I hate to gloat but.....

all my predictions in the Alabama run-off proved correct last night when the results came in. The closest race was the county commission chairmans in Cullman County where 71 year old incumbent Wiley Kitchens was defeated by just 46 votes by political newcomer James Graves in the GOP primary. Mr Graves now moves on to face former County Chairman Pete Tucker(D) in the fall election. But Mr Tucker isnt exacatly a top tier candidate, he ran two years ago for another commission seat and was defeated. Wayne Parker won the run off for the open congressional seat in north alabama by a whopping 58 points. Why Cheryl Guthrie didnt drop out last month is beyond me. But I will give her this much, it must be nice to be so rich that you can totally waste a few hundred thousand on idiotic TV ads featuring monkeys. Mr Parker now moves on to face State Senator Parker Griffith(D) in the fall election.
