Are we on the same planet?

The long, painful slide to irrelevance continues for Bill Shipp. Not only do I think he's just flat-out making up stuff now, but it's also clear that he's either not paying attention to what's actually going on in state politics or some folks have reached the same conclusion I have ... which is that the poor guy's time has come and gone.

As for the state party, it may be in the minority, but it's been anything but quiet the past few months. I get emails and mailers and phone calls pretty regularly, and there are plenty of cases of news coverage throughout the mainstream media and the blogs.

It appears Shipp's merely ignoring all of this activity because it enables him to parrot the false narrative that state Democrats are sitting on their hands and continue to put up this faux image that he's some crusading independent out to rid the state of corrupt legislators.

There's a guy just like him in Mississippi named Bill Minor. I dont even read Shipp any more. I think guys like that are spread all over the south.

I agree with Shipp. What is he making up?

The state Democratic party may send out nice emails to it's supporters, but they really aren't making a lot of noise on the hustings.

They have much to work with, both in terms of Republican policy and personal peccadillos, but are doing next to nothing to exploit their opportunities. You may see the effort (I don't), but where are the results?

At the end of the day, Georgia is a one party state -- always has been -- and it's now the Republican party calling the shots.

Well, the argument Shipp was making wasn't about results, but rather about voice. The latter, I think, the party is doing quite well.

The results, as you noted, are fleeting as of now, and I'm hopeful that will change over time.

"Don't talk bad about Bill Minor."

I didnt say anything bad about him. All I was implying was that Bill Minor is rather...uh...minor.
