Secret liberal attack plan to take down McCrory, GOP

With Republican Gov. Pat McCrory and other conservatives controlling state government, what’s a North Carolina liberal to do? According to one group, they should:

• “Crippl(e) their leaders (McCrory, Tillis, Berger etc.)”

• “Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern.”

• “Pressure McCrory at every public event.”

• “Slam him when he contradicts his promises.”

Those were among the talking points and action steps in a memo forwarded by Blueprint North Carolina, a partnership of advocacy and policy groups based in Raleigh, according to The Charlotte Observer's Jim Morrill.

The memo was emailed to groups last week with a warning: “It is CONFIDENTIAL to Blueprint, so please be careful – share with your boards and appropriate staff but not the whole world.”

Here's Morrill's story.

Eviscerate the leadership and weaken their ability to govern

What does eviscerate mean? I'm thinking the writer was not one of those who graduated on the basis no-show classes. This dude obviously took English or fish cleaning classes.
