Air War

Ralph and Casey have taken to the airwaves to attack each other. Casey is attacking Reed for . . . do I even need to tell you?

Reed is attacking Cagle on the property vote that he missed because he was meeting with the Governor.

    Property rights? And they’re attacking Casey on a procedural vote when he supported the underlying legislation?? Uhhh, Chapman put out a letter indicating Casey was with him side-by-side on eminent domain.

    This is the shock-and-awe air campaign all the Ralph people have been promising??

    Please tell me President Bush does the voice-over work . . .

    Actually it’s just a 30 second spot of Ralph and his buddy Jack Abramoff smoking cigars together.

    Did I mention those cigars are wrapped with 100 dollar bills and that Ralph lights them with wooden nickels given to him by his friends in the Coushatta tribe of Louisiana?

    There is much Cagle can be attacked on. I think the theme song of the Cagle Campaign should be the song from “The Beverly Hillbillies”. He got rich that fast from his service in the State Senate.

  4. The Busdriver says:

    Um, Ralph made $5.5 million through 1 guy, Abramoff. I’d say Ralph got rich fast. And I’m not even including the $3 million he made from auctioning his soul on eBay.

    Beautiful. Just got this email. You’d think Ralph and his crack campaign staff would’ve checked the roll call before putting together this doozy of an ad:

    Reed Attacks GOP Senators and Governor Candidate Goes Negative in First Ad

    Reed’s first ad begins by attacking Cagle for voting in favor of SB 273, which he says “authorized government to condemn private property.” (Source: Ralph Reed attack ad, June 27, 2006). However, the Reed attack completely ignores three key facts:

    First, the entire GOP Senate caucus voted in favor of SB 273 because it will create a public-private partnership structure for critically needed transportation projects to move forward. With this attack, Reed is criticizing literally every member of the Republican caucus in the State Senate for voting in favor of a bill that passed 47-3 (SB 273, April 7, 2003).

    Secondly, SB 273 would only allow property to be condemned for true public purposes that have nothing to do with “economic development uses” or the controversial Kelo decision. Specifically, the bill would allow condemnation only for construction of public roads, buildings, schools and utilities. These are longstanding public uses which are widely supported by virtually all Georgians.

    Although SB 273 died due to partisan politics in a Democrat controlled House, an extremely similar piece of legislation creating public-private partnerships was passed by the legislature this session and signed into law by Governor Sonny Perdue. This bill is already allowing critical road improvement projects to move forward in some of the most congested areas of metro Atlanta. (SB 270, 2005).

    “As a lobbyist, Ralph Reed attacked 10 Republican members of Congress on behalf of a gambling company. Today, he is smearing the entire Republican Senate Caucus for casting a vote to help Georgia build critical new transportation projects and relieve congestion. And even worse, he is attacking the same policy Governor Sonny Perdue signed into law,” said Cagle spokesman Brad Alexander.

    “It is laughable for Ralph Reed to expect anyone to believe he can simultaneously attack our party and build it. Ralph says he wants to build our Republican majority and Governor Perdue, and then attacks a policy we all support. This ad is proof positive of two things. First, Ralph is becoming increasingly desperate as he sees his campaign falling apart before his eyes. Secondly, Ralph will do anything to win, including telling lies about members of his own party,” Alexander continued.

    Come and listen to a story about a man named Ralph
    A poor political wannabe, always living hand-to-mouth
    Then one day he was selling his values off ,
    And down from DC came his buddy Abramoff.

    Jack that is, alligator shoes, Texas connections

    Well the next thing you know ol’ Ralph’s a millionaire,
    Kinfolk said Ralph move away from there
    Said DC is the place you ought to be
    So they rented up a truck and moved to Chevy.

    Chase, that is.
    Money Laundering, Payoffs.

    The DC Liabillies!

    = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

    Sung at the end of the campaign:

    Well now its time to say good-bye to Ralph and all his friends.
    And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
    You’re all invited back again to this locality
    So they can try and profit off your naivete

    Y’all come back now, y’hear?

  7. HSC Republican says:

    Debbie,
    Do you really want to start talking about how Reed made his money? Can we all say together UNELICAL! People all over the state have had their business grow, just like Cagle. As his bank grew, so did the Georgia economy. I do not think the Reed Campaign really wants to go down that road. And as to his new commercials I will let the 23 State Senators who have served with Casey tell you how wrong Reed is on this issue.

    Bill, that article contains something for just about everyone:

    1) The monkeys are promiscuous. Somebody better get to work on that problem right away. Either we should teach them abstinence or give them condoms – and where are their parents anyway? I bet the parents just drop these monkeys off at the mall and then act shocked when they find out what their precious little monkeys have been up to.

    2) Some monkeys are lesbians. Big problems brewing there.

    3) The monkeys are challenging Darwin. Now that just can’t be tolerated. These monkeys must be stopped, or else Cobb will have to put those stickers back on the books.

    Perhaps it would be best to wipe the monkeys from the face of the earth, or else, destroy any record of their existence.

  9. SOUTHERNCOMFORT says:

    Ralphie and his band of kool aide sipping patsys are bringing knives to a gun fight. Weak as water guys,thank goodness we will be rid of their rubbish in a couple of weeks…

  10. Demonbeck says:

    Get ready, at some point Ralph will say that Casey Cagle had an affair with a Jewish African-American male, got him pregnant and forced him to get an abortion.

  11. Bill B. says:

    The liberal AJC is still at it. They spotted the liberal in this race and are behind Cagle 110%. They will stop at nothing to try and stop a true conservative like Ralph Reed – even cutting his ad short! I guess the AJC supports Mark Taylor too since their boy Cagle is his biggest supporter!

  12. jacewalden says:

    “The liberal AJC is still at it. They spotted the liberal in this race and are behind Cagle 110%”

    Busdriver,

    I don’t think Bill B. is a dumbass. I just think Bill B. is a pseudonym for someone who just comes on here to say outrageous things to stir people up. No one could be that stupid in real life.

  13. Bill B. says:

    No, I’m a Republican. I don’t give to democrats and I would be embarrased if the liberals loved me like the do Cagle. You can’t get away from the fact that Casey Cagle supports Democrats. He is backed by liberals. The liberal teacher’s union GAE endorsed him! If it walks like a liberal, talks like a liberal, votes like a liberal, and donates like a liberal…it’s a LIBERAL!

    I am glad to know that you and the rest of the staff at Cagle campaign HQ thinks I’m a dumbass. I hope all you liberals think so. You probably hate Hannity too (he endorsed Ralph). You liberals over there can’t stand Zell (he endorsed Ralph). Not to mention how you hate Newt, Rudy, etc. (all endorsed Ralph)

    Face facts…the liberals support Cagle and the true conservatives support Ralph Reed – a real Republican!

    BILLB,DEBBIE, GOPDOC ET AL, YOU ARE ALL PATSIES AND PROBABLY RODE THE BENCH IN ANY SPORT YOU WERE EVER IN (IF ANY)YOU ARE ENGAGED IN FULL CONTACT NOW SO YOU BETTER RUN FOR THE BLEACHERS….YOU GUYS CRACK ME UP!!!!!

  16. The Busdriver says:

    BTW, according the Ralph’s website calendar, his next public appearance is scheduled for May 18th in Buckhead. So, if you want to ask him about some of the details in the Republican-led Senate report, you can catch him there.

    Wait . . .

  17. Bill B. says:

    Make a note to not list the entire list next time. You have several democrats on here. And, yes, they are liberals.

    And how many lobbyists and special interests? You forgot to list them.

    How about developers and others who want our private property rights taken from us?

    Your guy is a liberal like it or not!

  18. Mrs. Adam Kornstein says:

    Demonback,

    Oh you DIDN’T list Chip Rogers and Nancy Schafer as liberals… Tell me you didn’t… cause my liberal freinds are highly insulted.

  19. buzzbrockway says:

    Mike Smith (Snellville, Pro Tem)

    You might not want to brag about that endorsement as he was indicted in January as part of a telemarketing scheme. He resigned from the Snellville City Council and on July 18 Snellville voters will vote on who should replace him.

  20. Mike Hassinger says:

    The Beverly Hillbillies parody was hysterical.

    “You’re all invited back again to this locality
    So they can try and profit off your naivete”

    That’s the funniest thing I’ve heard this whole season. Good work, DB.

  21. Bill Simon says:

    Buzz,

    FYI, Mike Smith lent his name to someone as an -in-name-only position on a company. His defense is that he did not participate in the fraud and was not involved in the company except to allow his name as an officer.

    So, try not to indict Casey for the fact that someone who supports him is under indictment. A supporter under indictment for wrongdoing is a far cry from the literal reading of the candidate himself someone knowingly participating in a money laundering operation.

    Just because you are the recipient of a laundering operaton, that does not/will not exonerate you from failing to notify authorities of the acts if you had knowledge of the acts.

    And, on more than one e-mail record, Ralph demonstrates he knows full well what was going on and why.

  22. buzzbrockway says:

    Bill,

    I did not attempt to indict Casey because of the indictment of Mike Smith. Smith is responsible for his own actions and will have his day in court.

  23. landman says:

    Demonback,That song is absolutely lung thumping hillarious,and so accurate,you may need to copyright that, it could be useful between now and July 18th.

    Buzz ,I dont think you are in a position to criticize anyone,considering who you have chosen to blindly follow,at the expense I might add of your reputation.I hope it was worth it.

  24. buzzbrockway says:

    So because I’m voting for Ralph Reed I can’t point out someone was indicted? What a ridiculous statement.

    You’re contributing to a severe problem within the GOP, which many blame on the religious right, but really involves many factions within the Party – intolerance of different viewpoints. People can’t simply disagree on a primary race, the opposition must be lemmings or idiots or criminals.

    I’ve seen the evidence and don’t think Ralph is evil, in fact I think he’s the better man for the job. Now if that knocks me off that pedestal you placed me on, so be it.

  25. SOUTHERNCOMFORT says:

    Buzz, you are exactly correct it does knock you off “the pedistal” and into the abyss your cult leader RALPHIE BOY resides in. The point you clowns don’t grasp is intelligent, self thinking individuals do not blindly follow self rightous, bible thumping egomainaics off the cliff.All throughout the history of the world there has been times when a cleansing was necessary,and it is time now to cleanse you hypocrites from the ranks of our party before you are our demise….

  26. Demonbeck says:

    I am glad my parody hit the mark. Thank you for your kind words.

    Mrs. Kornstein,

    Bill B. declared that only liberals support Cagle. I was listing those “liberals” so that all could see who is supporting Cagle.

  27. Bull Moose says:

    Demonbeck that is absolutely hilarious that song you wrote! I love it!

    Ralph has no option but to continue to lie because if he start telling the truth now, how will he cover all those lies he’s told to the media…

    He and Grover Norquist have told so many lies I don’t know how they keep up with there stories… Imagine what the emails between them all look like now!

    All those who want to elect a self serving, greedy, ego driven, duplicitous S.O.B. jump off the cliff over here!

    Demonbeck, I have a friend that looks a little like Reed, we could record our own ad and post it on here for all to enjoy! You could sing your diddy about Ralphie!

  28. landman says:

    “Ive seen the evidence and dont think Ralph is evil,in fact I think he’s the better man for the job.”

    Stop you’re preaching Buzz,the only people that are contibuting to a severe problen within the GOP is people like you who have their heads so far up RR’S *** ,that they are willing to Gamble everything on a guy who would sellout anyone for a dollar.

    Name one other Candidate within our Party that has been targeted with being a criminal?Lets hear them Buzz,who are they?Fortunately for our Party”s sake people with your broken moral compass are in the minority and Reed will not be given the opportunity to wreck our Party.

    I nor do I think anyone else has placed you on a pedestal,but rather think you have done yourself a major disservice in your blind service to REED.

  29. Demonbeck says:

    Bull Moose,

    I’m not sure that me singing anything would do anything for anybody. I would be proud for anyone to use it however they please though.

  30. 4ofspades says:

    Sad to see this turn into personal attacks on other posters. Every one here has their own opinions and reasons for backing their candidates.

  31. SOUTHERNCOMFORT says:

    MY COMMENTS ARE NOT PERSONAL BUT I’M SICK AND TIRED OF DO GOODERS TYRYING TO RUN OUR PARTY, WHEN THEY ARE THE PARASITES THAT ARE BLEEDING US DRY…..

  32. Demonbeck says:

    Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale,
    a tale of a fateful trip.
    That started from this gloomy met(ro),
    aboard this lavish jet.
    The mate was a mighty Washington man,
    the skipper didn’t give a rip.
    Nine passengers took off that day,
    for a four day golfing trip, a four day golfing trip………
    The coverage started getting rough,
    the tiny crew was tossed.
    If not for the courage of the fearless mate,
    the LG post might be lost; Ralph’s future might be lost.

    And then, after our 30 months of fun with the Ralphie Boys was done, we would hear…….

    So this is the tale of ol’ Ralphie’s Boys,
    they’re going away for a long, long time.
    They’ll have to make the best of things,
    associating with other criminal slime.

    The first mate and his skipper too,
    will do their very best,
    to make the others comfortable,
    in their white collar low security nest.
    No kickbacks, no blackberries, no limosines,
    not a single luxury.
    Like Robinson Crusoe,
    it’s primitive as can be.
    So join us here each week my friend,
    you’re sure to get a smile.
    From nine screwed politicos,
    Here on Ralphie’s speed dial!

  33. landman says:

    Buzz,Ill hold judgement on that until we see if you get your mind right after July 18,hell I will even put in a good word for you to Lt.Governor Cagle!!!
