N.C. governor brushes off criticism amid weekly protests

Raleigh, North Carolina (CNN) - Washington no longer has a monopoly on bitter partisanship. Much of the nation's political rancor has spread to statehouses across the country. And the weekly demonstrations outside the North Carolina legislature, dubbed "Moral Mondays," are only the latest example.

As they have for three months

    He ran saying he won't change abortion rights in the state. Now look where he stands. He's a flat out LIAR!!!! The war on woman in these red states is reprehensible and I hope the people stand up and make their voices heard and replace these radical legislators.

    North Carolina could host a reality show called "Republicans Gone Wild".

    "Washington no longer has a monopoly on bitter partisanship. Much of the nation's political rancor has spread to statehouses across the country."

    Maybe voters will start paying attention to local races, rather than leaving those boxes blank on presidential election days because they don't know or care about state legislatures. Or, even worse, just not voting in off-year elections. All politics is local. And with 8.8% unemployment in North Carolina while their local officials attempt to turn most of the state's women into brood mares for infertile rich white ladies, the "locality" of politics starts hitting home in a rather nasty way, doesn't it.
