One of the worst bills in recent memory, SJR1456, “A Joint Resolution Honoring the Dook Blue Devils on Winning the 2010 National Basketball Championship,” was passed yesterday in a joint session of the General Assembly.
Whereas the previous men’s basketball national champion, the University of North Carolina, is an asset to the state because of its beautiful campus, excellent academic standards and all around good people, most of which hail from North Carolina, this year’s champion, Dook University, is a blight on North Carolina’s landscape complete with carpetbaggers, faux gothic architecture and employees like Tim Tyson (remember him – he was arrested alongside Rev. Barber at the Wake School Board meeting).
One must travel no further than the campus of Dook University to find what might as well be the state university of New Jersey, a state known for little more than being across the river from New York City and being the home state of extreme liberal Bruce Springsteen. While Dook deserves some credit for having the skill to move through what must have been the easiest NCAA Regional bracket since the tournament expanded to 64 teams, the General Assembly should defer to New Jersey, the spiritual home of the university, on honoring the team. It should be New Jersey Governor Chris Christie (New Jersey’s only redeeming quality) signing the resolution honoring Dook – not Governor Perdue. She is too busy being the “Jobs Governor” anyway. For these reasons, SJR1456 is this week’s Bad Bill of the Week.
