With Us Still

Ah, the good, old, unreconstructed South. Don't let Obama's election fool you. It's with us still and Republican Senator Saxby Chambliss from my home state of Georgia is one of its stalwarts. Talk about a throwback, this man wouldn't have been out of place in the Confederacy, something he no doubt yearns for in his black heart of hearts.

Chambliss originally won his seat by smearing incumbent Democrat Max Cleland as soft on national security. He also insinuated that Cleland was a traitor, which really took some onions, given that Cleland has spent his life in a wheelchair as a result of wounds suffered in the Vietnam War. Like most of those Busheviks who've been so eager to rush into war, I'll bet old Saxby has never even been on the wrong end of a gun, unless it was while out hunting with a bunch of drunken cronies who were channeling Dick Cheney.

Old Saxby now finds himself in a runoff with Democratic challenger Jim Martin. It never should have come to this. In the general election, Chambliss got 50% of the vote, Martin got 47%, and the Libertarian candidate got 3%. Since Old Saxby failed to win a majority, it has gone to a runoff that will be held on Dec. 2. I expect Saxby to win, now that the Obama excitement has died down, and my fellow, knuckle-dragging citizens will have their Boss Hogg back in the Senate. You get what you deserve.

It seems like the Democrats could have chosen a better challenger. When it comes to image, Martin compares with Dennis Kucinich, and I don't mean that in a good way. He looks like a nerd, one of those who wasn't any good at math or science, who's grown up to become middle-aged. I had teachers in high school who looked like him, teachers we ran all over. Old Saxby hasn't gone easy on him either. He's been running ads accusing Martin of being soft on child sex offenders. This is particularly disgusting given the fact that Martin's daughter was kidnapped when she was eight years old. She was fortunately returned unharmed, but that doesn't make Old Saxby any less culpable. The man's a slimeball, and he's not even willing to stand behind his words. The ad isn't being run by his campaign, but by something called Freedom Watch, so that Old Saxby doesn't have to come on and say, I'm Saxby Chambliss and I approve this ad.

If the American people ever do decide to hit the streets with torches and pitchforks, I hope they find themselves a good, strong rope and go looking for Old Saxby.

WE HAVE MORE TO DO:

Democrat Jim Martin is in a runoff against Bush Republican Saxby Chambliss for the Senate seat from Georgia. Bush's Saxby Chambliss voted against spending a few measly dollars to provide health care coverage for Georgia, and Americas needy children. But he supported wasting hundreds of billions of your dollars, and the life BLOOD of Americas finest on an unnecessary war in Iraq.

At a time when 47 million of you have no health insurance coverage, and over 100 million of you with insurance are just one major illness away from complete financial destruction. Bush and Saxby Chambliss voted to make the heart break of bankruptcy relief even harder for all of you to use.

You see, Bush and Saxby Chambliss, and his family don't have to worry about their health care coverage. They have the finest health care coverage your tax money can buy for them. Courtesy of you. The American Tax payer. In fact, no one but the super rich can afford the health care coverage you the tax payer provide for Saxby Chambliss, and his family for FREE! with your tax dollars.

He supposedly works for you. But he doesn't think you and your family should have access to the type of taxpayer supported FREE health care that you provide for him, and his loved ones for FREE!. Doesn't that just make you BURRING MAD!

Vote for JIM MARTIN for US senator from Georgia. Vote for JIM Martin who will be on your side. Vote for JIM MARTIN who will work with President Obama and a majority congress for you. Vote for JIM MARTIN most of all for your-self, your family's, friends, and loved ones. Vote for JIM MARTIN for a better America, and a better World.

Don't let Saxby Chambliss make a chump out of you by tricking you into voting against your own best interest. Saxby chambliss is NOT! on your side. He's not one of you. He is on George Bush's side. And we all know what a catastrophe the Bush Chambliss administration has been the past 8 years.

Contact all your family and friends and do every thing you can to see to it that JIM MARTIN and GEORGIANS! take that senate seat back for Georgia, and America. No matter where you live in America. This is important to you. President Obama will need all the help, and power you can give him to try and fix this catastrophic mess that the Corrupt Bush Chambliss administration has created.

As I said before you will have to vote in overwhelming numbers to overcome the Bush Chambliss "Let Them Eat Cake" vote fraud machine. Vote early if you can. Then help everyone you can get to the polls and vote for JIM MARTIN. You and your loved ones don't have to be Saxby Chambliss's victims anymore.

I know you will get it done. Just like you did for President Obama.

God bless all of you

Hmmm, I don't really agree with the above post, but I'll leave it. Martin is certainly better than Chambliss, but he's no progressive. He's not going to be on my side. He's just the lesser of two evils.
