the nicest guy in tv v. the biggest dumbass in georgia politics

Word is that Ch2 sent their white-haired attack dog, the famously mild-mannered Jeff Dore after the Speaker Richardson divorce story on thursday’s 5pm news.  When the two encountered each other in the hallway of the LOB– a brief physical confrontation ensued.  Among whom, and to what degree, depends on who you ask.  Another blog, the right-leaning Peach Pundit, has numerous Richardson apologists insisting that the WSB photog was the aggressor.  And apparently the video evidence ain’t good enough to paint Richardson a villain.  Which is unfortunate.  The last thing needed here is an unwitting media dust-up that gives Richardson sympathy points.  With his top-secret divorce, his heavy-handed handling of his leadership post and his plain silly not-so-GREAT tax plan, Richardson is becoming the Republicans version of Cynthia McKinney— looney and embarrassing.   At least Cynthia left town.  Until House members revolt next year– as they surely will do– we’re stuck with this guy at the podium.If I had any readership, I’d actually call Jeff and ask him what happened. Perhaps I will anyway.
