The City of Brookhaven now has elected officials.  Congrats to Mayor elect J. Max Davis, who won despite Georgia Democrats digging up an old tax lien for the grand amount of $9.95.  In your march to claiming demographics will make you the majority party again, might I suggest you also add reason and perspective.

Also elected are Rebecca Chase Williams - the much better half of the Georgia Gang’s Dick Williams, Bates Mattison, and Joe Gebbia.

In a Senate Special Election which was originally framed as Bill Hembree versus former Speaker Glenn Richardson, the Republican nominee is actually Mike Dugan.  Dugan hails from Carroll County, which contained much more of the votes than Hembree’s Douglas or Richardson’s Paulding.  All politicals is local, and Dugan appears to be the most local in District 30.  He will go on to face Libertarian James Camp in a January 8th contest.

[sarcasm] Chalk up another victory for the Larry Storch School of Politics, also known as the Georgia Democrat Party. [/sarcasm]

And of course if we just did away with primaries by letting anyone who pays the filing fee run, and held one big election using instant runoff voting, we could have saved the costs of the election yesterday and the upcoming one on January 8th.

“In your march to claiming demographics will make you the majority party again, might I suggest you also add reason and perspective.”

Actually, Charlie, I think that its been mostly moderate Republicans that are looking at the numbers and claiming that demographics will likely make Democrats the majority party again someday.

By the looks of it, for the most part, Georgia Democrats as a whole don’t seem to be aware or even have grasped that the numbers are trending their way.

Right now, Georgia Democrats seem to be in the middle of a two-decade long real-life political re-enactment of the erstwhile television series “Lost”.

The entire Georgia Democrat Party seems to be organizationally and psychologically stranded out in the far out in the political wilderness out in the middle of nowhere.
