The Charlotte Observer’s editorial cartoonist Kevin Siers skewers N.C. House Speaker Thom “Divide and Conquer” Tillis this morning.  

It’s a fine addition to what has been a healthy week of coverage of the story that Chris Fitzsimon broke here on Tuesday.

It will be interesting to see if the Speaker finds a way to improve on his explanation of the whole affair — something that has pretty much amounted to  “humunah, humunah, humunah.”
