North Carolina Governor to Press: Be Nice To Me
In case you weren’t already worrying that our nation’s politicians were living on another planet, here’s another reason to believe they are:
“My job is to be nice to other people, and their job is to be nice to me. Just because they’re not doing theirs doesn’t mean I shouldn’t do mine,” [North Carolina Governor] Easley said in audio of the interview posted on The News & Record’s Web site on Christmas Day.
Since you’re reading a libertarian blog, dear reader, you probably already know that it is certainly not the job of the media to be nice to elected officials. The job is to ask questions and hold feet to the fire.
I’ll leave being nice to politicians to Keith Olbermann.
