Political embarrassment in North Carolina
How did this guy get to me a precinct chairman in the Buncome County, North Carolina Republican Party? His fellow Republicans turned on him quickly, calling his comments “inappropriate and highly offensive”.
Don Yelton left his post after he was asked to resign, but refused to apologize for the comments he made on Jon Stewart’s The Daily Show.
Yelton said North Carolina’s new Voter I-D law would “kick the Democrats in the butt”. He went on to say that if the new law hurts “lazy college kids”, “so be it”. Yelton also said: “If it hurts a bunch of lazy blacks that want the government to give them everything, so be it”.
If this is the way this guy talks on national T-V, what does he say in those local Republican meetings behind closed doors?
No political party wants one of its members doing a Junior Samples/Archie Bunker impersonation on a network television show.
Our thought for today is from Elbert Hubbard:
“Genius may have its limitations, but stupidity is not thus handicapped.”
