The Georgia Senate Polling
No, Michelle Nunn is not suddenly ahead of David Perdue. Truth be told, polling in Georgia is terrible. The bulk of the polling has been done by political consulting shops that are trying to diversify and have suddenly become pollsters. Most all the polling has been bad. Historically, SurveyUSA has been used as an outside pollster and its polling has always managed to capture trends, | Read More »
Jimmy Carter’s Grandson Claims to be a “Fiscal Conservative”
Jimmy Carter’s grandson, Jason Carter, wants to be Georgia’s next Governor. The other night in a gubernatorial debate, Carter declared himself a fiscal conservative. Just how conservative? Carter wants to destroy Georgia’ budgetary reserves to fund an additional $1 billion to the state’s education budget. He wants to spend a billion extra a year for five years. He also wants to increase funding for transportation | Read More »
Democrats Say What’s Good for the Nation is Terrible for Georgia
When the unemployment rate has gone up nationally, Democrats have relied on one major explanation. So many people dropped out of the workforce that, once the job market started growing, the people who came back in to search for jobs were reclassified as unemployed. We have, in fact, seen this pattern nationwide. People drop out of the workforce and are no longer considered unemployed. It | Read More »
Democrats in Michigan and Georgia Engage in Elaborate Scheme to Steal the Election
The House Minority Leader in the Georgia State House, Stacy Abrams, leads an organization now being investigated for fraudulent voter registration applications. WSB television in Atlanta broke the story last night. The group, New Georgia Project, is a subsidiary of Third Sector Development run by Stacy Abrams.

Government pre-schools are limiting parental options
Parents sending their three- and four-year olds to preschool are facing increasing pressure to use government schools, as secular, elitist educators use government funding as a back door to remove parental choice from pre-school options.

The Special Ones in Georgia (Part Two)
The Special Ones, Part 2. Last week I did a column on “The Special Ones” wherein I contended that 5% of you Georgians are special because you passed the moral fitness test to get a GWCL. It’s pretty good to be part of the 5%, right? But did you know that there’s an even more select group? The Georgia Legislature has, over the years, carved | Read More »
Top Fundraiser for Jason Carter (D-GA) Wants Carbon Tax. Calls Opponents to the Idea “Nutcases”.
Jason Carter is the Democrats’ nominee for Governor of Georgia. His top fundraiser flew to Aspen, CO on Tuesday to champion a carbon tax to fight “global warming.” Carter’s fundraiser also called those who oppose destroying the economy to deal with global warming “nutcases.” Do not be surprised. Jason Carter’s top fundraiser also recently called Hamas a legitimate political actor and accused Israel of war | Read More »
Georgia Guns Everywhere?
The Georgia Safe Carry Protection Act (HB60), called “Guns Everywhere” by its detractors, has created a bit of confusion in the general public, so I thought I’d go over some points very briefly that you can tack on your refrigerator as a daily reminder of how safe, or unsafe, Georgia remains after HB60’s passage. I get asked lots of questions: 1. “Does everyone need a weapons | Read More »
The Special Ones in GA (Part One)
Georgia’s Legislature gives special privileges to certain folks when it comes to carrying a weapon. While most of you are ineligible to carry a “weapon” (handgun or knife with blade greater than 5″), some of you have taken the time and trouble to get a Georgia Weapons Carry License at the probate court so that you can carry a handgun outside of your home, business | Read More »
#GAGov: Jason Carter Doesn’t Want to Talk about Gay Marriage
Carter is, of course, the grandson of Jimmy Carter, who was until recently the worst President since WWII. Anyways, he’s running against incumbent Republican Nathan Deal this November, and he apparently really doesn’t want to talk about how he feels about gay marriage. Jim Galloway’s Political Insider blog at the Atlanta Journal-Constitution tells us that he recently spoke at a LGBT fundraiser in Atlanta last Thursday organized | Read More »
Ending Spending Uses Michelle Nunn’s Memo for Advertising
Michelle Nunn’s campaign in Georgia is off to a rough general election start with the release of her campaign memo. It gives away the game that she’s a liberal outsider who is going to have to pretend to be a moderate Georgian. Our friends at Ending Spending are first out of the gate with an ad based on that memo.
Michelle Nunn: A Consultant’s Golem Coming for the Jews
A golem is a being of inanimate material magically given anthropomorphic abilities. Back when I was a political consultant I would tell candidates that they were lumps of clay to be molded. In a memo discovered by National Review, Michelle Nunn has all the makings of not being her own woman, but rather being a consultant’s golem. Not only a golem, but one whose organization | Read More »
Michelle Nunn (D-GASen Candidate) Wants Jewish Donors, Gives to Hamas
Eliana Johnson broke news today with the release of a confidential campaign plan from Georgia Democratic Senate candidate Michelle Nunn. The campaign plan details the demographic models, special interest groups, donor targets, and the assumption in the campaign plan that Nunn will have a compliant media. This is what Johnson focused on in much of her post. For me, the real news comes in the | Read More »
The Chamber’s Immigration Stance Hurts Their Georgia Pick
All the public and private polling I saw, like this for example, had Jack Kingston ahead of David Perdue. All the buzz privately was Kingston ahead of Perdue. And Kingston lost. I supported him. He’s one of the few candidates I supported in the Georgia runoffs who lost. And I can tell you why Kingston lost. I have evening drive time on the most listened | Read More »
