David Pennington as a chrome-plated dragon-slayer 

By Jim Galloway

031314 leg common vote

A reformated school bus hauls around a borrowed statue of a knight in the name of David Pennington, GOP rival to Gov. Nathan Deal. Brant Sanderlin, bsanderlin@ajc.com

This morning, a truncated school bus bearing David Pennington campaign signs is circling the state Capitol with unusual cargo: A large chrome-plated statue of a sword-wielding knight. Specifically, we think, St. George.

If we’re not mistaken, Gov. Nathan Deal’s GOP challenger has borrowed one half of a tableau from the front yard of Morgan County tea partyer and millionaire Ray Boyd. The other half, not on the school bus, is a chrome dragon.

Here’s a question: How do you quantify knightly rental on a campaign disclosure report?

Looks more like Don Quixote and ragged mule.

I think we can see what he thinks of education with what he has done to that school bus.  He's going to need that suit of armor - I hope it stops bullets.  (Never bring a sword to a gun fight.)

I guess the message is, he can slash the school budgets just as well as deal and the rest of the knaves at the capitol.

Create an LLC, designate the Knight as the LLC, hire the bus driver (now Knight, LLC is a job creator - elevating Sir Knight's importance).  Use Citizens United decision to say the Knight, as an LLC, is exercising its 1st Amendment rights.  No disclosure necessary

@Bernie31 @notagain  Now that was a great analogy.  After all it seems that most Republicans don't have a heart.  So this is fitting.
