It's getting hard to keep track, frankly, but here are a couple of recent North Carolina General Assembly shout-outs (for lack of a better term), this time from Bill Maher, who made the state legislature the focus of his New Rules segment on this week's "Real Time With Bill Maher" (singling out Art Pope) and from Stephen Colbert, who gives the NCGA a tip of the hat for turning the state into a "conservative Shangri-La."
Before Colbert gets to the legislature, though, the South Carolina native takes another opportunity to slam Eastern NC barbecue and even more pointedly, the city of Charlotte. Colbert: "Who makes barbecue sauce with vinegar? That's what you use to clean a toilet. And when I say 'toilet,' I mean 'Charlotte.'"
In the Colbert video below, the North Carolina stuff starts at the 4 minute mark.
