Our Lame Duck
A dead give-away of his status within his own fulminating party is that not one of the right-wing Republican blogs that I frequent on a regular basis give him any support, or even any coverage. They don't talk about him at all. He's a non-person to them, like he is to the rest of us but for different reasons. It's like they're embarrassed for him.
The criticism of His Limpness has been withering and fairly universal. Practically every daily newspaper in the state has pointed out his lies, his witlessness, his obvious panic at the thought that someone somewhere might ask him a QUESTION.
As Gary Pearce pointed out yesterday, McCrory missed his opportunity to establish an independent identity by vetoing the abortion bill, something he actually promised during the campaign last fall. "But he caved," states Pearce, and thus sealed his one-term fate. Now he's dogged on a daily basis by protesters with signs.
