Sonny Perdue is "Fired"

Yes, that's exactly what he said, and we'll do our best to oblige him. Here's the AP story as it appears in the Macon Telegraph online edition:

Perdue kicks off re-election campaign

MARIETTA - Gov. Sonny Perdue today launched a 20 stop re-election tour and took the wraps off the first television advertisement of his campaign.

"I am fired about doing this again," Perdue said at a kickoff rally in Marietta Square in Cobb County.
The event drew more than dozen protesters waving Confederate flags and signs proclaiming Perdue a "liar." The demonstrators are angry at Perdue for failing to follow through on his pledge to allow a vote on restoring the Confederate battle symbol to Georgia's flag.

Based on this press piece, Sonny just might be right. Mr. "Rural Georgia" shuns his Middle Georgia home to launch in the Big City- running away from what got him elected last time. He's confronted by angry flaggers, again placing him at odds with what got him elected last time. And he says he's fired. Well, that exactly what Democrats have planned for him, and he's off to a great start!

Maybe the rest of the Democrats will follow a statesman; from the AJC

"In endorsing Perdue, Miller, who served as lieutenant governor and governor of Georgia for 24 years, spurned his former state Senate floor leader, Mark Taylor, now lieutenant governor, who is trying to unseat Perdue."

Zell, a statesman? compared to who? George Wallace?
