For Sunday morning grins and giggles, I was thinking about live blogging today’s Georgia Gang, but they taped it a couple of years ago, and Dick keeps calling Obama “Osama.” So I don’t think they deserve a moment more of our attention. Back to Facebook and the NYT for me.
But wait a sec… not so fast. Now they’re onto Dale Cardwell, one of my fave local topics. “He hasn’t got a prayer of winning the Democratic nomination. The majority of those voters are Black, and they’re going to vote for Vernon Jones.”
They don’t even call Vernon by his real name (Snuggles), so I’m moving on now. In the meantime, Bill Shipp’s got some hilarious advice for the dirt poor Cardwell campaign:
However, much of the Georgia Republican hierarchy can’t abide (Republican Presidential hopeful Mike) Huckabee. He’s too blue collar and too redneck. He wouldn’t fit in at a Piedmont Driving Club reception. He doesn’t look like big money or even new money. Associating with newly rich hicks is OK, Cardwell, but avoid at all costs hanging around with genuine populists. People will begin to think you really were dirt poor and perhaps even a donkey after all..
Full Shipp shafting here.
