I am such a homeboy and I get defensive when I think my Georgia homies are getting a raw deal.  Of the other hand, when homies don’t have other homies watching their backs anything can happen.  When Newt Gingrich became Speaker of the House, the situation was good for Georgia in my opinion (pork) like Illinois and Obama now.

I am not a Republican so I don’t know what happened but I have always wondered if Tom Delay and Dick Armey weren’t watching Newt’s back as “our” speakership slipped away.  Tom Delay will be on the next season of Dancing With the Stars but I will be supporting former Dallas Cowboy Michael Irvin, the lovely singer Mya and the actress Debi Mazar from HBO’s Entourage and two Spike Lee films.  (See how I indirectly support Lee who attended a Georgia Black college.)

Michael Irvin could have used a better entourage during his playing days when he stayed in drama and Newt should have had me up in the speaker’s office watching his back.  Like Elvis and the Memphis mafia and those fools around Michael Jackson, Michael Tyson and Michael Vick, you need someone who can look you in the eye and say, “I have a bad feeling about this” or “you might need to reconsider this one.”

So Dick Armey was on Meet the Press yesterday and he made some interesting points about Freedomworks and the healthcare debate but I was still thinking that they hung the homie Newt out to dry.

When the heat got hot, I wished Tupac and Biggie Smalls would have moved to rural Oregon, Colorado or something to let the situation cool down.  Debi Mazar was in the film Malcolm X and when I watch that movie I was thinking “stay in Africa for a few years Malcolm because Harlem and America are red hot.”  Emiliano Zapata said, “I’d rather die on my feet than live on my knees.”

Sometimes a self-imposed exile is the thing to do.  You don’t see Ice Cube or Dr. Dre living in south central L.A. these days because they matured to a point that Michael Vick is just approaching.  It’s a balancing act because some homies you keep and some you let go—you and I can be on both sides of that theory.
