Gary’s taking a break from blogging. Pinch-hitting today is a TAPster with a long memory:
 
Re your blog posting about Art Pope (“The Budget Pope”): A lot of people either aren’t old enough to remember, or simply don’t know, that another wealthy Raleigh businessman was indispensable to Jim Hunt in that role. 
 
John A. Williams knew where all the bodies were buried (including the ones he buried himself) and did all of the “nut-cutting” that the Governor didn’t want to dirty his hands with.  The difference is that if John A. had a personal agenda other than to make sure that Hunt was successful, we never knew it.

Gee. A "TAPster" wrote that? Really?

So, I'm wondering if ANYONE actually knows what the heck a "TAPster" is. Anyone? I guess someone is a TAPster if Gary wants us to think what they say is somehow more truthful or more important or more intelligent than other folks that read and post here on TAP.

Yeah...that's probably it. I've asked what a TAPster is any number of times here with zero response so I guess it's up to us to figure it out.

So, hey, when you read Gary or whoever else saying a "TAPster" said it here, you gotta know it's the real deal and not to be questioned and just so very true and unquestionable. No...don't question it. I mean, that's the deal, y'all.

How can it possibly be BETTER to have a powerful Daddy Warbucks sponsoring a politician behind the scenes, with his only known objective being getting his man elected, than to have an outspoken, public proponent of a respected philosophy of government supporting a range of politicians who agree with his philosophy? I thought you Dems believed in transparency, and civic involvement. Apparently those concepts are just so much chaff to throw into the eyes of the gullible, I.e., your base.
