Disconnected

Further showing his disconnect for reality, as well as an apparent lack of restraint for a campaign spokesperson, Tim Echols tells us that Paul Broun refusing to debate Bobby Saxon is the media's fault.

Granted this is a puzzling line of argument to take, and all that was lacking was Echols's writing 'I told the Athens Press Club thanks but thanks to that debate to nowhere.' Then again, I can't make much sense of what Broun and his allies do these days (well, aside from spending taxpayer money to get re-elected and propose bills addressing supposed issues in California while turning a blind eye to advocating for projects in Georgia).

Instead of trying to manipulate debate in this election, maybe the media should sit back and cover the events as they happen.

Um, like this one? How about this one?

Listen, this man doesn't represent this district. He promotes himself, and it's time that everyone realizes this. Help out Bobby Saxon, and let's make sure Broun doesn't (not) serve us anymore.

Yes, this is really a silly letter. The APC never said he should do 21 debates, just one (or maybe two) in the district. Is that too much to ask? Obviously, Broun accepting Saxon's challenge would have been neat politics, but unrealistic.

Plus, in case Echols forgets, Congress recesses in a few weeks specifically to allow congressmen to campaign.

Thanks.

A recent Bible study also pointed me to Psalm 72, which had this passage I liked ...

For he will deliver the needy who cry out, the afflicted who have no one to help. He will take pity on the weak and the needy and save the needy from death.He will rescue them from oppression and violence, for precious is their blood in his sight.
