Update: (h/t The Daily Caller)
An audio recording of Gov
Hugo Bev Perdue’s fascist remarks has surfaced. Her office sticks by their story that it was a joke hyperbole. I’m sure the next step is to contest the definition of “joke.” She’s no Ron White that’s painfully obvious, but as a resident of North Carolina I’d rather see her on the comedy circuit than in the Governor’s Mansion.
Bev Perdue, the Democrat Governor of North Carolina, made this shocking statement this morning…
“You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that. The one good thing about Raleigh is that for so many years we worked across party lines. It’s a little bit more contentious now but it’s not impossible to try to do what’s right in this state. You want people who don’t worry about the next election.”
Even now, several hours after I first heard about this the only thing I can come up with are questions… and some painfully obvious answers…
Has any American ever publicly suggested such a thing? (If one did it was probably brought up during the McCarthy Hearings.)
Does she actually think any American would accept such a suggestion? (She’s going to hate the Tea Party worse than Maxine Waters!)
Is she stupid? (I know, she’s a Democrat and at this point its rather obvious but its still a question I ask myself)
Does she think this is Venezuela? (What were her Middle School grades in geography?)
Are Democrats that afraid of the next election? (Bwahahahahaha!)
And the ones that put the icing on the cake…
Did she overhear this somewhere and decide to float a trial balloon? (Do you think she came up with it on her own?)
Is this Obama and the Democrat Party’s re-election strategy? (It sure plays nicely with the class warfare and racial strife strategy they’re fomenting now doesn’t it. In simpler terms, does a fat dog fart?)
Kenny, this nudge registered on the Richter Scale.
