This reaction to The Memo, from one of North Carolina's more articulate conservatives:
There are plenty of folks on the right — even some employed by non-profits — who engage in hardball political tactics. This current media circus could be played out with a number of conservative-leaning groups in the spotlight. (There but for the grace of God go we.) Stop acting so shocked by political hardball talk. It sounds about as sissy as expressing shock about how hard those football players slam into each other.
