I have never seen so many whining southerners in my life. From think-they-are-victimized Tea Partiers to lethargic Obama supporters, a relatively small percent of the population could change the game as others sleep. While driving an old pickup truck in middle Georgia this weekend, I came across a country song on the radio called “Lucky Man” by Montgomery Gentry. The guy in the song basically stated he couldn’t complain when you break it all down.
The luckiest man in Georgia politics is GOP governor candidate Nathan Deal. He might win the election on November 2, or take the contest into overtime with a runoff. Libertarian John Monds is benefiting on some level from voters disenchanted with the negative campaign ads from the two major parties’s candidates. Former governor Roy Barnes must be getting the message because in his new ad he sits behind a desk and ask the voters to make him governor again.
If or since Democrat voters are slow to come out for the general election, the Democrat ticket must “go hard” now. The traditional GOP establishment must be watching the clock and eager to get this thing over before the political center notices that the Tea Party has commandeered their party and those cats are out there…really out there.
There is an old joke about a football game between the insects and the bugs. The insects came from behind in the second half once the centipede came in as running back. The surprised coach asked the centipede “Man, where were you in the first half” and the centipede said, “In the locker room lacing up all these shoes.” It’s the second half and fourth quarter, the Democrat team needs to lace ‘em up and get in the game or the next two years will be rough Coach Obama. I don’t want to hear a word of whining from Democrats who didn’t push, pull or drag their friends and family to the polls.
