Once again, Ron Paul supporters are expressing shock that majorities are required to win elections. I am assured via twitter however that they are still winning. Whatever.
Julianne Thompson, Kay Godwin, Pat Tippett, and Dan Becker are shocked to learn that they are either liberal media elites or subversive Democrats. I’ll post the full text of the press release they sent over protesting Speaker David Ralston’s assertions that real Republicans don’t want ethics reform below the fold. Welcome to the RINO! club, kids.
Randy Evans is the Georgia GOP’s New Committee Man. Linda Herren was re-elected as National Committee Woman.
The 13th District Convention will have to hold a “do-over” to select delegates and alternates for the National GOP Convention in Tampa.
And we had a few drinks at the Peach Pundit Road Show the other evening. Thanks to most who attended. Others…

Conservative Groups Rebuke House Speaker David Ralston’s Comments at GOP State Convention Speech
Leaders call for Apology
Columbus, GA – Members of the Capitol Coalition of Conservative Leadership condemned comments made by House Speaker David Ralston at the State Republican Convention Friday afternoon.
The Coalition issued this formal response as a group:
“We strongly condemn the comments made by Speaker Ralston regarding ethics reform. Strong ethics and accountability are not a matter of right versus left. They are a matter of right versus wrong. His comments imply that voters and activists should hide our eyes from the realities of ethics violations and the need for reform, and stand by everyone no matter what they do, simply because they have an “R” behind their name. Rather than open his heart to the cries from citizens that we have the right to call for accountability, his comments reflect those of someone who seeks to divide our party by falsely accusing those who stand for our values of being divisive. His comments were arrogant and pompous and show an attitude that is anything but a humble public servant.”
The Capitol Coalition of Conservative Leadership consists of 31 conservative groups from across the spectrum, and includes Tea Parties, Georgia Right to Life, Georgia Conservatives in Action, Eagle Forum, and others…
Julianne Thompson – Georgia Tea Party Patriots
Kay Godwin – Georgia Conservatives in Action
