Holding "Republicans" and the Grand Old Party accountable to standards of low taxes and limited government. Taking one small step to protect the Republican "Brand."

There is ALWAYS Time for the National Anthem

There is ALWAYS Time for the National Anthem

Rule 1:  There is always time for the National Anthem.  Every event should start with a prayer followed by either the National Anthem or the Pledge of Allegiance. Corollary 1 to Rule 1:  Everyone should know the words to Star Spangled Banner’s first verse. If you don’t know the words by heart, just look below. Memorize...
The Tea Party and Tom Graves and the Continuing Resolution (Wheres Doug?)

The Tea Party and Tom Graves and the Continuing Resolution (Wheres Doug?)

Thursday, the US Congress passed the continuing resolution to keep the government funded for another 6 months.  It was called House Resolution 117.  This isn’t a real budget, its too small to be a real budget.  It is a resolution to keep wasting money at the current rate.  The Tea Party was against the resolution...

Jody’s Party of the [Slutty] People!

Well we all knew that the Democrats really know how to “get down” with all their talk about going broke buying birth control.  In case there is any doubt about what the Democratic Party stands for, take a look at the buttons being worn by the Illinois delegation to the Democratic National Convention today.  (Remember...
Republican Convention Better Live?

Republican Convention Better Live?

I have to admit an almost complete lack of interest in the RNC this year.   No doubt like hockey, soccer and lacrosse, it is a sport you have to see in person to really “get.”  Ironic that the RNC chose enemy controlled territory to hold the Convention.  Another example of Republicans missing the obvious....
Nobody Said Democrats Weren't Nice--they are Just Wrong

Nobody Said Democrats Weren’t Nice–they are Just Wrong

Having been practicing in Gainesville for a long time, I know one thing for sure:  I’m a minority within a minority–a Republican lawyer.  In Gainesville, almost all of the lawyers are Yellow Dog Democrats (who have to be Blue Dog Democrats because there are no more Democrats to vote for).  Jody Cooley is no exception...

Collins Send out RoboCalls Against Zoller on Social Issues (audio)

Just got this on my voice mail from the Collins camp.  To go this negative in this way makes me think that the poll numbers are bad for Doug and its now “no holds barred.”  Georgian’s don’t like this kind of negative attack ad, however.  And this is all the audio that I received, so...

South Hall Republican Club Candidate Forum

About 150 spectators, candidates, reporters, and staff attended the South Hall Republican Club Form on August 14, 2012.  During what might be for most candidates the last public speaking engagement, candidates for the races in the August 21, 2012 Runoff Election sparred with each other.  No race, or candidate, was untouched.  Despite the general civility,...

Georgia 9th Congressional Debate: Who’s the Liar?

The “L” word was used a LOT last night during the debate.  Not the one from the TV show, but the word “liar.”  I think it is an ugly word and should be reserved for extreme situations.  Apparently Doug and Martha both disagree with me.  The video follows.   I really like the format of...
