Your morning jolt: Trashing Obama’s first 100 days, and Leah Sears says she’s ‘over’ it

The largest crowd of conservatives in metro Atlanta on Tuesday evening paid $30 a head to listen to the talk radio line-up of WGKA (920AM) trash President Barack Obama’s first 100 days in office.

Several hundred (their estimate, not mine, but it was SRO) gathered at the Cobb Energy Performing Arts Center to listen to Dennis Prager, Hugh Hewitt and Bill Bennett — who were at the tail end of a 12-city tour.

One of the co-sponsors was Sadie Fields and the Georgia Christian Alliance. But it was not her event, as demonstrated by the pay-as-you-go bar.

Ralph Reed was there as well. Ray McBerry, the Republican candidate for governor, was in the audience. John Oxendine was also greeted from the stage — but we did not see him, only supporters. Also attending was a Republican magician with a flaming wallet.

He says politicians and the media spend too much time focusing on the finances of health care. Gingrich says more attention must be paid to cultural changes such as requiring students to exercise, putting grocery stores in the inner city and incentivizing people to not smoke.

Here’s the question: If a state should consider paying girls not to get pregnant, would that be payment for abstinence, or birth control? And if birth control — well, that’s an interesting Gingrich thought.

Taking the fight over sexual academics to Facebook

When he last appeared in the AJC two weeks ago, state Rep. Calvin Hill (R-Canton) had — before a House committee — backtracked a bit on his criticism of state universities that offer programs with a sexual emphasis.

Hill defended his interest in the issue but said he never specifically accused Georgia State University of doing anything wrong. He also said the media had blown the subject out of proportion.

“It’s been taken sideways by people who like the titillating words,” he said.

Apparently, Hill’s interest has been revived. On his Facebook page yesterday afternoon, the lawmaker posted this:

Exposing the Obscene Classes in GA Universities: You are paying for it!

They just don’t get it! Those off the wall folks that think I am gay bashing when I exposed classes on “Queering The South” at Kennesaw State and “ Queer Theory” at UGA, not to mention Georgia State’s experts in Male Prostitution, Queer Theory and Oral Sex.

I am exposing what your taxes are paying for. I have …
