    Man! I don’t think “kids” are pulling-up music from the 1940s-1950s era of music. The Culture Club tune, yes, but not the frog-voiced song at first.

    Here comes Cathy Cottontail,
    Hopping down the campaign trail,
    Flippity Floppity the primary’s on its way!

    Cathy Cox is ridiculously inept. I can’t believe anyone actually believes this acolyte of Eris was ever a viable candidate for office. If someone is unable, or too weak, to make a decision and stick to it, why should I ever even consider voting for them? Who am I voting for, a woman who supports gay marriage rights, or a woman who opposes gay marriage rights?

    It could have been more dramatic if the train would have come with Cathy on the tracks.

    I wonder how big the impact of these type of “viral videos” is? Political nuts like us watch ’em but are they getting out into the population at large? With the ease of distribution You Tube provides I think they might be.

    Eris, or Discordia, was the Greek Goddess of Strife, one of whose qualities includes that of Confusion. Cox is not only confused but also causing confusion with her constant position change regarding gay marriage rights. Acolyte is a devout follower of something, in this case that of Eris. Cox is a particularly devout follower, or acolyte, since the level of confusion she has mired herself in is particularly high.

    What would be even more dramatic then a train hitting Cathy on the tracks is to have a picture of Mark Taylor on wheels mow her over on the tracks.

    OK, she’s just the latest candidate to wind up a victim of adolescent humor, but that doesn’t mean she’s washed up in the primary. Gee, it’s still 47 days away, and she’s got enough money for TV spots to recover.

    And she is continuing to plug away with substantive policy proposals, like over the weekend when she offered her alternative-energy plan. She can attract both farmers, environmentalists and frustrated urban drivers by talking about making Georgia an energy-producing state with what she calls “farm grown” energy.

    That alone is not a slam dunk, but it demonstrates a level of seriousness about issues that is not being matched to the same degree by Mark Taylor. Instead, he’s spending much of his staff time playing gotcha with trivial press releases that amuse reporters and political junkies but don’t impress ordinary voters.

    Betty,
    CC is washed up in the primary because of her decisions in the past few days: Polls, gay marriage, voter id, support of the flag, etc. She had rural voters with her flag bill and she had gay, urban voters with the “unneccessary” comment but when push comes to shove, she is ready to take a brave position until someone challenges her and then she lays down and plays dead. That is what is destroying the cox campaign, her lack of backbone and her inability to stand for issues that matter to her base supporters. I would wait until Cathy’s check clears before I did any more shilling for the Cox campaign. Her campaign has been in a downward spiral since Morton’s screw-up, and it doesn’t seem likely at this point that she’ll be able to recover no matter how many TV ads she purchases. I know I haven’t exactly been Cathy’s biggest fan or anything, but let’s be honest – she’s had a bad month or two and it’ll take nothing short of a miracle to recover.
    Sometimes I wonder whether the candidates just misunderstood the way this race would work. Here’s an analogy I heard the other day that I think makes pretty good sense: liken the two candidates to a couple of dogs, and you’ve got a puppy and a pit bull. Cathy was obviously the puppy – cute at first glance, but name one thing she ever did for this state or one stance she took that was considered brave that she hasn’t at some point reversed. She is looking for the vote, she seems to stand for what she thinks will make her win, which is exactly what is making her lose. she hasn’t had to take a stance of anything since she first breezed into her current office and hasn’t had many opportunities so she attracted outsiders with her rejection of “politics as usual” and what on first glance seems a genuine willingness to start fresh and do what works. Mark was the pit bull – he on the other hand, has obviously been around the block and he’s got the scars to prove it. He’s ready to fight and it’s backed up on his record and he’s not going to backtrack on what he belives just because he thinks it might hurt him in the general, and this is why he is going to win the primary.
