Col. Oscar Poole Rebukes, Recants, and Repents

I received an anonymous tip this morning telling me to check out Oscar Poole’s Facebook page (Col. Poole is the owner of Poole’s BBQ in Gilmer County and is known across). I did and saw this:

Poole's Recant

Col. Poole has rescinded his endorsement of former Dalton Mayor David Pennington, denounced Phil Neff’s remarks concerning Speaker David Ralston’s late father, and endorsed both Governor Nathan Deal and Speaker Ralston. That’s a pretty deal…especially when we’re less than a week away from primary election day. Have both the Pennington and Snider (or anti-Ralston) campaigns gone too negative to recover?

    Curious to know why anyone should care about what Col. Poole says or who he endorses or does not endorse?

      Meh. Seems nice. His middle name Homer? Who dresses him? Why does reality bother him so? Oh right…GOP….

      Probably get all them Ralston folk to come back for a meal, no doubt. And maybe he just landed the Pig Supper contract, idk. Good on him! A waitress and I had a nice talk about medical marijuana last summer.

      Better not say, or Homer will post on his Facebooks!

    Poole BBQ isn’t on my list to ever enjoy again. That’s just me. Besides, yellow has never been my favorite color.
