    Both of these are great events and since they are spread out across parts of the state hopefully many people will be able to attend. Glad to see the future of the GOP is taking the effort to train its leaders.

    According to IMDB, Malitia is an actress that has starred in over 70 family classics as “Butt Plumbers 4”, “Whack Attack 15” and “Whack Attack 5” Are you one of her Cobb Volunteers GOPeach?

    I dn’t know where Chris came up with the Cobb 49th, but the rest of the reference is from the AJC Political Insider: http://www.ajc.com/metro/content/shared-blogs/ajc/politicalinsider/entries/2008/02/13/sign_up_for_war_see_rock_city.html

    The Top Gun training is designed for candidates and they will be the focus of the training so please get the word out. If you are not a candidate, but are senior party leadership, county party chair, county party vice-chair, district chair, etc, or you plan on working for a candidate, you will get a lot of it.
