Was Beverly Kidding? Don't Think So

Was the governor of North Carolina kidding when she said that next years congressional elections should be suspended so our representatives can forget about politics and focus on solutions? That's the excuse being offered for Democrat Beverly Purdue, but it sure doesn't sound like she was joking.

“I think we ought to suspend, perhaps, elections for Congress for two years and just tell them we won’t hold it against them, whatever decisions they make, to just let them help this country recover,” Perdue said at a rotary club event in Cary, N.C., according to the Raleigh News & Observer. “I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.”
