I just watched the gubernatorial debates. Not that the two hours were anything other than completely rivioting, but I’m stuck on the responses of the Democrats to the question about which Republican office-holder they most admired, Both Baker and Poythress pick Sen. Johnny Isakson. Maybe they both missed the bulletin that their colleague, Mike Thurmond, gave up his office as Labor Commissioner to run against Isakson? They called him visionary, bipartisan. (Isakson, not Thurmond, to be clear.) Boy, if they managed to get the Democratic nod, I wonder what songs everyone would sing on the bus. Clearly, they would not be singing from the same sheet of music.
And, before Baker and Poythress go about singing Johnny’s praises, they might want to ask Elena Kagan how she’s feeling about his “visionary leadership.”
And we wonder why we can’t win elections.
