I couldn't vote here because I'm not legally a Georgia resident, but I was flipping through channels and ended up totally fascinated by the election coverage, just like in 2000.
Barr's manners were nicer than I expected, but McKinney was a brat. The reporters seemed to want to cast her concession speech as "eloquent," but I thought it was just bratty.
So in the interest of public information... Kellinator Translates Political Speak!
A Linder supporter: "The public is saying they like John Linder's quiet dignity."
What he really means: "Bob Barr's a fucking lunatic."
Denise Majette: "I will strive to represent all my constituents."
What she really means: "My dad's not a raving anti-Semitic nut."
Cynthia McKinney: "I have not lost my dignity..."
What she really means: "...because you can't lose what you never had."
A Republican candidate defeated by Saxby Chambliss: "We'll support him."
What he really means: "I hate that sonovabitch, but I hate Democrats more."
One reporter to another: "You were in the room with Cynthia McKinney. What was the scene?"
What he really means: "Did she throw a temper tantrum?"
