Georgia Democrat Leader Ridicules Voters As "Cave People"

Take notes, folks.

Below is an example of how not to win elections:

. . .about 30 percent of [state Rep. Allen]Peake’s constituents are “almost cave people, conservative -- people who are against almost everything,” [Georgia Senate Democrat Leader Robert]Brown said. He plans to paint that group as the political “bad guys,” overcoming them with large majorities elsewhere, he said.

Insulting another state legislator's constituents as "almost cave people" is a sure fire way to alienate those voters; and if the Senator from Macon has forgotten, allow me to remind him that those conservative voters he's ridiculing represent a clear majority in this state.
