Alright, I always register to vote in the Republican primary. I don't always vote for the winner of that primary in the general, even if I may have voted for them in the primary. I just know that the R candidate is the most likely to win, so any influence I have is going to be in the primary vote.
Anyway, my choices for our new Senator from GA are:
a businessman who turned companies around with mass layoffs and has absolutely no political experience or any credentials to tell me he is "in touch" with normal people and their issues.
A woman who is fairly politically experienced, but has the dubious distinction of being endorsed by Sarah Palin and other tea party wing nuts. I like that she has risen up without a college education and has a life story that sounds like she's dealt with some hardship in life (left home at 17, made it the hard way in a man's world, etc).
A congressman from Savannah who seems to be mostly sane with an endorsement from partisan hack, Sean Hannity.
Plus we have two tea party lunatics who are thankfully being blown out the polls.
Anyway, so I'm not really keen on any of these candidates. I'm waiting to hear more from Michelle Nunn, who has a good shot at my vote in the general. Mostly, I'm wondering if it's worth leaving the house to go vote for any of these clowns. I don't know much about any of them other than the mud they've been throwing at each other in what looks to be the start of a very nasty campaign season. I know Purdue called his opponents babies in one ad, to which the response was him as a fat baby who at too much cake and then apparently shit his pants. That's about the most accurate political picture I've seen. Do I want a baby who's crying because it's not getting its way or the baby who's crying because he crammed too much into his mouth?
