News - Lobbyists brawl at Ga. State House of Representatives dinner

I saw this and had to laugh.

Apparently lobbyist Pete Stokes removed part of another lobbyist's ear with a beer bottle. I remember Georgia politics was a rough sport when I was younger, but the politicos seemed to have toned it down to simple reprisals, verbal attacks and vague slander. Seems like they've upped the ante again.

They still have a long way to go before they even rival the Three Governors of Georgia fiasco. Georgia politics haven't been as interesting since the Talmadge and Maddux days of yore. I especially miss the days when you could tell it was an election year by picking up the local newspaper and seeing the increase in stills being raided.
