    Even if YOU ran, it would give him something to think about.  I understand that Athens is in his district and I KNOW PLENTY of liberals THERE.  I don't understand why even a political science professor @ University of GA couldn't have run against this horrible man.

    I mean, even "Darwin" got 400 write-in votes against Broun.  When a non-citizen who's been dead for over 100 years gets that number of votes, you know any Democrat could've done better.

      I've been ranting about the lack of candidates put forward for years, and have decided to help do something about it.  I live in Cobb County, which means my focus is Gingrey, Price, the county commission slots, and state legislative slots for the area.

      You're right about Athens.  It mystifies me that no one stepped forward. You have a university represented by a flat earther.  

      I'd be a terrible candidate myself (wild youth, crazy left politics in my twenties, opposition researchers would have a field day with me). But searching out candidates for every single slot should be doable.

      I was horrified that of 14 candidates in the special elections in north metro only one was a Democrat.

      Maybe I'll check around and see if people I know in Athens know of any possible candidates.
