Qualifying is done so now we get to crazy times–CAMPAIGN SEASON!

In my inbox this morning came a press release from Gen. David Poythress. It contained a quote resting on an objectively false premise and way too many name drops of one of his opponents, informing the world that Gen. Poythress is airing his first ad. As campaign manager Wendy Davis said: “We’re up on TV when most people thought we’d receed into the shadows.” Couldn’t have said it better myself.

Governor Roy Barnes just sent out an email a few minutes ago saying “today is the day – Roy 2010 is launching our first commercial of the campaign”. The ad will be unveiled at 4 PM on the Gov’s Facebook and Twitter page (you can find them on your own).

And so it begins.

    I know, it’s all so obscure & so long ago, it might have been Battle of Thermopylae. But the top 20 Google hits would have gotten it, easily.

    And a neat thumbnail description of the action here includes:

    “How the Tincan Sailors of Taffy 3 Beat The World’s Largest Battleship in the Battle off Samar” That largest battleship ever built? The Yamato alone displaced as much as all units of Taffy 3 combined.

    Guess who came out on top?
