Where are they now? Jared Thomas edition.

Former Reed campaign manager Jared Thomas will head up a new Georgia Chapter of Americans for Prosperity:

“We are not an attack dog or a lap dog,” Thomas said of the new group. “We’re a watchdog.”

Founded just more than two years ago, Americans for Prosperity has worked to defeat proposed tax increases in Kansas and Oklahoma and limit lobbying by government officials in Texas.

It also has helped call attention to “earmarking,” a legislative process that allows members of Congress to fund projects in their states and districts virtually unchecked.

The group’s national president, Alpharetta resident Tim Phillips, said he sees an opportunity in Georgia for the state chapter to push for lower taxes.

    Sounds like Ralph and his cronies desperately trying anything to continue to be relevant. Election must be real boring for press to give this group of clowns any attention.

    Good point. Not a good situation for Mark Taylor when your 40 days out from election and this is the kind of stuff that is making the news.

    Rumor has it this was Jarrod was the key man behind this PR move.

    In his boldest bid yet to apologize to the Jewish community, actor Mel Gibson today announced that he had converted to Judaism.

    The news took many Jews aback, since conversion to Judaism is a demanding process that can take months or even years of study, and Mr. Gibson accomplished the feat in a record time of forty-five minutes.

    But a spokesman for the “Lethal Weapon

    This group is Ralph Reed for …. retainer group. Virginia Galloway is also working on it. I have nothing against Americans for Prosperity, but Ralph is trying to make this another “Christian Coalition” powerbroker type.

    You people are ridiculous. This poor Jared fellow doesn’t have a right to get another job after the Reed-Cagle primary?!? Please. No matter what position he got, you retards would pull out the big guns and attack as soon as you could figure out how. Let him be. This group sounds like they have some very good, rational goals. So what’s the problem other than a couple people who work there used to word for Reed?

    Please, can someone fill me in? Didn’t Jared Thomas work for Tom Price? And, I am told Price expected no opposition in the primary or the general so he gave him to Ralph Reed to run that campaign. Well, we know that outcome. What are the ties that Ralph Reed has to Tom Price? I am trying to make that connection.
