Reps. Davis and Bridges: please save some crazy for the rest of us

Thu, 22 Feb 2007 07:35:36 -0600

Radical Georgia Moderate Rusty Tanton writes, Representatives Steve Davis and Ben Bridges appear to be giving Rep. Bobby Franklin a run for his money for the title of "most friendly Georgia legislator to the views of fringe lunatics." Rep. Davis should certainly be nominated for an "efficiency in bigotry" award if nothing else. I'm thinking of adapting the Fulmer Cup to keep track of the insanity of Georgia legislators. We can make this a group project for next year's session.

Tue, 20 Feb 2007 20:13:14 -0600

Grayson Hurst Daughters writes in her latest Georgia Political and Policy Digest column: what great multi-taskers they are at the AJC! While busily restructuring their newsroom and operations last week, AJC management tossed around astonishing amounts of arrogance at the same time. Leonard Witt, Robert D. Fowler Distinguished Chair in Communication at Kennesaw State University, points out in his blog, PJNet, that not a single representative from the AJC, from any department nor in any capacity, bothered to show-up at SoCon07, Atlanta's first social media conference held on February 10th of this month.

In his latest Georgia Political Digest column, Radical Georgia Moderate Rusty Tanton writes, "Your standard-issue Republican legislator will drone on and on about government getting out of the way and letting the free market make decisions.
