So i'm pulling a Colbert. I am a SuperPAC
No more talking to, or volunteering for, US Senate candidates for me. I'm going to be busy fundraising from my former professor's and their cohorts (a perk of taking a decade to finish my philosophy degree).
Very Serious People beware---Election 2014 is the year the reality based community occupy the US Senate race in Georgia....
I told the wife the surprise with... "well the good news is I'm not running for office in 2014..."
But no matter how small a cable buy it ends up being, rural Georgia will have a Professionally made Social Security attack ad directed at whatever joke makes its way out of the GOP primary. Count on it. I learned on the campaign trail in 2010 that no matter the party, people wanted Social Security protected from efforts by the 1% to make cuts.
The recent Jane Fonda segment of the Georgia Gang was the straw that broke this Teamsters back. The reality based community has been shutdown and shut out of the debate in Georgia politics by the crew that just led and fed the inspiration for the GOPshutdown. The Chamber of Commerce is busy trying to take back the GOP from within the party. I'll help with a punch or two directed at the Tea Party nuthouse currently running the show in Georgia. As Chomsky has always noted, we must expand the scope of the debate if we are ever going to be heard. I think I can help give a little tiny push to help make that happen. Work hard, hit harder and do lots of homework on the issues.
Its not like Michelle "No Backbone" Nunn and her band of DC big donors didn't know this was coming. They should have been listening to us. It took a coordinated FBI led corporate-state suppression effort to disperse us. Be we are still here.
And thanks to the Supreme Court, rural TV viewers in Georgia will hear one of us (I'll need some help ya'll) say loud and clear Protect Social Security. Free Speech rules!!
