Well, Coy Privette is negotiating his resignation from the Cabarrus County Board of Commissioners. Fabulous. Just one more twist to this bizarre story. Why should Privette have any say on who replaces him?

Is he gonna pull a Larry Craig and resign — then try to unresign too?

Privette’s statement sums it all up, but not in the way he meant: “All Republicans talk about being conservative. But there’s a difference between talking the talk and walking the walk.”

Yeah, talk family values, hire streetwalkers. You’re done here, Coy.
