... and what would have been a more rational response?

I don't worry too much about Republicans and assorted wingnuts taking my advice on methods for not being crazy, so I've written a post on my blog Bluestate Geogia outlining why hiding behind a printer might not be the only option open to a legislator who is asked questions by a reporter.

The Georgia House and Senate are crazy to an astonishing degree at the moment.  Recently Bryan Long from Better Georgia filmed part of a seminar for state senators on Agenda 21 mind control before he was discovered and ousted from the room.  This incident was notable only because it was uncovered and filmed.  No doubt this is the tip of the iceberg, and the undiscovered crazy runs deep.

It's hard to expect legislators inundated with the tea party crazy which afflicts the contemporary GOP to behave in a sane manner.  But we can't lose sight of the fact that as entertaining as GOP antics can be, the GOP has supermajority control over the Georgia legislature.  Clowns are for the circus, not for crafting legislation.

The answer to the question "Why did Georgia's state senator Bill Heath hid behind a printer" is: "Because he's crazy."  Our next question should be "Why isn't the Democratic Party of Georgia targetting and contesting seats held by lunatics?"

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
