ENGAGE: Write a letter to the editor | Comment on this story
Pat McCrory is threatening to run for governor again, because apparently he isn’t sure he’s done making a national laughing stock out of us, while robbing us of millions of dollars and thousands of jobs, thanks to HB2.
Mr. McCrory (confession, I’m only calling you Mr. because it feels so good not to have to write Gov. before your surname anymore), please watch the video below and know that we, the North Carolina voters, will treat you the way that chair did.
We didn’t need you then, and we certainly don’t need you now. (And apparently neither did that chair.) We don’t need you on the airwaves, and we don’t need you in the Governor’s Mansion.
Please consider that if you fade into the background, before long you’ll be so completely forgotten that no one will even bother to chase you down an alleyway screaming “Shame!”
Come on, doesn’t that sound nice?
