    Check out the peach fuzz pic on his bio page.

    I don’t think I would have highlighted that.

    _________. Not often that a politician leaves me speechless. I’m sure one day soon I’ll be able to fill in the blank with my impressions, but today is not that day.

    Given Vernon’s known late night exploits, I’m not sure I’m comfortable with your decision to start the thread with “It’s up.”

    What is whitemalevoters’ stance on this? Vernon starts the intro with him and his dog on a farm (very “white male-ish”) and then continues to have a slide show with elderly white females (something that I would think appeals to white males).

    I don’t know what to think about this, how are my people responding?

  5. RuralDem says:

    Well, I still hope Jim Marshall, Jim Butler, or someone else who is a true conservative with a shot jumps in. After the way Chambliss’ campaign smeared Cleland, there’s no telling what he’d resort to dishing out on Jones.

    What Saxby did in 2002 showed a true lack of class. It’s amazing how low people will stoop to win.

    Bull Moose-

    I’m a little worried the “constitutional crisis” between Palmer and his VP will be too similar to the “constitutional crisis” between the other Palmer and his VP in season 2. Nevertheless, Daniels is completely ruthless.

    Of course, the coldest step they could’ve taken was killing the autistic brother, but thank God they’re not that ruthless.

  7. John Galt says:

    The Dems have to run somebody. I suppose their thinking is its better to offer up Vernon Jones as the sacrifical lamb than a sitting Congressman like Marshall. See “2004: Denise Majette.”

    That said, Apollo did beat Rocky.

  8. Jmac says:

    And then Rocky did take Apollo in the rematch, thus earning the latter’s respect and eventually his assistance in a later title defense.

    How this plays into the Georgia political landscape … who knows.

    I don’t think this is the DCCC pick. No way. Not with folks like Shirley Franklin or Thurbert Baker out there who, though admittedly still underdogs, pose considerably stronger challenges to Chambliss.

  9. John Galt says:

    So Shirley Franklin is more like the Clubber Lang or Ivan Drago in this fight, who fight a more seasoned Rocky with a win under his belt.

    My question is, when do Saxby and Vernon run on the beach together to train for Shirley?

  10. Icarus says:

    I think Shirley is much more like the Brigitte Neilson character. Unfortunately, it’s probably post Flavor Flav Brigitte.

    Everyone get a grip we all know in truth that Vernon will win. Come on You know he will. All the other candidates are doing nothing, they are nothing
