It was a bad night for grifters, but a good night for the good guys:
Democrat Jon Ossoff had the stage to himself Sunday night, with the exception of an empty podium, as Sen. David Perdue stayed away from the Atlanta Press Club debate. After introducing Ossoff, moderator Russ Spencer introduced Perdue, with the camera focused on the blank space above the lectern.
When the question-and-answer portion of the debate came, Ossoff was allowed to ask the podium the question he would have asked Perdue, and then answer the question himself.
If you cringed at the Clint Eastwood-like echo of debating a chair, you were not alone, BUT it was pretty good! Mr. Ossoff explained that Perdue wasn’t present because Perdue didn’t want to incriminate himself over his insider day trading and grifting. That is gonna leave a mark.
Meanwhile, at the Loeffler-Warnock debate:
“Senator Kelly Loeffler repeatedly refused Sunday to acknowledge that election in November, as she debated her Democratic opponent, Reverend Raphael Warnock, ahead of twin Georgia runoff elections that will determine which party controls the Senate…lost re-
“Her Democratic opponent Warnock blasted the senator for “casting doubt” on a legitimate election. “The people have spoken on the presidential election, and they’re waiting on their senator to be focused on them, not the person in the White House.”
“However, Loeffler, again and again, tacitly admitted Mr. Trump’s defeat by casting the runoffs necessary to prevent a leftward march. ″Everything is at stake in this election, the future of our country,” she said, alluding to the high-stakes battle for control of the Senate.
And if you listened to this thing, you would be excused for believing that Rev. Warnock’s first name is not Raphael, but “Radical Liberal,” as she used that combo seemingly each time she said his name. Politico’s morning email thingie says it was more than 12 times.
