bet on barnes in 2010

Roy Barnes all but announces another run for governor, and how could he resist?

Republican John Oxendine is not to be taken seriously, and does Georgia really want a female Sonny? Okay, that’s harsh — Karen Handel couldn’t possibly be as ineffectual as Gov. H. Dumpty, but his endorsement does the current secretary of state no favors.

Nathan Deal would be the GOP’s best alternative, but the longtime House member faces steep odds. Ironically, Deal — a former Democrat — backed Barnes’ first run for governor in 1990.

I wasn’t living in Georgia during Barnes’ four years in office, but I know he pissed off both the teacher’s union AND flaggers. That’s enough for me.

    Barnes became a pompous ass, but he was effective. If he won there would be some serious battles between he and the two ass clowns running the house and senate.

    When did Sonny endorse Handel?

  3. I should’ve been more clear. There’s been no endorsement, but it’s widely accepted that Handel is Sonny’s candidate.
