    President Obama's going down to Warnock's Georgia tomorrow, Prima Donnie.

    The disrespect being shown to Donald by Georgia Republicans is beyond the pale. Let the man campaign for the other most incompetent, least qualified candidate!

    Lying is a qualification to run as a Dem why do you attack Walker on alleged lies about himself?

    Look who just got elected to lead the Congressional Liberal Black Caucus

    Congressional Black Caucus Elects Dem Who Had Years-Long Affair With Intern as Chair
    Self-described 'devoted family man' Steven Horsford threatened wife with legal action if she spoke up about his affair with 21-year-old

    The Congressional Black Caucus elected a new chair this week: Nevada Democrat Steven Horsford, who ran for Congress as a "devoted family man" after cheating on his wife with a 21-year-old intern.

    The caucus—which bills itself as the "conscience of the Congress"—announced the move on Wednesday, with outgoing chairwoman Joyce Beatty (D., Ohio) saying she is "confident our power and our message are in capable hands." Horsford's ascent to the top of the caucus comes roughly two years after the Democrat admitted to a years-long extramarital affair with Gabriela Linder. The pair met in 2009, when Linder was a 21-year-old Hill intern and Horsford was a 36-year-old state lawmaker. The affair, Linder said in May 2020, initially lasted a year and a half before it resumed from 2017 to 2019, which overlaps with Horsford's time in Congress.

    After she revealed the affair, Linder advised Horsford—who was running for Congress as a "devoted family man"—to "step out of public office for some time" and "do some atoning." But Horsford stayed in the race, secured reelection in November 2020, and filed to run for a third consecutive term roughly a year and a half later—a decision his estranged wife Sonya Douglass blasted in a March Twitter thread.

    "I have remained silent for nearly two years and want it to be clear that I am not enjoying the pain that my children and I continue to suffer since [Horsford] told me the day after Mother’s Day about his 10-year affair AFTER already speaking to his staff and attorneys," Douglass wrote. "And that he would choose to file for reelection and force us to endure yet another season of living through the sordid details of the #horsfordaffair with #mistressforcongress rather than granting us the time and space to heal as a family."

    Trump, by popular demand, not showing up and campaigning for yet another Republican loser he inflicted on Georgia, clearly helped Walker, but his refusing to kick in a few shekels from his so-called Trump Super-PAC was an unusually savvy allocation of funds by the Mar-a-Lago archivist. (Trump can take vindictive delight in McConnell's Senate Leadership Fund spending heavily on yet another Georgia loser that Trump forced upon the GOP.)

    One benefit for the GOP will be that Republicans will finally stop swallowing the Cry Baby Loser's fake aspersions on vote-by-mail that has cost them in election after election.

    (Trump, as usual, voted by mail in November, of course.)

    Herschel Walker had once been a hero in Georgia. Then he was Trumped. Add him to the long list of once-reputable folks whose reputations were egregiously soiled by straying into Trump's foul orbit. Recall the Giuliani plunge from America’s Mayor to Trump’s Lackey.

    Walker lived in Texas for 20 yrs before announcing his Georgia Senate run.

    "As I was sitting in my home in Texas, I was sitting in my home in Texas, and I was seeing what was going on in this country. I was seeing what was going on in this country with how they were trying to divide people.”

    CNN also said Walker gave at least four interviews about his Georgia run from his Texas home.

    "In a campaign speech earlier this year, Herschel Walker, the Republican candidate for US Senate in Georgia, said: “I live in Texas.”

    It also means less stupidity in the Senate.

    There's enough of that without the addition of Walker. Warnock isn't going to raise the intelligence bar.

    My left big toe is smarter than Walker. Warnock is much smarter.

    Is it old fashioned to say Warnock got more votes?

    'Warnock's crime list is hidden somewhere in Georgia alongside Trump's missing 11,780 votes.

    Maybe pointing to the fact that like 100,000 more votes for Warnock could be bragging?

    Is the GOP's collective ability to draw analogies there, too?
