Gov Deal has been to Winder/Barrow several times lately, maybe we can finally break through and get some advancements here! Welcome back as much as you want, when asked, Gov Perdue said "where? is that in Georgia?"
Smell that in the air?

Sure hope the Dump used some extra grape smelling fog to cover that awful odor for Deal's visit. How embarassing!
He's still as corrupt as they come. I wouldn't be surprised if he received some kickback money from these businesses. Yes, I realize that's how it's usually done in politics at the state level. Remember he was declared one of the most corrupt members of congress when he was there.
