Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s worst use of social media

originally published 1/31/2010 Cancel CNN’s Twitter account — that’s 140 characters or less. They just don’t know when to stop. The network’s SOTU coverage included John King reading such insightful Tweets as “Go Obama, let’s do it!” and “This is painful to watch.” Indeed, CNN’s incessant pandering to technology is painful to endure. No one … Continue reading Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s worst use of social media

Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s most unwelcome political comeback

I’d like to think the majority of white Southerners are embarrassed by the Confederacy, but 2010 made me wonder.

He felt passionate enough to contribute innocently as an private individual to three campaigns that he cared … Continue reading Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s worst (best?) example of hyperbole

Pointless year in review presents … 2010’s most corrupt politician

Are Georgians better off than they were 8 years ago? Only if they’re named Sonny Perdue. There’s a reason the governor refused to place his financial interests in a blind trust, bucking tradition.
