I meeeeean, can we agree that Charlie’s posts provide plenty of professionalism and the rest of the posts can be more gossipy (entertaining) in nature?
The Ox (everyone’s favorite political pinata) got indicted – and crickets? on a Friday?
Charlie, I’ll help with the social posts again if you’d like – ha!
Nothing on a Primary election day? Stick a fork in it Lawton.
Some interesting details on how Kemp crushed Perdue/Trump.
I wonder about Perdue’s judgement when not looking at a balance sheet: he was a zero senator, ran a misguided campaign against Ossoff, doubled down on a failed strategy in the runoff, made the quixotic choice to take on Kemp, then showed nothing in the campaign. He would have been much happier joining his co-loser Kelly Loeffler as backroom finance guy. Enjoy cocktail hour Dave.
Hice got his plow cleaned by Raffensperger, and it couldn’t happen to a nicer theocrat. Hice is a leading example of how far a worm with a radio show and confidence he speaks for god can go in politics. We won’t miss you, you worthless shit. The sooner you leave office the better.
To replace Hice in Congress in the 10th, it’ll be Mike Collins, son of the late congressman and best known for driving a big rig with “Trump Agenda” painted on the side, in a run-off with Trump-endorsed multi-party nutter Vernon Jones. Barring a miracle, one of them will brush off the dem candidate in November. Deepest red Georgia can be a lonely place.
I would feel bad for Perdue, as a victim of a con man, if it wasn’t for all the obvious lack of effort to research or enunciate facts, and an apparent desire for political power that dwarfed all logic and realities. While I can hear the collective sigh of relief from so many re: Perdue and Hice, with credit to Kemp and Raffensperger, there remains an active fountain of ignorant, immoderate, and liberty-confused candidates to yet attend to.
Maybe this space will become more active as moderation emerges as a winner.
