Drunk with power
As a guy who generally votes for the candidate with "R" next to their name, it must be oversold how much I hate Georgia Republicans. In a rare political agreement between the two of us, Doug does a great job laying out multiple reasons why they suck, but I'm especially furious over a single issue: Sunday alcohol sales, or the lack thereof.
I've written about it before, but it's shit like this that keeps me repeating myself:
Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle, the Senate president, isn't budging.
"At this time, there simply has not been any kind of broad expression of support for a vote on Sunday sales this year from Senate members or from the citizens of our state," said his spokeswoman, Jaillene Hunter.
Casey Cagle's phone numbers are (404) 656-6578 and (770) 297-0409. Today (Tuesday) is his birthday, so call to wish him a great one, and maybe even tell him you hope he gets a machine to dislodge that rod from his Nanny State-loving ass.
I won't be as crass on the phone, but you can bet I'll be making a "broad expression of support" at some point this afternoon. Please do the same.
(As of this posting, the poll on AJC shows 89.33% of over 500 respondents in favor of Sunday alcohol sales. But that's not broad, right?).
