Democratic Congressman Brad Miller represents Raleigh, home to the N.C. State Wolfpack. But he is clear about his Carolina basketball loyalties.
Here's what he told AP's Christina Rexrode: "The way I deal with it is, I scream my lungs out for Carolina," Miller said. "I make no pretense that I am at all half-hearted in my support for Carolina. Nobody in North Carolina would trust a politician who claimed to be neutral on a matter as important as college basketball."
Miller told the AP that he cheered for N.C. State against Georgetown. But Duke -- no way.
"I have said very publicly that if Duke was playing against the Taliban," Miller said very publicly again, "then I'd have to pull for the Taliban."
The kicker in the AP story: "Guess who's not running for re-election."
