Cagle Goes Medieval on Ralph Reed

I know I posted about the Ralph Reed primary in Georgia just last Friday, but with the election just eight days ahead, I will continue to blog about it as events warrant. And the latest news is that Ralph’s primary opponent for the Lite Governor gig, state senator Casey Cagle, has launched a TV ad that gets pretty down ‘n’ dirty, using phrases like “lying about his record,” and “selling out our conservative values,” and “lying about Casey Cagle.” The ad also gets heavily into the forced abortion and forced prostitution allegations about that libertarian paradise, the Northern Mariana Islands, which Reed promoted at the behest of his buddies Jack Abramoff and Grover Norquist.The Atlanta Journal-Constitution’s Jim Galloway and Tom Baxter understated the situaton by saying: “In the Republican race for lieutenant governor, Casey Cagle has crossed into Point of No Return Land. There’s no shaking hands and wishing best of luck after a TV ad like this.”The same Galloway/Baxter column provides a link to a robo-call for Ralph Reed by none other than Zell Miller, who talks about how long he’s known Ralph, five or six Miller political personalities ago.
