(Mediaite)   Herschel Walker boasts that he has support from experienced politicians like Donald Trump (even though Trump has been banned from coming to Georgia), while his opponent only has support from non-political celebrities like Barack Obama   (mediaite.com) divider line

Walker's fundraising must be in the toilet, because ban or no ban, if Donnie smelled money the Traveling Moron Show would be setting up in the parking lot of the Boar's Nest as we speak.

It's payday. Already voted, but sent the Warnock campaign some more $.

Trump has four years of executive experience. Obama was a "community organizer."

Cannot afford to be involved in another Georgia election fraud.

Jail time as a persistent offender.

"President Obama is a celebrity..."

Ignoring that he's only a celebrity BECAUSE he was (a good) President - and that the last celebrity we elected was not only a shiat President, but is also a shiat-tier celebrity now (he was D-List at the height of The Apprentice) - is Walker sour-graping because people like Obama?

"Warnock is cheating by having popular politicians stump for him! No fairsies!"

Remember when Rush Limbaugh told a caller to take the bone out of her nose and call back and GOPers laughed? Or how GOPers said black athletes sound uneducated in front of cameras and said they should stick to sports? And why does Obama sound like a robot-must be that he has trouble reading from the teleprompter?

Herschel Walker was literally on a show called Celebrity Apprentice.

I forget who hosted that thing.  Some has been.

"..and everyone has been doing a lot of things for me,"

More than 50% of the state of GA doesn't want you to hold office, dumba**

After 2 years of entomology in College, I can safely say, I've known Gnats with higher IQ's than Walker.

Warnock is currently running this great ad:  https://jezebel.com/raphael-warnock-hilariously-trolls-herschel-walkers-biz-1849826009

It's basically people watching Herschel Walker give speeches and their reactions.

An old woman also says "What the hell is he talking about?" and this is the first time I've seen hell in a campaign ad.

You've got to watch it just for the part where Herschel talks about vampire movies.  It's delightfully ridiculous.  Well, it would be if he wasn't going to receive 48% of the vote.
 
2022-11-30 8:44:49 AM  
How can anybody bring themselves to vote for him?

How much are they being paid?

I feel bad for the guy. He clearly is suffering from CTE, and clearly doesn't have a full time caregiver.

He has no business running for office, but nobody to prevent him from doing so.

It doesn't feel right to laugh at him.

FTFA:

"President Obama is a celebrity and that seems to be where Raphael Warnock is getting his money from, celebrities," he said. "He's not going to win this race. I told people before he may outraise me in money, but I guarantee you he won't get more votes than I'm going to get."

Dear GQP Voters,

Donald Trump was on a show literally called "Celebrity Apprentice."

It's a lot of hard work for TFG and the GOP to steal 90 cents of every dollar raised for Walker, ya know >.>

I'd feel bad for him if he wasn't such a garbage human being looking to help destroy democracy.
 
2022-11-30 8:50:57 AM  
Walker's stories about bulls and werewolves and vampires offer an interesting insight to what's going on in his head. Neil Gaiman stuff, apparently.

They're being paid nothing. They want a Republican in office, and they don't care who it is.

I'm not laughing.

But if I were, I'd feel justified. He is clearly a terrible person, and was, long before he had his marbles rattled.

The GOP should be ashamed of themselves for dragging that doofus into the national spotlight, but we all know they won't be because they're incapable of feeling shame.

You know that meme that gets posted here that says "He's just so stupid" so patently applies to Donnieboy that you know exactly who's being referenced without being told?

Goodbuddy Herschel is giving Donnie a run for his money.
 
2022-11-30 8:54:00 AM  
I know we've had politicians in the past who were unqualified for a variety of reasons, but Walker Georgia Dumbass has to rank wayyyyyyy up there in terms of just how unqualified he'd be for the office.

He's the best example we likely have to demonstrate the broken nature of the current system we're operating in.

Majin_Buu: Hershey Squirt doesn't even know what planet he's on.


You know how EMTs will ask basic questions to determine head trauma or concussions? They ask stuff like what state you're in, the year, who the President is.

(Reportedly, Walker said he was happy to be in Texas...at a campaign event in Georgia.)

I'm 98% certain a trained EMT would take one look at him and call in massive brain damage, as he would get any and all questions wrong.
 
2022-11-30 8:54:39 AM  
The very fact that this is a run-off speaks poorly of Georgia, AFAIC.

The Republicans could've run a ham wearing a wig and glasses, and have achieved the same results, it would appear.

Many people are asking "Why does GA have a runoff?"

Long answer:  https://www.11alive.com/article/news/politics/georgia-runoff-elections-why/85-f6dfd24f-4576-42fd-bf38-330f8ece8c53

Short answer:  to prevent black people from winning statewide elections

This.

The GOP voters just want someone with an R after their name, and the party leadership only want a lap dog, someone who will do and vote as they're told without question. To them, that Walker is Black just means the GOP can claim they aren't racist.

Trump doesn't know how government works. I wouldn't call that experience.  Even after being in office for 4 year..  Slow learner.

I hope they weren't living together, because that would be a sign of mass hysteria.

I think the bigger topic being lost in all of this, is that whoever Georgia elects, be it a Reverend or a Werewolf, they will be protected from vampires.
