bizarre, racist screed by Goolsbee, who's from the Wilmington area, shows just how terrified of the future NC Republicans have become.

        look for my eSci diary series Thursday evening.
