I always suspected Bev Purdue of North Carolina was (as they say in NC) a complete idjit. Yup, looks like I was right. Her office is already doing everything they can to bracktrack on her comments, but it seems she wasn't really joking when she first said it. Bev Perdue | NC Governor | Suspend Elections | Jobs | The Daily Caller "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," Perdue said. "You want people who don't worry about the next election." The comment -- which came during a discussion of the economy -- perked more than a few ears. It's unclear whether Perdue, a Democrat, is serious -- but her tone was level and she asked others to support her on the idea.
