    I guess it’s some consolation that the straw poll is in no way indicative of what primary voters will decide next year. Otherwise, one would feel what’s left of one’s faith in GA-10 voters shaken because so many candidates were perceived to be outperformed by Jody Hice.

    These days, I have neither the time nor the patience for politics but I will say, Charles Bullock is a master of retoire and a genius in all things politics. I’m sure he did an awesome job moderating. For most on PP, college is a distant, faded memory(no offense)…but if anyone is ever fortunate enough to go school behind the Arch in that small GA town…I highly reccomend taking his class.
