      Or just more of the same? Either way, I hope the Georgia Peaches keep talking.

        Dem are almost always the African AMerican areas.  I live in rural/suburban GA, Barrow COunty.  I went to a Dem meeting.  They weren't Dems. They were moderate Republicans--more right-wing than msot NE Republicans. People don't  even run as Dems in this area because they KNOW it's the Kiss of Death in a white rural area. My mornic loser of a state rep in the legislature ran unopposed.

        Chambliss is typical of GA--mostly a corporatist with strong streak of Christian fundy. SO are Gingrey and Broun.

          i'm 27 year old white male and the level of cluelessness on the part of other 20 something white males is baffling. Ron paul? really? as if there aren't any democrats for pot legalization?

          you know what's happening and you'd think your own were smarter then that but no clearly not. They clearly only see the fun and bush who they wanted to have a drink with and that the guys running in the gop are white christian republicans

          you have to sit there and just facepalm. people think that means their represenatives are on their side because they have the same skin color

          the ammount of trust whites have for other whites without any second guessing at all is astonishing.

          I don't understand.

            I'm a transplant to GA. Husband was raised here and hates it as much as possible. The single strongest influence her is The Church--whichever form of fundyism they follow. And there is still a lot of disdain for those with skin naturally darker than a spray tan. The only politician here I truly respect and would vote for happily is John Lewis.

            I want out of here--but we can't afford to leave.

      tropical sexually transmitted disease.

      But, then again, when Broun talks, he sounds like a tropical sexually transmitted disease.

      What we call god is merely a living creature with superior technology & understanding. If their fragile egos demand prayer, they lose that superiority.

    •  Keep eyes on Karen Handel (1+ / 0-)

      She's also in the race and don't forget she lost a squeaker primary to Nathan Deal for governor in 2010 so her name recognition is still fresh.

      Things would be much worse if she won because she's a better schemer than Gingrey or Broun.

      Left is right and right is wrong.
