House Speaker Thom Tillis and the rest of the folks at the House Republican Caucus must be pretty confident these days, judging by the Caucus website.

The first thing you see on the site is a giant font is the statement “A FEATURE GRAPHIC.”  Click on the “Promises Made, Promises Kept” tab and it says “this is an example page,” with the following in italics.

    …or something like this:
