"The fallout continues in the newly insane state of North Carolina after Wednesday's bag job of a veto override vote in which the Republicans took advantage of a 9/11 memorial ceremony to ram through a vote with most of the Democrats busy Never Forgetting elsewhere. The move has been roundly condemned by the state's press; the Charlotte Observer apparently has taken to writing its editorial commentary with a headsman's ax.
