North Carolina's governor has given his support to Hillary Clinton, as the News & Observer reports:
After months of courting, Gov. Mike Easley today gave U.S. Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton a rousing endorsement for president.
"I've been accused of being persistent and downright aggravating," Easley said, as he stood beside Clinton at N.C. State University's McKimmon Center. "But this lady right here makes Rocky Balboa look like a pansy."
By backing Clinton, who trails by double digits in his state, Easley ensures that he will get a good deal of the credit if she pulls off an upset win. But wouldn't a lot of people say that "pansy" is an anti-gay slur?
