Seriously, Georgia? Is this the man you want representing you?

Herschel Walker is trying to win the Republican nomination to the senate from Georgia. He’s popping into churches to reach his electorate.

Ooops, wrong clip.

He actually said that. Walker trotted out the most busted-ass, dead stupid, ignorant pony in their whole stable of broken-on-arrival, crippled, brain-damaged nags the creationists have, and the pastor praised him for getting too smart for his audience.

At one time, science said man came from apes. Did it not? Walker asked Chuck Allen, lead pastor of Sugar Hill Church, during Sunday’s event.

Every time I read or hear that, I think to myself, ‘You just didn’t read the same Bible I did,’ Allen replied.

Walker continued: Well, this is what’s interesting, though. If that is true, why are there still apes? Think about it.

You know, now you’re getting too smart for us, Herschel, Allen responded.

“You know, morons,” I finished for him.

He’s probably going to win the nomination.

    … while pulling the “why are there still apes” line.

    Evidently. Which, in my book, irreparably indicts democracy.

    Tell little Herschel about ecological niches. Like why titanothropes could not make it once rhinos evolved.
    But if H

    -But if Herschel want to challenge the bonobos and chimps for their ecological niche, I am willing to pay the airline ticket for him.

    I sincerely hope he’s the nominee. He’s incapable of winning a statewide election.

  6. chuckonpiggott says

    @6 Endymion. Don’t count on that. Voters do not consider stupid in weighing their votes.

    As for the bible. I’m sure I read the same one as “Pastor” Allen I just don’t accept it as a science text.

    Think about it, indeed. See, there’s your problem.
    People spend decades studying, researching, learning, experimenting, becoming experts in a field of science, and these dumbasses come along and give the matter five seconds of thought, and they know better than the experts. Shit like this is why I don’t even want to leave the house anymore. Herschel Walker has spent his whole goddamn life on athletic scholarship and now thinks he’s qualified to serve in the U.S. Senate.
    Yeah, go ahead and elect him, Georgia. Sure. Maybe down the road a piece you can trade him for some draft picks. Hey, it worked for the Dallas Cowboys.

    At least he is running as a Republican.
    It took me a while with Google to find that out.
    His campaign really doesn’t seem to emphasize that.

    Ooh! Ooh! I got this! If I’m descended from my grandmother, why do I have cousins?

    The most idiotic argument in an infinitely long list of idiotic arguments that Creationists have come up with.

  10. Walter Solomon says

    He also produced arrogant and annoying offspring. Even the fruit of his loins, “biblical” language I’m sure Walker would appreciate, is rotten.

  11. cgm3 says

    Whenever I hear that “argument”, the first response that always come to mind is “Well, why shouldn’t there still be apes?” (Yes, I know, common ancestors, but it makes as much sense as the “argument”.)

    I voted for Rev. Warnock in 2020, and I’m doing the same this November.

  12. dbarkdog says

    I would sometimes get the still monkeys question in class and would ask in turn whether people could live in the forest canopy on a diet of fruit and leaves. I would have to tweak that a bit for apes. The best part was that it naturally led to the idea of extinction through habitat destruction and other issues actually relevant in our lives.

    Walker won the Heisman Trophy. What more do you want?

    Side note. Walker’s first pro team was the New Jersey Generals. Trump bought the team a year later. The league had a salary cap. Trump got around that by giving Walker a “personal services” contract. Once a cheater…..

    So did O.J. Simpson. Does he still live in Florida? Maybe he should run for something there.

  15. drken says

    To be fair, Hershel Walker played his college ball before Prop 48 established minimum academic standards for scholarship athletes. There’s the very real possibility that he hasn’t seen the inside of a classroom since Junior High.

  16. zetopan says

    And then there is that minor fact that technically, humans [b]are[/b] apes.*

    *Although some act more like demented monkeys.
