Discussion: GOP Frontrunner For GA Gov: Primary Was Contest Of ‘Who Could Be The Craziest’

1 Like

The Republican frontrunner in Georgia’s gubernatorial race is learning the hard way that it’s not good idea to spill your heart to a former rival.

No, I think it’s a great idea for all Republicans to share the secrets of their blackened little hearts to recording devices, Youtube, Facebook, Snapchat, and so on…

"Cagle thinks the electorate is a basket of deplorables who lack the intelligence and attention span to comprehend all of the high-level policy proposals that he’s saving for the General Election,”

He’s right, and people getting angry with him for admitting it and then voting for the other guy, who happens to be the worse of the two pandering white nationalists douchenozzles, will prove it.

Like Hillary Clinton, Cagle thinks the electorate is a basket of deplorables

And like Hillary Clinton, Cagle is right but Kemp is banking on Cagle also being right that the deplorables “lack the intelligence and attention span to comprehend all of the high-level policy proposals” and will reflexively vote for the man who plays to their ignorance with simple, jingoistic answers to complex questions.

@sniffit Jinx, I owe you a Coke.

“goobernatorial” is more like it.

A couple of lightweights trying to out-cojones each other to hide the fact they’re both lightweights.

What? He only says his opponents are ”radical liberals?” That’s not going to win him a Republican primary! What about all the socialists and Muslims and rapey immigrants? I’m not optimistic about his chances.

On Monday, secretly recorded audio was released of Lt. Gov Casey Cagle dismissively describing his state’s wild five-man primary as a contest between “who had the biggest gun, who had the biggest truck and who could be the craziest.”

Is that the cleaned up version?

Way too many “bigs” in there without the obvious.

“Like Hillary Clinton, Cagle thinks the electorate is a basket of deplorables who lack the intelligence and attention span to comprehend all of the high-level policy proposals that he’s saving for the General Election.”

To paraphrase the paraphrasing of Mencken: No GOPer ever lost an election by underestimating the stupidity and credulity of the Republican voter.

Believe it or not, Cagle is much worse than Kemp, who is truly horrible.

I recently saw one of Cagle’s commercials on the tee-vee. It’s true. This is a contest to out-crazy the other guy in, of all things, a governor’s race.

Today, I have another excuse to wear what has become a required election season accouterment.

Pretty honest assessment from Casey Cagle…got caught telling the truth!
I’ve lived in some part of Georgia since 1991, and there is not a lot of oxygen for the crazy flamethrowers in the Governor’s mansion. Whether it was Democrats Zell Miller/Roy Barnes or Republicans Sonny Perdue/Nathan Deal, they are an overall moderate bunch. The money people in Atlanta make sure nothing upsets the visitor/convention/entertainment industry gravy train in Georgia. What will be interesting this fall will be to see how much more this state is turning blue, and if Stacey Abrams pulls off the BIG upset win, if her new coalition comes out to vote.
