I don't hardly know what to think about the vicious nature of NC House District #116 Charles Thomas' attack on his fellow Republican, Dr. Carl Mumpower, after yesterday's debate between Carl Mumpower and Congressman Heath Shuler on WWNC-AM yesterday.
I first noticed a viciousness in Thomas during the Republican primary, when he was a supporter of Governor Mike Huckabee. We are in a few of the same Yahoo! Groups, and I was surprised at the level of hatred he seemed to exhibite toward Governor Mitt Romney in several emails. Well, you know, we can all get carried away by the heat of battle to support our man. It happens to most of us.
My second notice was his statement during the Gas Crunch that threatened action against local businesses. I thought that was funny, because it was the government that he served in that caused the problem to get so bad in the fist place...with passage and enforcement of a bogus "price-gouging" law. There is no such thing, at least to capitalists...however, it is part of the Holy Sacrament of Socialism that price gouging exists, and that prices must be controlled by he heavy hand of government action.
Then, there was yesterday. I'll let you listen to the audio.
Methinks Charles Thomas doth protest too much at the word socialism. I suggest that he take a good, long hard look at himself in the mirror.
It is a very good thing that he is not running for re-election.
