I’m back from this afternoon’s Channel 2 Action News debate.
My questions: The tea party petition, Republican Nathan Deal’s personal finances, and Democrat Roy Barnes’ redistricting history.
But the real action may have been in the mailbox last home. What may be the last physical word from both candidates in the race for governor arrived at the homes of tens of thousands of Georgians on Saturday.
It boils down to this final argument from the candidates: Barack Obama versus rape.
The Republican mailer comes courtesy of the state GOP and features yet another photograph that pairs the president with Barnes. See it here. The mailer boosts the entire ticket.
It includes a nice mug shot of former Secretary of State Karen Handel and the following: “Elections have consequences for years and generations to come – none more so than this one. I urge you to join me in voting for the Republican ticket on November 2nd.”
Barnes continues to push the issue of the rape shield law – a sign of how crucial female voters are to whether the Democrat survives to fight on after Tuesday. Two similar mailers arrived Saturday.
He was a gang member who was staying at a neighbor’s house.
In the middle of the night, my sister’s dog woke her up barking and she got out of bed to let him outside. When she opened the back door, the attacker forcer his way in, locking the dog outside.
Over the next four hours, the attacker beat and raped my sister. He tried to kill her with a croquet mallet that he had taken from her yard, in addition to a knife and a can of spray paint that he brought with him…
I could never explain voting for Mr. Deal to my son. But more than that, I would never want to….
The Real Deal would have given more rights to rapists than to victims of rape.
