  •  The REASON the Repugnicans hadn't had a majojrity (3+ / 0-)

    is the very same reason they're so likely to keep it now.  Money + maps = majority.  For 100 years the Democrats controlled the electoral maps, and because they could do that, they could maintain a majority in the NCGA.  Until 2010.  Which was a census year.  Which is what made it so critically important.  And now the bad guys have control of the maps.

    I find the reports of the bad-and-getting-worse public opinion more encouraging than the idea that we might have to wait until 2020 or even later to reclaim a majority in the legislature.  But if the Repugnicans keep shooting themselves in the foot, maybe they'll do the job for us.

    I'll believe corporations are people when one comes home from Afghanistan in a body bag.
