Marshall v. Chambliss?

Sometimes, in politics, location is everything. Moultrie, Georgia is at the tip of Jim Marshall's congressional district. Today, Marshall, addressing PeachCare, is quoted heavily in the Moultrie Observer. Marshall makes the point that federal funds are on the way, but Georgia needs to step up and bridge the timing gap. Why is this interesting? Because of speculation that Marshall may run for Senate, against Saxby Chambliss, who is from Moultire. Then again, sometimes location means nothing. We'll see.

By the way, I find it fascinating that on Saxby's web page, the fact that he is a Republican is, uh, hardly mentioned. It is not in the banner. It is not mentioned directly in his bio. In fact, his bio makes a point that he is following in the footsteps of Nunn and Russell. He must've read the Gallup poll.

Maybe Saxby's planning to run on some sort of new, independent ticket that caters solely to big money special interest groups. Apparently, he's never met one he didn't like. He enjoys the dubious distinction of accepting more invitations from special interest groups than ANYONE ELSE in the entire Congress.

After a 37-year absence, it is stunningly sad to return and encounter the pathetic state of the Democratic party in Georgia.
