    Remember when Jim Martin, Fetzer, and that crowd in Raleigh wanted the sell Pullen Park to real estate developers, so the one-percenters could build nice homes on the water and keep the commoners out? Ahhh, good times. I think I'll go look at Liz Taylor's jewelry, that I just bought for $100 million. Merry Christmas, and keep voting Republican, suckers!

    Hoping by the time the primary comes to NC, Gingrich has pulled out of the race. Ron Paul 2012!!!
