Mike Wiggins: Looking More and More Like The Scumbag He First Appeared To Be…

Bill Simon, Tuesday, October 31st, 2006

Interesting little article in today’s Political Insider about the facts regarding Mike Wiggins and his mistreatment of his mother and sister. Looks like to me that Wiggins is a pathological liar.

Take THAT, Jim Martin!

Rumors have it that 27 Demmies, both currently in office and out of office, have come out so strongly in support of Casey Cagle for Lt. Governor that they actually have a formal committee called Democrats for Cagle. Following are the current and former Democratic elected officials who are serving as statewide co-chairs of the […]

Mike Wiggins Can Deny All He Wants, But…

Bill Simon, Friday, October 20th, 2006

The fact is, apparently Liz Young knew enough about him to know that he WOULD have liked the e-mailed comment about Judge Carol Hunstein being a “one-legged Jewish lady from DeKalb County”. I’ve met Mike Wiggins. I’m not impressed. He is running for a judgeship when he has had ZERO experience practicing law under the […]

People Who Deserve To Get The Living Sh** Beaten Out Of Them On A Weekly Basis..

Bill Simon, Monday, October 9th, 2006

These are the people who deserve a bruising beating, once a week, for the length of time they serve in jail OR instead of killing them on Death Row, as the case may be: Saddam Hussein: Saddam will probably be hanged for his crimes. Frankly, that’s just too damned soft of a punishment for me. […]

Ralph Reed & Jack Abramoff: Back Together Again…In A Documentary On Their Deceit And Treatment Of Others

Bill Simon, Thursday, October 5th, 2006

This was a great thing to watch last night. I usually do not like the standard Bill Moyers‘ pieces, but he nailed the saga of Jack Abramoff, Grover Norquist, and Ralph Reed perfectly in this latest documentary on their whole involvement in ripping-off Indian tribes and faking out their fellow Christian conservatives. Capitol Crimes The […]

But, What Will Randy Evans Do If Denny Resigns?

Bill Simon, Monday, October 2nd, 2006

The conservative newspaper in D.C., The Washington Times, is now calling on Speaker Hastert to resign from his position because he now acknowledges that he knew, at minimum, about the e-mails between Foley and a teen Page in late 2005. (Hat Tip to Bull Moose over at Peach Pundit for the story link.) I think […]

Is Georgia State Rep. Larry O’ Neal A Liar?

Bill Simon, Sunday, October 1st, 2006

Really. That’s my question. I just want to know. BECAUSE, according to this article written by AJC Reporter James Salzer last Saturday, O’Neal introduced the bill in the well of the House: “Rep. Larry O’Neal stepped to the podium and asked colleagues to pass a seemingly mundane tax bill requested by the state Department of […]
