Republicans will vote for an openly racist loon who believes Tom Hanks ate babies and was put to death by a secret tribunal and replaced by a look-a-like rather than vote for everyone to have healthcare and equal rights.

The GOP didn't do anything when the hyper-racist loons forming the TEA party and instead folded them into the main party, helping normalize the open racism and vile behavior of a Donald Trump.

Imagine what behavior a mainstream Q anon will encourage from people with access to CIA/NSA intelligence briefings.

You don't really believe Wohl has sex with women, do you?

Here's an opportunity to paint her as the face of the Republican party. If the Democrats are wise enough to seize it.

FTA:"Whether you're signaling a belief in Q specifically we don't know, but I think you're alternatively signaling support and allegiance to the current President," said Joanne Miller, professor of political science at the University of Delaware. "You're also signaling that 'I'm an outsider, a populist, just like you and not one of the establishment.'"

I understand the theory in this prof's statement. But I think the prof is missing the point. The establishment is at the core. The core isn't about just difference. It's about destruction of judicial and regulatory power, based on the difference. QAnon as an identity, has practical goals and instrumentalist elements.

Wow, sure since Carlson the "neurosurgeon" title has lost a lot of its weight, but WOW.

Eh, it's not just in Georgia that voters are dumb enough to fall for that "I'm an outsider!" crap,

What, exactly, do they think happens to their shiny new representative the moment she gets sworn in?  They going to immediately recall her and send another outsider?

Veteran or newbie, the candidate's policies are what's important.  So, the less-stupid GOP voters know that...which means idiotic racist conspiracies are their core values now.

And not just in Georgia, apparently, given they'll welcome her with open arms in DC.

Ah, Northwest GA, Chattanooga's suburbs, hillybilly heroin heaven.  Where they can't recruit foster parents for relatively normal kids because there is a large residential facility for very disturbed children nearby, so they all get lumped together.  Where the carpet mills provided subsistence wages and discouraged kids from getting an education to maintain a steady labor pool, while fighting every effort to maintain a minimal level of cleanliness to the water table.  Where getting a job in Atlanta is considered to be an announcement of homosexuality because why else leave that cultural mecca of Chattanooga?

I was hoping it was one of the southern regions, which are currently becoming Covid 19 central.  Those regions, should they really get what they deserve from Covid, won't have any GOP voters left come November.  That's where a Democrat could sneak in a win.  But NW Ga is all in on trumplandia.

"Based on what I've seen, the initial statements by Republicans (where they said they were 'appalled' or whatever) were just to cover their asses," Jeffrey Lewis Lazarus, a political science professor at Georgia State University, told TPM by email. "No big GOP names or groups have stepped in to significantly help Cowan - I think maybe Steve Scalise held one fundraiser for him, but that's it." (Scalise did, in late July).

Yep. The GOP didn't really care because that's a safely "red" seat. They needed that money to go elsewhere, like the Senate races and (now) the Presidential race.

"I'm appalled", said every hope member as they tacitly supported everything she said and did.

Conservatives are now brokering in outright lies and conspiracy theories. At least in the past they would make that item 3 or 4. This biatch is running on a platform of pizzagate and that there is a mystical skyperson on 4/8(?) Chan that knows all and is going to expose the "deep state" and their pedophile drug running ring.

How long before we discover she farked the 14 year old neighbor boy after supplying him meth?

Oh lawd!  Some choice pull quotes:

The fact that the Republican party has any qualms about alienating QAnon candidates and their supporters is, on its face, startling.

LOL! Startling for who? I love the idea that the party establishment has been so oblivious to what is going on with their constituency.

"I don't think people holding up a Q sign at a Trump rally have really invested thought about the myriad propositions involved in QAnon,"

Those morons haven't HAD a thought - ever!  Good luck with the future of your party, losers.

To prove your point, next door in my district the GOP runoff yesterday was won by a candidate who had an assault rifle on his campaign signs. He likely will replace Doug Collins, meaning NE Georgia is no less batshiat insane

By the time she's running for her 5th term, the question among Republicans won't be "Do you believe in QAnon?" But, "Are you ready to storm the White House and free the child that President Harris is keeping there?"

Remember the crisis of faith in Never Trumpers is they had assured themselves that red meat to the base was 90% a signalling device. They knew their supporters didn't REALLY think Obama was secretly born in Kenya or that they recognized that kicking out all the illegal immigrants was not a realistic policy goal, they just cheered those things on for what they represented and it pissed off the libs if you said it. At the end of the day those people were voting for the Republican party for tax cuts and maintaining traditional social norms, right?

Then it turned out that no, for a large part of the base they ARE here because they expected the red meat to be official stated policy positions of the party, and they are thrilled to vote for people ready to follow through on that.

cherryl taggart: Ah, Northwest GA, Chattanooga's suburbs, hillybilly heroin heaven.  Where they can't recruit foster parents for relatively normal kids because there is a large residential facility for very disturbed children nearby, so they all get lumped together.  Where the carpet mills provided subsistence wages and discouraged kids from getting an education to maintain a steady labor pool, while fighting every effort to maintain a minimal level of cleanliness to the water table.  Where getting a job in Atlanta is considered to be an announcement of homosexuality because why else leave that cultural mecca of Chattanooga?


Hey now. I've actually heard all sorts of great things about the arts/culture scene in Chattanooga, to speak nothing of their fabulous high-speed internet. Just saying there are way worse places to land on the surface.

I'm just waiting for her to perform a citizen's arrest of Pelosi on the House floor. I mean, how else are they going to act in Congress if their official position is that their opposition are child molesters who sacrifice kidnapped children in Satanic rituals to feast on their life extending goo?

Because the entire Tea Party movement was the Republican donors rebranding the party after their previous iteration farked everything up.  The racism was a key selling point to drive turnout.

I agree.  They make good whiskey there. Plus Chattanooga is halfway between Nashville and Atlanta which has proven convenient.

Ah from the same districts that parents are sending their school aged kids off to fight in The Great War Of COVID-19(missed Cherokee County by that much).  These are N.W. fringe Atlanta counties btw.  My brother lives in the 11th district and unfortunately fits right in.

So Brave. Much Patriotic.

On a deck of a 275' luxury yacht floating off a caribbean island, key GOP mega donors enjoy their eastern european "escorts" while discussing finding additional support for the Republican party to try and bolster Trump's tanking numbers...

"Well, we already brought in the Nazis, White Supremacist, Neo-Confederates, LGBT Hate Groups, Evangelicals and Tea-Party. Anyone know where else we can find people stupid enough to support Trump to pick up a few more percentage points?"

"Hey, what about those Q people on 4Chan?, I hear they are dumber than a box of rocks and will believe any farking thing you put on the internet. These idiots spend years sharing child pornography and then spun it as trying to stop child sexual exploitation and convinced thousands of people to get on board with some insane story that Hillary was running a pedophile sex ring out of the basement of a popular pizza parlor in DC that didn't actually have a basement. What if we got our people to start dropping Trump into their conspiracy theory as the person behind the curtain controlling Q?"

"Do we really want to openly attract and support a group that spends 95% of it's time obsessing over pedophilia? I mean I get the whole Roy Cohn, accuse the other side of what you are doing schtick, but isn't this one a bit close to the mark considering we don't know how the Maxwell/Epstein case is going to shake out?"

"Fark it, it's not like we can scrape the barrel any further, may as well toss the thing over and dig under it. I don't know about you, but I am not interested in meeting an US Attorney General appointed by Biden. I will make a call to our people in Ukraine and get it going."
