Keepin' It Real

People can express a wide range of reactions, emotions, and moods. I made a funny video with my Friend Bryan O'Kelly Cox showing how some of these things are reflected in internet culture.

I read an article about Pat McCrory the other day. He said, "I want to speak to people while looking them in the eyes, so I can see their reaction." He wasn't looking me in the eye when he said this on a radio show and in response to me wanting to sit down face to face, "This is all very liberal groups using children as I think, um, props, to push a very far left agenda."

Pre-registration for teenagers to vote. That's the very far left agenda I'm pushing. My reaction, as screen captured from the above video:

Really?

                                      

McCrory also said in his recent interview, "I recognize that sentences can be parceled, things can be taken out of context and my political opponents and sometimes the media can run with that."

I'm willing to give him the benefit of the doubt. Maybe he just got caught up in the party politics. Many of us have been guilty of this. He doesn't know me. Maybe he doesn't have much experience with teenagers. Maybe he thinks politics is too confusing for us, like certain members of the North Carolina General Assembly.

Governor McCrory also said, "If I make a mistake, I'll own up to it and say we made a mistake."

The royal "we" hath made a mistake. I want no apologies from him. I think the young people of North Carolina deserve one though.

  1. Ha, if looks could kill, McCrory would be dead from your "really" look! Madison, you definitely have a dramatic artist's command of body language, for both stage and screen.

  3. What's the old line? Something like "liars figure..." He won't face you precisely because he's figured out that he'd wilt under that look. Keep facing him down.

  4. The Guv is terrified of being shown-up by an articulate, well-informed "whippersnapper" who can probably talk circles around him. Frankly, if I were in his shoes, I'd be scared of you too.
