Nathan Deal, the Republican candidate for governor, has Tweeted out an offhand endorsement from WSB Radio’s Neal Boortz this morning. Said Boortz, according to a Deal campaign transcription:
“This one has been fun to watch over the past week. Virtually all of the Democrat candidates have had their noses stuck so far up the teacher’s union hindquarters that some of them are going to need resuscitation….
“Roy Barnes is so beholden to the teacher’s unions that if they asked him to moo like a cow … he would do that and give milk as a bonus.
“You folks in Georgia need to do something. For my money, Nathan Deal is your best bet.”
This is not really a surprise. Boortz has co-authored two books on the Fair Tax with U.S. Rep. John Linder, who is backing Deal.
But an obnoxious reporter asked the Deal campaign if it was comfortable with the Talkmaster’s libertarian-like refusal to disavow either gay marriage or abortion. Boortz might even know a few Log Cabin Republicans.
“We hate nothing but lies,” replied Deal spokesman Brian Robinson.
