You might have missed it in all the talk about Governor Bev Perdue’s decision not to seek reelection, but the unhinging of House Speaker Thom Tills continued this weekend.

Tillis, who a few weeks ago compared the Charlotte Observer to roadkill because of its coverage of the unannounced midnight legislative session, this weekend sent out a Facebook message “resigning” himself to this:

The continued partisan and sometimes ruthless antics of the left aided by some in the mainstream press, will continue to threaten or stifle legitimate efforts to improve the situation in North Carolina for all involved

Mark Binker has the story on his Capital Beat blog, but Binker’s colleague Doug Clark, an editorial writer at the News & Record,  has the best take on the latest Tillis tirade. 

WSOC-TV in Charlotte talked with Tillis’ spokesman Jordan Shaw, who tried to explain what Tillis really meant and finally said “it’s just his personality.”
