In an article in The Daily Tar Heel about college students trying to lobby Republican members of the General Assembly in a (vain?) effort to divert them from their foolhardy goal of crippling public education in this state ... Rep. Bill Faison (D-Caswell) ruefully commented on the intractability of this new crop of Republicans like Sen. Dan Soucek:
“In terms of changing them, I’m not sure if you had a nuclear bomb over there you could change them.”
Soucek, in fact, was interviewed for the article and was making all those gurgling sounds that are meant to indicate empathy with those about to be bludgeoned to death for ideology. Yada yada yada. Whining about how haaaarrrd it is to be a state senator does not cover the facts of how you vote, Senator.
