Pic-O-The Day, Georgia Gold Nuggets

From the Guys and Gals over at GeorgiaInfo.

A nice collection of some of the Yellow stuff that is currently littering the great state of Georgia's three major and 7 minor gold belts. What could you do with couple of pounds of raw gold at today's prices?

Democrat's are Setting Sail on the Wide Insurgen-sea?

Does this guy look like an insurgent?

Insurance agent maybe, insurgent? Nope! 

Guess what kids, he's the Insurgent in Chief (IIC) over at Rockin' Barry O's re-election camp for 2012 and the cats name is Joe Messina. Please note the opportunity for the addition of a staff member with the last name of Loggins looming somewhere in the fuzzy future.

You can get a "sneak peek" of our President's planned campaign courtesy of Mr. Messina over at BloomBerg.Com which dishes all the gory details of next years record setting $3 Billion dollar campaign of musical chairs to see who gets to hang out at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue whilst our nation continues it's headlong plunge into Kay-Tas-Tro-Fee. 

It's interesting reading for a plain old prole like me to see what kind of dollars it takes to get some face time with the current Commander in chief, well, one face in a room full of faces time anyway. How about $38,000 for a seat at a dinner? Or perhaps a cool $350,000 if you feel the need to be classified as a tip top democrat fundraiser with a shot at a night in the Lincoln bedroom. 

One thing is certain, our Republican brothers and sisters, emboldened by their apparent victories in 2010 will match the democrats step for step and dollar for dollar. Third party types will be left alone in their standard roles of bitching and kvetching and losing. Tis the nature of politics in our quite unnatural and contrived two party system and only one thing might change it. 

What could possibly upset the apple cart? I refer you to Joe Trippi, also a democrat operative who's been having nightmares about the possibility of some charismatic, internet based, social media savvy Tweet Meister emerging from the mists and actually connecting with the 50% of  American voters who just don't vote.

That gets my vote.

Here's to you, Ms. Merkleson, Pundits Love You more than You can Know.. Wo Wo Wo

What a hoot.

The ongoing saga of the mysterious Ms. Merkleson seems to be getting some legs over the mighty, mighty, AJC's Political Insider blog. My own opinion of  Senator Staton could not be lower, well it could be but since he's just a plain vanilla statist  republican he only rates the 3rd level of hell. He's also the cat that refused to invite me or any of the other Libertarian candidates in last years televised election debates in Macon after labeling the lot of us as ''icky".

Well icky is as icky does, so here's a tribute to Ms. Merkleson, where ever and who ever you actually are.

And here's to you, Mrs. Merkleson
Pundits love you more than you will know wo wo wo
Retweet please please, Mrs. Merkleson
Cagle reads most everything you say
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey

And here's to you, Mrs. Merkleson
FaceBook loves you more than you will know 
wo wo wo
Don't be a tease, Mrs. Merkleson
Cecil knows just what you're going to say
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey

Coo coo ca-choo, Mrs. Merkleson
Mad power drives you more than you will know 
wo wo wo
God bless you, please, Mrs. Merkleson
We doubt that you exist out there today
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey

Sitting on a sofa on a Sunday afternoon
Going to the candidates' debate
Laugh about it, shout about it when you've got to choose
Every way you look at it you lose

Where have you gone, Ms . Merkleson?
Georgia turns its lonely eyes to you 
woo woo woo
What's that you say, Mrs. Merkleson?
"Casy Cagle  has not left and gone away"
Hey hey hey, hey hey hey
