Saxby, be very, very aware! The conservative Republicans of Georgia have given you a second chance, not that you deserve it.

During the regular campaign and election, not once did you mention Reagan Republican principles, conservative ideals or how moderate-to-liberal your voting record was. But during the runoff, you brought those topics up many times, and brought Sarah Palin to the state to hammer those principles home.

You basically became the lesser of two evils to most of us out here. But we will wait and see how many times you actually stop the Obama machine with a filibuster, and how many times you vote against the move of this administration and Congress to move our country closer to a socialistic society.

I hope you show a copy of this letter to your voting buddy, Johnny Isaakson, as he is up next, and undoubtedly will experience the same fate.

The Georgia Republican party may want to start encouraging a true conservative candidate to run against Johnny for the nomination. Then expensive runoffs may not be necessary. (Linder, Boortz, Cain as examples.)
