Bill Shipp's cheap, correct shot

Speaking of shots, it'd be like shooting fish in a barrel to take Mark Taylor to task for running such a wanktackular Goobernatorial campaign, but Bill's on the case.

And why not; the Big Guy had it coming, as do the delusional head cases mismanaging what's left of Georgia's Democratic party. Problem with the piece is, it's kinda all over the place, and at this relatively late date it might've behooved Bill to have focused somewhere and run with it. There's a kernel of a great idea in the last line of this graf (emphasis mine):

The Taylor bunch also fixated late in the campaign on Perdue’s questionable but complicated real estate deals and never pinned down the incumbent on his specific plans for the state. Party discipline also disappeared, if it ever existed. After her defeat in the Democratic primary, Cathy Cox seemed to take orders from Republican strategists. Former Gov. Zell Miller, still flying the Democratic banner, ran all over Georgia and Pennsylvania campaigning for Perdue and Sen. Rick Santorum, R-Pa. Santorum lost. No Democrat in Georgia bothered to call out the renegade Miller.
That's worth a new column, Bill.
