Well, Governor Perdue’s stepped in another mess. She’s announced she’s going to sidestep the normal nominating process (she set up) to pick a new Supreme Court Judge before Pat McCrory takes office.
 
Perdue explained how her plan made sense, saying, I can’t imagine that the person I select will be anything but the finest jurist in North Carolina, or that anybody will have any problem with it.
 
Uh-huh.
 
She added, I’m going to make the appointment on paper, in my mind, and I’m going to pick up the phone and call them [the nominating committee]…
 
So, here’s the Governor’s plan: The nominating committee doesn’t have time to vet a candidate so she’s going to pick someone on paper, in her mind then run it by the committee (that didn’t have time to vet a candidate) to be sure the finest jurist in North Carolina doesn’t have any flaws.
 
It was more temptation than Senate Leader Phil Berger could resist. He pointed out, well, politely, that there was a flaw in the Governor’s logic.
