If Hillary wins Georgia, I'll eat my neighbor's Confederate flag*

It's going to take a lotta lotta work to win Georgia. Clinton will need huge Dem turnout in non-suburban Atlanta (mainly Fulton, DeKalb, and Clayton counties), as well as Athens, Savannah, and the scattered "blue dots" around the state. There is a lot of work to be done registering likely Democratic voters, and of course overcoming the standard vote suppression tactics and the potential problems with electronic voting machines (/tinfoilhat). AND we're going to need a lot of the suburban "Security Moms" and a good chunk of the few moderate Republicans left in this state to cast a vote for sanity this time around.

Don't forget, a somewhat facetious overview of large-ish cities in the U.S. rated Atlanta America's most redneck city. (But Atlanta is also regarded as a "Black Mecca." The problem is the rest of the state.

Ellijay, GA

Gainesville, GA

I'm not saying it can't be done, but I'm saying we should certainly not count Georgia in the Win column just yet.

By the way, last time I checked, it's still August.

* Disclaimer: I don't actually have a neighbor with a Confederate flag any more -- fortunately those assholes moved out of the neighborhood a few years back.
