The Political Vine is the home of political news, satire, rants, and rumors.

How many judicial appointees does it take to screw-up Georgia?

PV, Monday, November 13th, 2017

Rumors have it that one of the scumbags involved in the 2014 Pumpkin Gate saga is scheduled to appear this Wednesday in front of the Judicial Nominating Commission (“JNC”) to apply for a Superior Court Judge vacancy.

Myers-Briggs & Ron Paul Supporters

Bill Simon, Friday, April 13th, 2012

We are too […]
