Bill Shipp says Georgia Dems are “perpetually polite losers”…

…In a column published in this morning’s Athens Banner-Herald.

The column entitled “Taking Georgia Democrats to the woodshed via e-mail” frequently quotes an e-mail sent by Dr. Ruth Green to the “powers that be” at the Georgia Democratic Party. Dr. Green poses a litany of questions to the state’s Democrats including, Who constitutes Georgia’s slate of Democratic leaders?; What are they doing except saying ‘DONATE’?; Why is there seemingly nobody with credibility opposing Sen. Saxby Chambliss, R-GA?; and Why is there seemingly no statewide Democratic organization even though Democrats have a good chance to elect the new president?

What was Bill Shipp’s response to all these questions?

A somewhat back-handed compliment about a recent e-mail he received from the Democratic Party of Georgia touting their new website (www.georgiademocrat.org)…

Perhaps Green is too harsh on Democrats in the midst of this ho-ho-ho season. Democrats are really not so bad, are they? Just a couple of weeks ago, I received a glowing note from the party informing me that donkey supporters have given a breathtaking $7,000 to construct a party Web site. The party wanted to know if I could donate a bit more.

Bill Shipp, the Dean of Georgia Politics, then ended his column with a very snarky answer to the Democrats’ latest fundraising pitch…

I decided to wait. I want to see first what Mayor Mike Bloomberg and his gun-hating, immigrant-loving maverick supporters may offer as a possible third party. This two-party system is wearing a bit thin, especially when one party seems to have become the perpetually polite loser and excuse maker.

Who wants to dispute Bill Shipp’s claim?

    It would have been nice if Shipp had actually done some research on this thing since, you know, the DPG raised $14,000 for the site and not $7,000. Or the fact that he apparently missed this from the PI boys or that he doesn’t clarify that it’s SR 303 and not SR 3303.

    I ain’t here to say Democrats in Georgia are surging or anything, but simply repeating false accusations by some random woman is hardly grounds for sound criticism.

    Yeah, where are the Dems on transportation, Peach Care, water conservation and improving SAT scores? People are Still Looking for solutions to the kitchen table issues.

    Rugby, it doesn’t matter who I support, since the majority of Georgians (and too many states) are losers. You kkklowns will keep on electing trash like Sonny Perdoofus, et. al. no matter who I vote for.
