North Carolina Governor Bev Perdue says the times are too grave for us to indulge in that "election” stuff:
You have to have more ability from Congress, I think, to work together and to get over the partisan bickering and focus on fixing things. 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. I really hope that someone can agree with me on that.Spokesman Chris Mackey later said the governor was "...obviously using hyperbole to highlight what we can all agree is a serious problem...” (well, what else would he say?), but witnesses report "her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.” Anybody have a recording? (UPDATE: Jeff does!)
Every day in every way, Glenn Beck sounds less crazy. Which is not necessarily a Good Thing.

What the hell....? We had elections during the Depression. We had elections during WWII. We have never NOT had elections.
I guess if the Left can't get what it wants with elections, it's perfectly happy to suppress the electorate. And the Left knows damn well it won't hold the Senate after 2012.
