...he was sharing a runoff ticket with Sen. Kelly Loeffler, who possessed as much political skill and authenticity as a Tide pod.

That's an insult. To Tide pods.

It would be one thing if the GOP decided to rally around someone halfway decent, but Donald Trump? A career criminal. A failed businessman many times over. A garbage reality show star who has been through multiple divorces. The only reason I can think is that the Russians have dirt on most of them.

I don't care.  But I do care that MGT won her primary with some 70%!!!

I'm not pissed that people voted for her.  People are idiots.  They will vote purely on name recognition.  But WTF was she even allowed on the ballot?

Why are ANY sitting Congresspeople, who had ANYTHING to do or say in support of the 1/6th events, even allowed to run again?  They should have been expelled.  Since they weren't they should have been simply disqualified from running.

If you are a traitor, you should not be running for office.  And, btw, she is only one of a few of those "big lie" people that are winning primaries.  If some of those governors win their elections, there will literally be no such things as actual elections in those states any more.

That is not just hyperbole.  That is their plan.  That is the platform on which they are running.

WHY IS THIS ALLOWED?!

Democrats think it says something important that Trump has lost 3 out of the 111 endorsements he's made this year. It does... it means Trump is still the leader of the Republican party.

Compare that to Democrat candidates refusing to let Biden or Kamala stump for them. The Democrat part has no leader.

I'm skeptical about the 'Success in one thing'.  These people are con artists.  Their success - guaranteed it wasn't acquired morally.
 
2022-05-25 12:35:06 PM  
The biggest casualty of the Trump era is the media and elites talking point that the wealthy are the best and the brightest.
We have found out that many are actually very lucky idiots and our system has made it almost impossible for you to fail once you are part of the club. Always at the expense of the real working class.

Perdue's "skill" in business consisted of being born in the right family and having the right connections.

SuburbanCowboy: The only reason I can think is that the Russians have dirt on most of them.


A few of them, probably.  The fifteen who got called to Moscow in July 2018 at least.

But, for most of them, it's not that exactly. It's just that they're deeply removed from the rural Fox News watching, Dollar General shopping, Branson visiting base.  The pols don't really understand them any more than their base understands international diplomacy.  (Nor does golden shiatter Donnie himself understand the proles). Yet, Trump is the shibboleth.  It's a "I get you, you're my tribe I'm your tribe" card.

I would have titled it: "When Assholes Get What's Coming to Them: A Love Story"

It is still hilarious that he knew "The election was rigged!" was a stinker of an electoral position during his runoff and he refused to endorse that while campaigning, but the second he lost the runoff he switched to "oh, I knew it was stolen the whole time and if I was Governor I would have sent alternate electors to DC" in the hopes it would win him the primary.

They liked the way he brought out the racist vote.

"Its not even close. Kemp is up by 50 points. "

"Major blow to our freedom and Constitution. "

"Kemp was Trump's number one target. For him to do THIS well is a true indication that all politics are local. "

"Well, it has to sting. Trump was all in against Kemp. Even spent money on Perdue. "

"You can believe it or not, but I live here and I know it was stolen. "

"NO WAY Georgians who are Republican would have voted for Raspenberger NO WAY!! They will BOTH be defeated in the general BANK ON IT!!! "

"75k Dems voted in the Republican primary election. "

"The Republican-conservative coalition shrinks to 40% when the conservatives leave the coalition.
Say hello to Governor Abrams and a new Democrat Secretary of Soros, Georgians!"

"MAGA turnout was twice what was expected and Raffensperger is over 50% with 75% of the vote counted.
I cannot wrap my brain around how that could have happened in a fair election."

"Goodbye Georgia. It will be solid blue in 8 years. "

"Trump is the new GOP King maker. The Kemp anomaly is the exception that proves the rule. "

He's always been a corrupt, grifting clown.  Most of these rich "businessmen" are scumbags who Farked many over getting "rich".  Let's not normalize his Sh*tty behavior.

He he ran for congrease because he was convinced he wouldn't ever lose and would make bank on all the inside information.

You don't think that Pinocchio** forced them to give Kushner a security clearance for nothing, did you? He handed all the stuff over to FIL. Look what they had on Cawthorn, and he was only 27 yrs. old. Now imagine all the shady stuff the older ones have hiding in their closets.
