What looks like crazy on the left and the right on an ordinary day in Alabama Politics

 

Well, well, well.  Look what I stumbled upon on my morning Blog stroll...... those crazy republicans are trying to send crazy back to the attic.  That's right (pun intended), Radio Boy,  who enabled the birthers and crazy conspiracy theorists that have taken over the local Republican Party… is now trying to help a group called Republican Refresh defeat them at the ballot box.  Snicker
"Republican Refresh is a group Madison County residents tired of the embarrassing antics of the Madison County Republican Executive Party. We have decided to unify under the idea of getting new competent Republican Leadership on the Madison County Republican Executive Committee. For too long, us everyday Republicans have been embarrassed, ashamed, and confused by some of the current members of the Madison County Republican Executive Committee. The time for a refresh is now and starts with you voting on Tuesday June 3rd in the Republican Primary for new local leadership in the Republican Party."
RedEye's Translation:  It's time to send the crazy Aunts and Uncles who say out loud what we say behind closed doors back to the attic.  Uh...good luck with that.  Have you ever heard the saying you can't un ring a bell?

Happy Birthday Left in Alabama!
Speaking of un ringing a bell, lets mosey on over to slightly Left in Alabama, the Informed. Involved. Progressive. blog of record for Alabama politics, where Blogger Smedley  asks readers:
Talk to me.  Tell me what you like, or don't like, about the two Democratic candidates for governor this year, Parker Griffith and Kevin Bass. Parker Griffith I know is a Democrat  Republican Democrat who has served in the State Senate and the US House.  He has a history of right-wing votes. Kevin Bass I know is a former minor-league baseball player with no history of elected office.
And..
 What do you know about these two?  Why should a voter choose one over the other?  Are there reasons to vote for one of them, as opposed to against the other?
I've been giving that question a lot of thought and I'm glad Smedley posed that question, since I'm banned from Left in Alabama for life, allow me respond here in my own sandbox.  I believe in second chances, therefore I'm willing to forgive Parker Griffith for walking on the wild side, but I can't forget Parker Griffith walked on the wild side.  That said, we all make mistakes, ask former Governor George C.Wallace.  Griffith is talking the talk when it comes to jobs, health care, and education, I'm willing to give him the chance to walk the walk.  As my Daddy used to say... vote for the candidate with the smallest foot so when they kick you in your Donkey it won't hurt as bad.

Some of them need to be put in the attic but there are also a few Democrats that need to go with them like, Hank Sanders and Alvin Holmes!!!!!

Comparing State Senator Hank Sanders and State Senator Alvin Holmes to the republ icans is like comparing apples to onions. Repubs are just mad because the crazies expose republicans for who they really are: "birthers and crazy conspiracy theorists that have taken over the local Republican Party".

Yes there are some CRAZY Republicans but how can you deny that there are also CRAZY Democrats like Alvin and Hank??!! Again like many many issues you write about you are closed minded and only see and have one view point. I do not I look at both sides. I also vote for both Democrats and Republicans depending on their platform and how it affects me in my daily life.

Democrats aren't embarrassed, ashamed, and confused by State Senator Hank Sanders and State Senator Alvin Holmes. "birthers and crazy conspiracy theorists" have not taken over the Democratic Party.

DARYAL Pinchon said...

What has taken over the Democratic party then? RACISTS? That is what Holmes and Sanders are! You may be right many Democrats may not talk about it because they may be called a racist for pointing out the truth!

Holmes and Sanders are not racist, but this post is not about Holmes and Sanders, it's about the "birthers and crazy conspiracy theorists" that have taken over the republican party. Stay on topic. This is your warning.
