Attorney Wilson Smith Interviews Saxby Chambliss

Standard

Attorney Wilson Smith, our fave trial lawyerin’ south Georgia podcaster, talks with Senator Saxby Chambliss in the days running up to the Martin/Chambliss Senate runoff on Dec. 2. Wilson seems baffled that Senator Chambliss has “no consistent philosophy of government.” But if Chambliss did, he’d then be saddled with the label of “leader” instead of par-for-the course “country club politician.” From the pre-podcast editorial:

What is amazing about Saxby (and many politicians, for that matter) is that he has no consistent philosophy of government that guides his votes. Hence, he makes fiscal conservatives angry when he votes in favor of Medicare Drug D, in favor of the farm bill and other such big expense items that garner votes from large constituencies. And yet, he will vote against healthcare for kids (SCHIP) because it is “big government.” I just don’t get it!

How Bad IS Georgia Senator Chambliss’ Golf Addiction?

Why it’s so strong and deep even W made cracks about it! From The White House, June 20, 2003:

Remarks by the President at Bush-Cheney 2004 Reception
Ritz Carlton Lodge, Reynolds Plantation
Greensboro, Georgia

6:33 P.M. EDT

THE PRESIDENT: Thank you all very much. Thanks a lot for coming out tonight. So I’m walking up on the stage, and Saxby says, if you keep it short, we might be able to get a round of golf in. (Laughter.)

Full WH memo here. Presidents-on-the-links sure do help fill campaign treasure chests, eh? And sure sells those “plantation” lots too!

Let’s put this post in the Would Have Been A Good Plantation If They’d Had Dick Cheney To Shoot ‘Em Every Day catagory. Or the Tacky-Ass Developers one.
