Ive joined twitter and other thoughts
Ive finally joined twitter after much urging. You can find me at www.twitter.com/mrturnbow and start the process of following me. In political news this week. There was a recount in the GOP primary for Governor of Alabama and Robert Bentley narrowly edged out Tim James to secure a spot in next months runoff against Bradley Bryne. But Mr Bentley may have already sunk his chances in that race before it really even started. He made a very strange decision to fire his campaign staff last week. Thats something you usually don't do just days after those same people helped you pull off one of the biggest upsets in modern times in Alabama. In Cullman County, Al there is a runoff between local tea party favorite Patricia McGriff and dentist Dr Paul Bussman to see who will take on State Senate Majority Leader Zebulon Little in November. The word is that Dr Bussman has the edge right now but its close enought that the tea party could push Mrs McGriff over the top with a late surge on the ground. All is still relatively quiet in southwest Tennessee political wise from what I hear. Im sure itll pick up soon. I miss the good old days when rumors would fly every July right before an election that the FBI was storming the Hardin County jail and courthouse. Ahh the good old days. Hehe. Well thats it for now folks. Im about fried politically and personally speaking from all the junk Ive been having to do recently but hey when you make twice what teachers and police do then I cant really complain too much.
