Ron Sutherland: Pondering Pat

March 4, 2014 

I remember a “This Modern World” cartoon from the height of the Bush years, where the joke was that George Bush, Dick Cheney and Karl Rove were hippie liberals who pledged to conspire together to infiltrate and then destroy the Republican Party.

Now I’m wondering whether Gov. Pat McCrory is also a closet progressive, doing his best to make sure the Republican Party is swept out of power quickly, after first doing us a favor in getting rid of some of the worst of the entrenched, old-guard Democrats. Just a theory, but it fits the facts.
