Governor flippantly defends decision to deliver cookies to pro-choice protesters

Cookies [1]Unless you read all the way to the bottom of Sarah Ovaska’s remarkable post below [2], you may have missed this amazing nugget Ovaska culled from the Guv’s interview with WFAE in Charlotte yesterday:

“When asked by [interviewer] Collins about whether, his July delivery of a plate of cookies [3] to abortion rights protestors outside the Governor’s Mansion was a good idea in hindsight, McCrory remarked he didn’t care.

‘I don’t care, I felt like doing it,’ he said. ‘Who cares?’”

Good lord, is this man really serious?

Look, reasonable people can have differeing positions on the important and emotionally-charged matter of abortion and reproductive rights generally, but when the elected leader of nine-million people engages in such patently juvenile behavior [4] and then doubles down on it with such a dismissive and downright lunkheadedly disrespectful statement as this, all a body can do is slap one’s forehead and get ready for the next round of jokes at our once-respected state’s expense.
