With a nod to The Onion for the headline, Georgia Democrats have a full fledged problem on their hands. Unlike the “Resistance Summer” meeting of the DNC where Jon Ossoff gave a major speech that was closed press (It seemed open press would clash with the well guarded narrative of one desperate to get to Washington to work across the aisle with Republicans), the Netroots gathering in Atlanta was supposed to showcase a bold and unapologetic progressive movement undaunted by their string of failures since November and squarely preparing for victory.
“…was supposed to.”
This is what we have so far:
So the AJC’s headline that “Georgia Democrats seize the moment at Netroots” now has some perspective. Georgia Republicans will be lunching on popcorn today.
