Politics as Usual?

This is what happens without any Democrats around: Republicans become free to snort all the political faerie dust they want, and watch as campaign staffers attempt to run other campaign staffers down with trucks. This is the kind of thing that happens in the South when it ain't football season. I adore the fact that campaign events in Georgia's 10th Congressional District require the attention of the local sherrif's office, homeowners demanding people remove themselves from private property, and that Minutemen were to be called upon to remove campaign signage. What will really boll your weevil is that the only provable part of the altercation is that someone put a dent into a truck with their hand, perhaps in self-defense. So much for bringin' your truck to a fistfight.

The "you might be a redneck" jokes just write themselves. Which I can say, because I've written a few in my time. I did used to live down the street from where this happened.

Greene needs care and treatment.

"He was foolish to try to stop the Greene for Congress campaign manager from taking pictures of his truck & license, by attempting to run him down. And he was foolish to think that this is how politics is done -- which is what the voters of Georgia are sick and tired of."

Running over politicians and their aides with trucks? I personally think that's something Georgia voters would like to see more of.

That would certainly inspire a heavy, heavy turnout at the polls.
