I’m voting for the Real Deal. I don’t think Karen Handel has the cojones to beat Roy Barnes, and I sure don’t want him back as Governor.
Love Gov Palin, but Handel is not right for governor. She donated to planned parenthood and gay/lesbian groups (including one that did outreach to kids as young as 13) and is whiny/defensive (terrible at debating). I believe it will be a really, really bad idea to elect her. I do not think she is the mama grizzly Palin thought she was.
Save your “best electable candidate” for the liberal states, GA can elect a solid conservative on these issues. And we need conservative states to do this to counter balance the RINOS from liberal states.
I wrote a lengthy post about my conclusions here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-news/2566154/posts .
Deal has the experience and fighting spirit we need, not only for Barnes, for Obama. He wasn’t my first choice, but of the two he is who we need, IMO.
