    I swear, Ralph Reed won’t be happy until he has us all marching towards re-education camps–after making him rich first, of course.

    • Calypso says:

      I thought he was marching us all toward Indian (feathers, not dots) reservations and casinos.

  2. Ed says:

    “Did Chris Christie miss his chance to run for president?”

    These kinds of stories are the worst and most boring form of political journalism. Ugh.

  3. Ed says:

    Speaking of political journalism, Blake Aued is leaving ABH for an editor position (IIRC) at Flagpole.

  4. SallyForth says:

    John Suggs’ article is entertaining and sadly very much on target. Democrats need to get their crap together – not having a viable opposition party to help keep the party in power on their toes is really hurting all Georgians.

    • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

      “Democrats need to get their crap together… ”

      Translation: Democrats need to get their **** together – not having a viable opposition party to help keep the ruling party in power on their toes is really hurting all Georgians, VERY BADLY.

      Though as this state seemingly descends into a total meltdown, one should keep-in-mind that today’s “God-awful incompetent” and wholly-unethical ruling Georgia Republicans were yesterday’s just competent enough but still wholly-unethical ruling Georgia Democrats.

      Same management, different banner.
