    Remember, he has a "job" heading Public Broadcasting in Georgia, which he was appointed to by his colleagues in the GA assembly, and yet no one can figure out what his job actually is. He has never reported for it, or done anything at it, but he has gotten paid for it, regularly.

    He's a real star, too: he is not a TEA bagger: he was the machine builder of the N. Georgia Republican base after its first ascent in the 1980's. (It took over from a S. Georgia machine that was predominantly Democratic and coincided with Newt.) Neither shame nor education nor honesty have been requirements for their success. (And Jack Kingston, despite representing the S. Georgia coastal area, came through that machine. No one dare say that the funding of the machine relies on the drug money and crime that launders money in the mountains. Instead, it's all real estate.)

    Everyone's innocent of some crime.

    •  My husband ran against Kingston in the '06 (0+ / 0-)

      election for his house seat.  I sure hope he doesn't make it through the primary for Senate.  A good way to get rid of him.  After all in 1994 (?) Jack ran against term limits until he got in.
