Hopefully it won’t take long to see some results.  I’ve got my fingers crossed that Jim Martin is the next Senator to represent the State of Georgia.  I for one will throw a party if Saxby Chambliss is the next Republican casualty.

This outcome of this seat will tell if the Democrats will get their much needed and wanted 60 seat majority.  Now if someone would just give me some damn numbers, I’d be a happy camper right now.

Updates…well maybe I should have kept my mouth shut.  We are getting smoked in Georgia right now.  Only 9% is in, but if this keeps up I’m going to bed one sad puppy.  The link below will take you to resuts.

Obama on his Way to Georgia…Nope, but they’ve got Ludacris?

Another little tid bit that makes you double check the validity of the source.  Apparently Ludacris is on his way to campaign for Jim Martin.  I’ll admit this perplexes me a bit…what’s up with Georgia??

Although, I guess I’d rather have Ludacris than Sarah Palin…but hey that’s just me.

Chambliss, Cocky or Secure?

Saxby Chambliss.  Every time I hear that name the first thing that comes to mind is the little vomit taste in my mouth.  I’ll admit, I’m no lover of the freshman Senator from Georgia.  In fact, I really just feel pure rage and utter contempt.  Max Cleland is the second thought that flashes through my mind, or maybe it’s the first and it causes the vomit taste. 

I’m hoping the good old boy from the South takes a tumble.  I guess like everyone else, I’ll have to wait for the results from the run off on December 2nd to see if the Democratic Challenger, Jim Martin, has done enough to swing the state of Georgia into the land of purple.

Chambliss and Martin Running Neck and Neck

Many polls have Chambliss and Martin in a pretty tight race.  Some have Chambliss leading, but within the margin of error.

Want to Tee Off…Only if you are White!

The South Carolina Republican State Chair, Katon Dawson, has announced his bid to become the next Chair of the Republican National Committee.  Interestingly enough he belonged to a “whites only” golf club for years.  How long ago did he relinquish his membership?  Uh…two months ago!  When did he begin championing letting “people of color” in?  Uh…three months ago!  His spokesman Rob Godfrey, called this “gotcha” style Washington politics.  Uh, sure, If that’s what you want to call it….

Interestingly enough one of his opponents, Michael Steele, wouldn’t be allowed on the green.  This is a good time.  If this is where the RNC and the Republican Party wants to go…I say let them!  I also say 2010 is looking better and better for the Democrats! 

On a side note, where the Hell do these Republicans get their names?  I thought Saxby Chambliss was bad, now we get to read about Katon Dawson?  And they say my people are elitists…hahahaha

RNC has Deep Pockets for Chambliss

The RNC is bankrolling Saxby Chambliss.  Not really surprising considering his reelection may be needed to keep the Democrats from gaining a filibuster proof majority in the Senate. 

Rudy Giuliani has apparently decided to make an appearance fund raising for Chambliss.  I wonder though if Rudy should be fund raising for himself to pay off his own campaign debt, but hey that’s just me.  McCain and Romney have put in appearances as well.

Jim Martin has received some help from Bill Clinton and Al Gore.  I’m still hoping the President Elect will make an appearance or two as well.
