It’s shocking that this bozo has a chance to win a run-off election

Seriously, why would anyone vote for a guy who says, If we was ready for the green agenda, I’d raise my hand right now. But we’re not ready right now … What we need to do is keep having those gas-guzzling cars, ’cause we got the good emissions under those cars? It makes no sense. It’s stupid.

Republicans understand it, though, because that’s how stupid they are, and they will vote for him.

    They like him because he is the perfect republican candidate. He won’t think, he won’t interfere, he’s nothing but a guaranteed party-line vote.

    Why are we running such a train wreck of a human being? Because we can.

    Just like their messiah can get away with a lifetime of criminality….

    The problem with US politics:
    Democrats need to fall in love with a candidate to support them.
    Republicans just fall in line.

    The good news is that with control of the Senate no longer hinging on his election, Republicans are likely to lose motivation to vote in the runoff.

    I don’t agree with Warnock’s religion. But, I truly appreciate and support how decent and caring Warnock is.
    And, It is Terribly Troubling that so many people are willing to vote for a lying, ignorant Tackling Dummy!!

    Seems like a racist joke by the GOP honestly. There just has to be more articulate, intelligent Black Republicans in GA to run but they chose him. They won’t even allow to be appear on TV interviews alone. I doubt Walker understands he’s being used.

    Re: shermanj @ #6…
    I tend to be leery of ministers (and the like) running for office. On the other hand, the Republicans have (collectively) gone so far into the crazy, that I’d take a minister over almost anything the R’s run. Walker doesn’t make it out to the “almost” category.

    Of course it is. He’s the stereotypical black man that they hate and they are using him to try to defang the black vote. Their assumption is that black people are so stupid, they will fall for it. It’s racist at multiple levels.

    I don’t think it’s a GOP meritocracy thing. The primary reason Walker is where he’s at is because he played for Trump’s New Jersey Generals from 1983-85 in the USFL. Full stop. Trump still likes him. So he’s running for Senate.

    Amongst right leaning Georgian voters that he was a college standout for the Bulldogs may add sentimental value. But loyalty between Walker and Trump may play the primary if not exclusive role in his current status.

    He’ll always vote at his party’s call
    and he’ll never think of thinking for himself at all.

    Apologies to G&S

    American exceptionalism – this guy is the dumbest most ignorant candidate ever to run for election in any country at any time. And Georgia must be the most ignorant electorate ever – he could easily win!

  12. unclefrogy says

    back in the day I heard some of the guys in the barracks call guys like Walker “tomin’ charley suckass”
    the answer to why Walker is he is an “uncle tom” there to siphon off black votes.

    @ nomdeplume : “American exceptionalism – this guy is the dumbest most ignorant candidate ever to run for election in any country at any time.”

    Well, he’s certainly in contention but Sarah Palin,Louie Gohmert ( ), Marjorie Taylor Greene and from here in Oz the likes of Malcolm Roberts ( ), Barnaby “Beetrooter” Joyce and, if only for the very shortest of short times, Mal Meninga whose entire aspiring political career can be seen here (although at least our sporting star turned pollie knew when to quit) all give pretty solid competition for that dubious title.

    So, he had some connection to Trump that didn’t sour over time therefore Trump believes he’d make a good Senator despite all evidence to the contrary? That actually makes sense given the people, such as Trump, who we’re dealing with here.
