Voter Outrage of the Weak – Runoff Stizzyle Byutch

This is from InsiderAdvantage, so, of course, we should expect the exact opposite to happen…

Some Thoughts on the Upcoming Runoffs 

By Charles Bullock III

(7/28/06) If Karen Handel, Gail Buckner, Jim Martin, Cynthia McKinney or Gary Black had their ways, Georgia election law would conform to that of most states and nothing more than a plurality would be required to secure nomination. In contrast with primary leaders who wish that a plurality had sufficed, the second place finishers eagerly anticipate the opportunity to overcome the problems encountered in the primary.

    Georgia should go to Instant Runoff Voting.

    I met Karen Handel last night and talked to her for several minutes. I was very impressed with her.

    So how will the limping admiral spin this study? Will he’ll counter with this quote from the good conservative Bill Shipp:

    “I think he’s going to be tough to beat, if not imposssible”

    Or how about “We’re in the 4th inning of a 9 inning game”

    Or maybe use Raspails spin:

    Erick- Typically you’re pretty lucid so you must have had too much to drink or something last night watching the returns come in. If there would have been three women and one man in this primary, the results would have been 180 degrees different. Ultimately, voters didnt know who the hell they were voting for in this down-ballot race (as evidenced by the fact that Bailey and Martin pulled a combined 23 percent because, let’s face it, they were barely even candidates).

    The uninformed voters (folks who weren’t touched by either major campaign) walked into those polling places and followed one of two trains of thought: 1) Hey, here are three dudes running against a chick and naturally Secretaries are women so I’ll vote for the chick, or, 2) I’m gonna vote for one of these three dudes, eenie meenie minee moe… Obviously, Handle would have the advantage in either of those situations. Those uninformed voters won’t show up in the run-off…

    Each of you should go purchase a subscription to InsiderAdvantage and their wonderful sister publication SouthernPoliticalReport to read the article in its entirety. There are many insightful articles and up-to-the-minute updates added throughout the day. The cost is relatively cheap for an annual subscription and includes a subscription to James magazine – Georgia’s Only Monthly News Magazine – featuring the best columnists in the South. It’s for “Georgians Who Get It!”

    And then there is Bill Stephens and his idiotic voter outrage. Who’s for the outrage of the week? Stephens the panderer! BTW can Stephens count, there has been more weeks in this campaign than he accounts for in his stupid voter outrage of the week! Can he even count? Or is he simply a desparate anti-Handel? Or maybe pro-self? DUH, I’m Stephens, you vote for me, or else….

    I just wonder how many of Stephens big donors are going to be willing to shell out even more money after his abysmal campaign and weak 2nd place finish?

    Today I received the absolute lamest piece of mail of I’ve ever received. It’s from Bill Stephens who is screaming about Karen Handel. What a tool.
