    Republicans have certainly chosen a path of self destruction for some reason.

    Paranoid fantasy is the only alternative to honorably accepting the will of the electorate.

    If I win, I win; if you win, it's because of voting machines controlled by Italian satellites, dead people and ordinary poll workers so stealthy that they leave no evidence as required for legal redress.

    He's a resplendent fellow whose encyclopedic command of issues is only rivaled by his moral purity and fidelity to the truth, but he throws like a girl.

    I really don't see a lot of impact of this revelation. Maybe during a primary it would make a difference but not in the election. The vast majority of republicans will vote for him because it will help in regaining the senate. Those that are against abortion will still vote for Walker anyways because regardless of how he acted in the past, whether it is true or not, he will still vote with them against abortion and that is what really matters. Warnock is guaranteed to vote in favor of pro abortion bills so again the choice is obvious. If your hopes are on the remaining few GOP voters than think hypocrisy is a problem those republicans left the building long ago. So if you want to win this senate seat forget about the republican voters and concentrate on getting out your own vote.

    Wrong as usual.

    If the election is fair and open and transparent, the result is acceptable.

    If the election is fraudulent, then the result is fraudulent.

    The 2020 election was fraudulent. The more you insist it wasn’t the more convinced people are that it was fraudulent.

    Well, except for the part where there is no evidence, Rudy agreed there was no fraud in court, and 60 something lawsuits thrown out. Oh, and all the pro Trump Republican state officials who said no fraud.

    so, yeah, except for all those issues, totally fraudulent. Lmao.

    Nor any evidence to take to a court of law apparently.
    People really need to give up on the big lie if they wish to remain credible.

    I don't know if you're talking about Congressional elections where Republicans did quite well, or if the mysterious, unidentified dastards that stole an inexplicable "Landslide!" were highly selective, laser-focused, upon a single election, leaving no evidence of their vast conspiracy, and that unbelievable stealthiness explains why there have been no indictments or even one suspect named, after rabid Republican prosecutors and legislators have had two years to contrive something.

    It remains a matter of blowing gas and propagandistic poo poo, with no court anywhere amenable to the fantasy.

    For you, it is clearly dogma, but empirical data is woefully lacking.

    “One could make people believe the most fantastic statements one day, and trust that if the next day they were given irrefutable proof of their falsehood, they would take refuge in cynicism; instead of deserting the leaders who had lied to them, they … would admire the leaders for their superior tactical cleverness.”

    Hannah Arendt's “Origins of Totalitarianism”, 1951

    Pucker.

    Of course, one might ask how being a football has-been qualifies one for the U.S. Senate, even if he could fling the pigskin like Colin Kaepernick.

    Trump's magic worked before in Georgia.

    Just ask Perdue and Loeffler.

    Americans love their stars and celebrities.

    Georgia having a national championship team last year helped Walker immensely as it brought forth memories of the Bulldog football success of Walkers four years at UG.

    This is why you do not really present arguments, worth anyone's consideration: they are without factual bases. You are just contending things, you make up.

    WHERE IS THE SUPPORTING EVIDENCE OF "CHEATING?"

    At this point, luckily, that pipe dream (though it came uncomfortably close to becoming a waking nightmare) does not look like a good bet. How could Walker's support grow, any further? He's already got those, in his camp, who don't give a crap if he is a pathological liar (according to his own staff), and an absolute hypocrite. Any undecideds, at this point, are not going to be drawn to that, only repulsed by it.

    This is just their overconfidently showing their true intentions, and true character (or lack of it).

    Ex- NFL star should not count for dick, in the choice of a U.S. Senator. But Georgia's Republican Lt. Governor, in a recent interview, admitted that Walker's "scor(ing) touchdowns, in the 80s," was one of his only two qualifications; the other had been his being, "Donald Trump's friend." The Lt. Governor concluded, "that is not a winning strategy, any more."


    To U.S. Senator? Highly doubtful.

    If you're not drinking straight alcohol, "cut" with perhaps only a little bit of water, I really can't relate, anymore, to what you're doing.

    Nice of you to present false arguements. Just proves you cannot be trusted.

    Trump won, democrats stole it. Democrats also stole the 2 Georgia runoffs. They stole others as well.

    I do not present evidence of democrats stealing the 2 Georgia runoffs because anyone who believes those elections were fair and honest is beyond rational discussion.

    On other issues that are more debatable such as US involvement in Ukraine I presented factual rational arguements. Other people presented mindless opinion and ran away when challenged with conclusive counter arguements.

    One person resorted to dishonesty, remember? If not, look in the mirror.

    More, obvious B.S.
    What's it going to hurt, to offer your proof? If someone does not live in Georgia, and has not heard any news of cheating, how would that prove the person would be "beyond rational discussion," if presented with new information? The answer, of course, is that it wouldn't mean anything of the sort.

    Unless, perhaps your translated meaning had been: "anyone who has not already been brainwashed, through viewing the same websites as me (Battle3), which are the only repositories of this 'evidence,' would be beyond my reach." If that is the case, naturally, the question then centers upon the point of your throwing out unsupported charges which, because of their lack of supporting references/links, have the look of fake claims? Is this more effective, than corroborating your charges, with anything to underwrite them? Your excuse makes no sense, at all.
