How many governors does it take to throw out the first pitch?

From Gov. Perdue's press office:
ATLANTA – Governor Sonny Perdue and Governor Charlie Crist will throw the ceremonial first pitches at the Atlanta Braves vs. Florida Marlins game at Turner Field TONIGHT June 3, 2008 at 6:55 p.m.

Two first pitches. There's a CRCT joke in there somewhere.

Or, as another reporter here noted: "I think that would only be entertaining if they were throwing them at each other."

On a completely unrelated note: We were talking in the newsroom today - if Sam Nunn does end up being Barack Obama's running mate (despite him saying, repeatedly, it's unlikely), what do Georgia Republicans (particularly the ones who used to be Democrats) do?

How full throated can they be in support of McCain if that support is seen as being anti-Sam Nunn? Particularly here in the mid-state, where former Senator Nunn is even more of a legend than he is statewide.

You've got some very interesting questions here!

I think the GOPers who were Democrats will feel betrayed or they won't listen to him.

In short it won't help Obama.

You asked "what do Georgia Republicans (particularly the ones who used to be Democrats) do?"

They switch back... and forth.
