This weekend’s piece by Taylor Batten in the Charlotte Observer kinda nails the governor’s image obsession. Maybe he is taking a lot of shots and snark, but he’s the governor. Even without the stumbles of the first year he’d be taking heat. I won’t delve into the psychology of it, but I will offer some advice.
This morning, just light the damn tree and wish everyone a Merry Christmas and a glorious holiday season. Don’t say a word about how the press doesn’t understand you or talk about how some people have forgotten the meaning of the season. Don’t even think about mentioning the “war on Christmas” thing. Just relax, enjoy yourself and smile. A lot.
Please don’t screw this up. Thanks in advance.
