Among the flood of Stacey-Abrams-Veepstakes articles, two this week caught my attention. First was Marc Thiessen’s column in The Washington Post comparing Abrams to Sarah Palin. No one doubts that Georgia House Minority Leader to VP is a big jump. But it’s hard to compare a ticketmate who’s greatest was the sheerest of veneers hiding
Yesterday Georgians thought the Vernon Jones cancer might finally be exorcised from our body politic. Well guess what: we were fools think Rep. Jones (D-Slimeball) would go out gracefully. He should just switch parties at this point. He fits in believing he’s a victim and with his thought-free flipflopping.
Less than 24 hours after supporting Governor Kemp’s decision to reopen Georgia, President Trump now “totally disagrees” with Kemp. Speaking at his daily supplication fest Covid-19 briefing, President Trump said: “I told the governor of Georgia, Brian Kemp, that I disagree strongly with his decision to open certain facilities.” Meanwhile Trump’s AG says he’s willing
This is your last chance to get on the Stacey Abrams for VP bandwagon before you become a bandwagoner (“I was with her before she sold out”). In a wide-ranging feature in Elle magazine, Abrams explicitly makes her case: I would be an excellent running mate. I have the capacity to attract voters by motivating
Rep. Vernon Jones (D-Slimeball) has carried a cloud of controversy over Georgia politics for 20 years with no signs of letting up. Today he endorsed President Trump (R-Slimeball) perhaps for all their similarities: ALLEGED sexual assault, being unfit for public office, rampant attention whoring..

Fresh off his king-making endorsement in the Democratic Presidential Primary, Jim Clyburn is setting his sights on Georgia. In last weekend’s “Lunch with the FT”, Clyburn made clear what he’s looking for from Joe Biden’s VP nod: an African-American woman. (The Financial Times is so exceedingly good you should all subscribe to it–and you’ve got
Obviously picking up the endorsement from the congressman representing one of the most Democratic counties in the country is a boon to Joe Biden. But another nugget from The AJC‘s story on Congressman Hank Johnson’s endorsement is perhaps more interesting: [S]tate Rep. Billy Mitchell, the president-elect of the National Black Caucus of State Legislators, promised
Vice President Joe Biden is poised to comfortably win the Georgia POTUS Primary. The latest poll from Landmark Communications/WSB has Biden with more than twice the amount of his two closest rivals, Senator Bernie Sanders and former NYC Mayor Michael Bloomberg. The triumvirate have 32.1%, 14.2% and 14% respectively. However, the most dangerous foe is
Atlanta Mayor Keisha Lance Bottoms will campaign for Joe Biden on Friday. The AJC is reporting Bottoms will be in the scenic cities of Fort Dodge, Algona and this blogger’s favorite, Mason City. Mayor Bottoms has previously campaigned for Biden in Texas and South Carolina.
