The World’s Youngest Blogger Waves To Obi’s Sister

by The World’s Youngest Blogger Thanks, Obi’s Sister! This blanket is peachy, and I hope to thank you in person sometime, perhaps CPAC12.

VIDEO: Gingrich Fatigue?

It seems that Newt Gingrich’s 2012 presidential campaign isn’t generating much excitement down home in Georgia: This week Newt Gingrich made news by opening a campaign headquarters in a Buckhead office building — with word that he expected to announce his presidential candidacy in the coming week. The response has been underwhelming. On Peach Pundit, […]

Obi’s Sister: Her Pi Are Square

Not that there’s anything wrong with that, OK? Anyway, Ginny at Obi’s Sister celebrates her five-year bloggiversary by getting her geek on — today is “Pi Day” (3-14, get it?) and so she’s all geometric and stuff.

Our longtime blog buddy is now a front-page contributor to Peach Pundit, the premier Georgia politics blog. She celebrates by throwing out the five-dollar word “praxeum” (an inside joke for Star Wars geeks, it seems) because she’s now the William F. Buckley Jr. of Georgia bloggers or something. Congratulations, Ginny!

‘Just One Tweet’: Conservative New Media Get Results in Georgia 4th District Story

Readers may remember the headline here Wednesday morning: Obama-Endorsed Rep. Hank Johnson to Participate in Segregated Forum? It was Dan Riehl who tipped me to that story, which originated with a Facebook post from Republican congressional candidate Liz Carter, who had been excluded from an Atlanta political event, the Newsmakers Live forum. Da Tech Guy jumped on the story […]
