Just what is Dale Cardwell thinking?

Cardwell told the AJC on Monday that he will scale a 320-foot pole at Corey Tower in downtown Atlanta on New Year

    Why would a TV reporter with big name recognition, solid abilty to communicate, a reputation for serious political investigative reporting, waste time on a stunt? I don’t see how this can help him as a Senate candidate. The man should be on the ground campaigning. Will he be up there for the Jefferson-Jackson Dinner? What an opportunity for his primary opponents.

  2. juliobarrios says:

    “He said Corey Tower is owned by Corey Media and they have agreed to let him perch up there.”

    Is this considered an in-kind contribution from Corey Media?

  3. Rick Day says:

    The problem is, he is right. No one wants to talk about the problems of the country, except for kooks like Ron Paul supporters. Every one else is the proverbial ostrich in the sand patch at an ass kicking contest.

    Never mind, return to your televisions. There are no problems, only products.

  4. juliobarrios says:

    I can’t wait to see who the Dems get to run against Isakson, since he’s less vulnerable than Chambliss.

  5. Tea Party says:

    I think that riding a bicycle backwards is a good stunt….Oh, already taken…Good Grief, maybe this is just a New’s Years early April fool’s Day prank.

  6. DMZDave says:

    I dont want to go out on a limb but this sounds like a Pole-ish joke. Maybe Matt Tower y put him up to it.

  7. juliobarrios says:

    During the next Hawks game why doesn’t he run naked onto the floor with nothing but a “Dale08” sticker on his back. That will also get him some free publicity and help to get his message out.

  8. gatormathis says:

    You might be right in your assumptions.

    He better hope his hopefuls can Card well, because without i.d. it will be a problem to vote.

    Plus with the lower temps that are approaching, he might think his message is heard good enough to get down from his icy perch sooner than anticipated.

    320 feet up in the air in windy weather and low 20’s temperature could bring about a severe case of the “blue balls”.

    With such antics from the dumb and dumber candidates, don’t forget to remind them to not “lick” the pole during freezing weather…………….

    ………and those under the pole…………don’t eat the “yellow” snow………..

    “Vernon Jones and a pole sitter”

    There are so many opportunities for tasteless jokes there.

  10. JDP says:

    So now in the GA Dem’s race is “Snuggles” the threesome man, Dale the Pole Sitter, Franklin Randolph the 25-year old dog catcher, and Maggie Martinez who thinks the U.S. is the world’s biggest “emitter of CEOs.”

    Bravo Ga Dems, Bravo

    my fraternity had a pole sit as a fundraiser one time–it was pretty cool–i was pretty drunk–i actually don’t remember it very well-nevermind…

  12. juliobarrios says:

    It says on Maggie’s website she is an educator. For the sake of our children’s future I pray she doesn’t teach English.

  13. Goldwater Conservative says:

    MS_midtown…don’t be so naive. Cardwell can not afford to campaign…he is a dead beat and has a bunch of dead beat friends that know he is going through his mid-life crisis. The party has not actively recruited…if it had there would be a respectable candidate in the race. Even then it would probably not be enough though. This is not a competitive state, there are one or two competititve districts…but the state in a whole is highly GOP. Which is why presidential candidates disproportionately circumvent coming here for GA’s electoral votes. Obama or Clinton could spend every day from now to Nov. in GA and it would not matter. At the same time who ever the GOP nominee is does not need to come to GA…because they will win it no matter what. Same goes for most of the south. Kind of the same way that GOPers do not successfully campaign in Vermont.
