Even Governor McCrory’s critics were ready to move on, but he won’t, for reasons that are unfathomable. Instead, he takes time out of his (we assume) busy schedule to write a letter to the Charlotte Observer about his now-famous encounter with a cook at a gourmet food store.
The letter tells us a lot more than McCrory intended. It tells us that he cannot take the slightest bit of criticism. No slight is too small to offend him. He comes off as silly, petty and self-pitying.
He should just let it go. Somebody around him should say, “You are the Governor of North Carolina. He is a cook. You’ve got more important things to do.”
As the Governor himself said in his letter, “North Carolinians deserve better.” Indeed.
