GA-Sen: 2 Days Out

As we approach Tuesday's run-off, a lot going on in the Georgia Senate race.

  • On Fox News Sunday today, Chris Wallace picked up on a moment featured in one of Jim Martin's ads in which Chambliss stated his version of "I really don't know that much about the economy." In the process, Wallace caught Chambliss in a lie trying to explain away his own ignorance.

    Watch it:

  • Laura Packard has another entry in her "On the bus with Jim Martin" series. Read it at Blog For Democracy.

  • The Alaska Daily News rips into Sarah Palin for campaigning for Saxby Chambliss:

    The man who couldn't bring himself to serve in the military said a man who left three limbs behind in war was a weakling who would turn the country over to terrorists.

    Chambliss was a congressman during the 9-11 attacks. Congressional Quarterly's "Politics in America 2006" noted that Congressman Chambliss "quipped that one route to security would be for local sheriffs to 'arrest every Muslim that comes across the state line.'"

    So there you have the fine American that Palin is trying to re-elect to the U.S. Senate.

    Gov. Palin's eldest joined the Army and has been deployed to Iraq. As a justifiably proud military mom, she might ask herself why she is using her conservative star power to support such a reprehensible Republican chicken hawk.

  • Barack Obama may not be going to Georgia to stump for Jim Martin but his online and campaign infrastructure sure is contributing to the cause. Per this MyBO post, you can get cracking on making phone calls for Jim Martin from home HERE and you can find your local field office and sign up for a GOTV shift HERE.

  • In Georgia or know someone who is? Jim Martin's website has all the voting info you could want including a link to the Secretary of State's poll location finder.

  • And now for your moment of zen:

I hope the Democratic GOTV operation

is fired up and ready to go.

In a low-turnout race, Martin can sneak in and win this one.

If you line up sleezy politicans--Saxby would be right in the front. I know of no one outside of Georgia except for Bush (who isn't campaigning for him either) who isn't disgusted by this giant sack of sh*t.  This guy would sell out his grandmother for a sack of weeds. I don't even like to read about this guy.

Re: GA-Sen: 2 Days Out

I just watched that video on the You Tube link. This is macabre thought but suppose the same Viet Cong were to pitch a hand grenade into that room (like the one that got Max Cleland). I am sure that to save his own skin Saxby would definitely pitch that kid next to him on top of it --- he has no morality, shame, or pride --what a class A j*rk.

Re: GA-Sen: 2 Days Out

I expect deeply southern Georgia to be a tough challenge for Democrats. I mean, look at the number of strictly partisan Republicans who voted for Stevens in Alaska despite 7 felony convictions. Still, I remain hopeful.
