2022-10-04 8:05:32 AM  
So, he aborted it?
 
2022-10-04 9:07:59 AM  
Hopefully Warnock shows anyway and takes questions from the audience and it gets full coverage.
 
2022-10-04 9:08:17 AM  
He refused to show up for the debate, just as he refused to show up for his kids.
 
2022-10-04 9:08:22 AM  
He sent a check to the debate lady and told her to get rid of it.

2022-10-04 9:09:31 AM  
Lol, he's an idiot but he seems to have figured out that yesterday's news means he has to stay away from all but the most friendly right wing "news" fluffers until November.
 
2022-10-04 9:09:53 AM  
They should still hold it, and have someone do a powerpoint of all of his public statements on matters related to the questions. Those can be his answers. Heck, have his staff do the powerpoint, so they can still have a say.

Well, he didn't know he had a few of them.

Pretty sure Walker's best campaign strategy all along was to not speak.  Ever.

On the plus side, he's finally learning how to pull out.

Did he travel to New York to have it aborted?
 
2022-10-04 9:12:10 AM  
I imagine that we won't even have debates in 15 years.
 
2022-10-04 9:13:01 AM  
Did anyone seriously think Walker would get on a debate stage?
 
2022-10-04 9:13:02 AM  
If they were theatrically inclined (unlike Clint) they could pull off a debate against an empty podium.  Clint completely blew that one, but anyone with an ounce of acting ability could pull off a masterpiece of the 'empty podium' setup.

Fark Clint.  Couldn't act when he was young, and got worse as he got older.
 
2022-10-04 9:13:22 AM  
Have the debate, with a cutout cardboard standee of Walker. Ask it questions, and play back random recordings of things Walker's said. It will have the same effect as a real debate with him.
 
2022-10-04 9:13:54 AM  
I bet it's the one that has no problem stringing a coherent sentence together.
 
2022-10-04 9:14:28 AM  
Not his fault.  He drove to the city on the highway.  But he came a sign that said "Savanah Left" so he turned around and went home.

no, they know they have control of the elections so they no longer have to pretend as though they need to win votes.
 
2022-10-04 9:14:38 AM  
What I don't get is why he doesn't just show up, and refuse to follow the rules.  It worked for Lauren Boebert.  He already has lowered expectations with his whole, "aw shiucks, I'm just a country boy" BS.  His supporters don't care, and he might actually pick up a few sympathy votes from idiots who both sides everything.
 
2022-10-04 9:16:04 AM  
I knew Walker would be a no-show. They should still have the debate and just continue note, repeatedly, that the Republican candidate has not made himself available to Georgia voters.

Public debates held by a uniform, non-partisan, long established rules are an integral part of a functioning democracy.

GED Barbie only has to get votes from a small district known as Sex Offender Junction.

Hersch has to get voters from all over an entire state.

How about an empty chair for Herschel and someone answering for him?

If I were an R, I'd report Herschel had a run in with a baffle plate rupture on board a J-class training vessel.  Wheel in Walker with the beep beep chair.  Of course, Herschel would mess that up.

Hopefully it's smoother than your setup.

No offense, but that was clumsier than Anne Frank on a ski jump.

He's simply terrified of being in an uncontrolled environment where anything might be asked.

It's going to be sooner then that. I think sometime this decade.

Walker couldn't find enough scrabble tiles to eat to drop his responses.
 
2022-10-04 9:24:28 AM  
"I'm a country boy. I'm not that smart. He's a preacher. (Warnock) is smart and wears these nice suits. So, he is going to show up and embarrass me at the debate Oct. 14th, and I'm just waiting to show up and I will do my best."

If he claims he's not smart enough to handle a debate, how the hell will handle congressional debates?

"Walker is also the same person who claimed he graduated in the top 1% of his class at the University of Georgia, which was reportedly a lie."

That should honestly tell people that Walker isn't worth the space he takes up. HOWEVER! This is America in 2022 where people think horse paste is a valid medical treatment for humans. So....

I don't think it's him that's terrified because he's simply too stupid to understand. His handlers don't want him on stage.

He went to the University of Georgia so he is probably correct in stating he graduated in the top 1% of his class.

It's a 2 point race because republicans are relentless and vote in EVERYTHING, and it doesn't matter to them who is running with (R) next to their name. They could be a child molester. They would still get 40% or more because "well, what am I supposed to do? Vote for a democrat?!?"

2022-10-04 9:31:17 AM  
Based on the comments I can see the misleading article headline has some of you fooled. There's a debate scheduled for the the 14th. It's still on. There was another debate The Telegraph and Georgia Public Broadcasting wanted to host on the 16th. Walker never responded to an invitation to that one so they cancelled it. Article attempted to conflate the cancellation of a relatively unknown debate with a more publicized debate that's still happening and you fell for it. Good job.

That was what happened in Alabama in the Senate Runoffs a while back. Vote Blue Dog Democrat or a Pedo Republican and the Democrat BARELY won.
 
2022-10-04 9:36:21 AM  
He had absolutely nothing to gain by debating, and unfortunately, only a little to lose. His voters are locked in and would have been no matter who was on the R ticket. I'd wager that only the densest of swing voters would have been swayed away from voting for him by watching Warnock wipe the floor with his ass.

Self-reflection just isn't a strength of the average Republican voter. How you could vote for an obviously brain-damaged, barely-literate candidate like Walker is beyond me, and yet here we are. The guy makes Trump and GWB look like William F. Buckley, FFS.

And unfortunately, you will find a sad number of "progressives" on fark who would look at that election and think "ugh, blue dog dem. What's the point anyway? Dems need to EARN my vote!" and would either not vote, or write-in/vote 3rd party as a protest, and the pedo (R) would win due to low (D) turnout.

He understands. He constantly lies about his accomplishments and intelligence because he's extremely insecure.

Except that he never graduated at all. That's why he went into TFG's Dollar Store football league. At the time, the NFL didn't draft players that weren't at least seniors in college.

Nimbull "Walker is also the same person who claimed he graduated in the top 1% of his class at the University of Georgia, which was reportedly a lie."

My guess is he barely showed up for class but apparently he was carrying a B average when he left college for the NFL.  This is the same university that handed a degree to Marjorie Taylor Greene.  Georgia Tech alums must find it all kind of amusing.

You're right though.  It's not a sure thing he loses.  So many republican voters see everything, any issue and any election, as another chance to scream "F#CK YOU" to the libs.  No matter how incompetent or unqualified their candidate is they can smile as they once again stick to the snobs they hate so much.

I went on my morning walk the other day and noticed the singular Walker lawn sign in the neighborhood had been smeared with dog shiat. I chuckled. It was not there the next morning.
