"Throw the bums out!" McCrory cries, doing his best impression of Aunt Pittypat.
Grappling for a logical reason to back up his "OhMyGawdPeopleAreRisingUp" disdain for public protest that doesn't reflect HIS views, McCrory naturally hits on "they're dirty," which is where the unimaginative always go first, and then McCrory gets a bright idea: he's really against these protests because of the danger this will mean when the Democrats come to Charlotte in 2012 for their National Convention.
[A pause while we wipe the tears of merriment from our eyes.]
Thanks, Mr. McCrory, for your touching concern for our safety, but we'll take our chances with the Great Unwashed who actually want a say in how government at every level makes its decisions.
