I'm glad I don't live in Georgia

Sure, because of the drought and the never-ending bullshit over the confederate battle flag
and all. But also because when faced with a public crisis, the governor decides the best use of his time is to fucking pray for rain.

Look, your beliefs are all well and good, Sonny Perdue, but while you're on the clock, let's focus on some more tangible solutions, m'kay? You can hit the knees and pray for rain at night. You're dealing with some serious shit here, not the 1948 Braves. I'm sure you fancy yourself th Moses of Fulton County, but even he banged on a couple rocks.

Maybe you could ask the local bottling concern to cool it on the Cherry Coke Zero for a bit. Or at least crank out some more fucking Dasani. You could even try to get some conservation laws cooking. Legislature's right across the street, and they have to drink, too. But no, you're going to pray for rain instead. That's just super.

If I lived in Atlanta, I'd be looking to move somewhere more sane. Like Arkansas. Or Yangon.

Ahh - the Bible Belt.

Can't live with them, can't take their electoral votes away.

Sherman had it right.

Yep. Gen Sherman's on thAT short list of Top Three Baddest-Ass Ohioans, along with John Glenn and Charles Woodson.

Drop John Glenn and add Glenn Edward Schembechler. My personal favorite Ohioan. His badass credentials need no explanation here.

Leaving aside the whole Schembechler thing, I think you may be forgetting someone for your list of badass Ohioans...

To quote the Onion: "Holy Shit, Man Walks on Fucking Moon!"

Coudn't agree more. I barely recognize the Georgia of the post-Rose Revolution era. How I long for the days of The Silver Fox, fearlessly harboring murderous Chechen guerillas and surrounding himself with a powerful cabal of profiteers. Down with Mishy Saakashvili!

Yeah, I prevaricated there, and I totally should have added them. Make it top 5 (no ranking). Neil Armstrong and Glenn Edward Schembechler.

If this were a Paraguay-centric blog, Rutherford Birchard Hayes would also make the cut. But it's not, so he remains Fremont's second-favorite son, behind Chaz Woodson.

And J., that's true, but even Saakashvili wouldn't pull this shit.
