Smart. Sharp. Funny. Fearless.

If you enjoy circus-like GOP primaries, Georgia’s Republican U.S. Senate primary is your big top this year.

Rep. Phil Gingrey, former Georgia secretary of state Karen Handel, businessman David Perdue and Rep. Jack Kingston all have potential to be this year’s breakout Todd Akin. Kingston already said that he favored child labor for poor kids, then clarified that he thought it would be good for rich kids, too.

But there may be no candidate in America more likely to say something to offend people than Rep. Paul Broun, who was elected in 2012 without any Democratic opponent. However, a local libertarian radio host did try to wage a campaign to get voters to write in “Charles Darwin” rather than voting for the congressman who called evolution a “lie from the pit of hell.”

Broun released a new campaign ad on Wednesday that shows him weighing in on two of the biggest issues of the day — immigration reform and the debt ceiling. He only speaks one word. But the congressman knows his party’s base well, as it is the GOP’s favorite word in the era of Obama.

    To the politician from the pit of hell: Cynic. Charlatan. Chump. Cretin.

    People like this man! No wonder nothing is done in Washington. Since when crazy people ever done anything concrete to others. Their approval rating is 13% if anyone has forgotten it. May be this 13% approval comes from their families and relatives.

    Crackers should be declared illegal.

      NO! I like Ritz. And banning matzoh would get you into trouble with the First Amendment.

    How could the DNC not put up someone to run against this idiot? The DNC should be ashamed of itself.

    • Allan Richardson

      Nobody on the state level had a big enough donor base for a futile campaign (remember this district is so red that even Charles Darwin lost; and most of his supporters in this district are on the campus of the University of Georgia).

    The sad thing is he most likely thought that it was clever.

    I must say that I think that this is the best political ad for a Republican that I have seen in years. It clearly demonstrates that the gentleman has a complete grasp of what is required of a Republican Congressman, at least when there is a Democratic President, and demonstrates his ability to clearly meet that requirement. After all, today’s Republican or any two year old only needs a one word vocabulary.

    Broun, not unlike most of the Republicans in Georgia, makes Honey Boo Boo ashamed of her state when he speaks.
