It’s long been the position of MPS that we’d be better off without the un-democratic (little Dee) Senate. It doesn’t represent Wee the Peeples and seems to be both a cork in the rectum of progress, and the ground zero of grifters; speaking of which, today we find news of Senator Kelly Loeffler (R- Georgeduh). From Tiger Beat on the Potomac (thanks Charlie!) morning email thingie (who kindly dropped the lede that she sold her stocks in companies likely to be badly impacted by the Trump-Virus and bought stocks in medical supply companies and a company that makes teleworking software which would be positively impacted by the Trump-Virus):
WILL LOEFFLER LAST? — Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R-Ga.) has been engulfed by a political firestorm over the past several weeks, but the Senate newcomer insists she isn’t going anywhere. “Not only am I not dropping out, but I’m gonna win,” Loeffler told Marianne and Burgess in an interview. “And no one’s going to intimidate me into thinking that that’s the right course for our party, for our state, for our country. I’m working hard to help reelect the president. I’m working hard to win my seat and keep the Senate in Republican hands.”
Grasping grifter Loeffler is up against Rep.
LooneyTunes, er, Doug Collins who famously sat next to Rep. Jerry Nadler during the Impeachment and made faces that Possum Hollar ate up with a spoon:
We now turn our attention to our pals over at Electoral Vote, who give us their learned opinion:
Rather than giving up graciously for the sake of the Republican Party, she is doubling down and digging in her heels. In aninterview with Politico she insisted that she is not going to drop out and support her Republican opponent, Rep. Doug Collins (R-GA). The net result of her staying in is that much mud will be thrown by both Loeffler and Collins and whoever makes it to the runoff will be badly damaged against whichever Democrat also makes it. In theory, both Collins and Loeffler could end up in the runoff, but with Loeffler trailing so badly now, there is no way both of them can make the top two.
Add to this that Martha McSally is wildly losing in the Terrible Sand Kingdom of Arizonastan…
Senior political advisers to President Donald Trump warned Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell Thursday that Republican Sen. Martha McSally is falling dangerously behind in the critical swing state of Arizona…A McConnell spokesman said, “Leader McConnell is fully supportive of Senator McSally and believes she’s on a path to victory in November.”
…so we are beginning to see the outline of what will make amply be-chinned Mitch have bad dreams about standing near a window when he visits his paymaster in Moscow.
