weddingbells.jpgI find it hilarious that Georgia Republicans need a piece of paper to tell them to keep their pants zippered. Zippered up cause so many of them believe that not only should they rule all the women of Georgia but that they should also be in their panties. Georgia Republican Jim Coyle wants Republicans to take a pledge stating that each legislator should “Be faithful to one’s spouse and family”. Seriously grown men (and women) who stood before God and made promises to the person whom they supposedly love need to now take a pledge? If they broke their pledges to God and to their spouses, what makes us voters believe that they will actually uphold this new pledge. I mean the piece of paper that should have instilled in them the need to keep their pants zippered was that silly old paper called a marriage license.


I’m not married so maybe I don’t know all that goes with that entire marriage vows thingy. But I’m also not a farmer and I do know that planting roses in December may not yield positive results. So one would think that married Georgia Republicans would know that planting their body parts in persons not their spouses would also not yield positive results. Call me crazy for thinking that the Party of Family Values actually cared about their own families. Georgia voters already knew that the Georgia GOP didn’t care about our families – but dang one would think that they cared about their own. I thought that was the first rule of evil empires – take care of your own. And the second rule was – no one matters but us.

I wish I could be a fly on the wall at the Georgia Republican caucus meeting tomorrow. I wonder if they will all stand up and say they are adulterers…”Hi my name is Glen Richardson and I am an adulterer”, “Hi my name is Casey…” and so forth and so on. Or will it break out into a dodge ball match where all the adulterers stand on one side and the 1 faithful person stands on the other side. Either way it’s gonna be a very sad pissing match with the Georgia Republicans trying to figure out how to get out of this public relations nightmare.

Keep the Christmas presents coming Georgia Republicans. Ya’ll totally rock. Georgia Republicans’ meltdown = Best Christmas evah.

    I don’t think voters “know” about a Cagle scandal. There have been rumors, but I don’t see him as being very vulnerable… yet. However, there could easily be some vulnerable House seats because of all this and I hope some Dems who have been thinking about running take this opportunity.

    Also, I do not think this is the time for Dems to be jumping in front of a camera and claiming self-righteousness. No need to distract from the center ring of this circus. If/when we get some candidates to stand up and challenge some of these people, they will have some real ammo to use if they choose to, and probably a lot of voter discontent to capitalize on.

    State Senator Tim Golden of Valdosta, former State Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen of Albany give the democrats the best chance of getting rid of the phony Casey Cagle. If democrats want an outsider to run against the ethically charged, corrupt republicans, then Carl Camon is your man. He is a moderately conservative democrat from South Georgia who’s running for governor is about as far way from Atlanta as you can be. Young, energetic, charismatic democrat Camon would be a breath of fresh air for the party thats desperately needs to new blood inside the party. It won’t matter who republicans pick as their new speaker, the stain will remain on the entire party. Everyone knew of the indiscretions of Richardson, Burkhalter & others like Cagle, etc. They won’t get anything done in this session, they are going to go back to those tired, worn out wedge issues to get their voters out to the polls in 2010. I predict 2010 while a potential bad year for democrats across the country, will be a great year fort democrats here in Georgia. How many chances can the democrats let pass by before they begin to capitalize on it. I say next year dems will “finally” get the ball rollin’ & begin their quest back to the majority.

    You’re absolutely right that the republicans are continuing to give democrats gift after gift. But the problem is that the democratic party is not in any better shape than the republican party. Last I heard the chairwoman was out of town & haven’t weighed in on the matter. If democrats run on ethics, corruption & families against the GOP, they stand a terrific chance of taking every office in 2010, but you know dems always drop the ball when it comes to capitalizing on republicans mishaps. Casey Cagle, the Lt. Governor has had his own charade, but with no democrat so far in the race, he can skate by without answering to the voters. Democrats better get either former State Senator Michael Meyer von Bremen (D-Albany), State Senator Tim Golden (D-Valdosta), or go with a wildcard, an unknown, an outsider like former Ray City Mayor & candidate for governor Carl Camon, who is a young up & coming democrat from south georgia who can run against the establishment & the ethical problems of the GOP & Cagle as well. All three would make great challengers to cagle, but the longer he goes without a challenger, the more likely he will win re-election regardless of the rumors that are swirling around him. As for the GOP, it won’t matter who they elect as their new speaker, the stain will remain & with big issues like transportation, water, education on the horizon & with a balooning deficit & low revenues, they are going to pay the price at the polls in Nov 2010. I’m willing to bet that transportation, education, water does not get solved the majority next year. They have gone the past 3 years without doing anything on these issues, so why would anyone expect them to address them now? And if I’m the democrats, I would not help the republicans with these issues at all. It’s an election year & they want something to show to their constituents that they have actually accomplished something during the session. Democrats in the house & senate need to remain united & let them (republicans) suffer & endure the wrath of the Georgia voters.
