Safe as Houses at Tondees Tavern gives a few words of advice to the Poythress campaign:

Chill. The. Hell. Out.

Listen, you don’t need to get all completely bent out of shape every time any one not affiliated with your camp says the words ‘Georgia’ and ‘governor’ in the same sentence. I mean, Rep. DuBose Porter’s announcement was barely an hour old when you began slinging mud his way.

That’s not rapid response. That’s irrational reactions.

Excellent point. It’s not 2010 yet. This time would be better spent trying to gin up some grassroots support, maybe get some donations, hang out at the local country buffet and build some name recognition.

Just throwing a punch at everyone who jumps in the race for an election that’s a year and a half away? Not constructive.
