but If I was asked about the ally question I would have said:

“Yes but even allies have disagreements and arguments on occasion. That’s just life.”

How hard is that?

I wanted to get a comment from Liz Carter running in the Georgia 4th district against Hank “I’m not a geologist but I play one in the congress” Johnson. Her Chief of staff Cheryl Prater remembered me from CPAC (proving the Cannoli rule correct) and did me one better. Rather than a simple comment she graciously consented to give me an interview over the phone. It was VERY informative.

Before anything else it must be understood that this district GA-4 is rated Safe democratic according to GQ politics map. This is a majority-minority district that elected Cynthia McKinney so any Republican was going to have a tough time of it.

That was my first question: How could she win in such a district? She answered that the Healthcare bill had changed everything. Voters in the area were disgusted with the bill and how it was passed. I then asked her specifically about the comments of Doug Shulman, her thought in one word:

“Appalling!”

She reminded me of the promises that the changes wouldn’t hurt the middle class and pointed to the congressional leadership saying that feeling in her district was running 60-40 against the bill. Take another look at that GQ map and run that through your head.

The Clincher was the local NAACP event she attended in Rockville. She was greeted warmly by really great people. Their focus was all about solutions. The feeling is that congress went too far and were more interested in Power than in Service. Her own solutions and suggestions are on her site here. In our interview she stressed the idea of “Health Courts”, from her site:

Malpractice cases today are often won by emotion and who has the best attorney. By creating health courts, we remove emotion and allow opinions to be decided by those who understand the practice of medicine.

Even more incredible was their reaction concerning the Media. The were fed up with it, they concluded that they were not getting the true picture from the MSM. As they put it: “Truth Matters!”

If you are getting the NAACP deciding that the Mainstream media can’t be trusted then the seminal change I was discussing is upon us. The same issues, regardless of race, face all.

I asked about the Tea Party movement, it is active in the area and as CNN has discovered is not not the monochrome racists that the Democratic Leadership would have you believe. She said the democrats: “fundamentally think that people will forget”. She disagrees, the People aren’t stupid, and if the administration is foolish enough to push “immigration reform” (read Amnesty) it will be the final straw. The people are already ready to revolt, this will send them over the edge.

The one wild card is the democratic primary. There is a real chance that Mr. Johnson might not survive it. Vernon Jones in particular seems capable of knocking him off, but Liz declares she is ready for Johnson, Jones or anyone the Democrats have to offer.

In the short time I had she really impressed me. Take a peek at her blog and you will be impressed too. I’ve very happy for the people of GA-4 they have such an excellent choice to represent them.

One more thing about what Stormy Daniels said…

from this post.

Forgetting the sin aspect for the sake of this post and just looking at it as a guy. There is something that was said that astounds me and I just have to comment on it.

Warning this post is slightly vulgar! (more…)

it’s only because he isn’t paying attention:

“As I have said for well over a year, it is time that our government and our tax policy begin rewarding entrepreneurship and creativity again. It is time again to inspire positive risks and out-of-the-box thinking in the interest of growing a strong economy and a strong America.
“For me, this spirit can be summed up in the RNC’s investment of donor funds at Voyeur.
“As someone who has worked extensively in both the club and film side of the Adult Entertainment Industry, I know from experience that a mere $1900 outlay at a club with the reputation of Voyeur is a clear indication of a frugal investment with a keen eye toward maximum return. . . .”

Via the other McCain who has the perfect line (and a rule 5 class photo) at the link:

You might get the RNC to buy that excuse, guys, but don’t try it with your wife.

One other point from the article where this story came from:

“As is the case with so many of my fellow Louisianans, I have been a registered Democrat throughout my life. But now I cannot help but recognize that over time my libertarian values regarding both money and sex and the legal use of one for the other is now best espoused by the Republican Party.”

Listen if a party is losing porn stars on one side and faithful Catholics who go to daily mass and have worn out 3 new Testaments over 60 years from daily reading then they are in BIG trouble! If both are voting republican then that’s the definition of the big tent!

Willie how is it this isn’t on News you can’t use?

And maybe I should have titled the post slightly differently.
