My, How Things Change

By Steven Taylor @ 2:06 pm

This is somewhat surprising (tho’ not radically so, I guess). It is funny that it wasn’t that long ago that the partisan shoe was on the other foot in Georgia: Dems Can’t Find Candidate for Ga. Senate

Democratic Sen. Zell Miller of Georgia is retiring, and the party’s pool of 2004 candidates looks emptier than the vegetable drawer in a frat-house refrigerator. (who writes this stuff? -ed.)

The potential candidates include two men in their 70s who have not even committed themselves to the race; a political neophyte whose main asset is her last name; a freshman congressman unknown outside of his district; and a state legislator famous only for calling the governor a racist and then running off in tears.

Of course, given the way Zell votes, it may really not represent much of a change.

  1. Steven’s not done his preparation.

    The fact is when Miller was appointed to the Senate following the death of Paul Coverdell-Miller kept almost all of Coverdell’s staff, including Coverdell’s chief of staff and policy advisors. And Miller kept that staff after he won election in 98.

    It’s not inaccurate to say that’s been a Repug Senate seat for sometime.

  2. The staff doesn’t vote, however.

    zero points.

  3. Further, the point was about the competitiveness of Senate elections in Georgia.

    And as long as Miller has had a (D) by his name, it has been a Democratic seat. The best test of which was that when Jeffords switched, the Dems took control. If Zell was really a Republican, that wouldn’t have been the case, would it have been?

    Of course, when I noted that given Zell’s voting record there wouldn’t be that much of a change-meaning, that the voting wouldn’t be that different.

    Forget zero points, I am taking away 10.

    I think you need to consider remedial coursework.

  4. “The staff doesn’t vote, however.”

    Just when you think Steven couldn’t come up with anything sillier than “the economy just happens"-he outdoes himself again.

    Do you believe, Steven, a Senate staff is just an apolitical group? Do you believe Orrin Hatch’s staff, for instance, could be swapped with Ted Kennedy’s staff and there would be no dissent or resignations?

    I realize, Steven, you are in the hinterlands of this nation. But most Poli Sci 101 students know better.

  5. You miss this particular point by such a large distance I am truly, truly amazed.

    You are most certainly failing the course.

    Comment by Steven — Thursday, September 4, 2003 @ 7:18 pm

  6. By your logic the way in which you count the partisanship of a Senator is by his staff? I must admit, that’s an original one.

    Comment by Steven — Thursday, September 4, 2003 @ 7:20 pm

  7. Well, since the staff runs the White House, I guess it’s not surprising that it runs the Senate. Indeed, I get confused as to whether it’s the staff or the special interests who are pulling the strings.
