Tweet I’ve almost been amused at the press Senator Johnny Isakson has received over the past week.  Almost. Some on the hard right are going ballistic over the temerity of Isakson to agree to have dinner with 11 of his colleagues from the Senate and the President.  These same folks are people who like to [...]
