The sixth District is the middle of the state. It starts a little north of Montgomery and runs to above Birmingham, encompassing much of Jefferson County (where Birmingham is, but not Birmingham itself), as well as Bibb, Blount, Chilton, Coosa, and Shelby counties. It's conservative. No Democrat has received more than 30% of the vote since 1993, when current Congressman Spencer Bachus (a Republican who's retiring) unseated Democrat Ben Erdreich.
Republicans running include:
- Scott Beason, Alabama State Senator
- Paul DeMarco, Representative in the Alabama State House
- Chad Mathis, a surgeon
- Gary Palmer, Chief Development Officer of the Alabama Policy Institute
- Robert Shattuck, blogger
- Tom Vigneulle, a business owner and cattle farmer
- Will Brooke, executive at Harbert Management Corporation
I can't find any Democrats running, so whoever wins the Republican primary will likely be the next Representative for that district.
Oh, yeah. Will Brooke's video. Have you seen it?
Now, is Will Brooke the man needed in Washington? Maybe. It's not my district -- heck, it's not even my state -- so I don't have a vote in that race (unless I voted Democrat, then I could vote early, often, and everywhere).
I hope my friends in Alabama make a good decision. And, I hope that whoever is elected to Congress this fall will indeed take down Obamacare.
He needs something that will blow their heads clean off, not just penetrate a little bit of paper. I'd start with a tank.ReplyDelete
Democrat spin on the ad:ReplyDelete
"Obamcare - It's Bulletproof"
Damn, dude, I got a completely different read off of that headline!ReplyDelete
I was seein' spoons and needles, like that scene in Pulp Fiction with my main Caucasian, Travolta, getting serious with his "works". Know what I'm sayin' ? Like Man With The Golden Arm, dig?
Figurin' how you palefaces were gonna feature cookin' up that healthcare and jackin' it into a vein. Didn't feature gunfire playin' into it.
Urban vs. suburban, huh?
1) you can't drive a truck with a stack of papers like that without them blowing all over the place before you get to your destinationReplyDelete
2) no .50??? What kind of Congresscritter doesn't break out the .50??
i agree. i was expecting the Barrett .50 or, better yet, the Barrett 25 mm.

No shotgun? Then again there's always "kill it with fire."ReplyDelete
His shredder needs some work too (or it was suffering from dramatic license).
Obamacare - finally good for something! (a bullet stop)ReplyDelete
