Sen. David Perdue gets owned on Twitter

Again, actually. Or usually. Because David Perdue is bad at twitter, which is to be expected, since his message stinks. Sure, it’s probably some clueless staff member pumping out the swamp bilge we’ve come to expect from the junior senator from Georgia’s account. They’re often horrible, hypocritical and sycophantic to President Trump, because, after all Perdue is POTUS’s favorite senator, and you’ve got to be excruciatingly bad to earn that title. Usually Perdue’s tweets are hard ratio’d  because people really, really don’t like him and his tweets are stupid. While Sen.

Georgia women take two different paths to claim Democratic PSC nominations

Above: Selfie of victorious PSC Democrats Lindy Miller (Post 3) and Dawn Randolph (Post 5) I found this historic photo on Dawn Randolph’s Twitter page. Democrat Lindy Miller ran against two men and won with nearly 2/3 of the vote in the Georgia Public Service Commission Post 3 race. Fellow Dem Dawn Randolph faced one man and took more than 3/4 of ballots cast for Post 5. Lindy committed heavily to fundraising and ran a well-financed campaign with money for Atlanta TV ads, which do not come cheap. Dawn, who’s run for the PSC before, had a shoestring campaign, raising just a few thousand dollars. Republican Commissioners Chuck Eaton and Tricia Pridemore have campaigns financed by utility interests. Lindy and Dawn do…
