A Message To Ric Mayfield from Tucker Cagle: “Who’s Your Daddy Now?”

by Bill Simon

Okay…now the tit-for-tat letter battle this week between the Casey Cagle and Ralph Reed campaigns has gotten EXTREMELY interesting.

To recap, first there was a letter authored by Casey Cagle printed last week in the Savannah Morning News.

Then the Reed campaign fired-back with a letter of their own last Monday.

Then, Senator Chip Pearson, a Cagle supporter, fired a letter back to Ralph demanding that Ralph stop dissing the developer community and accusing Cagle of accepting money from them. In his letter, Pearson pointed-out the over $400,000 in campaign contributions that Ralph had received from the developer and real estate-related community.

THEN, Reed’s campaign treasurer, Ric Mayfield, fired-off a rebuttal letter to Pearson and the Cagle campaign.

NOW, Casey’s dog has joined the fray with this recently well-thought out and pawed-out rebuttal letter to Mayfield’s letter:

March 23, 2006

Ric Mayfield
Reed for Lt. Governor

Dear Ric,

My name is Tucker. I don’t like it when you make up stories about Casey Cagle. Casey is my owner. He feeds me, and walks me, and scratches that spot I can’t reach behind my ears. Casey and his family are my best friends.

When you say Casey is dishonest, I know that you know it isn’t true and you’re just carrying Ralph’s water for him. But I still don’t appreciate it. It’s wrong to say bad things that aren’t true about good people, and you know it. C’mon, Ric, I’m just a dog and I know that.

I have never bitten anyone, but I’ve got to say … if you and Ralph and his buddy Jack ever came to visit, I just might have to try it out. You have been a bad human, Ric. Go to your kennel!


Tucker Cagle

P.S. I don’t want to go to Ralph Reed’s house. Everyone who goes near him gets subpoenaed, and I don’t have enough doggie biscuits to pay for a lawyer (and I sure don’t want to go to the pound, even if it is a minimum security country club pound!).

    This is only the pre-game show.

    When Raphine brings out the big guns things will get really nasty. Maybe he will claim that Sen. Cagle has illegitimate children next. Who knows!

    Many Rep. will be turned off by this race and probably won’t turn out in the general election.

  2. Maurice Says:

    I am just amazed at some of the good people who are duped by his rhetoric. Ralph used to have a tape in the CC training library called Effective Rhetoric.

    I don’t think I have ever had so much disgust in a politican. And for years I supported him…

    Casey Cagle is now taking the lead on Property Rights…


    Atlanta, GA — Senator and Lt. Governor Candidate Casey Cagle took to the Senate floor today to continue leading the fight for passage of “The Landowner’s Bill of Rights and Private Property Protection Act.” Cagle also succeeded in winning support from the Senate to pass additional provisions he introduced strengthening the bill.

    This legislation — a top priority of the Republican Senate majority — represents one of the strongest statutes restricting the use of eminent domain and protecting the rights of private property owners in the entire nation. The Senate also authorized a Constitutional Amendment which would further limit the use of eminent domain if approved by the voters.

    Among other things, the new law would:

    Ban the use of eminent domain for economic development purposes.
    Prevent local governments from seizing private property without an open vote by the top governing authority.
    Limit government seizure of blighted property to only those cases where an immediate threat to public safety is posed.
    Give citizens much greater opportunity to be made aware of and voice their opinions on exercise of eminent domain.
    Improve the ability of owners to get a fair price for their property.

    “The U.S. Supreme Court may have fired the first shot in this battle with its disastrous decision in the Kelo case, but today’s vote by our Republican Senate majority ensures it won’t be the last. This legislation puts Georgia at the forefront of the entire country in protecting the rights of property owners. Strong private property rights are the core bedrock of our economic system, and we cannot do too much to protect them,” said Cagle.

    Cagle also pledged to continue fighting to protect property rights, saying “As long as government has the power to exercise eminent domain, we need to continue working to ensure that power remains limited and property owners have a fair voice in the process. This is yet another step in what has been a long battle. We must remain vigilant in the future, and ratifying the Constitutional Amendment we also passed today is absolutely essential to that goal.”

Today's Deep Thought

If I was the head of a country that lost a war, and I had to sign a peace treaty, just as I was signing, I'd glance over the treaty and then suddenly act surprised. 'Wait a minute! I thought we won!'
