Doctrinaire Republicans are mega-pissed at Chambliss over his yes vote on the bailout, and are openly expressing feelings of betrayal. Jim Martin was ahead of the curve on that one and has made a lot of hay on it.
The massive gas shortage has also majorly cut into GOP support in the Atlanta 'burbs, Gingrich country.
Interesting how on cue the Obama supporters pile on Jerome rather than addressing the obvious racial hatred so present in Obama's church, from a multitude of racists, all caught on tape over and over again.
You can't escape this. No amount of name-calling at Jerome will solve this problem for you: Obama belongs to a radically racist "church," and has for 20 years. He is not fit to be president.
Same is happening with John Barrow in the 12th. Despite having a huge war chest, he faces a strong black challenger, State Sen. Regina Thomas, in the primary, who is clearly running to take advantage of Obama being on the ticket.
Personally I don't care, as Barrow is totally useless and votes GOP on every major issue, which Thomas wouldn't. But I offer this as more proof of the post's premise.
It's no different from what the media themselves have been saying for months. It's no worse than any of the other obvious things a Clinton has said in the past six months that were immediately interpreted as a sign of unrepentant racism.
