While most of us were content to spend yesterday preparing to ring in the New Year, Governor Sonny Perdue decided his contribution to the party would be to drop a turd in the punch bowl of the GOP grassroots. Below is a comment by Mr. Lawton Sack being elevated to the front page. Mr. Sack is the Bulloch County GOP Chairman, First Vice Chairman of the 12th Congressional District, and State Committeeman for the Georgia Republican Party.
From the Grassroots part of the Georgia Republican Party, I apologize for this mess. “Our” GA GOP is even more out of touch than I ever could have imagined.
This should have been a simple situation: Name an interim S.O.S. who would promise to stay an interim and not seek re-election. Doug Macginnitie and Brian Kemp ought to feel real good about the GA GOP at the moment. These gentleman have been campaigning for a long time and it was one race that did not appear to be turning into a circus.
Not to mention that we are going to have another special election to fill another seat under the Gold Dome. I am sure the GA GOP already has somebody in mind to fill that position, like they had Buddy Carter to fill Eric Johnson’s Senate seat and Ann Purcell to fill Buddy’s seat.
Have a field day with this one GA Democrats, Libertarians, and Independents! The GA GOP is planning your campaign messages for you.
Excuse me while I go read another GA GOP email from Sue and the gang about how much the Grassroots mean to the GA GOP.
