    In this ~3 minute clip, GGO Executive Director Patrick Parsons shows up to a campaign rally for a State House candidate where Gov. Deal and Speaker Ralston are appearing, and shouts questions and accusations at them as they go between their vehicles and the building. The description claims "close to 40" GGO protestors, but fewer than 10 are ever visible on camera.

    Personally I don't like that Ralston and Deal are helping a primary candidate because the incumbent Republican isn't establishment enough. But how anyone can watch this video and think that acting like this is a good way to get people to agree with you on anything is beyond me. I especially can't comprehend that someone would think shouting at someone from restraining order distance will get them to think that the shouters should be allowed to carry a loaded firearm at all times with no permit or background check.

    Patrick is a lackey and a putz.

    I have to admit I would not have answered him either. That is not the way you work politics.

    He’s not doing anything but making a fool out of himself and his supporters.

    Confrontational politics is their business model.
