The other day down at the News and Observer ole Rob Christensen wrote about how Republicans in Raleigh are cocksure there’s not a chance they’ll lose their majorities in the State House and State Senate – because of redistricting.
Then he pointed out a not-so-good thing: When politicians get the idea they’re so powerful they’re invulnerable it leads to mischief.
Now, the way Republican legislators see the next election they’re safe in their castle, manning the battlements, with the drawbridge pulled up. It’ll take a mighty horde to whip them. And no horde’s in site.
But just as it was true three thousand years ago in the time of King Solomon, so it may be true today: Pride goeth before a fall.
The other morning out of a clear blue sky rumors started flying that former Governor-for-life Jim Hunt has started a mega-million-dollar Democratic Super-PAC – to whip Republican legislators. Which just might be a horde on the horizon.
