U.S. Rep. Doug Collins, R-Gainesville, yesterday took part in an hearing held by the U.S. House of Representatives Committee on the Judiciary to discuss impeachment of President Barack Obama. "I'm often asked this," he said. "You got to go up there, and you just impeach him."
Wow, it's like Bill Clinton's presidency is returning. In blackface.
Triangulation, excessive capitulation to conservatives on regulation, legislation, and Judicial picks for federal court...and now the impeachment.
Dang, am I the only one who notices this situation? Please someone tell me I am not.
And when will people learn to vote in huge numbers for midterm elections?
At least the ones who don't have a penchant for Dixiecratic insanity, anyways...
"Each charge of possessing a firearm while a felon carries a maximum sentence of 10 years in prison and up to a $250,000 fine."
i think there should be a MINIMUM sentence for illegal firearms possession, rather than a max.
something like 5 years for possession by a felon, and 10 years for use in a crime.
make room in the jails by making marijuana possession legal up to a few ounces, and a fine-able offense only for up to several pounds. legality over a few pounds could be voted on state to state.
kasim reed, rising national democratic star, is so fetch.

Please remember to vote in the run-off elections for the Atlanta School Board today. The polls are open until 8PM.
Lots of tweets for McDaniel! Not in alpha order! LOL! He has not called Mary Norwood yet? He is a Brat! Mayor Reed the BRAT!
The mayor has actually had a pretty bad year. Lost his pick for DPG Chair and thus the control of the democratic political establishment. Lost the Braves Stadium. Lost his allies Lamar Willis and Reuben McDaniel. Lost the respect of a lot of intown liberals with his heavy hand in the municipal elections and the Kock money. His shine is looking a little tarnished at the moment.
And, the word around town is that he has yet to call any of the people who defeated any of his supported candidates. What a brat.
Forgot to say good work helping get it removed from the Capitol, Joeff. Thank you.
Too Bad the one who LOST BIG was the Chair & A Big Dog Loser! HA! HA! Can't buy elections Mayor!
I no have zero like for Reed and his local "non reporter" reporter cronies!
ATTN: racist slack-jawed yokels,
Your statue was moved across the street into Talmadge Plaza, named for the son of another notoriously racist piece of shit. Don't know what y'all are so pissed about. It's still there for whenever you want to stage another 5 or 6 person rally that nobody cares about.
"...the on-going campaign in the USA against the Southern people as an ethnic/cultural group."
Oh, do tell, Palmetto Patriot! I bet you have some pamphlets on the topic for us, or perhaps some self-produced YouTube videos.
Please, go on - also, since I'm unfamiliar with the Southern "ethnicity", please define "Southern people" for us. I have faith the your definition will conveniently exclude a large, melanin-enhanced percentage of the population that has been present in the South for, oh, a few hundred years or so...
intowner2, No big post yesterday, but we did include a link in First Slice reminding folks to return to the polls.
JSVH, Thanks for the heads up. We've altered the post with updated election results.
^ this guy sounds like the average SEC football fan to me.
"Instead, the Midtown-to-Cumberland corridor is likely to get a dedicated line of bus rapid transit — basically, a faster express bus service that rides on dedicated road lanes."
OK. So how are these"dedicated lanes" going to appear in the cluster-fuck that already is I-75? Are you going to take away the HOV lane? Take away another lane of traffic creating even worse gridlock? What a stupid fucking short-sighted comment.
Unlike a substitute teacher, Briscoe Brown would actually remember your name, where you sit, how you did on the last test, and what you need to do to improve your mastery of the subject and not just your grade.
I appreciate that CL ran nothing yesterday about the run-off to remind people to go vote.
It will be interesting to see what happens with Ruben McDaniel's ethics complaint (including inviting in Reed staffers to high level meetings) and his advocacy of a sweet land deal for his daughter's private school now that his public school nemesis has been elected.
Financial Deconstruction is the only place I know of that covered anything regarding the ethics complaint.
Doug Collins has done NOTHING about jobs, infrastructure, health care, education immigration or any of the other issues that matter to the VAST majority of the American people... but he will certainly waste his time chasing this stupid folly. I wonder how idiots like this get elected, but then... Gainesville... so ya know.
something about cynthia briscoe brown reminds me of those substitute teachers who would scare the hell out of me as a student.
@ Cassie, I'd be surprised to learn some conservatives were into reading anything.
Looks like the percentages in the article for the COA BOE At-large seats differ from Fulton's numbers. For example, Fulton has Cynthia Briscoe Brown winning with numbers in the mid-60% range, not ~72%.
Is the Doug Collins quote missing something in the middle, or does he not understand the difference between a question and a statement?
Apparently it wasn't just tweets that Kasim Reed offered. It seems that there was also $25,000 of 'walking around money' from a certain PAC that got distributed to voters yesterday....and the impressive thing is, it's not illegal:
"...As noted in the definition, there is nothing illegal about the practice, but it is important that the voters know that it is underway and that it could have a significant impact on today’s runoff election. This practice has been used in prior Atlanta elections and could easily have been the determining factor in a mayoral election that was decided by less than 800 votes Citywide.
Based on the confidential source, the “street” money will likely be used to get out the vote in support of candidates backed by Mayor Reed’s Super PAC which has raised over $200 thousand over the last 45 days. Mayor Reed has shown a strong interest in gaining a greater level of influence and control over the Atlanta Public School Board."
