Bloodshed in Buncombe

If moderate Republicans in Watauga County are justifiably depressed that their party is wholly represented by the likes of Phil Templeton, Jim Hastings, and David Blust, the local split in GOP ranks doesn't hold a candle to the warfare going on in the Buncombe County Republican Party. Thanks to Screwy Hoolie for bringing us up to date.

The Buncombe County Republicans are experiencing a power struggle between ungrammatical conservative extremists and Ron Paul acolytes who want a libertarian mind-meld between dope-smoking hippies and true constitutionalists ... or something like that. It's nature red in tooth and claw, sufficient to make a Marine blanch.
