Michael Dunne: Winners’ spoils

Winners’ spoils

I think it is reasonable for the Republican state legislature to be a whoopin’ and a hollerin’ and parading after all they won in the last election. And so it is perfectly legit for them to load the Board of Governors of UNC-Chapel Hill with representatives of their choosing. Spoils to the victors, or as the representative from Hickory so aptly put it, “We won, we won, na na na na na.”

So now they can begin the business of converting the university system to a trade and technical school so students can earn an honest living after graduation – like constructing high-end condos and shopping centers on the Dorothea Dix property.
