Black and Blue, and Abrams Too
Without going too deep into it, Team Evil lost bigley, thanks to Stacey Abrams as Raphael Warnock (D) defeated grifter Sen. Kelly Loeffler (R) to become the first Black Democratic Senator from Georgeduh, and Jon Ossoff (D) has presumably defeated grifter Sen. David Perdue (R) with most of the outstanding votes in Democratic strongholds. So to sum it up, Georgia turned blue-ish, elected two Democratic Senators, one Black and the other Jewish and You’re Fired’ed notorious feather-nesting grifters, a white billionaire and a white millionaire.
Effectively, amply be-chinned Mitch McConnell was defeated last night, too. Tiger Beat says:
Senate Majority Leader MITCH MCCONNELL won’t escape the conflagration, either. He refused to allow a clean vote on sending Americans $2,000 Covid stimulus checks, putting Loeffler and Perdue in a bind as the two (a billionaire and millionaire, respectively) fumbled to explain why they were against “stimmy” checks before they were for them. Warnock, Ossoff and Biden had an easy response: Vote for us and you’ll get help.
Quote of the night:
“When you tell people, your vote doesn’t count and has been stolen, and people start to believe that, then you go to the two senators and ask the secretary of state to resign and trigger a civil war in the Republican Party when we need to unite, all of that stems with his decision-making since the Nov. 3 election.”
–Gabriel Sterling spokesperson for Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger on CNN.
Comrade Prznint Stupid has now lost: 1) The House, B) The Senate, and iii) the Whitey House all during the 4th Reich. All he has left is the very stacked Judiciary and that might fall, too, as President-elect Joe Biden can now have his own justices appointed, and might be able to have some of his agenda passed. (Remember the Blue Dogs are now kingmakers again. Looking at you Manchin and Sinema.)
Adding to the shouting last night, violent right-wing Red Hats descended on DC and clashed with cops.
UPDATE 1: Tiger Beat:
With 98 percent reported, Ossoff had 51.2 percent of the vote compared to Perdue’s 49.81 percent — roughly a 16,300 vote difference. Under Georgia law, the losing candidate may request a recount if their lead is half a percentage point or less. If Ossoff is able to hold onto his current lead, then he will be the next Georgia senator. If not, Perdue is making clear that he will fight and likely go through the recount process.
UPDATE 3: Predictable –
