TEA Party – Peach Pundit – PolitiKlout Ethics Poll Day 1 Results

Peach Pundit has again teamed up with the Atlanta TEA Party and PolitiKlout to provide a text based poll.  This month, we’re focusing on the need for a gift cap as part of ethics reform.  The poll will run through Wednesday at 5:00pm. 

Day 1 results are as follows:

Do you support ending Georgia’s practice of unlimited gifts to legislators from lobbyists?

A) Yes  81.25%

B) No   12.5%

C) Undecided   6.25%

To participate, text “ethics” to 28748

    Congrats to the 81% of you who have now joined ranks with the lib’ral media. Your badges will be arriving soon.

    (…and, yes, I know, you don’t need no stinkin’ badges.)

      What’s “liberal” about supporting ethics reform? These loser pols who attempt ridiculous bait-and-switch games with new taxes so as not to make any hard spending choices, who pay for play with lobbyists, and who scrupulously avoid ever going against their co-opted worthless leadership, don’t deserve any $100+ “gifts” or additional compensation. And believe me, as soon as they are finally forced into giving up the “gifts” then they will use it as a justification to legislate higher compensation for all their hard work. 🙂

  2. Julianne Thompson says:

    Wow, View…are you trying to help out liberals? You just associated ethics and accountability with liberals. The ballot question passed the Georgia Republican Party Executive Board unanimously and the resolution passed the full delegation overwhelmingly.

    • rrrrr says:

      I just thought View was paraphrasing Speaker “17K” Ralston’s stance prior to your convention vote…

      • View from Brookhaven says:

        Bingo. C’mon guys…I wasn’t being serious. I quoted “Blazing Saddles”, for crying out loud.

  3. Julianne Thompson says:

    LOL…Okay 🙂 Sorry, I have never seen “Blazing Saddles”. My husband made me watch “Caddyshack” for the first time the other day. He says I am missing out on all the great movies!

    • Calypso says:

      Julianne, once you watch ‘Blazing Saddles’ you will become cultured, sophisticated, polished, and your education will be complete. It is the cinematic equivalent to finishing school. How have you made it this far in life with the esteemed ‘Blazing Saddles’ missing from your resume?

      You owe it to yourself, as well as the rest of humanity, to watch the ultimate life-lesson of ‘Blazing Saddles’ this weekend, if not sooner. You will then be a whole person.

      Once you have added that to your repertoire, next on your list of must-see’s should be ‘Animal House’.

  4. Julianne Thompson says:

    @Calypso…now I have seen Animal House. It seems to be on constant autoplay at our house. 🙂

    • Calypso says:

      In all honesty, the humor of Mel Brooks in ‘Blazing Saddles’ far exceeds the sophomoric pranks of the National Lampoon writers in ‘Animal House’. Though I heartily laugh at both movies whenever I watch them.

  5. The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

    Movies like ‘Animal House’ and (especially) ‘The Jerk, appear to be the inspiration for the ongoing disaster that attempts to pass itself off as the Georgia General Assembly these days.

    • Calypso says:

      Watch out now LDIG, you’re getting close to smearing a couple of pretty good movies by associating them with the GA.

      • The Last Democrat in Georgia says:

        Good point. That was a pretty vicious insult to a couple of classic films.
