    Betcha the Ralph Team (Jordon, Jarrod, Lisa Baron, Tim Phillips) are frantically searching the Web to find out some side business of the Coshuttas that even the Coshuttas forgot about.

    Bet they come up with the excuse, “We knew it came from the tribe, but, because all Native Americans look alike, we figured the Coshuttas operated the same way the Mississippi Choctaws worked, and they were able to generate millions of dollars selling moccasins and leather shoelaces. Our mistake. Jack Abramoff duped us.”

    I bet Buzz Brockway keeps on supporting Ralph, though. Why? For the same reason that you don’t see ants leave the line they’re marching too often: they wouldn’t know what to do if they had to forage for Kool-Aid for themselves. 😉

    Here is a new question to this debate: What will it take for Ralph Reed to withdraw from this race?

    Think about that for a minute . . . what happens if he withdraws. Well, sure, we as GOPers are all better off for it. But, thinking about it from his perspective, what happens to his business if he bows out? If he does bow out, everyone will know it was b/c of the casino scandal, whether he says that is the actual reason or not. Furthermore, while he might still be under the false impression that he can do good for the state; his supporters cannot really believe that he is still the right person for this position. Even if he isn’t guilty, there is just TOO MUCH BAGGAGE, and it aint’ going anywhere anytime soon – it’s only going to increase! Furthermore, what happens to his credibility and the credibility of those he has worked with (i.e. national GOP folks, the President, etc)? He is like the plague now – no one wants to be around him.

    So, Ralph and Ralph supporters – what is it going to take to realize this isn’t going to work? Sure, Newt had some mistakes . . . he resigned and was better off in the end for it. Tom DeLay has some problems . . . he gave up his leadership position. Trent Lott said some bad stuff . . . he gave up his leadership role. Even Nixon resigned from the Presidency.

    What in the world is it going to take to make Reed supporters realize he IS NOT RIGHT FOR THIS PARTY, THIS STATE OR THE COUNTRY!?! He doesn’t have elected experience. He has never shown any ability to lead a state. His past is sketchy. And, now . . . this issue is only going to get worse. C’mon!

    Anyways, back to my original question . . . what will it take for Ralph to bow out of this race? Perhaps the fact that people just aren’t going to vote for him will have to be enough.

    You must understand, Reed supporters are unlikely to publicly withdraw their support for their hero. This is dangerous for Reed because he will not know who is for him and who intends to secretly vote for another. Reed claims to have thousands signed up as volunteers. How many will actually go work for him – that is the thing to watch.

    Ralph will NEVER withdraw…only people who have integrity would have the courage to withdraw. You cannot have integrity if you are as crooked as Ralph Reed.

  5. Bull Moose says:

    It’s sad that the leadership of our Georgia Republican Party doesn’t come out and condemn his actions.

    I cannot stand hypocrites and will remember this at the ballot box in the future.

  6. GAWire says:

    Today’s Wall Street Journal has a full above-fold article on the Indian Casino scandal mentioning all the key players except it doesn’t mention RR. Reed is a little too small for the WSJ, but it won’t take much more of this for him to be a complete joke throughout the nation, and then what are we as a Party left with?

    i watched with peculiar interest for 3 hours this evening on CSpan 2. This is disgusting. The lengths these political pimps went to scam money from all sides is nothing less than disgraceful.

  8. Bull Moose says:

    I don’t care what kind of excuse Ralph offers — he lied to the people of Georgia about his involvement. It’s that simple.

    His story on this has changed from day to day. How can he expect anyone to trust him anymore?

    Come on people — this is borderline insane.
