Given that State Rep Mark Hatfield has a lot of time on his hands now that his peers at the Capitol don’t care much to have him around, he’s filed an appeal with the Fulton County Superior Court asking for an expedited review of Secretary of State Brian Kemp’s decision to generously allow Barack Obama (D-Natural Born Citizen) his rightful place on a Georgia Democratic primary ballot.
Should the expedited review not be granted, Hatfield on behalf of client Kevin Powell and deniers of reality everywhere, asks that a stay of Kemp’s decision be granted and the Democratic Preference Primary, currently scheduled for March 6th, be postponed.
As I’ve indicated before, this continues to be a problem for Georgia Republicans who should make it clear – early, often, plainly, and loudly – that Hatfield is acting on his own and does not represent either the views of the Party or their personal position. Republicans have already committed message failure for most of this month arguing over the issue of contraception. We don’t need the message for the month of March to be that during the 50’s, the State of Hawaii conspired with a village in Kenya to pave the way for a Kenyan (pronounced MUS-lum) to take over the Presidency.
