How about also-ran trash talking liberal/leftist/progressive yip-yip lap dogs.

In State of the Union, Obama aims to influence 2016 debate

The democrat plan has been clear from the first days after the midterm scalding.
They will stall and beat the class warfare drum for the next two years. Their hope is that the 2016 presidential election (rather than a midterm) will dredge up their base as it did in 2008 & 2012. Promising bread and circuses and a chicken in every pot floods the polls with the uninformed and disconnected. Unfortunately it works.

Academy president responds to Oscar firestorm

Hollywood is comprised of big family businesses and family businesses would rather hire their own before outsiders.

Crowdfunding to cover UGA hacker's legal fees

We should steal their OL coach, then we could call it even.

Would like to see Georgia double it's effort to recruit to best offensive (and defensive) linemen available.

NY police union leader well known for his bite

deBlasio = Dinkins. All the progress NYC has made in the last 20 years with organization and safety will be reversed with one liberal administration. Liberals should never lead anything except charities.

Giveth and taketh away: Georgia Tech hands Georgia 30-24 overtime loss

Hope I wasn't the only viewer to see that Tech had the superior OL. It always, always, always comes down to the OL and the DL. How does GT out recruit us in those two areas? Maybe it's coaching. The Tech OL coach is one valuable dude.

Athens Downtown Development Authority managing parking, paying rental subsidies outside its jurisdiction

Would bet there aren't a handful of property owners in the ADDA business district who know that a portion of their property tax that goes to the ADDA is used to subsidize rents. I for one would be interested in the success rate of these tech startups. Also, how long are the leases for the individual office spaces? If the startup fails is Four Athens responsible for the rent on the vacated space which is subsidized by the ADDA. Is there a waiting list to fill these spaces?

Dupuy: Pledge of Allegiance isn't America's best tradition

If this article was put to paper it's proper place would be the round file. It doesn't deserve the recycle container.

John Barrow plans return to Athens after congressional loss

Always liked John Barrow and made it a point to follow his career. He probably remained a Democrat out of loyalty which is honorable IMHO.

Election proves Americans have no clue about solving problems

"Fear of information and thinking". Now that's really clever.

Election proves Americans have no clue about solving problems

Bitter liberals squealing when they don't get their way. As she pounds the keys on her laptop one can imagine the network of re-education camps she has planned for the country, everywhere but the northeast and left coast of course.

GOP seizes on anger, demographics for success

Leave it to the democrats, and a complicit press, to complain that the massacre of the 2014 midterms happened because of low voter turnout. It's the presidential elections that really count, they say. The last two presidential elections were billed as block parties by the liberals where phones, food stamps, birth control, disability, and open ended unemployment benefits would be had by all who voted. The midterm elections are the real deal, where the educated and involved show up to clean out the coat tail hanging pretenders from the two houses, and FYI it works both ways. This time it worked perfectly.

GOP surge: Republicans seize control of Senate

The stark reality of last six years is that the American electorate twice swallowed hook line and sinker a super hyped late night golf gimmick. Add to that a completely unlikeable senate majority leader with a horrible personality, a former speaker left coast embarrassment, and a DNC leader that no makeover of any proportion could make likeable (and that's just to name a few), and we had the ingredients for the major defeat the progressives suffered last night. Better late than never.

Nunn wants to use government to solve problems

Sorry Michelle we don't need another community organizer type in government at the national level. If you think you had success running charities, stick with that. You would make a poor senator with those qualifications but a functional non-profit head.

Green back in UGA secondary, RB Marshall may not play against Florida

The obvious plan which benefits GA going forward is to hold out Marshall until next year when he will be fully healed and we start the season with him, Chubb, Michel, and Douglas platooning at running back.

Blog: Revamping panhandling law not the answer, officials say

ACC should buck up and make the Downtown Athens business district a panhandler free zone. If they can fight an apartment owner for years at a cost of thousands to confiscate a few parking spots, they can go to bat against Legal Aid and the ACLU to rid our downtown of this festering decades old problem which only gets worse. The remedies proposed by this committee are practically useless. "Focus on broader issues of community education and coordination" is the sound of a can being kicked down the road.

Purcell: Criticism of Obama isn't too little, it's too late

Let's hope there will never be another who is so completely unqualified. The American electorate is to blame for this one, and the multi million dollar democrat propaganda machine that easily sways weak minds.

    Blog: Watching movies by myself

    Summary:  I'm not saying it's lonely to be a movie critic, but we often find ourselves seated alone in an empty theatre when we're watching new stuff. I know people who say they won't go see anything unless they have at least one other person to go with, but I've always enjoyed having the place to myself.

    No cartoons on racism

    As you might imagine, the vast majority of the editorial cartoons available these days for publication through the syndicate which supplies cartoons to the Athens Banner-Herald/OnlineAthens are addressing the situation in Ferguson, Mo., where the fatal shooting of a black teen by a white police officer has touched off a number of demonstrations -- some peaceful, but many not at all peaceful, with tear gas fired by police officers and gunshots fired by some protester. read more
