Not an awful article, but I hate these 20,000 foot views of politics in the NC. Here’s some textbook insipid:
North Carolina’s curious politics are on full display in Mr. Shuler’s district, which is wedged into the state’s mountainous western corner. It includes the heavily Democratic city of Asheville, home to yoga studios and holistic medicine centers, as well as staunchly conservative hamlets scattered throughout the Blue Ridge Mountains.
You know, because nothing says ‘Democrat’ like a yoga studio.
Meanwhile, Shuler admits he doesn’t have the votes, but said he’d rather vote for himself if given no alternative.
He’s being really modest about it, too.
“I don’t know how I can be any clearer,” Shuler replied. “I can do as good a job as anybody in the U.S. Congress, because I can actually bring people together.”
‘Cause he’s special.
