State of Georgia now on the political stage

Columnist Dick Yarbrough brags tongue-in-cheek in the Athens Banner-Herald:

Are we Georgians privileged or what? Here we sit in the greatest state in the union with its majestic mountains, beautiful beaches, the oldest state-chartered university in the nation located in Athens, the Classic City of the South, sweet Vidalia onions and more barbecue than we can eat. And just when we thought things couldn’t get any better, we are now the epicenter of the political world.

Consider this: Two Georgians are running for president of the United States, and two are being considered for vice president.

Of course, there’s the possibility that, come 2009, a Georgian will not be occupying the White House. That doesn’t faze Yarbrough:

If we lose out on this go-round, so be it. Georgia will still be the greatest state in the union. We will still have the mountains and the beaches, the oldest state-chartered university in the land, sweet Vidalia onions and lots of good barbecue. Plus the only governor who ever gave an elephant a physical.

    This guy’s a complete ass, I read something a couple months ago he wrote about LPGA (no, not ladies’ golf!) candidates; he has no concept of non-punishment for victimless crimes.
