Our favorite Congressional Candidate Tim D’Annunzio is at it again. He’s enjoying widespread support as the campaign sign I saw up outside the Burger Shack in Mt. Gilead this past weekend shows. He’s also on the warpath against other Republican political leaders who, he says, are holding a $1,000 a plate fundraiser for his primary opponent. In his usual retiring way the D addresses state party chair Tom Fetzer and other Republican leaders: “I am really worried for you that think this is some political or religious game with no consequences. Do you understand it is your soul that is at stake? Again, I say REPENT.”

Over at BlueNC, there’s a discussion going on about NC’s dreadful mental health system and why people die as a result.
