It’s funny because it’s true

I’m sure there are a few good people in politics. Karen Handel, Stephen Allison, Buzz come to mind. Most are like this guy, but less honest.

Sock Puppets have at it.

    Im gonna have to assume to were playing off the joking mood of the video when you named Karen Handel…sarcasm right?

  2. Junius says:

    I can’t support that guy. Where is his contract with me? Get a folder, young man, and you will go far.

      • Lady Thinker says:

        You can’t defend Deal by calling Karen a liar. It doesn’t compute and the voters won’t buy it.

        • MDokes says:

          I am with Chapman, the most honest of the bunch. And yes, we all believe that Handel is the biggest liar since Obama. I was talking with a buddy who was with Austin and is now with us, he told me Austin told him that Karen does not know how to tell the truth.

          • Lady Thinker says:

            I don’t believe that but I am sure you think it is the truth to believe third party comments.

          • polisavvy says:

            I find it very hard to believe that Austin would say something like that. I’d only believe it if I heard him say it myself.

  3. Icarus says:

    I used to think Buzz was one of the good guys. Then he started insisting on posting poll results claiming there was a leader when undecided as about 2/3 of the result. Sigh.

    Whitest Kids You Know. This “comedy troup” produces some of the funniest sketch comedy today.

  5. James Fannin says:

    I’m not sure where I’ve seen this guy before but I think he’s a spokesman for Nathan Deal isn’t he?

  6. Pine Knot says:

    I’m sure he is talking about another Karen Handel. I do not know who would put liar liar pants on fire Karen Handel in the same list as the other, good people in politics.

  7. Lady Thinker says:

    Karen is a serious contender and that is why people try their darndest to find fire where there is no smoke. She is also one of the good people.

    • ReaganRepublican says:

      What good has she done? Please tell me how she has helped society? Which charities? And the log cabin republican cause does not count.

      • Tireless says:

        Apparently some of her supporters don’t know she has a potty mouth and a temper that would shame a longshoreman. On a positive note, she is a role model for pathological liars and GED recipients.

        • Lady Thinker says:

          I have not seen her have the temper tantrum you claim sehe has but I have seen Deal have one, and I have not heard her “potty mouth” which you claim she has but even if she does have a temper and/or a potty mouth, so what? Men can cuss but women can’t? What a double standard!

          You calling Karen a pathological liar does not make her one and I doubt you have the qualifications to make a medical diagnosis. As for the GED crack, that is another rumor your camp is trying to spread. She has a diploma and some college. Jeff Chapman doesn’t have a college degree but I don’t see you tearing him apart.

          You attack Karen in the hopes the voters will fall for these non-issues so that Deal can sneak in for the Republican party. The voters are too smart to fall for that. I have heard several people say they will vote for OX over Deal if it comes to that.

            • Lady Thinker says:

              Why are you making an issue of charities or church? If it is that important to you, why don’t you call her campaign manager and ask? Why do you keep coming up with these non-issues?

        • AlanR says:

          You GED people are right up there with the birthers. Don’t you think if she didn’t graduate from high school Oxendine would have dumped it all over by now?

          • Henry Waxman says:

            Team Handel could end this debate by releasing a picture of her HS diploma, and I cannot figure out why they haven’t done so. Of course, General EQUIVALENCY Diplomas are supposed to be equivalent to HS diplomas, so I don’t see what the big deal is on the HS diploma/GED debate.

            However, the fact that Karen Handel lacks the mental resources and/or dedication to complete even a two-year associate’s degree at a community college is FAR more concerning to me.

            • Or perhaps she invests her time into things that will actually further her career and herself. I’m not a Handel supporter but seriously… are you saying that anyone who refuses to complete college lacks the mental resources? Perhaps some people find their time better spent in the real world than writing English papers and doing chemistry labs that will have no bearing whatsoever on their goals in life. By your standards, I suppose a career student would be the best suited person to run our state, right? Why don’t we just go find someone with no real world experience that’s spent 15 to 20 years in college? I’m sure they’ll do great…

              • Hill Rat says:

                David, I think you need to drink a cup of coffee and read Henry’s post again because you clearly missed the “and/or dedication” part and then you added several assumed points that weren’t even implied in the post (e.g., the implication that a “career student would be the best suited person to run our state”).

                • Hill Rat says:

                  If anyone thinks that a community college dropout should be the chief executive of our state, and thus, be in charge of our education system, then feel free to vote for Handel.

                  Those of us who want Georgia’s children to be able to compete in the global marketplace by successfully furthering their education after high school – through college or technical training – will cast our votes elsewhere.

                  • As I said above, I’m not a Handel supporter. I just don’t like the “no college degree” argument.

                    I’m voting for John Monds, the Libertarian. Yes, he has a college degree in finance, if that makes you feel any better.

                • You’re right, I totally missed the and/or part. I haven’t had my caffeine fix yet this morning. But someone not completing college still doesn’t necesarily mean they either lack the mental resources or the dedication. They could simply find college a useless waste of money and mental resources. 🙂

                  I added the points about a career student because too frequently on PP I see that people argue that Karen isn’t qualified because she lacks a college education. If you want to argue that she’s unqualified for the office of Governor then give me valid reasons. Tell me how she’s unethical, how she won’t do this or that or what her past record shows. But don’t tell me she can’t do the job because she didn’t find college necessary. I think that a century ago a college education was much more important than it is today for certain endeavors. Sure, I still want my doctor and lawyer to be college educated. But common sense isn’t something that is taught in college. And from the looks of our slate of candidates to choose from neither is ethics.

            • Lady Thinker says:

              Henry,

              Chapman didn’t even go to college and you have yet to say anything about him.

              You know Karen has a diploma and not a GED so if she were to produce a diploma, which I hope she doesn’t, you would find a reason to critize that too.

      • Lady Thinker says:

        She worked hard to expose the money scandal in Fulton County and found where Sheriff Jackie Barrett “borrowed” two million dollars to give to some con man in Florida who promised a quick return and a bonus for her efforts; as the Fulton County CEO, she balanced the budget that had been looted without raising taxes; she voted against domestic partnerships in Fulton County, which is why some of the Log Cabin Republicans are using this opportunity to lie about the check she wrote to them for a dinner for her and her guests.

        As Georgia’s Secretary of State, she introduced the Voter Identity issue, then went to the different courts to defend as well as streamlining the budget and reducing the staff by 20%.

        As for charities, I don’t know, but what charities does Deal give to besides his own pockets?

        • AlanR says:

          When you hear people say they will vote for Oxendine over Deal, do not panic. Quietly and quickly move to the nearest exit. Its for your own good.

          • Lady Thinker says:

            AR,

            I think it is scary anyone would even contemplate such an action but people just don’t trust Oxendine and Deal and to put them both in the same boat! OX is the worst one by far.

        • SFrazier says:

          Handel was the CORRUPTION in Fulton:

          On September 27, 2005, Handel received a contribution from Hamid Alaee. Four months later, Mr. Alaee’s company, Unique Design and Construction, received approval for a zoning modification from Handel and the Commission. Many other beneficiaries of Handel’s actions on the Fulton County Commission gave campaign contributions of up to $10,000, including Roberts Properties, Archer Western Contractors, Brown and Caldwell, Gresham Smith and Partners, John Controls, and others. In 2006, Handel received $10,000 from Fourth Quarter Properties, the real estate company involved in a notoriously shady land deal with Karen Handel’s old boss, Sonny Perdue.

          • Lady Thinker says:

            SF,

            I see you are still spreading those lies in hopes of helping Deal. Are you getting this information from the Democrats or from Deal when he was a Democrat?

            Deal is hoping his lies about Karen will deflect his poor ethical image but it won’t work. Deal is dirty and Karen is clean.

  8. This is about like every pandering politician I know. Whatever happened to running for office for “public service”? What I find, and it doesn’t matter what office (Washington, ATL or local) many of these folks simply line their wallets. Vote the BUMS out!

    • hannah says:

      To rule or be ruled. That is the question which propels Republicans into running for public office. If you want service, choose the Democrats on the ballot, but make sure that’s not just a designation of convenience. Remember Republicans had us invade Iraq to promote democracy, a new-fangled way to decide who fleeces the sheep and who fixes the barbecue.
      The difference between a protector and a predator? The latter will eat you sooner, rather than later.

  9. justpeachy says:

    Yes Karen Handel… and if you believe the “liar liar pants on fire” you probably also believe Ox is an honest man. That story is from the EX president of the LC (stating she was a member) against the current president who says she wasn’t. She DID write a check to give a speech! Like many candidates have to do. The check was for $80 membership in 2003 for the LC was $25…. hmmmm… something isn’t adding up! oh wait, that’s because her check wasn’t for membership. She never lied! She spoke to the LC’s like Isakson and many other Republican candidates have.

    • ReaganRepublican says:

      She is a liar. What about her embelishing her resume? Whithout a CPA or college degree but she was an exeutive at KPMG? It is hard to believe anything she says.

      • MDokes says:

        She did sit down to take the CPA, she just could never pass it. She was not smart enough, I wonder if this why she had a short career at KPMG?

        • Tireless says:

          She’s had a short career in every job she had. She was NEVER in a position that could be classified as an executive at KPMG since she wasn’t a partner. She couldn’t be a member of the professional staff without a college degree. I was a partner at KPMG, I know what I am speaking of.

          • Lady Thinker says:

            Tireless,

            Sure you were a partner. If you look at her financials, you will see she is supported by KPMG. That is in black and white, you just mentioned that you were a partner, so if that was true, you would have mentioned it before. IF you were a partner, why did they kick you out?

            • AlanR says:

              Perhaps he was one of the unindicted coconspirators in one of KPMG’s many scandals the last few years. There are a lot of former KPMG partners around.

              • ReaganRepublican says:

                I copied her website a few months ago, just in case she changed it.

                “After the White House, Karen served as an executive with KPMG and later with CIBA Vision. ”

                Handel claims she was an executive, SHE LIED…

                • Lady Thinker says:

                  Such a non-issue! And for the record, she didn’t lie, you just hate her to much to believe anything good about her.

                  She isn’t perfect but she is the best candidate for governor.

            • Tireless says:

              I struck a nerve I see. If you believe every former partner at KPMG was fired, you are an ignorant person.

              Back to your other equally pathetic statement. You claim KPMG supports Handel. Wow, how did she get the few thousand partners to authorize a payment to her campaign. Many of those partners don’t even live in the US. Isn’t that illegal?

              How about proving she was an executive and I am wrong, instead of tossing out the pedestrian personal attacks. The next time you see her, ask her to describe her extensive executive experience at KPMG. How big was her one-person department? What were her responsibilities? Did she work out of a cube or a windowless inner office?

              • Lady Thinker says:

                You didn’t strike a nerve with me. You claim to know so much about Karen’s time at KPMG that you should know her department size, her responsibilities, and whether she worked in a cube or windowless inner office. Do tell what you claim to know.

        • Lady Thinker says:

          False rumors again. If the KPMG don’t like her, why are executives there supporting her? See her financials and you will see that she has the support of KPMG.

      • Lady Thinker says:

        You have no proof Karen lied, you just keep spreading the rumors Deal gives to you because Deal knows Karen is the better candidate and Deal knows he can’t win against Karen unless he can tarnish her reputation. The voters know your game and won’t fall for it. You can’t even state what your candidate stands for because you don’t even know.

        By the way, Deal was a Democrat when Republican President Ronald Reagan was president. Betcha didn’t know that, did cha?

        • ReaganRepublican says:

          We have given you enough proof over the past two months to convict Handel beyond a shadow of a doubt 1000 times over. The voters will come July 20th, I doubt she will even cary the sixth district.

          • Lady Thinker says:

            What you pass off as truth is anything but. You have attacked her personally but you can’t find anything negative to say about her plan for Georgia. The personal attacks won’t work.

  10. Jackster says:

    That was hilarious! They should have mentioned something about, “I’ve spent years perfecting my handshake from the dead fish maneuver I first employed to the more intimate double hand shakedown. Yes, I do accept checks.”

    Now if we could just get that sort of writing on the Ga Gang, then perhaps it would force that crew to up their game.

  11. MSBassSinger says:

    I loved the fake ad. It make me wonder how many decent, intelligent, sensible, honest people would run except for some bad choices many years ago that would be used against them and their families.

    Some people who made really bad mistakes years ago recognized it, admitted it, paid the price for it, and changed.

    I’d rather have a reformed former felon whose crimes and life since then are known, than the current crook of unknown capacity, or worse, an airhead pretender whose political, social, and economic beliefs shift with the changing winds.

    There really are intelligent, thoughtful, sensitive, strong people of honor, virtue, courage, and real leadership who could run, but won’t. That is not just a shame, but part of the reason our state and nation are spiraling around the drain.

    • hannah says:

      Citizenship is a bundle of obligations (to vote, to hold office, to promote legislation, to serve on juries, to provide material support, etc.); citizenship is not a privilege. However, to get them to do anything, some people need to be prompted with promises of rewards. Social status seems like the least expensive. The very idea of social obligation would turn the anti-social, self-centered specimens of a human being completely off.
      Since the line between really anti-social behavior, also known as crime, which deprives an other of life and/or property, and self-interest is really thin, the prospect of causing deprivation under cover of the law seems attractive to those on the anti-social borderline. What could be more attractive to a wrathful person than the prospect of “beating opponents” and doing it legally?
      If rewards are required to motivate some people to act, what would be better than the prospect of aggression without consequence?
      We make a mistake when we think that “objective” means the same thing as “unselfish” or even “selfless.” To many a self-centered person, “objectivity” is achieved when there’s someone else to blame for the actions one takes in imitation.
      “Monkey see; monkey do” is a persistent pattern of behavior among hominids, including humans. It’s why PR is important. Self-directed individuals aren’t impressed. But, for motivating the self-centered it’s indispensable.

  12. DonfromSnellville says:

    Deal’s car business with the state and Oxendine’s obvious ethics failures both remind me of the politics in GA I have observed for the last 40 years. They are both less than honest and Barnes will beat either one when all the details are repeated over and over. I do not know for whom I will vote, but it will not be for a proven crook.

  13. DonfromSnellville says:

    Car deal with the state? Questionable donations from those he regulates? How could anyone even consider those two? Barnes will hammer away at the lack of ethics and beat either one.

    Love the video but am amazed at defense of these two on this forum. The college situation pales in comparison.
