    I was looking all over Peach Pundit and couldn’t find any mention of this anywhere.

    Not a comment, not a post, nothing.

    How were specific Broun supporters reacting to this?

    AJC’s Political Insider wrote:

    Just got out of the mock swearing-in that House Speaker Nancy Pelosi held with newly minted U.S. Rep. Paul Broun of Athens on Wednesday, Immediately after the real ceremony on the floor of the U.S. House

    Pelosi told Broun that – 20 years earlier – she, too had come to Congress by winning a special election. “You just jump into things,” she said.

    To Broun’s wife, Niki, Pelosi said: “My husband will look forward to meeting you at the spouse’s meeting.”

    Mrs. Broun responded with a generous bear hug. We don’t know why. But then, we’ve never met Pelosi’s husband.

    Broun, by the way, passed on his first opportunity to vote, seconds after his induction into the club. He said he didn

    Rugby-

    I made comments about this!! Where have you been????? 🙂

    I kept TRYING to get Erick to stop posting about Vic & Cynthia and cover this wonderful event… Thank you Buzz!!!

    Obviously Broun supporters are not blogging like me…. his supporters were out getting people to the polls. And THAT worked!

    Now about the C-SPAN segment of Dr. Broun being sworn in… WOW !!!

    The Speaker seemed really happy to have another physician to take Charlie Norwood’s old seat as Charlie was also a physician. That’s really nice.

    Then John Lewis being in the majority was the first to welcome Dr. Broun to the Assembly. He made mention that Paul Broun Sr. was a GA State Senator for 30 years as a DEMOCRAT…

    applause…. THEN Jack Kingston stepped up and said ” It’s true that Dr. Broun’s father was a democrat senator but he sure raised his son RIGHT! laughter…. applause….

    The Dr. Broun addressed the Assembly and was very moved and mentioned that he was campaigning just a week ago and now he is in Washington one week later… really fast.

    This is very true —- unlike getting elected in Nov. and having 2 months to get yourself ready.

    All of the BROUN supporters are very encouraged and pleased. We know that everyone else will learn to really like our new Congressman! He has won the heart of Athens-
    home to Jane Kidd. That is unheard of! Think about it!

    An AWESOME campaign …. with many steller folks working quietly behind the scenes… if you only knew! 😉

    All the odds were against Dr. Broun — the Senate, the Governor, Saxby, and the State GOP were all against him and he still pulled it off!

    THANK YOU 10 th CD voters – you have made
    Georgia a better place for everyone !

    I’m still looking, Rugby.

    Nothing, ANYWHERE, on Peach Pundit about Broun being sworn in.

    You would think that someone, anyone, would have posted something.

    But no, I’ve gone from thread to thread to thread, and I can’t find any mention of it.

    And to think I relied on this as a source of information.

    Icaurus & Rugy-

    Look at:

    July 25th posts I posted on ALL threads from 6:00-8:00 …. It was very sad. Not ONE PERSON said that were happy for our new Congressman being sworn in – they just kept ridiculing me for posting AGAIN!

    Erick & Buzz kept throwing up newzie stuff …
    like

    ” Boycott Nike…”
    ” Run Cynthia Rum”

    and ignoring the swearing in of a US Congressman from GEORGIA!!!

    PEACH (state) PUNDIT – should have been all over this but instead – GOPEACH covered it while EVERYONE bashed me.

    Shame – shame -shame.

    Icarus;

    I know how you feel.

    Wanted to know the details of Congressman Broun’s swearing in, and I found about it from the AJC the bloody next day!

    To think that Peach Pundit with the freshest of “Political Pickin’s [sic]” had no mention anywhere on the entire site.

    Just wish someone, somewhere on here would have mentioned the swearing in.
