Quote of the Day: the Brad Coker edition

"Immigration is a sideshow, gay marriage is a sideshow, abortion is a sideshow. You want to get to the bulk of voters, you need to talk to them about pocketbook issues."

-Brad Coker, managing director of Mason-Dixon Polling & Research, discussing the results of a recent Georgia poll that strongly suggests that jobs and the economy are the top issues in the 2010 campaign.

In other words, the anti-gay, pro-life, let's-keep-Jose-from-coming-across-the-border and repeal ObamaCare rhetoric that has permeated the Republican primary campaign is a one-way ticket to Loserville this November.

If the Georgia GOP want to maintain their hold on the Governor's Mansion, they must talk about putting the state back to work.
