I Blame Scott Henry

On the day Creative Loafing publishes its annual Golden Sleaze Awards, the Georgia Republican Leadership loses its mind.

Governor Perdue crawls back from whatever fishin' hole he's been hiding in to do something no governor has done in 40 years. Veto the budget.

Glenn Richardson, already teetering on the edge of crazy, actually shuts the Governor's staff out of the House and starts recruiting Democrats to override a veto of the first Republican Governor in 8 generations.

Placed in a near impossible political position, Lt. Gov Casey Cagle chooses to walk around naked in the vain hope no one will notice the "emperor's new clothes".

Yeoman's work, Mr. Henry. Yeoman's work, indeed.

Off-topic, but, this immediately made me think of you so I had to post. Dude, have you seen Wooten's "column" (bulleted list) today? Abstinence only education doesn't work, but we need to keep it up, 'cause government (as well as churches and, mysteriously, "the middle class") has a responsibility to encourage some behavior and discourage others! Yeeeeehaw for the nanny state... that's what certain Republicans like to make fun of "liberals" about, right?

Yeah I saw it. There's only so much conservative craziness a man can digest in one day. It's almost beer time right?

Maybe we should do a pandering cover someday that highlights the useless but good sound bite legislation that gets submitted like abstinence. I'm a father of 11 year old girl and 7 year old boy. I'm fine with teaching abstinence as long as it's part of an overall sexed course that covers all the basics.

My wife has already had the 1st phase of the talk with my daughter. We will both participate in the next phase.
