This guy is quite the leader. "I changed my mind personally about gay marriage because of my son. But I won't ask others to treat my son as a human being with the right to marry, because, you know, it could cost me votes with my base."
Like a politician in 1963 saying "I'm against that Bull Connor using fire hoses and dogs on those black people. But I just don't think the federal government ought to be telling Alabama what to do on race relations."

A miracle if this gets 30% of the vote. Why not day care centers? We need a levy for pre schools.

Actually, neither of these two are qualified to be Probate Judge. There are a couple attorneys trying for the appointment that are qualified but not these two.
Hopefully, the Governor's office will select someone with actual significant probate law experience and that person will be able to defeat these two who simply represent competing corrupt machines.

Don't forget to turn the little eyeholes to the front on your pointy KKK hats.

Just pointing out that maybe he should actually win a tournament before criticizing college age kids for losing. Did he also tweet that he was disgusted by his own poor effort these recent Sundays?

And they want to get a levy passed to build a new high school? Tell you what, why don't these "leaders" pay back the school district and see if that might help the levy's cause.

Seriously, he dissed players at his alma mater on Twitter with comments like "poor effort" and "disgusted"
Is this the same guy I've watched multiple times now on TV fold up like a cheap suit on the weekend when a victory was possible?
Stay classy Kokrak.

One GIANT Anthem advertisement posing as news. Hope the Vindicator at least got them to buy ad space somewhere else in the paper.

Walter's post points out the recurring dilemma in this area for voters. Every levy, whether for individuals with DD or mental health issues, or the elderly or schoolkids or our parks requires people to hold their nose to vote yes. The issue isn't the cause. Lord knows, the clients of the DD board and the hands on staff deserve financial support. No, we have to hold our nose because in so many cases we know either fools or corrupt cronies are in charge. So ... you know the clients need the help but you also know some idiot is going to line his pockets because the board set up to oversee a multimillion dollar operation is stacked with friends of the executive director or is woefully incapable of exercising proper supervision

This is why these folks hang around so long. Who do you root for in this? The politico trying to milk every last dime out of the tax payer or the young politico brown nosing so he can get on the same lifelong gravy train? Honest, truth telling people never run because they can't stand to be in the same room with this kind of bs. Makes you want to take a shower just reading this.
